I had a lot of fun with this anthology. The stories were very steamy and diverse, the heroes were all the strong, huge Vikings but the heroines were of different backgrounds.
I loved the fact that though the stories were very short, in most of them I could see a some kind of connection/chemistry between the MCs. Let's be honest, it is rather a collection of individual "scenes" (mostly nights ;) if you know what I mean) between the Vikings and their women but all the storie

When I saw that one of my favorite authors, Lizzie Ashworth, was a part of this anthology I knew I had to read it and I am glad I did! These stories make me want to go to the Netherlands and find myself a Viking, mmm, mmm, mmm. This collection has a plethora of dominant men, one dominant woman and some girl on girl. Those last two aren’t really my thing, but they are still hot as Hades. If you like Alpha males and good Inspiration, ;) then this anthology is what you are looking for! I give this ...more

A sexy anthology of hot Viking Warriors. These steamy group of stories has a little something for everyone, Alpha men, equally strong woman and plenty of hot sex. I admit there were a few stories I wish were a bit longer because I wasn’t quite ready to say goodbye to these sexy Vikings. I definitely found some new authors to add to my reading list. This is a great read, the characters are excellent, the stories kept me captivated and they are HOT, HOT, HOT. Loved it!

***A gifted copy was provided by the author for my honest review****

I read all the books in this anthology but I am reviewing the books by Elle James & Delilah Devlin.
Enslaved by Elle James – Konrad is a strong, handsome virile man who happens to be the man who takes over tall, raven haired beauty named Brigid who also is the clan leader. She took over for her father when he died. All looked to her and she has done all she could for her people. Now, now is this strong, alpha male. She has d

This anthology is a great value!

My star rating is based on the two stories that I’ve read so far.

How to Train Your Skjaldmaer by Delilah Devlin

Torvald was promised one of Hagar’s daughters a wife; one “so fair roses blushed in dismay” but what he got instead was one with a tall angular frame and ruddy complexion. Hagar had pulled a switch on him. It didn’t take Torvald long to realize he much preferred Solveig to her sister.

Solveig wasn’t meek and didn’t dress like a maiden but Torvald was intri

As a fan of Lizzie Ashworth I knew I had to give this anthology a go (just in case you're also a fan of hers, her story is great as always). I really enjoyed the set of stories and each author has the ability to weave a *really enticing* (like really enticing...don't read them at work like I did) story in a short amount of pages. There were a couple of stories that didn't really float my boat in terms of..shall we say, personal preference, but even those still had good elements to them. I really ...more

Smoking Hot!

All of these short stories were amazingly steamy and wonderfully written. If you're looking for a Viking escape, this is definitely the place to be!!

Conquests is an anthology of thirteen hot Viking romances. They are all short stories packed with strong Viking men and women taking land, money, jewels and love as they see fit.
The anthology is made up of thirteen different stories, all written by a different author. Before reading it I had only read books by Elle James so I got a taste of twelve new to me authors.
All of the stories had their own style, but all included the history of what we know about Vikings and adding to it with fictional
Right from the get-go, The Captive by Lizzie Ashworth, set the steamy pace for this medieval Viking collection. My favs are "Asgeirr and the Tree of Life" by Mina Murray; "A Varangian Guest," Melissa Fuchs; and "How to Train Your Skjaldmaer," by Delilah Devlin. But all are well worth it if you like a little spicy with your "history."

Really sad I can't use emojis, you guys. Can't really put my feelings about this anthology into words, I guess. I will say that it seems like finding a genuinely great romance novel is about as likely as my winning the lottery. Heartbreak emoji.

Usually a collection has a theme, and each author puts her own stamp on it. In this case, the theme was so confining (length, Vikings, M/F) that each story is almost identical. There seemed to be additional constraints requiring that some variant of pseudo-archaic language must be used, so cock, pussy, and clit are replaced by staff, quim, and nubbin - by almost every author! The only variation is whether the willing victim has red or black hair to contrast with the blond invaders.

All that said,

Enslaved by Elle James was a short and amusing battle of wills between the Viking conquerer and the Celtic beauty.
