Don't miss the first two books in this unforgettable trilogy -- in one breathtaking volume!
Dream of Me and Believe in Me
Complete in one breathtaking volume -- Books One and Two of an unforgettable historical romance series by an exciting new author, available wherever Bantam Books are sold.
From the Inside Flap
After centuries of conflict, a peace treaty has finally been drawn between the warring Saxons and Norse -- largely due to the wisdom and bravery of the legendary Viking leader Wolf Hakonson and the noble warrior Lord Hawk.
Hawk and Wolf each married women from warring clans to unite the Saxons and Norse. But for all its blessings, the promise of peace will remain fragile -- unless it can be sealed forever by a third and final marriage between these two proud clans....
Come Back to Me
The most feared Viking to come out of the Northlands in a generation or more, Dragon Hakonson, brother to Lord Wolf and friend to Lord Hawk, hopes to steal a few days away by himself before entering into an arranged marriage with a Saxon bride.
But instead of tranquillity, Dragon finds intrigue and passion when he has a chance encounter with a beguiling beauty disguised in boy's garb. It is clear that the fiery-haired, fiercely willed Rycca is running away from something ... or someone.
Dragon is determined to uncover Rycca's reasons for escape and see her safely to her destination. Yet rather than surrender herself to Dragon's care, Rycca dares to defy him, disarm him, and even enchant him.
For Rycca has a secret gift that Dragon cannot see. Stalked by the tragic past, struggling to fulfill the promise of peace, only when it is too late does Dragon discover the truth: that the temptress who has stolen his heart is none other than the woman destined to become his reluctant bride....

Battles between the Saxons and Vikings were nearly everyday issue in those dark and turbulent times in history. Especially the Danish Vikings were raiding the Saxon and even the Norse Vikings Vestfald coasts.King Alfred of Wessex wanted peace for his people and he formed an alliance with the Norse Vikings against the Danes. The strongest proves of this alliance were three important marriages among the Norse and Saxon nobles. Dragons marriage to Lady Rycca of Wolscroft was the third of these marriages and maybe the most important one to keep the alliance and the peace between the two nations. Rycca is a beautiful woman also with a gift who is trying to escape an abusive father and a marriage command she hates. Dragon is trying to keep his word and fulfill his responsibility to his people by marrying an unknown and unseen bride. They both are strong and responsible characters full of passion and honour. They go through many misunderstandings, hurt and suffering in order to fall in love with each other and to earn each other's respect.
The storyline is fast and full of exciting settings in Hawkforte, Landsende and at the Court of Alfred of Wessex in Winchester.The author is very good in describing these settlements so thoroughly and colourfully that the reader feels part of them.Read more ›

The first one, DREAM OF ME, was my favorite, a well written Viking story with historical accuracy in the details, the life of the Norse well described and an endearing romance between two strong willed people. After the “perfect” couple of Wolf and Cymbra, it had to be difficult to find another pair that could hold the readers’ interest as well. So, I think readers may have felt a bit of a let down with the second story, BELIEVE IN ME, the story of the Saxon Hawk and Krysta. Hawk was a very capable leader but without the stormy side that Wolf had which made him such a compelling Norseman.
Finally in this third one we have Wolf’s younger brother, Dragon and the Saxon maiden Rycca. Dressed in her brother’s clothes, her hair tucked into a cap, Rycca flees an arranged marriage she does not want. In her effort to run away, she runs right into Dragon, who insists he tend her bump on the head that she got when she ran off a cliff. Neither will tell the other who they are. Little does she know he’s the man she was promised to wed. Supposedly, Rycca has the gift of discerning truth from lies, yet when Dragon lies to her about the names of his horses, she does not recognize it. But the gift comes in handy after they marry and there’s a big theft at Dragon’s keep in the Northland.
The story starts out a bit slowly, but picks up speed as they sail to the Norse country. Dragon, who was a lover of all women, finds himself content with his feisty new bride and Rycca, who didn’t want to give up her freedom, finds she has a fulfilled life being the jarl’s wife. It’s a wrap up to the trilogy and both of the first two couples make strong appearances, and there are threads from the first two books tied up in this one, so I do not recommend reading tit as a standalone.
DREAM OF ME (Wolf and Cymbra)
BELIEVE IN ME (Cymbra’s brother, Hawk and Krysta)
COME BACK TO ME (Wolf’s brother, Dragon and Rycca)
Like the other two marriages, it doesn't start off well. Rycca is running away from her family and the marriage. Dragon is having some alone time at Hawk lodge in the woods outside Hawkforte. They meet up but neither with tell the other their real names. Dragon wants to help Rycca, but Rycca still manages to get away again. The marriage starts off with a lot of distrust between these two people. And like the other books there is still danger. There are people who don't want the Norse and Saxon's to unite and they are working in underhanded ways to prevent this. So the book follows these goings on and we watch Dragon and Rycca work through their difficulties. We do get to see Wolf and Cymbra and Hawk and Krysta again a couple times in the book and it is nice to see the friendship between the ladies.
I loved this series. I had never read anything by this author before, but I plan to read the rest of her books as well now. I loved all the characters. I don't know which is my favorite couple. Even the bad guys are written well. You know who not to trust, but you can't quite figure out all the details.
I love the hero in this story, I also loved his lady. Would recommend this book to anyone who likes action, a great spin of a story, and some steam.
The two series employ as "their "world" two of my favorite historical timeframes: the Dark Ages of the Norse and early Britons for one, and Regency Era London England and mystical hidden Islands evocative of early Ancient Greek for the second.
I rarely re-read fiction but I will admit I have enjoyed these series at least three times. I expect I'll go back to them yet again.
