Overview

Viking Nils Bjornsson turns his back on a warrior's reward to find his chieftain's stolen knife and erase the dishonor brought upon Nils's family. When he appeals to the Norse gods to send him a handmaiden to help him fulfill his pledge to bring the knife to his chieftain, he forgets how the old gods like to meddle in the lives of mortals.

Lady Linnea Sutherland knows her father wishes her to marry their neighbor Lord Tuthill. It is certain to be the perfect match for a Regency miss. But Linnea is looking for a hero, a man who excites her heart as boring Lord Tuthill does not. When she discovers Nils injured on the shore, she is caught up in the adventure of helping this handsome, dangerous man complete the vow he made nearly a millennium before. But first she must teach this Viking how to act like a Regency gentleman.

To help Nils means that Linnea must dare the ancient ways of his past and risk her future. In a game played in the Norse gods' hall of Asgard, two human hearts are of little consequence and love can become an ally or a foe.

Read an Excerpt

Swirling the wine in the bright blue glass, Nils regarded her closely as he lowered his voice. "I also recall you saying that Ethelred is no longer king of England."

"Not for almost a thousand years." She stiffened, and he knew she was as uneasy with this turn of the conversation as he was. "It is 1817."

"That term means nothing to me." Nils looked away from the abrupt compassion on her face. He did not want to be pitied. He was a warrior. Draining the goblet, he set it on the windowsill beside him.

"Ethelred was king of England around the year we would have called 990."

He clenched the fingers on his right hand into a fist. Slamming them into the arm of the bench, he ignored the shock on Linnea's face and how her servant whirled in her seat to stare at him, her eyes wide with terror. How could he have been so foolish? He had spoken of his need, hoping that Freya would heed his request to be left behind to finish his search when she had taken the other fallen warriors to Valhalla. She had heard him, but, for some reason he had yet to discover, had sent his plea to Loki. That wizard of mischief must have contrived this plan to keep him from both his reward in death and his hopes in life ... and sent Kortsson with him into this time.

Slowly he glanced at the window. The very window where Loki had perched in his dream. But had that been as real as what was around him now? He resisted the taunting laugh that throbbed through his head. His voice or Loki's? The dream may have been real, and this truly might be the nightmare he could not flee. But he could not imagine that even a fevered dream brought on by the festering of his wounds would create such ajourney to the future.

"Mr. Bjornsson, I am so sorry," Linnea whispered. "I know it makes no sense to you. It makes no sense to me, but I know what year it is. It is 1817. Search your mind. You will see that you know that, too."

"I know Ethelred is king of England."

"But I told you--"

He snarled a curse at her. Heaving himself again to his feet, he hopped to where a window opened on the sea side of this building. Ignoring the pain raging in his head, he fumbled as he tried to open the shutters on the window with a single hand. Several of the slats hung broken. When Linnea's slender/P>

His lips were on hers before she had a chance to protest. They tasted sweet, just as he had imagined. A tempting invitation to further pleasure that they could find when--

    Fergy fabulous with delightful time travel romance

    Lady Linnea Sutherland knows better than to wander around alone. However, she needs time to mull over the offer of a betrothal from her neighbor Lord Tuthill, Randolph Denner. At one time all Linnea wanted was to be a spouse to Randolph, but now with the opportunity at hand it no longer feels right. When she reaches the nearby beach, she finds a badly injured person lying there. His speech is strange and his clothing weird and tattered. Linnea gets help. <P> Linnea¿s demeanor, language, and garb confuses Nils. Further bewildering to Nils is to learn the year is 1817 and not 990. Apparently, as he had lied dying on this beach almost a millennium ago, Nils prayer to Freya had been answered. He asked for time to complete his blood vow before entering Valhalla, but by doing this he risks eternal damnation if he dies in this place and time. With he being the only one to see his blood enemy and Loki playing games, Nils chances of triumphing seem remote. Adding to his troubles, Linnea has fallen in love with him and to his amazement he reciprocates with the lass of Britannia. <P>MY LORD VIKING is a powerful time travel historical romance that shows the depth of talent of J.A. Ferguson. The story line is filled with action, fast-paced, and believability in the Nordic Gods. Linnea is an intrepid heroine and the displaced Nils struggles between adjustment, love, his eternal enemy, and his vow. The fabulous Fergy fervently fires fans with a winning tale that makes time travel feel romantically real. <P>Harriet Klausner
