She’ll always fight for what she believes in…

Betrayed by a brother she hardly trusted before the bloodthirsty Viking, Jarl Randvior Sigurdsson, attacks her home, Noelle Sinclair is conveniently bartered as a means to save her cowardly sibling’s skin. Forced to leave her homeland and accompany the petulant Viking to the untamed wilderness of central Norway, Noelle is ever-aware of the burgeoning dangers around her—including her weakening resolve to resist Randvior.

Should Noelle surrender to his resplendent charms and seduction, or fight with every ounce of strength she possesses to get home?

3 1/2 Star Review

This book was a good book for a rainy day, it wasn’t super hard to read and the plot flowed nicely. It, however, wasn’t a book that gripped you and didn’t let go until you were finished. Some of the language choices were inappropriate for the setting of the book, and the development of a relationship between the main characters could have been a little more thorough. I felt that while the emotion was there, there wasn’t really an explanation for it that seemed feasible, at least on the part of Randvior. I do believe that other then the authors word choices that she displayed an intense knowledge of the time period and that most of the book while maybe not historically accurate it was historically plausible. The characters were very well written, and the plot was tangible. The time-line flowed nicely and the author did a good job of giving the secondary characters depth, and the main villianess a truly hate-able mien. All in all, I don’t feel like I wasted my time reading it and I’m looking forward to the continuation of the series. I’d recommend it for someone looking for a light easy read.
