THE SHIPWRECK - THE LEGEND OF RIVENLOCH IS BORN
The origin novella for the Warrior Maids of Rivenloch by Glynnis Campbell

When his wife and children die, Viking marauder Brandr has nothing left to live for, so he sails away on one final voyage. A storm at sea leaves him shipwrecked, alone, and barely alive on a foreign coastline. Along the Pictish shore, Avril, a warrior maid and the victim of a Viking berserker, banished from her ancestral home of Rivenloch to a seaside cottage, dreams of the day she’ll raise her sword, take back the castle that is rightfully hers, and find her half-Viking daughter a proper father. Discovering a broad-shouldered, fair-haired, broken castaway washed up on her beach among the wreckage of his longship, she takes him captive and binds him in chains. She refuses to be a Viking’s victim again...never imagining that soon her fiercest enemy will earn her trust, invade her heart, and enthrall her senses.

    Fantastic

    This was the best story of the viking and the first warrior maid of Riverloch ! I loved it so much I didn't want it to end. I have already read the trilogy of the Riverloch warrior maidens but this was so interesting to read about their great great..........grandparents story. It makes me want to read the trilogy again. They were excellent too.

    SO MUCH GOING ON I CAN'T BELIEVE IT IS A NOVELLA!! Like others

    SO MUCH GOING ON I CAN'T BELIEVE IT IS A NOVELLA!! Like others, I hated to see this story end, but it really won't because this was a prequel to the Warrior Maids of Riverloch. I read this one first, and have ordered the other 3 in the series. I have read or will read 10 novels by Gynnis and love her style of writing. So much feeling put into a novella, it was like being in the little cabin watching everything unfold, you felt all the emotions of our H/h. Plus little Kimbrey was such a joy, I laughed out loud at the things she said or how she repeated a story. I won't go into the storyline, because others have described it, just know this is a must read especially if you plan to read the rest of the 3 books. There is passionate lovemaking, that I didn't find vulgar or offensive, just the right amount of description. (ljb)

     LOVED! LOVED! LOVED! THE SHIPWRECK BY GLYNNIS CAMPBELL! HOW IT

     LOVED! LOVED! LOVED! THE SHIPWRECK BY GLYNNIS CAMPBELL! HOW IT ALL BEGAN THE LEGEND OF THE WARRIOR MAIDS OF RIVENLOCH, November 6, 2013

    This review is from: The Shipwreck (The Warrior Maids of Rivenloch Novella) (Kindle Edition)
    I have been reading books from this author for many years and have enjoyed every single book she has written whether it was under one of her pen names Sarah McKerrigan, Kira Morgan or her real name Glynnis Campbell. I have read every single book she has put out and to my utmost pleasure this lovely novella " The Shipwreck" was no different as it had me captivated from the very first sentence of the book to the very last word in the book
    The story is prequel from Ms. Campbell's previous series The Warrior Maid's of Rivenloch as originally the print books were under her pen name of Sarah McKerrigan which name are under her given name Glynnis Campbell which are available in digital ebook:
    Book 1. Lady Danger
    Book 2. Captive Heart
    Book 3! Knights Prize
    I definitely recommend you to read this series after you finish The Shipwreck as each book is truly beautifully written but you can read them alone as well. I personally think it is more fun to read them in the book order, but of course the choice is yours.




    This amazing book is about Avril a pict warrior maid of Rivenloch, but her evil brothers send her into exile due to jealousy her being the rightful heir of her ancestral home and fear they will kill her infant daughter and other reasons I won't disclose not wanting to spoil this beautiful story for any of the readers. Avril has gone through many hardships since the death of her father as she was also raped by a viking berserker five years ago where she is raising her half Viking daughter Kimberly who she adores and are living in a small cottage on the seacoast by meager means but she is a survivor. Yet as unlikely that is to to happen Avril dreams of getting a husband and storming Rivenloch and retrieving her birth-rite back and exiling or killing her evil brothers.




    The hero in this story is Brandr a Viking marauder on his final voyage as he had lost his wife and children and village to illness. Brandr and his men looking to settle on new land, but he and his men get caught in a terrible storm and Brandr is swept up on Avril"s beach. Due to Avril's past hurts,fear and hatred she knocks him out chains Brandr up in her cottage and makes him a prisoner. Although she treats all his wounds and feeds him as well. I must say her daughter Kimmy is a definite scene stealer in this book! Kimmy seems to read that Brandr is no threat and had decided to make him her Da and adopt him in a way. I laughed so much, the little girl is such a little precocious rascal I really adored her character in this story. The way she stretches the truth and as much as Avril insists he is not her Da she still calls him her Da although sometimes just a whisper if her Ma is getting too annoyed. Well after all they both have the same coloring oh I really adored so many of Kimmys lines in this book I found so humorous! Of course after Avril opens her heart and puts her prejudice aside and sees Brandr's true character and that not all vikings are alike and just maybe one Viking might make all her dreams come true.




    I really loved this beautiful story and as a fan of the Rivenloch Warrior Maiden series I found it so interesting of how the legend of the Warrior Maids of Rivenloch began. I recommend this book to all as "The Shipwreck" totally rocked. I totally loved it!!!

    A Must Read - Wonderful Historical Romance with Humor

    Glynnis Campbell paints a an incredible picture with details that start with the Acknowledgements and goes to the last page. If you like quick reads with humor and tenderness, I recommend it to you. Avril and her daughter Kimbery "capture" a shipwrecked Viking with amazing ingenuity. The story engages the reader quickly and never let's go. I read an embarrassing amount of historical romances and this is one of my favorite!
