Product Description

Mad about you

His boat off course, distracted by a randy she-whale whose infatuation had somehow thrust him into the twenty-first century, Jorund Ericsson thought he’d found heaven when he caught sight of the comely wench with the man-hair and the kiss-some lips. The lovely doctor, however, simply thought Jorund insane—even as she drove the befuddled Viking crazy with her enticing figure.

He leapt from the water and into Maggie’s life, all sinewy muscles in a flawlessly proportioned body, a swath of long blond hair swept back from his brow. His claim to be a Viking from the tenth century made her smile. But it wasn’t laughter that caused her stomach to flutter when the Hercules look-alike claimed her lips. And soon he had her believing his story and questioning her own sanity—though the psychologist realized there was another possibility. They were, neither of them, truly mad . . . simply truly, madly in love.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow, Sandra justs gets better and better 1 Sep 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I don't know how she does it but, Sandra's books get better and better. In this one we meet Jorund (Rolf's brother from THE LAST VIKING) who travels on a quest for his father from the 10th to the 21st century on the back of a killer whale called Thora. He lands at the feet of Doch-whore Mag-he Muck-bride(Dr. Maggie McBride) a psycologist totally naked except for a sword. He ends up in a mental health institution for observation.
Maggie doesn't believe him when he tells her he has travelled 1000 years to the future. She thinks he is mentally unstable. She does finally believe him in the end though.
Joe(Jorund) finally suceeds in his quest for his father. He then decides to go back home to his time if he can find his way back.
Like all of Sandra's book's this one is totally hillarious and the sex and passion is red hot. There is a letter from Sandra at the end of the book which tells us of further books in the Viking series and a possible sequel to FRANKLEY, MY DEAR and SWEETER SAVAGE LOVE. Please Sandra write quickly, I can't wait.

Rolf's brother is sent forward in time in a very bizarre way - you have to read the book otherwise it just sounds silly - if you have a slightly warped sense of humour this will appeal to you. Of course, he meets a woman that he considers strange and ends up in a mental institution. Let your imagination work from there on!
Great book a must-read if you like sequels!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another cracking book 23 Jan 2010
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I read this, again, in one day, the day after reading The Last Viking!! As with the first book this one made me laugh out loud and cry quietly as I followed Joe and Mag-he's love story. We are reunited with Rolf and Merry-death and learn a little about what has happened in their lives. As with Rolf, Jorund is larger than life and just as arrogant as his brother. His misunderstanding of words and the ways of the 21st century life are hilarious and touching and I got immersed in their story quickly. I admit to being a new and now, soundly ardent fan of Ms Hill's work - light hearted, touching, fun and passionate. Read these if you want to escape for a few hours and enter that world where men are men and women are grateful!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Very sexy & also very funny 26 Mar 2007
By Livvy
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Not many books can make me laugh out loud, but this one did (especially

when a patient did an impersonation of a snake!!). As well as being sexy and funny, the story was also quite touching which I think is something that only Sandra Hill could achieve.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous 27 July 2000
By Tina Engler Keen - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Jorund Ericsson comes back from war in the year 998, only to find his wife and twin daughters dead from a famine that has hit the Norse lands. Compounding the grief that the loss of his children brings to him is the fact that his younger brother Geirolf (The Last Viking) is missing at sea, possibly dead. Promising his father that he will find him, hopefully still alive, he and his other younger brother Magnus set sail for the area off Iceland in which Geirolf was last spotted. When the anchor on his longship becomes entangled in weeds, Jorund divests himself of his clothing and jumps overboard to remedy the situation. A few minutes later, he finds himself on the back of a killer whale, future-bound...
Dr. Maggie McBride is a psychologist that works at the Rainbow Psychiatric Hospital in Gavelston, Texas. Taking her twin daughters for a trip to Orcaland, she's surprised to discover that more than just the whales splash around naked at the marine park. When a huge, naked man wearing nothing but his swordbelt comes cruising into the park on the back of a killer whale, Maggie takes it upon herself to have him sent to the Rainbow Hospital for evaluation, rather than to jail for endangering the mammals.
Maggie and Jorund feel connected in some strange, unexplicable way from the moment their eyes first meet. Both of them have their reasons for denying the feelings they have for each other, which grow stronger every day. Maggie tells herself she can't care for Jorund because he's a patient in her mental health facility who fancies himself a tenth century Viking, whereas Jorund tries to pretend he feels nothing for Maggie because it complicates his feelings in regard to returning to the past. Both of them, however, eventually come to terms with the truth: they are afraid to make themselves vulnerable by experiencing love for another person...
Truly, Madly Viking is Sandra Hill at her wittiest, funniest, hilarious best. From her descriptions of the modern world through Jorund's eyes, to the patients of the Rainbow Hospital we come to love, to Jorund's various escapades, you'll have a hard time trying to keep a straight face while reading this book. Entangled into the hilarious scenes Hill laces throughout the whole read, is a warm your heart, make you smile love story between a man and a woman who desperately need their other half, and a man and two little girls who need the kind of magic only a parent-child relationship can bring.
As is the norm for most Sandra Hill novels, the secondary characters, specifically the patients of the Rainbow Hospital, are irresistably endearing. From Nurse Hatcher, who Jorund thinks would make a fine warrior, to Rosalyn, the nymphomaniac librarian, to Steve, the impotent Vietnam veteran (whose own story brings tears to your eyes), the well-scripted cast of Truly, Madly Viking will knock your socks off.
Even the method by which Jorund comes to the present, though penned in Hill's signature wacky comedic light, is unexpectedly refreshing. Riding naked on the back of a killer whale into the future, as ludicrous as it sounds upon first hearing it, actually calls for less of a jump in logic than most time travels, which typically use fairie rings and enchanted necklaces. (At least the whale scenario conforms to scientific theories which purport that if time travel were ever to take place, it would have to happen in water.)
I just loved the book. It's no doubt one of the funniest novels you'll read all year.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sandra Hill has a gift for writing keepers! 25 Aug 2000

