As tall and striking as the Valkyries of legend, Dr Rain Jordan was proud of her Norse ancestors despite their warlike ways. But she couldn't believe her eyes when a blow to the head transported her to a nightmarish battlefield and she had to save the barbarian of her dreams.
He was a wild-eyed berserker whose deadly sword could slay a dozen Saxons with a single swing, yet

3.5 stars This was a fun romp through medieval England with a hot scarred Viking named Selik. Rain Jordan had been haunted by dreams of a Viking in battle all her life, and it really troubled her because she claimed to be a pacifist. When Rain and her mother go to a Viking exhibit in York, in present time, she sees a painting that is a scene from her dream. She gets hit on the head with some falling plaster and BOOM! she's on the battlefield that was in the painting and her dream.

Selik was a won...more

What could pull at your heartstrings more than a deliciously tormented Viking hell-bent on avenging the horrendous murder of his wife and son? How about said Viking surrounded by a dozen filthy orphans, and one arthritic manservant? Sandra Hill's Outlaw Viking ripped at my heart then made me laugh until I cried. The interaction between Selik-the brooding Viking, and Rain-the time-traveling doctor from the future was bold and entertaining. (Though I find myself wondering where oh where I can find...more

Maybe it's because this book is fifteen years old, but this was ridiculous. I sort of tolerated the behavior of the characters because they're, well, Vikings. But when the main character had a chance to go to back to modern times, she didn't take it, which seems silly to me. I think that any woman would have gone back to their own life, rather than be held captive by some dickhead Viking. Seriously, I'm just not a fan of the "I have to fix him" plot, because frankly, that doesn't work at all in...more
I love these Vikings. These books make me laugh!

I loved the modern day woman- strong and feisty – thrust back in time to the arrogant Viking. At times I laughed so loud I had to explain myself to those around me.

These are the books I reach for when I want a light, fun, read with irresistible, hilarious alpha males.

Dibanding Tarnish Lady, cerita yang ini jauh lebih lumayan walaupun gw tetep gemes sama sikap heroine yang sabar; kekeuh utk trs merangkul sang hero ke dalam kehangantan cinta; berusaha keras mengembalikan kepercayaan sang hero plus ga pernah putus asa walaupun berulang kali dipermalukan dan di hina-hina oleh sang hero.

Agak mengobati itu ending ceritanya bagaimana sang heroine berlaku dingin ke hero karna telah melemparkan secara mentah2 setiap yang diberikan sang heroine. Tapi gw akan semakin p...more
Suspend credibility and be thoroughly entertained. This is my second Sandra Hill's Vikng series and I can't get enough of her characters. The literal understanding of English expressions by certain character never fail to amuse.

Wow. Thanks, Liz for this special, surprise gift. I had no idea how much PORNO is in some romance novels. Or that I could roll my eyes quite that much while reading and still finish the book.
I loved this book. I enjoyed how Rain gave Selik a run for his money at the end and he had to really work hard in order to get the girl!
Loved Sandra Hill Stories!

This is the second in a 2-book mini-series within the series. The first book introduces Rain’s mother who has also traveled back, way back in time.

This book while it has its moments of humor is more of a tear-jerker than anything else. I have re-read this book at least 25 times and I still can’t help tearing up or out and out crying during several well written and emotional scenes.
These are two extremely well developed and believable characters. I enjoys the fact that Rain sticks to her modern e...more
Another of Sandra Hill's fine historical romances set in the Dark Ages and carefully researched to give modern readers a far more accurate understanding of the Viking/Saxon/Celtic cultures that warred against one another while finding ways to blend historically. This story stands alone, but readers who enjoyed book one in this series will recognize that the heroine is the 30-year-old daughter of Ruby Jordan, heroine in book one. Thoraine Jordan has, like her mother, been transported back in time...more

belum ada cover terjemahan -__-"


lebih menarik cerita pertamanya.....dan si Rain ini anaknya....pas dia terlempar ke masa lalu, ketemu deh ama Selik, viking muda yang selalu mdampingi ayahnya dulu.

