To Viking warrior Magnus, marriage is naught but a contract, a bargain between men for land and title. Lust, love—he scorns such notions as weak and unmanly. But three days before he’s to wed a highland princess, he falls into the maelstrom of a maid’s startled eyes.

Jianne Carlo has done it again... this time with The Destroyer. The love story between Magnus and Deidra is nothing short of fireworks. Love the connection between these two unlikely people. The characters in this book are both unique and intriguing. Jianne Carlo keeps me coming back for more. I highly recommend this book (and the others in the series) if you enjoy Viking romance. I know I'll be watching for new books for sure :)

I love this books. This book's couple is sort of the odd birds of the families. but it was sweet nonetheless. I love Dierdra, and how she loved Magnus and though him beautiful even when everyone else was desperately afraid of him on sight.

Like I've said before, I hate giving books one star ratings unless they absolutely deserve it. This book dives right in to dialogue. I wish the author could have given a little smidgen of background story for the readers. I know it's part of a series, but what some authors don't realize is that most people pick up books without knowing that there are prequels said books, and they start reading.

My suggestion to all authors is to tell the story in a way that doesn't leave a reader confused, and t

Things were rocking and rolling nicely in Viking-land until Scottish lassie Diedra pulled out her menagerie of wild, exotic animals - peacocks, tigers, a bear, and a freakin' monkey named Athena. That's when this book lost most of my respect for good storytelling and good taste.

I loved the twin Fiona - the name always reminds me of Shrek.

Award winning, author Jianne Carlo’s motto is simple: Alpha Me Please.

While strong heroines, exotic locations, and cultural differences are her forte, she goes weak in the knees for warriors of any type, rebels, SEAls, Vikings, and bad-ass mercenaries. Send her a man with an attitude and she’ll find the right woman to tame him.

Nothing makes Jianne’s day more than an email from someone who’s read
