Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“Her books are always fresh, romantic, inventive, hilarious.”
—New York Times bestselling author Susan Wiggs

 

New York Times and USA Today bestseller Sandra Hill brings her unique blend of passion, invention, and unparalleled wit to Avon Books—and in Viking in Love she delivers her most alpha of alpha heroes to date.  Viking in Love is Hill at her hottest, wildest, funniest, best—a gem of historical romance that showcases the magnificent talents that have compelled Booklist to praise her “wickedly wonderful” stories to the skies, while  prompting New York Times bestseller Christina Skye to rave about Hills “wildly inventive and laugh-out-loud fabulous” novels.

Review:

"Tenth-century England is beginning to feel a little old in Hill's latest Viking adventure, her first for Avon. This is a straight historical romance, not the time-travel scenario familiar from The Very Virile Viking and others in the Time of Your Life series, and without the inherent absurdity of eras colliding, the humorous anachronisms come across as forced and creaky. Breanne and her four sisters, Viking princesses all, have killed one sister's abusive husband, who inconveniently had strong ties to the misogynistic King Edgar. Their very distant cousin-by-marriage, Caedmon, has a stout castle well away from the scene of the crime, but he'll only allow them to stay if Breanne promises him 10 nights in her company — no holds barred. It's a familiar formula of war between the sexes and desire ruling all, and only Hill's fans are likely to enjoy the ride." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

She said . . .

Caedmon of Larkspur is the most loathsome lout I have ever encountered! When my sisters and I arrived at his castle, we were greeted by servants and children running wild, while Caedmon lied abed after a night of ale. No doubt there will be another child soon, because I must admit he's as handsome as he is virile. And I must endure him, for we are in desperate need of protection, though I can only imagine what this knight will demand of me in return . . .

He said . . .

After nine long months in the king's service, all I wanted was peace . . . not five Viking princesses running my keep. And the fiery redhead who burst into my chamber that first morning is the worst of all. Why, I should kick her out . . . but I have a much more wickedly delightful plan for Breanne of Stoneheim, one that will leave her a Viking in lust.
