Drawn by Boda's brutal strength and the defiance in his closed fist, she impulsively wagered her safety for his and won him from their Viking captors. But Rosamund's risk is great.

Caught in the middle of a vicious war, Princess Rosamund of Mercia did whatever needed to survive. Now, traveling as part of the triumphant Viking army, she stumbles upon a chained and beaten King's man in the dark of night and knows she must save him. A daring game of dice with the evil Thorkill wins Boda for whatever Rosamund wants him for. However, neither Rosamund nor Boda are really what they appear to be and their attraction to each other could prove lethal or, the strength of their love c...more
As usual, Helen Kirkman writes a superb story. I know her style of writing isn't for everyone, but for me, her writing makes you feel like you are there. I really love the way she writes her characters. The men are strong and heroic and the women are strong in their own way and heroic. There aren't too many historical fictions(romances)out there that take place during the time when King Alfred was fighting to keep Great Britain from being totally in the hands of the Vikings. Apparently he was qu...more

After a long time not reading this genre, Captured by Helen Kirkman is the second Historical Romance I have read recently.

I enjoyed this one mostly for the setting where the Anglo-Saxons had settled in Great Britain after the Romans left. The Vikings also decided they wanted a some of the action. The story takes place during the time of King Alfred. This is definitely a story for romantic history buffs.

Princess Rosamund is travelling with a Viking hoard bound for Exeter where she plans to escape...more
Boda from the first Dragon Banner novel returns, this time as a warrior of King Alfred's, who's been battling to push the Vikings out of England. When captured by a band of Vikings, Boda meets Rosamund, another Mercian captive, with secrets of her own. In her 3 years as a Viking captive, she has created a sense of protection for herself and the witless princess that she hides in plain sight from the Vikings. In typical Kirkman fashion, the narrative is lush and sensuous and emotional, and I am s...more
Rosamund is a princess of defeated Mercia and she rescues a mercian prisoner. She wins him from their Viking captors and they build a relationship. Not everything is as it seems and while they are attracted, the future may change everything for them.

It's not a bad early medieval romance, nothing that would get me to read more but nothing that would stop me from reading more if I came across them.
i was on page 200 n smthng n i abandoned. it's a story supposed 2be of intrigue n suspense, unfortunately it was not captivating at all, not an absorbing read. it was slow-paced n very boring
