Let's call this a SKeeper. OK, so it is a word that I made up. THE ENCHANTMENT aka MY WARRIOR'S HEART as stated on the front of the book in small print, is an almost-perfect example of how a romance should evolve. I don't usually read love stories about Vikings or Norsemen because there is just too much that is unknown about this period. But if a love could develop like what evolved between Aaren and Jorund I would have enjoyed having been there.

NOTE: This is the same book as THE ENCHANTMENT, the re-release under another name.

Simply Wonderful Viking Tale!

I have come to appreciate Betina Krahn's attention to detail in her well told romances. She spends time with each description, each phrase...it's excellence in writing. At 400+ pages, you definitely get a well woven tale that spends time with character development, and gives you a feel for the way they looked at the world, the customs of the time, etc. Here's a Viking romance that takes...more

Brilliant Viking romance...

I have come to appreciate Betina Krahn's attention to detail in her well told romances. She spends time with each description, each phrase...it is truly excellence in romance writing. At 400+ pages, you definitely get a well woven tale with this one that spends time with character development, and gives you a feel for the way they looked at the world and the customs of the time. I loved it.

This is a Viking romance that takes you back to the time in the late Viking per...more

What a stupid book. But then again, I didn't mean to get in to a romance novel. Once I realized it was romance I decided to give it a shot anyway. The original reason I wanted to read this was because I thought it would be a Viking adventure.

Naturally there has to be conflict between the two would-be lovers. The female character showing uncanny strength both physical and mental keep up with the chauvenistic, antagonistic male lead. Of course, both have to be bewitchingly attractive, and have tr...more

Sweet love story, really different. I enjoyed this one.

I guess just not my thing. Viking son of the king who does not like to fight and seems only interested in having all the women in the group in "his furs". Enter amazon-like female warrior who for various reasons must fight him. He intends a conquest but not in battle. I gave it more than the 100 pages test and just had no interest in reading on.

Never finished. I lost interest. The writing was good, but I suppose it was just not the style I like.
