This book played out a like a film in my head. I now need to spend a few days adjusting to real life.
Forced to wed the warrior
Falling for the man…
Noblewoman Amée Évreaux had pledged her life to God, until her father promised her in marriage to thundering Norseman, Jorund Jötunnson. After escaping her overbearing father, Amée vows never to fall under another man’s thumb, but her resistance to being Jorund’s wife turns to desire as she gets to know her intriguing new husband. For beneath his fierce exterior she’s glimpsed an unexpectedly pure heart. If only she can penetrate the fortress that surrounds it…
Here’s my review;
This book has such a dramatic opening chapter. It left me bathed in a light sweat and murmuring, ‘good gracious, Lucy Morris, what are you doing to me?’
I really enjoyed this story. It is about Jorund, the giant Viking warrior, who comes to the nunnery to claim Amée Évreaux as his bride. Amée wants to dedicate her life to God however her father has other ideas and has promised her hand to Jorund. Over the course of the book these two characters come to understand each other and fall in love. It is a good read.
There were so many standouts, the wonderful characters of fierce Amée and Jorund, the Viking warrior with the big heart, the vivid historical descriptions, the twisty plot and the sizzling romance. It has everything you need in a good romance – passion, drama, adventure, a fierce but vulnerable female character and a hunky Viking warrior male character who, I guarantee, will be the source of many fictional crushes.
Lucy Morris – good read!