untung Rain punya sifat keras kepala, plus profesinya menjadi dokter, Rain pun punya daya tawar di sisi Selik..romance nya maju mundur, sama2 keras kepala sih.....

lucu pas akhir2....dmana Selik ngelabuin Rain supaya mau nikah dengannya

I really liked the story line and humour in the book but the main character was seriously annoying. Her steadfast pacifist stand was annoyingly strong. While I understood the back story of why she became a pacifist, in light of where/when she was in time she was excessively rigid, especially given how she wasn't really that much of a pacifist anyway. It wasn't until the last couple chapters that she backed off but by then she annoyed me so much.

Regardless of how annoyed I was by that particular...more

Auf die Annehmlichkeiten des modernen Lebens verzichten? Kein Kühlschrank, kein Herd, keine Waschmaschine, kein Internet ...? Für mich eigentlich undenkbar. Doch während der Lektüre drängte sich mir öfter als einmal die Überlegung auf, ob Selik dieses Opfer nicht doch wert wäre. Klarerweise zeigen sich einige Probleme zwischen den beiden Helden, die ihre Ursache in der Tatsache haben, dass ihre Einstellung Jahrhunderte trennt. Gar nicht zu reden von der Offenheit von Rain in vielen Bereichen, di...more
I love Sandra Hill but this book was awful. Her books are usually so good, but this book was slow and boring. I liked the characters but they didn't do enough.
Love love love it! The God voice is hilarious! And I'm still curious..where the hell is the Viking S-Spot?
Feb 15, 2012 Tammy rated it 4 of 5 stars  ·  review of another edition Recommends it for: historical romance readers who like time travel
sad with humor, sex, and violence, time travel with love. I always like Sandra Hill books.

Rain the daughter of Ruby Jordon (from the reluctant viking) doesnt believe her mothers time travel stories until she finds herself at a tenth century battlefield seeing the man (viking) of her dreams. Selik is full of rage and has room for only vengance in his life. He definitely doesnt want love. The God voices have other plans.
I love, love, LOVE Sandra Hill books...she captivates me with her writing every book and this one was no different.
I also love how when you read all of her Viking books they all intertwine with one another. The characters reoccur throughout the books even though the book has a completely different set of main characters.
Thought this book was boring. There were some laughs here and there; but overall it was way way way to drawn out; and Selik was a crappy 'hero'. Rain started out as a strong character, but turned into a whiny, clingy and annoying 'heroine'. It was really annoying to see just bad main characters, in a dull story line.
The best in the series
aww man it was such a good story, it was a little long but still very good, i loved all the plot twists and turns, and all the characters were great i really liked rain's character she was great so was the love of her life Selik and the voice of god character =)
Amazingly wonderful book! Being placed on my top 5 book list for sure! I laughed, cried, giggled, said aww out loud so many times my kids started asking me what I was reading, sobbed, got mad as hell, and even blushed a few times.
I love the endearing characters and the delightful humour. This auther really made me feel for rain and all the struggle she had to endure. That said ther was some really good comic relief. Absolutely, you have to read this book.
It was better then her first book, so not a total waste. The religious, talking to God aspect got a bit irritating. Overall, funny, and not as irritating as The Reluctant Viking.
BJ Rose
Vikings and time-travel should be an unbeatable combination, but this particular one didn't 'wow' me. Although I did like this book, I didn't feel compelled to continue with the series.
still recovering from shock when Adam asked, "So, do ye like stickin' it in her?" OMG!!! he's just 7 years old. I think I'm gonna have a heart attack. that's soooo not funny.
I loved this book. It was the type of book you sit on the egde of your seat, laugh and cry. I couldn't put it down. Can't wait to read some of the others.
I really liked this book. Other than GOD actually talking to many of the characters I found it very entertaining.
