    Great Action With an Admirable Hero But Annoying Heroine

    Right from the very start Ms. Crosby immerses readers into an action-packed story that involves discussions of religion, hints of the paranormal, and above all a steamy romance that evolves slowly. Bits of real-life history are also successfully woven into the storyline with King Olav interacting with his half-brothers in a melodramatic way as past hurts make for a less than happy family at times (mostly between Olav and Bjorn). To make even more drama is Alarik's spontaneous capturing of Elienor and bringing her to his home as he's drawn to her the moment he sees her. Resentment and confusion fuels their relationship, as does sexual tension, as she's equally drawn to him but desperately wants to go home. He's frustrated too by his feelings for her and the weakness he grew up believing it represents. Thus the rocky road to a HEA commenced in a journey of rebellion, a questioning of faith, and forgiveness (with LOTS of steamy interludes along the way).

    The main protagonists wage a war of words and emotions from the start of their harrowing ocean voyage home which very slowly morphs into affection. During these early interactions I found myself disliking Elienor immensely. She tended to jump to conclusions, screamed and acted like a shrew, and was ungrateful for all the kindness he showed her. It's understandable that being taken from home would be upsetting but her reactions were over-the-top as he showed a lot of kindness to her and went against his own men to protect her. Even when they reached his home she still cowered from him and fought their attraction even though she was the one initiating some of their interludes. It wasn't until late in the story that I finally warmed up to her as she sacrificed her life to save him from treachery. Alarik was appealing from the very start. He's a true warrior not afraid to take what he wants but showed true kindness to Elienor in many subtle ways. From solely caring for her when she's injured to giving her a puppy and the finest clothes he showed her how much she means to him. He's extremely sexy too and in their quiet moments together he showed a very tender and loving nature. He's always been the one who's had to take control and never allowed himself happiness, but with Elienor his playful and boyish side came out, so for that I'm grateful for her presence.

    Amidst this hard-fought HEA comes a battle based on greed and revenge which leads to treachery from those close to home. It's a battle that brings forth feelings long kept hidden between brothers and neighbors and made me ache for Alarik as he lost much with these betrayals. It also showed Alarik as a very forgiving man towards those who hurt him and made me like him even more than I did before. I enjoyed this book's blend of action and romance and Ms. Crosby's vivid depiction of Viking life with all its harshness. While I found the heroine lacking, the hero more than made up for that and I still find myself dreaming of him. There's a large cast of secondary characters who each play a big part in the overall storyline and they were nicely integrated into the story to give them complete endings too. Overall this is another winner from Ms. Crosby and I look forward to what she has planned next.

    I received this book from the touring host for an honest review.

    I received this book from the touring host for an honest review. 




    Very well written Historical, and oh so sizzling Romance story. It started of very quickly with an immediate battle at hand, when Alerik a Viking Lard and his men attacked The Count Philippe who under false pretenses aided him before, and half of Alerik’s men were killed, so this was definitely a revenge war on the Count. In this battle, the only one that was left is Elienor who was suppose to betrothed the Count. She was taken captive, and they went back to Alerik’s Norse country, the whole story developed further as they spend time on the open seas. We spend time with Elienor as she struggles to make sense of what is happening to her and her treacherous body. She had an inner struggle because she was a believer and the Vikings served other gods. The story line was very good it is a fast pace. An enjoyable book to read as you start it draws you in keeping your attention as things develop. Never really sure what the outcome will be for Elienor and Alerik until the last few chapters.
    Well done Tanya, as always I was not disappointed.
