Excellent read but what else can we expect from Willingham

I really enjoyed this story.  Styr’s struggle between his honor and his desire for Caragh is well written.  I can’t wait to read Ragnar and Elena’s story.

I enjoyed how this story began and how she managed to weave the story around a married man. The author managed to deal with the subject so that it was heartfelt, believable and the outcome gratifying. Caragh was a strong and yet tender woman set up against Styr, a strong warrior who has his own tender side. A perfect match. Right away you knew who they were and began to care about what happens to them. The story itself had enough action to keep the pages turned and blended nicely with the budding romance. The heat was a little slow in coming but was satisfying when we got there. Overall, I enjoyed this book. ***ARC provided by Netgalley in exchange for an honest review

I LOVED THE ADVENTURE THEY TOOK!! A great story of forbidden love of Caragh and her Viking Styr. Styr is married so means he is honor bound to protect and be faithful to his wife Elana, who has been taken captive by his own brother.  This story really moved me, and was a breath of fresh air in which i had been reading some stale books as of late. I could not Put this down and read in one sitting!!! Michelle Willingham does it again and i can say without a doubt i will read anything she writes!!!

TO SIN WITH A VIKING by Michelle Willingham is an exciting Medieval Viking Historical Romance set in Ireland-ad 875. Fast paced, steamy story of an Irish Lady,Lady Caragh Ó Brannon, and a Norseman, Styr Hardrata. Both playing with fire neither, wishing to get burned,but..... One,Styr, is in a loveless,childless marriage, the other,Lady Caragh, starving to death,literally and carving not only food but love. Styr brings his wife,and men to Ireland seeking a fresh start to his loveless marriage,he,his men and his wife is kidnapped. Styr by a starving Lady Caragh, and the others by her youngest brother. Than.....the trouble begins, for the others are again kidnapped and sold into slavery. Except Styr's wife and his first in command who jump overboard during the second kidnapping. Styr is determined to find his wife and friends. Lady Caragh is determined to make sure Styr does not follow through on this threat to kill her beloved brother. While passion sparks, Styr is an honorable man and refuses his impulses to have Lady Caragh in his bed. Well written with interesting characters who are engaging as well as determined. An intriguing plot as well. Ms. Willingham is a constant storyteller who holds your attention as well as grips at your heart. I cried,and cursed the unfairness of a loveless marriage and the determination Styr had to not commit adultery. Oh but when they do...watch the sparks fly....A great read! If you enjoy Medieval,Vikings,early Ireland, and a great romance,than "To Sin With a Viking" is the story for you to read,you will not regret it. Received for an honest review from the publisher and Net Galley. RATING: 4.5 HEAT RATING: STEAMY REVIEWED BY: AprilR, Review courtesy of My Book Addiction and More

A Great Start to this Duo: Originally Reviewed On Bewitching Bibliophile Sooo about that cover though?? Yeah no, I'm so terrified, and not at all turned on, but the rest of the story?? Yeah liking it, I've got the second book and I can't wait to dive in and finish this series. I found the idea of what happens when an arranged marriage doesn't work, and was totally on board to see how Michelle would work a way to give these two characters the love they needed. Would they come back together I was intrigued by the backstory of how Michelle came to write this and wanted to read as son as I got the book in my hand, I'm looking forward to reading Ragnar's story only because I love his name, Styr wanted to save his marriage because well everything was going wrong, and for such a crazy reason. I understood his wife Elena's struggle, she didn't want to fail her husband, and of course the families were also counting on her, but along the way she did what so many other women did wrong, she forgot that this is about her and her husband as well, not just about the future. And Styr didn't help by letting her know he wanted her for her, and not just because their marriage had been arranged. As the story progressed and we got to see both Styr and Caragh's life, and how they intersected, I was really intrigued on how he was going to walk the line without breaking it. There were some seriously close times not always because they wanted to but because circumstances conspired against them and even a few where Caragh's decision made it clear that Styr wasn't her only choice. I loved Caragh because once she realized Styr's heart wasn't hers to have she tried hard to maintain a distance. I found myself kinda hoping that things would work out for them and when we got to the crux of the problem, I totally loved the ending we were being given. I will say after watching Vikings on tv, I'm not sure they would have the same sense of 'honor' that Styr had, it wouldn't be considered dishonoring your wife. Personally I think having emotional attachments are worse than physical cheating, one you never have to do again, but the other?? Your emotions are involved, I'm going to lose no matter what. I loved the story we were given, it was sweet, haunting at times and still a story that kept me intrigued and turning the pages. ★★★1/2☆☆ Happy Reading

3.5 Stars I was getting aggravated because over the first half of the book Styr and Caragh just lusted after each other, but he was being faithful to his wife. The last half was Excellent and very exciting and unpredictable!!!!! Highly Recommend!!!

Adequate cut and dry romance with an underdeveloped plot device that could've been expanded to create more intrigue and drama and add dimension to the characters. Tepid.

This was a good book, I couldn't put it down - the character challenges are different than the typical romance novel, you could feel their personal struggles. I love a story that moves me emotionally, and this book had me in tears and then wanting to throw it across the room. I cried for their heartache and the personal struggles they were dealing with, the hopelessness of their situation. There were a few bumps in the book where I would have to go back and figure out how they got to that spot, almost as if I blinked and missed soemthing. I really wished the ending would have evolved more from that point into the future, but maybe that's for a future novel around the other characters in the book. I would recommend this one to my friends who love to immerse themselves into a good story.

To Sin with a Viking A great story of forbidden attraction of Irish maiden Caragh and her Viking captive Styr.    Styr is married and honor bound to protect and remain faithful to his wife Elana, who has been taken captive by Caragh’s brother.   I loved the story of the  forbidden attraction and the adventure they take.  Highly recommend everyone to read and tag along on the adventure.  Great job Michelle Willingham Harlequin is going to put the e-book version of this title on sale for $1.99, starting July 16th  for a limited  time

Very few romances seem to break the mold of the standard “hero meets heroine and they reluctantly fall in love.” But this one does in an unexpected way. Viking warrior Styr Hardrata arrives on the shores of Ireland along with his wife, Elena, but is ambushed. Taken captive and separated from his wife, he’s forced to depend on Caragh, the Irish woman who’d captured him. Intrigued by Caragh’s kindness and determination, he grows to care for her, and when given the opportunity to leave her to starve on the barren Irish island, he chooses to aid her instead. Together Styr and Caragh work together to rescue Elena as they confront their intense passion for each other. To Sin With a Viking was the first Viking story I’ve read in a number of years, and it didn’t disappoint. After I began reading, I found that Ms. Willingham’s writing even exceeded my expectations with a hero and heroine I grew to care about. I loved the depth of the Styr’s character, watching how he struggled to rescue his wife and fought his attraction to Caragh. I never felt awkward for his emotions, because this story was about so much more than lust. Styr tried very hard to save his marriage. His relationship problems with his spouse were poignant and just as meaningful then as they would be for a modern couple today. I liked the author’s well-executed exploration of this conflict, and I expect we’ll be seeing more stories like this in the future.
