    3 1/2 starsThis is a tough one to review. I liked the basic storyline, and I liked Styles' writing. I just wish she had had a larger word count to expand upon the relationship between Annis and Haakon. Annis is a Northumbrian widow whose stepfather is pressing her into another unwanted...

    This one started out strong but lost it's steam quickly after that. Once Annis is taken back to Haakon's land everything just gets boring.Annis (h) is a widow who is about to be married off by her stepfather to his son. While she wants no part of this, she's staying with her uncle and ...

    Wendy, Lady Evelyn Quince

    MINI-REVIEW:Action packed viking romance which (yet again!!)is similar to Johanna Lindsey's "Fires of Winter" but without the bodice ripper charm.Solid kidnapping plot, but the heroine went from being wishy-washy to kickass and back again too many times. And as for the Viking, yes he t...

    haaah... after four months and a reread of A Darker Dream by Amanda Ashley, the whole Harry Potter series, and more research books, I finally finished this measly 250ish page book. How sad...Clearly, it wasn't that great. ...

    This story takes you back to a time that Vikings ruled the seas, traded their goods or simply raided the lands of others. A time where people were in fear for their lives by the mere thought of a Viking ship. You get to meet Haakon Haroldson, a dark, arrogant, Viking warrior, who trade...

    Before Annis was abducted the the Vikings, she seemed to be a strong, go-getter, who knew what she wanted and went after it. Once she was taken, she became a mouse. She was a prized captive and relatively well-treated but she just wilted. I found Haakon to be wishy-washy and definitely...

    More like 3 and 1/2 stars..A sweet viking romance that I think could have done better... had a LOT of potential to a 5-star, but something held it back and I'm really not sure what it was.. I mean, loved how the general story line went. At certain parts I thought to myself that it coul...

    This book had potential, but soon fell flat. What initially perturbed me is the fact that it was a love-at-first-sight story, which I don't necessarily have a problem with. However, the circumstances were outrageous & highly unlikely. What girl is going to fall in love 10 MINUTES a...