Truly, Madly Viking By Sandra Hill Published by Dorchester Published July, 2000
What do you get when you combine a mind-reading whale, a perfectly sane Viking warrior, a trip through time, and a modern day lady psychiatrist? Another keeper from Sandra Hill, of course!
Jorund Ericsson was on a quest to locate his missing brother when Thora, the mind-reading whale, found a way not only to communicate with Jorund but also a way to deliver him naked as the day he was born to the year 2000.
Claiming to be a Viking warrior, Jorund finds himself in a psychiatric hospital among the oddest assortment of lackwits he'd ever seen - and under the care of Dr. Maggie McBride. Now, in addition to his quest to locate his missing brother, Jorund must prove his sanity, contend with his growing attraction to Maggie, and get back to his own time where he belongs. But is his destiny in the year 998 AD or in Maggie McBride's 21st century arms?
A hilarious adventure with fabulously crafted characters and a story that is as fast paced and unforgettable as it is engaging. Sandra Hill has a gift for writing keepers!

5.0 out of 5 stars What Do Women Really Want? A Viking. 18 Dec 2000
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
When you discover Sandra Hill's writing, the little chills start very quickly and you know you're not just in romanceland anymore.
Snug in the hands of a truly gifted author, you're swept up and spun into a world that will leave you gasping from wickedly imaginative, roaring good fun-- and ultimately wiser for the adventure.
There are the seriously funny crossed sigals between ultimate fish-out-of-water Jorund, a naked God of a Viking the likes of whom women haven't seen for the past few hundred years and Maggie, the practical psychotherapist/mother-of-two who adopts him as a patient.
But Jorund is no rape-and-pillage stereotype--Ms Hill knows alot about Viking history and even more about the many shadings of the human spirit and the oddly beautiful ways that men and women connect. Viking values aren't so bad at all, it turns out, and the conflict between Jorund's original quest and his unfolding relationship with Maggie and the girls is both clever and poignant.
In fact, this typically-flawed American male reader was reluctant to show this book to his wife out of Viking envy. Let's just say that, once you discover Jorund's brand of guyhood, you will ask as I did, "what woman in her right mind would not want her own Viking?"
This book totally satisfies at so many levels, I believe you will hope as I do that Ms. Hill's Viking Chronicles continue at least until the end of this century.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lot's of Fun 14 July 2000
By ShawnaLanne - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Fans of Ms. Hill may recognize Jorund, as Geirolf Ericsson's brother who we last saw in The Last Viking. Jorund is catapulted into the 20th century buck naked, save for his sword, on the back of a telepathic killer Whale. He is saved from being put into jail by Maggie McBride, a psychologist and the single mother of twin girls. Of course he is then admitted into the loce mental hospital and doctor and patient end up becoming very close.
Generally I am not a fan of time travel books, but Ms. Hill creates such a fun world that I cn not help but enjoy her work. This is a fast fun and sweet read and if you are already a fan of Ms. Hill's it definitely worth picking up. If you have yet to read one of her books this is a good one to start with.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly, Truly Enjoyable 5 Aug 2000
By Barbara O'Neill - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Suspend disbelief of time-travel long enough to read Sandra Hill's sequel to The Last Viking and you'll have yourself a truly delightful reading experience. Chock full of humor and pathos, this latest addition to Hill's Viking series is bound to touch your heart at some level. At times I found myself laughing out loud, while other times I found a lump forming in my throat as I read of Jorund's (Joe's) loss of family, his bewilderment in a new land and his attempts to help those in the mental-health facility support group into which he has been thrust. His blossoming relationship with Maggie is definitely steamy and that with her twin daughters(who so remind him of his loss) tugged my heartstrings more than once. His fascination with TV soap operas, Big Macs, the Internet and other aspects of our lives that we take for granted are shown humorously through the eyes of one for whom this is a whole new world.
Ms. Hill has just the right touch when it comes to creating intelligent, good-hearted characters with whom you can sympathize and filling their mouths with words that will make you chuckle or get misty-eyed. Her secondary character, former Navy SEAL, Steve Askey (did anyone else read ASCII in this?), and his story (and how Jorund helped Steve with PTSD) is poignant and served to increase my liking of Jorund as a character and Ms. Hill as an author.
I, like the characters in the story, am skeptical of time-travel, but I do believe in miracles. If this describes you, also, then you won't be disappointed with Truly, Madly Viking.
