Only, Astrid has the heart of a warrior, and she will not be tamed as easily as he believes….
Expectations: Honestly I wasn’t expecting too much from this novel. Only because I had never stepped outside of Paranormal romance and I was intrigued by the Viking theme in it. I enjoy reading about Viking’s. This book did not disappoint.
Reaction: This book took me by surprise. I really enjoyed it. I loved the characters and the plot.
Leif was a really deep character with things in his past he couldn’t let go of. I was brought to the end of the book on the edge of my seat waiting to see how the relationship with him and Astrid would end. Their relationship changed throughout the story. It was sweet for the most part with some hot and steamy scenes thrown in. I think Astrid was really likable, not just the shy woman falling for the man like in most over romance novels.. She fought for herself when necessary. The pace moved quickly throughout the book. There weren’t really any slow parts for me. I read this book in a day which hasn’t happened for me in years.
The cover is alright. Not bad but not great.
I feel like Leif looks a bit too submissive in this cover.
Loved the vikings, loved the characters, loved the plot.
Wish there was more to the book! I didn’t want it to end.
