So Ash and Kara marry young, and when Ash wants to go away on adventures as a warrior, Kara's like, "Yes, please go and return to me a hero. I'm so proud of you."

When Ash returns 7 years later from the dead (basically), Kara's about to marry another dude and is like, "How dare you abandon me, you insincere rogue? I'll be a cold shrew no matter how reasonably you act."

And whatever, I could have dealt with the tiring story line if not for the repetition. These characters think constantly, and mos

First, I have to confess that I'm a fan of Michelle's Vikings (and Romans) so was absolutely thrilled to receive a free copy of her latest, in return for writing a review. I don't think it's just because I'm a fan that I enjoyed this story, though. It really did grip me from the moment I picked it up. I loved the heroine, Kara, and completely understood her struggle to trust the husband who'd been missing for seven years. As always, Michelle created a vibrantly believable setting. And delivered ...more

"What happened when your heroes turned out not to be what you thought they were?"

Return of the Viking Hero is about Ash and Kara. Ash was a viking and heir to Jaarlsheim but there was this event in the past where he lost his honor. To make up for it, he decided he'd go a-viking and gather many riches and become the hero he wanted to be.

He married Kara but left several months after to go on his merry quest. But things didn't turn out the way he thought and he ended up being away from home for

When Ash Hringson returns from his journey, he expects a joyous homecoming. That's not to be. His wife, Kara, is being married to another. After all he's been gone for seven years. His appearance is a shock to her and to the rest of the village, but Ash carries the day and claims both his wife and his title. Little does he know more surprises await him. He has a six year old son, Rurik. Can he woo his angry wife and bond with his boy? This story has it all. The book is filled with danger and int ...more

Believing she's a widow of seven years, Kara Olofdottar finally consents to marry Valdar in order to protect her son's inheritance. Only on her wedding day, just as they were to take their vows, Ash Hringson returns in time to stop the wedding! Naturally everyone is stunned and in disbelief as Ash was supposed to have drowned seven years ago. Once everyone recognizes Ash for who he says he is, they return to Jaarlshiem, Kara tells Ash of the son he doesn't know he has and his desire to return ho ...more
Healing Redemption

Kara was married very young to the boy she used to spy on while hiding in the bushes. After seven years she is no longer naive. She is a mature woman who has had to succeed without a husband. Her husband left on a voyage the year after they were married. Now she is a widow who is going to be married today.

Ash has now returned to the land where he grew up, to the father who thought he would not amount to much and to the wife he left behind. He is no longer the young careless man

I was a goodreads winner of the "Return of the Viking Warrior" by Michelle Styles. It was a beautiful and good read. I completed it in 2 Days of weekly holiday.

The book has a love triangle with KARA forced to select between the two her husband ASH (returned after 7 years - think to be dead) and the Waldar (KARA'S choice for protecting the Jaarlsheim Estate). Mainly story revolve around the KARA, ASH, WALDAR and the ASH'S Son Rurik.

the story line was woven extra ordinarily with the major focus on
I liked this book. I liked the writing and the descriptions and I liked Ash. What I didn't like was Kara. She was an idiot!
Anyway I have a full review on my blog. You can find it here:
