A challenging wife
For a warrior Viking
When Thorstein Bergson rescues a beautiful woman from a storm-tossed longship he little expects to broker a powerful marriage alliance with her. This high-status ice queen is not the comfortable wife this warrior chief is seeking, but maybe the bittersweet pain in Gyda’s eyes hides another woman beneath? The one he tasted that first night, when she kissed him with such pent-up longing…
I received a copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review.
This Viking romance is atmospheric, full of historical detail and passion. Thorstein is a Viking warrior chief in Northumberland. A status achieved on merit. Gyda is a nobleman’s widow, but her outward manner hides an abusive past and low self-esteem. The chemistry between the two simmers into passion, but neither is willing to be vulnerable to the other.
Gyda and Thorstein undergo believable character development as they learn to trust each other. The setting is vividly described and captures the rawness of Viking living. The romance is conflicted and passionate, immersing the reader in the danger and desire of Gyda and Thorstein’s Viking life.
