Overview


Wessex, the last English kingdom to resist the raging Viking storm…

Those defending the land had pledged their loyalty to the new king—and in their hands lay the fate of a nation. Though English by blood, Ash had been raised among Vikings, and was driven beyond reason to prove his allegiance to king and country, only to find himself left for dead by an English traitor.

The Lady Gemma risked all to rescue the mysterious Ash. But though the wounded stranger consorted easily with the enemy, she could not fear him. And as the growing danger surrounded them, Ash would prove to be a man with the courage to risk not only life, but honor to save Gemma and earn her love!


Though English by birth, Ash had been raised among Vikings and was driven to prove his allegiance to king and country, only to be left for dead by an English traitor. Rescued by Lady Gemma, the two find themselves caught up in the battle for control of 9th-century England.

    What a waste...

    I really hate to be negative, but this was one of the most poorly written stories I have had the displeasure of reading. The characters barely speak to each other, and then only on short, choppy sentences. And that's how the entire book is written. I found myself wanting to add commas and white-out to parts where the author made too-short sentences. I had a very hard time getting into the story and following the plot. I just coulnd't get into it, and couldn't wait until it was over so I could read a book worth my $5.99. Save your time, save your money...just don't get this one!

    Well researched and entertaining

    By 872, the Viking raids have devastated the English countryside. Everyone is frightened as only Wessex remains as the last kingdom barely resisting the Viking assault, but have little hope of holding out much longer. The Viking won the last battle overwhelmingly................. Near the Mercian border, Lady Gemma finds a bloodied male lying in the forest. She knows he must be a warrior most likely a Viking as he has muscles while her side is skin and bone from starvation. Still she nurtures the injured man in spite of his warning her to leave him because he brings danger to her. Ash, an Englishman raised by Vikings, has sworn his fealty to the King, but has been betrayed by an Englishman not a Dane; his men murdered by treason. He plans to avenge their death, but first he must prove he lives up to the honor of Beowulf that Gemma expects of him while keeping her safe from a sly traitor as they begin fall in love with one another................... A FRAGILE TRUST is typical of the Dark Ages romances, but yet contains a fresh plot due to the courageous lead couple. Gemma risks all to nurse Ash back to health while he vows to keep her safe in a world where betrayal and violence are the norm. The story line brings out the late ninth century through tidbits like the Beowulf reference (could they really know of this Danish poem in England at that time?) and especially the impact on the people by the Viking raids. Helen Kirkman provides a terrific tale starring two honorable heroes struggling against treason and duplicity............ Harriet Klausner
