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

Review lengkap akan di update saat aku baca ulang buku ini.

Outlaw Viking adalah buku pertama yang kubaca dari Sandra Hill dan sukses membuatku hangover berminggu-minggu.
Kisah ini mengangkat tema time travel yang biasanya kuhindari dan hero garang penuh luka batin yang jadi type sejuta umat.

TAPI novel ini berhasil memberikan 2 karakter h/h sama kuat yang menjadi favoritku. Selik yang mantan playboy kelas berat menjadi seorang prajurit buangan setelah tidak bisa mengendalikan temperamennya pasca m

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

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.

Nothing like having a building fall on your head to send you a thousand years to the past in the middle of a battle field. Crap sorta spoiled that bit. Well it does happen in the first chapter so You'll just have to forgive me.

Okay so mommy (Ruby from the first book) didn't lie and wasn't crazy. She actually did time travel and boy the stories Rain hears of her mom mischief. But enough of that Rain must figure out how to save Selik and find out what happened to change his so drastically from the

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

I read this because I had read the book following this one (My Fair Viking) in the series and wanted to know about the characters mentioned. It was an OK read--I did like the heroine as she had a lot of gumption. We have the usual tortured hero, though he has a good reason for being tormented. But for some reason, this book really dragged for me. Maybe because I know what their future holds.

And, I realized that the there were a few changes in part of the story that conflict with what the next bo

Review of Outlaw Viking (Viking I#02) by Sandra Hill

This book was an improvement over its predecessor in that at least it focuses more on plot. Unlike the preceding book, this one doesn’t dilly dally in the plot to stop and give us boring details about how Vikings lived, etcetera. Those kind of things should be woven into a story WITHOUT interrupting it. Thankfully, the author didn’t waste words in that area.

This book did improve in another section, compared to its prequel. It finally e

This was a good story which reminded me of Woodiwiss, Garwood, Lindsey, Coulter. If you like their historical romance books, you will probably like this one.
I honestly didn't like the Hero and Heroine very much, but every other character was great. I also found that the story dragged on and on, with almost no romance, but again, the supporting characters kept me reading till the end. Ubbi was wonderful and so was Adam!
The one thing I did like about the Heroine was that she was not a virgin.

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

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

The outlaw Viking

I agree with having a outward laugh when reading a novel. I found myself snickering through these chapter's that were endearing. Packed with romantic overture and funny moments. Yes, there were the usual drama which carried the reader thru to the complete storyline. But, it fixated you to the pages and didn't release the reader until completion. Worthy read for Sandra Hill and suggested this novel to any one who enjoys humorous spunky woman characters.

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 loved this book. Ok, I just plain love this series. What's not to love? Time traveling and Vikings!? Sign me up. However, rain annoyed me a bit with her pacifism. I'm sorry but you're in Viking times and country...get over it. Violence was a big part of life back then. But other than that, I laughed and cried.

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

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
