Princess Breanne of Stoneheim has a problem. Her sister's abusive husband has died of unnatural causes and Breanne and her other sisters know the Norman officials will not look kindly upon them for it, even though the killing was warranted. So they hide the body and run, going to the only place they think they will be safe, Larkspur. The situation is only supposed to be temporary, until they can return to their father, the King.
When they arrive, though, they find the keep in disarray. It is filthy and there are children running everywhere. The Viking sisters set out to put this right, and Breanne goes in search of the master of the keep.
Lord Caedmon has spent nine months in the king's service. When he returns home all he wants is to bathe, eat and sleep. Finding a beautiful Viking in his bedchamber shocks him, and he's not thrilled when she starts berating him for the horrible way his keep is run.
Even though he's distantly related, by marriage, to one of her sisters, he's not thrilled with the arrival of the Viking Princesses. When he discovers the real reason for their appearance he knows they can't stay; that is until he strikes a bargain with Breanne that brings her into his bed, and into his heart.
Viking In Love is classic Sandra Hill, written with lots of humor and wonderful characters. The interaction between Breanne and Caedmon is wonderful, as are their relationships with the secondary characters. Each one is unique, and work together to create a world that is entertaining and captivating.
I adored both Breanne and Caedmon and watching them try to outwit each other and fall in love at the same time was brilliant fun. Sandra Hill is one of my favorite authors, and Viking In Love is a wonderful example of why.
