It takes nothing short of a miracle to catapult Lt. Torolf Magnusson and his team of Navy SEALs back in time to the eleventh-century Norselands. First on the agenda: destroy the evil villain who terrorized his family and a nation.
But when the sexy SEALs find they’ve landed in the middle of a sanctuary—filled with women—well, hoo-yah! Their plans are put on hold, much to the distress of Hilda, the head of the sanctuary. At first resistant to Torolf’s pursuits, she soon succumbs to his passionate advances. Suddenly the term “Special Forces” takes on a whole new meaning. But with victory in sight for Torolf, Hilda must face the fact that their love may not survive the test of time...

Publishers Weekly

Fleeing a tyrant, young Torolf Magnusson and his family accidentally time-travel from the 11th-century Norselands to modern-day America. They adapt so well that, years later, he's become a navy SEAL determined to return to his home time and right old wrongs. A group of special forces buddies, viewing the adventure as a lark, insist on going with him and land in the midst of a Viking women's sanctuary whose residents, though they despise men, are eager for children. Hilarious cultural misunderstandings and outlandish sex scenes follow, along with a budding romance between Torolf and the sanctuary leader, strong-minded Hilda Berdottir. Though Hill's plot requires some major suspension of disbelief, her attention to the details of SEAL operations and Viking life provide a welcome measure of credibility as the men and their new allies work to dispatch the villain. A clich d evil scientist plot weakens the latter half of the book, but Hilda's comical adventures in present-day California and a highly satisfying end more than compensate. Hill's fertile imagination and ribald erotic touches, previously employed in more than a dozen historical and paranormal romances (including The Very Virile Viking), should further expand the popularity of this bestselling author.
