2.0 out of 5 stars Boring and repetitive 15 Jun 2010
By Helen Hancox TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I think I'm being quite kind to 'Viking in Love' by giving it two stars when I wasn't actually able to finish it. It was a disappointing read in that when it started out I thought there was some potential; an unhappily-married woman kills her abusive husband and her four sisters help her to cover it up, finding themselves being hunted down as possibly to blame for the mysterious disappearance of the husband.

The sisters go to a distant kinsman, Caedmon, to try to get him to help them. He isn't keen and so has to be 'persuaded' by sister Breanne. This persuasion involves her eventually seducing him, and then the book went on and on about her 'large nipples' (about which I was distinctly bored within a couple of pages). The other sisters variously disappear and we just read of Breanne and Caedmon in bed, knowing that the authorities are looking for the Viking sisters and Caedmon doesn't seem to want to agree to help them or not. At this point I got too fed up and gave up with the book (probably about three quarters of the way through).

I haven't read many books set in the dark ages so there were some interesting aspects to the story. The mixing of the Vikings and Saxons in the East of England (where I live) was interesting, as were the ways in which the two lands traded and intermarried. Unfortunately the story was light on character - neither Caedmon nor Breanne felt convincing - and it didn't hold my interest enough for me to want to finish it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love It! 19 Mar 2010
By Ava M. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Okay, so if you're one of those historical readers that are very mindful of the speak, you will hate this completely. You'll read a lot of terms used in contemporary novels within the speak of the characters but that did not detract from the story. The hero is solid, the heroine is like-able and sensible. This is a comedy thru and thru, and that made it so enjoyable. There are some sexy scenes, so you get your fill. i would say an 7.5 on the sensuality side and it wasnt all roll your eyes corny. The supporting characters in the book are fabulous and the children had me laughing out loud at one point with their "Victory" shouts. It was great, fun, easy reading. I cant wait for another book by this author, hopefully on Wulf!

5.0 out of 5 stars Viking in Love 23 Jun 2010
By MNix - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars dont' waste your time 18 Oct 2010
By Janet Wang - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I can't believe I wasted a few hours to read this book. I kept having the internal conversation, just like the book was using; "what does the author think about the reader? stupid or naive?" These are really modern Vikings, not all like the Regency romance story I love to read. I gave up reading and vowed not to touch the similar books ever again.

4.0 out of 5 stars TOO funny! 3 Aug 2012
By Leah Weller - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Hilarious! Breanne and her sisters find themselves in some trouble so they hie away to Caedmon's keep to sit low. Breanne walks into a keep filled with dirt and smells and children running wild. Caedmon just returned from months of doing his duty to the king and all he wants is some peace and quiet before he settles into getting his keep back in hand. Little does he know that Breanne and her sisters will turn his world upside down. A wonderful adventure with some familiar characters from previous stories. Tyra is one of her sisters and her husband Adam the healer and his assistant Rashid make an appearance along with the sister's father, Thorvald. It was nice revisiting with them. The banter between Caedmon and Breanne had me howling as they found their way into each others hearts.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very Virile Viking without time travel 17 Feb 2010
By W. Scarpinato - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I gave this book 3 stars because it was entertaining and very funny. However, it was (to me) a rehash of her "Very Virile Viking" without the time travel. You've got the same gorgeous viking who has upteen kids running around the keep and he definitely isn't looking for a wife and more kids. I might have given it 4 stars if I had not kept thinking "I've read this before."
