To Sin With a Viking is a story about finding love in the most unexpected places, and with the most unexpected person. Styr and Caragh lead different lives, in different places and don't even speak the same language. He is known for being ruthless, a savage killer. Caragh lives in a village suffering from poverty and famine. They have no food, and are wasting away more every day.
That's why when Styr is about to land near Caragh's home, her brother plans on taking their food and ship.
Styr has been married for five years. He and his wife, Elena, have been trying to have a baby for a long while, and the absence of children is wrecking their marriage. For this reason, he's trying for a new beginning, in a new place. Hoping that this can save their marriage
At the landing, tired from the travel and the sea storms, Styr and his friends aren't prepared for the sudden attack from the villagers. When Elena is held hostage by Caragh's brother, she knows the giant Viking will kill her brother. So in order to protect the young and stupid boy, she attacks herself the viking knocking the lights out of him. All hell breaks loose, and Caragh manages to hold the viking as a prisoner. He's stupefied to have her care for him, and share the little food she's got. Caragh is a blow of fresh air in his life, and while she fears him, and what he may do with her brother when he finds him, she's attracted to him.
The attraction is mutual, but they are both aware of Styr married status. As the story goes, we can't help to feel for them. It becames obvious the feelings they have for each other. And is also impossible for them to act on these feelings. At some points, they walk on a very fine line of cheating.
During this book, they must overcome a lot of things, they have to save people, and at the same time find a way to be together without hurting others and their beliefs.
I really liked this book. Even though, historical romance isn't my favorite niche of genres, at reading this book's synopsis, I felt draw. Styr and Caragh became one of my favorite couples I've read this year. I totally recommend To Sin With a Viking for my friends who enjoy a good historical romance, and I'm really looking forward for the next in this series.

I started reading this thinking it was just some pseudo taboo and lots of sex. I wasn't expecting a plot, no less a good one at that.
Mona has a crush for her best friend's Dad, Isaac. She knows she's far too young for him and that he has a girlfriend, but that doesn't stop her feelings, though. After a fight with her drunken father, she runs to Isaac for help, and in the heat of the moment he reveals his feelings for her. Now Mona must decides if she continues with the stolen moments with the man she loves, or if she tell the truth to her best friend, risking to lose the two most importan person in her life.
I really liked this book, and would have rated higher if not for some typo and other mistakes like in the beginning of the book Isaac is described as having blue eyes, then they are emerald green. This is the kind of thing that makes me stop the story and wonder if I'm crazy. While it was a mistake, it didn't put me off the reading and I enjoyed this new author and am for sure gonna check other books by Jenika Snow....more

Wowza, did I totally LOVE this book! Katie Porter is a new author for me, I read a couple days ago their interviews at a book blog and got totally hooked on their books. First in the Vegas Top Guns series, Double Down has it all. It's erotica and romance with a great plot to hold it all together. P.S.: I laughed out loud at Ryan's nickname true meaning!...more

What did really surprised me it was how deep this story is. I thought it would be only some kind of wam-bam-thank-you-ma'am-i'll-love-you-forever. There was time however for their feelings to grow, and for them to really know each other. I totally recommend it! ...more
