Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Fleeing a tyrant, young Torolf Magnusson and his family accidentally time-travel from the 11th-century Norselands to modern-day America. They adapt so well that, years later, he's become a navy SEAL determined to return to his home time and right old wrongs. A group of special forces buddies, viewing the adventure as a lark, insist on going with him and land in the midst of a Viking women's sanctuary whose residents, though they despise men, are eager for children. Hilarious cultural misunderstandings and outlandish sex scenes follow, along with a budding romance between Torolf and the sanctuary leader, strong-minded Hilda Berdottir. Though Hill's plot requires some major suspension of disbelief, her attention to the details of SEAL operations and Viking life provide a welcome measure of credibility as the men and their new allies work to dispatch the villain. A clich d evil scientist plot weakens the latter half of the book, but Hilda's comical adventures in present-day California and a highly satisfying end more than compensate. Hill's fertile imagination and ribald erotic touches, previously employed in more than a dozen historical and paranormal romances (including The Very Virile Viking), should further expand the popularity of this bestselling author. (Dec.) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

    Funny!

    This was an interesting time-travel romance. Five Navy SEALS travel to the 11th century! They end up back in the present day, but with a 'guest.' I enjoyed this quirky read!

    Typical

    I did not like the style of writing and it appears to be the typical romance novel. I did not read the whole book so I could be way off base. If I am I apologize.

    Didn't care for this one

    This is a continuation of the Magnusson family series. The Magnusson's have time traveled to the 21st century from the 1100's. I mostly enjoyed the other books. A. This is getting old. Stay in one century already. B. The terms that are used both by the SEALS when trying to talk to the 12th century women and by the women when talking to the SEAL's. EX: Torolf to Tilda is talking about 'sexual attraction' and she understands what he means. Another:' You invite me for a night of swiving.' There were some definitions in the very back of the book but who wants to keep stopping to look them up? C. Hilda was a screechy, obnoxious person in both centuries much like Madrene in 'Hot and Heavy'. I was sick to death of her constant insults to Zorolf: 'loathsome lout' (this one we heard so often I was ready to scream), 'lackwit', 'filthy, untrustworthy, uncaring maggot of a man.' She was always telling Zorolf that there would be no more 'tupping' then the next thing you know they were having sex. D. How attractive could these women be? They didn't bathe regularly, their clothes weren't particularly clean, they worked with sheep and I'm assuming they didn't shave their legs or their armpits. It's hard to believe not just one, but five 21st century men would want to be in very close quarters with them. It looks like the next book will be more of the same so I'll pass.

    An amusing Viking time travel romance

    His brilliant sister UCLA professor Kirstin, an expert on ancient studies especially Vikings, asks Navy SEAL Lieutenant Torolf Magnusson what he would change if he could go back in time to an event lost in the annals of history a little documented event say in 1020 like Steinolf claiming to be king of the Norselands after a ten year reign of terror. Torolf is happy in America, but would want to stop the madness of Steinolf.---------------- Torolf and his SEAL teammates ride a Viking long ship in Norway when they are transported back to the early eleventh century. There he seeks the help of his childhood friend, Brunhilda ¿Hilda¿ Berdottir, a ¿Dark Ages feminist¿. He and his men find her and other strong women living in Sanctuary. As his men think it is a big ruse, Torolf begins his quest to end Steinolf¿s tyranny even as he and Hilda fall in love. If he succeeds on his mission, Torolf wonders about the future with Hilda, here, the twenty-first century, or will they be the ultimate star-crossed lovers.------------------- The latest amusing Viking time travel romance sends Torolf to the past with his squad in which misunderstanding becomes the norm and the lack of coffee makes the men suffer caffeine withdrawal. The plot takes many more twists than the previous tales, which doubles the humorous fun as further time induced confusion occur. ROUGH AND READY is a jocular tale that Ms Hill¿s fans will laugh about with the antics of displaced people while going over the hill and back.------------------- Harriet Klausner
