Editorial Reviews

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.
Booklist (starred review)
“With her clever dialogue, often bawdy situations, and great cast of characters, including a warrior woman, a proverb-spouting wise man/healer from the East, and a saucy cook, Hill has created another wickedly wonderful story.”
