Magnus awakens alone and badly injured. He has no memory of how he came to be injured nor of who he is. He knows he must flee if he is to stay alive. On the run, he stumbles on a Saxon maiden in danger and knows he must help her. Aisly hates the Danes who have invaded her homeland and killed her husband. She cannot resist the injured man who saved her and brings him home to nurse back to health. The two cannot help the desire that arises between them, but when Magnus’s true identity is revealed, Aisly is more than upset to learn she has been sleeping with her enemy. Harper St. George takes us back into the times of Vikings and Saxons. There was a lot of conflict during that time and Magnus and Aisly fell into that. Magnus knew he had to get away from the site of the battle if he was to survive. He still would not have made it if not for Aisly. She took him in and then found she wanted more from him. Aisly was in a different type of danger. Women during that time were not allowed to live on their own. Nevertheless, Aisly was determined to do just that. But the men in her life were just as determined to decide her future. When Magnus’s identity came out, Aisly felt betrayed and ran, but love is strong and can overcome many obstacles. The plot was incredibly well-done and more than one surprise was thrown in to keep us on our reading toes. In Bed with the Viking Warrior was a delight from beginning to end. Emotions rose and fell as did the warriors in this book. The ending is wonderful and is perfect for this book and for us. Don’t miss In Bed with the Viking Warrior or you will miss an incredible tale filled with action, adventure, love and surprise.

Magnus came to at the bottom of a pile of dead bodies. He doesn’t remember how he got there, nor who he is, he only knows that he has to escape as soon as possible, before the enemy sets fire to the gruesome mound. Magnus, dizzy because of a head wound and naked, flees the first chance he gets, but a man soon catches up to him and calls him Magnus. A fight ensues: it’s killed or be killed, but at least now Magnus has some clothes on his back and a sword to defend himself. Aisly is out rooting for plants she will use to dye the thread she uses for her embroidery, when she espies a Dane, the enemy! She tries to get away, and Magnus, although weak, saves her. Aisly notices that her saviour is injured and convinces him to follow her so she can heal him. Aisly still lives in the home she acquired when she married, but she might lose it any day now that she is a childless widow, and she apprehends the future. Her embroidery and weaving skills have allowed her to survive since her husband’s murder at the hands of the Danes in Heiraford, but how long will it last? Will her father-in-law throw her out? Will she have to go live in the abbey and become a nun? And what will happen to “her foreigner” with no memory of who he is? IN BED WITH THE VIKING WARRIOR is written in a calm and quiet tone, and I love that Harper St. George respects the passage of time as it was in the Middle Ages, even though there is always danger with the nearby presence of the enemy Danes. I think the unhurried pacing was perfect for the story, I felt I was experiencing the narrative in real time, I felt involved with the love story that was slowly blooming between Magnus and Aisly. I love a good amnesia trope, and IN BED WITH THE VIKING WARRIOR is excellent, because it’s entirely believable, and also because Magnus’ amnesia has repercussions on many levels; it’s not only that he doesn’t remember, or what he can’t recall, but what he doesn’t remember sets several things in motion. IN BED WITH THE VIKING WARRIOR is a study in subtlety, and yet it’s utterly engrossing because Magnus and Aisly are such engaging characters, Aisly is so brave and strong and they have real chemistry. Ms. St. George’s inclusion of little details of everyday life adds a feeling of authenticity and makes medieval England come to life. Magnus behaves honourably at all times, if at times it’s heartbreaking, and like Aisly, we speculate at to what the future holds for him, for her, for them. There is always that nagging doubt of who is Magnus, when and how will he remember? Or even will he? They trust each other in spite of Magnus’ unknown origins, their love is true, but still they try not to think about what might be. And then, several things that were simmering underneath happen all at once, not at all as I expected, and the exciting conclusion kept me on the edge of my seat until the fabulous ending! I voluntarily reviewed an advanced review copy of this book.
