I really enjoyed this story.  Styr¿s struggle between his honor

I really enjoyed this story.  Styr’s struggle between his honor and his desire for Caragh is well written.  I can’t wait to read Ragnar and Elena’s story.

It is rare that I read romances taking place in Vikings' time, the Middle Ages, etc.. I usually stop in Victorian times because I do not really like the caveman play for a hero. I  don't appreciate either woman subject to the orders of men because they are only good to keep a home and have children.
So, It is true then that romance pleasantly surprised me.

Caragh is not weak or helpless. Certainly, it is a time of famine. She is weakened physically but not mentally. She is tenacious and determined to take care of the people she loves and not be intimidated by her Viking.
It is also a woman of honor. When she promises something, she keeps her words. An innocent who keeps her head on her shoulders and the control of her life. 
This is an interesting, curious and open to differences female character.


Styr is a gorgeous male in all its splendor. Arrogant, tough, overbearing but also protective, tender and faithful. He is the perfect hero subject to temptation that stays true to its principles.
A beautiful romance that transports you back in time.

    This book should have been called Thinking Sinful Thoughts with a Viking. If you are looking for a steamy harlequin romance than this is not the book for you. Styr is married and he honors his marriage vows, so no hanky panky between him and Caragh. Also considering it’s a Viking story I expect a lot more adventure, while they did go on a journey it’s missing those heart stopping suspenseful moments and swashbuckling action. Caragh is a very likable heroine. She is kind, intelligent, giving, and talks a bit too much. Styr is a bit of a brooder for my taste, but the circumstances of his life more than explain his behavior. While I’m not a fan of this book, it is a sweet well written story.

    When I first read the synopsis of the book I wasn't quite sure

    When I first read the synopsis of the book I wasn't quite sure I was going to like it, I mean it's a romance novel staring a married man and a woman not his wife! I WAS sure, however, that MW would have a good plot and great characters. Never having been disappointed with one of her books on I read...MW was sure to specify early on that Styr and Elena's marriage was not a love match but even so, you could still feel that they cared for each other. As usual you cant help but like MW's characters, each of her supporting characters you want to get to know, even the bad guys are written so well you like them....The story grab's you from the very beginning where you meet Styr and Elena on the longboat and learn that their marriage is on the rocks. Styr has set out for a new start in a new land to try and better things for them. Picking the wrong spot they are soon set upon by men from the village and Elena is kidnapped. Styr is then captured and chained by Caragh. Eventually he escapes, of course, because that's what heros do, and the hunt is on for his wife, his men and the man who kidnapped them. Their search takes them on many adventures and as Styr and Caragh grow closer, both to finding Elena and each other Styr has a hard time remaining faithful to his wife. I have to point out that you have to decide as you are reading whether or not he's cheating. Emotionally, in my opinion, he definitely is, but I think the definition of cheating is different for each person. I will say that no true intercourse takes place until Styr's marriage situation is resolved.I'm glad I decided to read this book! The ending is done in true Michelle WIllingham form, meaning I 1. didn't want it to end and 2. read the last page smiling and knowing I had read a great story. I can't wait for the second book in the Forbidden Vikings series Elena and Ragnar's story....

    I haven't read a Viking story since I finished Sandra Hill' s Vi

    I haven't read a Viking story since I finished Sandra Hill' s Viking series. I enjoyed the freshness of this book. The characters are well developed with lots of angst among them. There were battles to churn your stomach but not really full of gore. The love scenes were Hot Hot Hot!Wow!I wasn't expecting that. Don't skip this book. I already want to read the next book in this double series.
