Viking Romance

Dream of Me

There's a big mystery at Bantam. They're touting Josie Litton as the next big thing, but the name is a pseudonym of a "successful" romance author who so far has been able to remain anonymous. If these two books are any indication, the publisher is right to create some buzz. I can't remember the last ...

Believe in Me

Believe in Me picks up soon after the first book leaves off. This second volume's plot is similar to the first an alliance is to be formed between the Saxons and the Norse Vikings. Again paranormal elements are utilized, but they continue to be less then fully realized. Lord Haw ...

Danegeld

I've had bad luck with paranormals in the past. I always hope for the best but often find the stories being too cute. Not so with Danegeld. Susan Squires does an admirable job of portraying life in the middle ages accurately, and there wasn't a talking animal or cloudy crystal ball in sight. ...

Danegeld

Danegeld. Hmm, odd title - clinch cover - the man looks a bit like John D'Salvo with blonde hair. As for the woman - nice jewelry - elegant dress - I didn't know the one shoulder style was popular back then - looks like she's going to an awards show. Let's check out the back blurb. Hmm, I think this ...

Ice Maiden

Since reading this novel, I've been wracking my brain for something good to say about it, and I've finally come up with one: it's recyclable. Since this is the first book I've read for review, I was really hoping to find something to recommend about it, but sadly, I didn't enjoy even a single moment ...

The Blue Viking

There are parts of The Blue Viking by Sandra Hill that I really didn’t care for, but there are also moments that are so funny that I didn’t mind too much. My impression of her writing is that it's rather odd, at least for me; I don't want to run out and buy all her other books, but parts of thi ...

Forbidden Passion

When I first put my hands on Forbidden Passion I thought it was a piping hot love story in a Viking setting. Given my past experiences with the accuracy level of other Viking romances, I gritted my teeth in advance, but they quickly unclenched. This is one romance that gets the facts mostly right, a ...

Come the Morning

Twelfth century Scotland is a wild and brutal place. Between the usual skirmishes, there is always the problem of Viking marauders. King David has been very careful to cultivate what relationships he could with some Vikings, but others continue to try and take the land. Because of this, the king ten ...

The Bewitched Viking

Sandra Hill has made the sub-genre of the humorous Viking romance her own. The Bewitched Viking follows The Reluctant Viking, The Outlaw Viking and The Tarnished Lady. All of these books share characters but do not have to read before you start this one. The Bewitched Viking tell ...

Viking!

I am hard put to define Viking! as a romance novel. It wasn't romantic. As far as being a novel goes, the only reason it can make that claim is because it (somehow) managed to get published. If you want to read a romance novel, do not read this book. Do not even buy it, as high sales statistics will ...
