Deep, Dark & Dangerous

Jaid Black has a very good series some of which are in anthologies. I haven't found one of them yet at my local bookstore or in my library. But If I have to I will be ordering it.
The story takes place in adventurous Alaska for the most part and it is ric ...more
I read Hunters Oath in Playing Easy To Get and absolutely loved it. When I heard about Deep, Dark and Dangerous I just HAD to get it and I'm glad I did because I loved it too.
It was sweet and sexy, just as I had hoped it would be. How could a girl resist those big gorgeous vikings that are dying to find a woman to love and treasure and of course make mad passionate love to at every given opportunity. ...more
The four Vikings Underground books released so far are a great way of escaping the normal everyday books of chick-lit
Its a great & original idea too. I can hardly wait til the 5 the book is released! But til then.... I'll keep reading & re-reading on my long nights of insomnia! Well done Miss Black, hurry up and write more of these books, PLEASE!
She’s a beautiful movie star tired of the shallow Hollywood scene who moves to rural Alaska to live incognito. He’s a Nordic warrior from an ancient civilization, New Sweden, living underground and he captures her when out reconnoitering. He had seen her movies and had already been fixated on her, primarily because of her large, perky breasts. After capturing her, that quickly expands to, in effect ...more
Madalyn is a burnt out actress looking for life in all the wrong places. Leaving Hollywood behind and in a stir as to her whereabouts, Madalyn goes to the opposite extreme by moving to the Arctic Wilde ...more
The overall plot idea for this series, I think is great. But so far I feel as if the author is not pushing it as far as she could and just bein overly simple and bland with it.
If she re-amped ...more
This story is longer than the three, which I appreciated. The events are now hurried on, and I can enjoy more the plot, sex scenes and the climax. This story also hints that what the guy's gods prophesied may come ...more
That being said, I could have used more sex (can't we all), and I would have liked to know more about Drake's story with her man. It was breezed over since the book wasn't really about that, but I think the book should have been about them ...more
I read the paperback version and want to say that even though it was 265 pages it was a really fast read (though I must have my Kindle settings set to small fonts since I tend to only read on my Kindle ...more
I liked the characters, and cared for the heroine, but there was no immediate intense attraction, for her, and no showing of the gradual love she came to feel. It was so blah that I won't even recommend it. It wasn't awful, it was blah ...more
But let's be honest, this book definitely strains the "believe-ability" index pretty far. Starlet in remote Alaska? Vikings living underground? Totally kooky. If the Viking in question didn't work for me, the whole book would fall apart, but I like Black's Vikings so the book, while nutty, worked for me.
I read historical stuff mainly, so I really enjoyed how the author fused the modern world and the medival world together. Fun read!
