Overview

The Viking Is a Princess . . .

All Ingrith wants is refuge for herself and a group of orphans from a vicious Saxon commander who would harm the children and destroy her honor. At her age, she no longer expects to find a husband, or even a lover, especially not the arrogant Lord of the Bees!

John of Hawk's Lair longs for peace and quiet, not a nagging wife and noisy children. As a knight in the king's service, he spends his cherished time at home working on his beekeeping experiments. So when an irksome Viking princess comes barging into his castle with a horde of orphans, he does everything he can to get rid of her. But then a sexual attraction sparks between them, despite their differences, one that soon has them making honey, rather than war . . .

    more from this reviewer

    This is a fun lighthearted Dark Ages romp

    In 970 Northumbria Princess Ingrith Sigrundottir proudly runs a local orphanage Rainstead. However, when brutal Saxon Commander Leo Loncaster visits her orphanage demanding she turn over King Edgar's illegitimate son Henry she disobeys the beast. Instead she flees with her children including Henry to Lord John Graves's home Hawk's Lair where she demands sanctuary for her, Ubbi her elderly guard, and thirty youngsters.

    John is attracted to Ingrith, but knows she is off limits to him as the daughter of the king. Ingrith is attracted to her host but cannot get him away from his studies of honey. When Loncaster angrily burns down the orphanage, John sets off to get the king to intercede while directing the princess to remain safe inside his walls. Ingrith rejects his orders and instead follows him to her father's court. In love, they argue before he leaves the court to return to his honeybees while Thorvold announces his daughter will marry soon. John decides he will be her husband, but must persuade his beloved he is her man for eternity.

    This is a fun lighthearted Dark Ages romp in which Sandra Hill uses humor to make the case that the tenth century was an enlightened period with researchers along side berserkers as warriors. The story line is fast-paced while Ms. Hill provides fascinating ways to use honey that the experimenters amongst readers will want to test with their significant other. The lead couple is a terrific pairing as each is fully developed so the audience will understand the motives and flaws of both as the almost aptly titled The Viking Takes a Knight as her honey.

    I Also Recommend:

    highly recommended - entertaining

    This is a very enjoyable book. Funny, romantic, trilling, hot, and sexy. John is a Saxon lord who is afraid to sire children because of his insane father. Ingrith is a 31 year old Viking princess who has no interest in marriage. Ingrith tries to protect a 5 year old boy and ends up at Hawk's Lair (John's home). John offers her temporary shelter not knowing the real reason Ingrith is there - hiding from a very powerful Saxon commander who is very close to the King. The two get attracted to each other. Because of their age (and no plans for marriage), they end up doing scandalous stuff as "experiments" and end up falling in love with each other. John is afraid he will pass on his father's insanity to his children so he refuses to commit to the woman he loves. Ingrith loves him so much that she refuses to let him suffer watching his children go insane.... Read the book! You won't regret it. :) A real love story.
