Overview

She said . . .

Caedmon of Larkspur is the most loathsome lout I have ever encountered! When my sisters and I arrived at his castle, we were greeted by servants and children running wild, while Caedmon lied abed after a night of ale. No doubt there will be another child soon, because I must admit he's as handsome as he is virile. And I must endure him, for we are in desperate need of protection, though I can only imagine what this knight will demand of me in return . . .

He said . . .

After nine long months in the king's service, all I wanted was peace . . . not five Viking princesses running my keep. And the fiery redhead who burst into my chamber that first morning is the worst of all. Why, I should kick her out . . . but I have a much more wickedly delightful plan for Breanne of Stoneheim, one that will leave her a Viking in lust.

“...wildly inventive and laugh-out-loud fabulous. Once again the talented Sandra Hill proves that a real hero isn’t stopped by any obstacle — not even time. Viking Navy SEALs? Time travel will never be the same!”
Publishers Weekly
Tenth-century England is beginning to feel a little old in Hill's latest Viking adventure, her first for Avon. This is a straight historical romance, not the time-travel scenario familiar from The Very Virile Viking and others in the Time of Your Life series, and without the inherent absurdity of eras colliding, the humorous anachronisms come across as forced and creaky. Breanne and her four sisters, Viking princesses all, have killed one sister's abusive husband, who inconveniently had strong ties to the misogynistic King Edgar. Their very distant cousin-by-marriage, Caedmon, has a stout castle well away from the scene of the crime, but he'll only allow them to stay if Breanne promises him 10 nights in her company—no holds barred. It's a familiar formula of war between the sexes and desire ruling all, and only Hill's fans are likely to enjoy the ride. (Feb.)
Library Journal
Fresh from killing their sister Vana's abusive husband and dumping his body down the garderobe, Norse Princess Breanne of Stoneheim and her four sisters seek safety with distant relative Caedmon of Larkspur in his Northumbrian castle. But Caedmon, newly returned from a nine-month battle, has found his cook gone, a bevy of children running wild, his servants slacking off, and his castle in filthy disarray—the perfect moment for Breanne and company to descend like avenging Valkyries, determined to whip everything, including him, into shape. VERDICT Earthy, laugh-out-loud hilarious, and lusty, this tenth-century revel takes readers back to a much-less-refined time and is just plain fun. Hill's (Viking Heat) Viking series are legendary; her fans are sure to enjoy this latest addition.

    Challenging Romance

    This story is very romantic but challenging when you see conditions in England in the mid 900's. This is a must read for anyone concerned about fair treatment of women. At that era neither rich or poor were treated
    very fair by the crown or the church.
    The hero is a landowner,Caedmon,who returns to his castle after many
    fighting for his king to find his home a big mess. Everything is filthy
    and run down especially his 10 motherless children. He also receives 5 uninvited guests. These women make themselves at home and shake up his life.
    Since he has been married twice before he is not looking for a wife and does all in his power to avoid that. It is so funny to see all the challenges he goes through before admitting love.

    Another great story

    I found this book to follow the great writing style of Sandra Hill. I love all the books. You do not have to read the in order but I would recommend it.

    The only down side I found is that they do not list the order of the books.

    Adorably Funny

    You'll enjoy this new installment of Sandra Hill's. I couldn't stop laughing. You'll enjoy Caedmon and Breanne's antics as well as their story. You'll love that she's a very strong person but sympathetic as well who needs his protection. Don't miss this book.

    same old same old

    I love Sandra Hill, but this is nothing new. At least the print was medium size. Her last two books had the smallest print. It hurts my eyes!

    this historical is an amusing gender war

    In 965 Northumbria the five Viking princess daughters of King Thorvald of Stoneheim in the Norselands kill the abusing spousal, Oswald the Earl; make that former Earl, of one of them, Vana. The dead miscreant had ties to the odious King Edgar so the fearsome femmes need instant protection. . They travel to a cousin-by-marriage, Caedmon, who resides inside Larkspar, a strongly fortified castle.

    Caedmon does need five female bosses having spent nine months with one bossy monarch. He wants them out, but agrees to house and protect them in return for the most hostile of the quintet Breanne warming his body for ten consecutive nights in which he proclaims everything goes and she agrees

    Although quite straightforward proving the shortest distance between two points is a historical novel containing no time displaced Vikings or Americans, this historical is an amusing gender war of what looks like the first of five Tenth century romances. The bickering starts even before Caedmon enters the plot as the fearsome fivesome argue over who did what to Oswald the brute and that argumentativeness never takes a respite even when the hero steals a kiss. Although the sisters especially Breanne seems more modern day than from two millennia ago, fans will enjoy this jocular jaunt with its key question being what is the Viking S-Trick?
