The title of the book seemed interesting so I decided to try even though on the cover you have that cheesy picture of a bare chested man holding a sword and shield. But you can’t rely on the covers of books people would miss too many amazing books out there.
Unaware he is the second son of a powerful Viking Jarl, dark-haired Sean was raised in an Irish monastery, destined to become a man of letters. But then he offers shelter to a lovely young slave-and changes his life forever. For when Natasha is recaptured and dispatched to Russia aboard a Danish Viking ship, Sean knows that he must rescue her. With Viking blood coursing through his veins, he ventures through the high seas to an exotic land-seeking his heritage, his family, and his lady love.
Tasha had admired handsome, powerful Sean from afar and sensed that he was a man who would offer his protection when she fled her captors. Though their time together blossomed quickly into passion, cruel fate soon tore her from his embrace. Now, aboard a slave ship bound for Russia, Tasha is stunned to be reunited with her heart’s desire, who has been transformed into a Nordic warrior with bone-deep courage-and to whom she will pledge her own destiny…wherever it takes her.
Honestly I was excited to try Kathryn Hockett’s novel. I love reading about viking since that is part of my heritage. Now when I started it was a little slow but soon I was hooked on the characters.
I found the plot engaging and liked the subtle humor that was underneath. This is the third book to the series and after reading this one I am intrigued to see how the series all started with the three siblings.
Have you read anything by Kathryn Hockett?
