Overview

To Viking warrior Magnus, marriage is naught but a contract, a bargain between men for land and title. Lust, love--he scorns such notions as weak and unmanly. But three days before he's to wed a highland princess, he falls into the maelstrom of a maid's startled eyes. Their passionate tryst has him rethinking his notions, and he struggles to find a way to keep the beguiling Deidra while honoring the marriage contract he's arranged with the father of his betrothed.

Deidra cannot take a walk in the forest without finding a wounded dove. Devoted to her menagerie of injured bears, peacocks, and wolves, she vows to disobey her Da when he betroths her to the Norse warrior known as the Destroyer. Until, disguised as a maid, she's rescued from a would-be attacker by the Destroyer himself. How can any call him ugly or cruel? For he treats her as if she is made of spun glass, and teaches her the magikal pleasures of the flesh.

But Magnus is furious when he learns the woman he's fallen so deeply for is none other than his betrothed. For there's nothing he despises more than a deceitful female...except, perhaps, two of them...

Loved this book - it was so funny in parts and so poignant in others.

I read The Destroyer today. Thanks you Jianne Carlo for Magnus & Deidra's love story. You had me drooling for Magnus. I enjoyed how Deidra was all hot and horny for Magnus pretty much the first time she set eyes on him. I can't wait for book 5. Will it be Jarvk's love story? I hope we also get the love stories for all of Deidra's big sexy brothers. I would love to get to know all those sexy highlanders. Thanks you so much for this Viking series. Good viking books are hard to find nowadays.

This was my first Jianne Carlo book. I loved the entire story. Especially all the wild pets Diedre had, from a bear to two snakes. Magnus and Diedre's story was comical, mystery and love story. The characters were fun and I hated for the book to end.

The store was Ok-ay, not something I would run out and have to read over and over. I felt as if it was short and sweet not plot, jut met a girl, liked her, she is weird and did her. THE END.
