Selia Haardrad, the gorgeous half Celtic half Viking, branded a spy and locked in Lady Erika's dungeon to await his fate. The whole story is based around Selig's thirst for revenge once he is released from the dungeon, taking Erika as a captive. He hates her, she hates him, but they slowly start to fall in love with each, much to their own disgust. You know how this is going to end, but even so it doesn't detract from the quick pace of the story and good characterisation throughout. Although to be honest, Selig does seem just too good to be true.....However, I really loved this book, as much as Fires of Winter and Hearts Aflame, the other Haardrad family books. As ever with Johanna Lindsey books the feel good factor is high and for a day or so takes you out of reality and places you firmly into fantasy. A lovely book to escape with.
