A Nun For the Viking Warrior

Our reviewer Em gave an A- to Lucy Morris’s previous Viking book, The Viking Chief’s Marriage Alliance. I found it closer to a B, but it was still an enjoyable book. I hoped I’d find something here that was at least as good, but I emphatically didn’t. Aimée Évreux, heiress to the Évreu ...

The Viking Chief’s Marriage Alliance

Reader, Viking romances are my jam.  I’m here for long-haired men with braids and beards and muscles for days, tattoos and runes, long-houses and long ships, long winters and starry night skies, cinnamon roll Chieftains, and Valkyrie-esque women.  More please.  Unfortunately, there are too few ...

Sandulf Sigurdsson is on the trail of the assassin who murdered his sister-in-law, whose death led his wi ...

Longing for Her Forbidden Viking

Ambitious Aevir, Viking warrior and freed son of an enslaved mother, lacks only an elite, wealthy bride to complete his rise in the world. Unfortunately, Saxon Ellan would come with nothing, and would even cost Aevir, since he’d have to buy off the man her father has pledged her to. Amidst Danish ...

Her Viking Warrior

Her Viking Warrior is an interesting blend of old school romance ideals (home and hearth and the power of alpha manhood are celebrated) and new school ones (so is the power of female ingenuity, toughness and fitness for leadership in battle).  The book does a fairly good job balancing these two dif ...
