This is my first Viking romance, and I was immediately drawn in to the world that Mairibeth MacMillan created. She paints an enthralling picture of Strathclyde in the 9th Century, making me look at the view from my window onto that same river in a very different way. Some things haven’t changed – it still rains a lot, we still don’t have decent summers, crops are hard to grow – and those parallels made me smile. But the battles fought for the lands and control of the various sea lochs, those wer ...more

The Viking’s Cursed Bride by Maribeth MacMillan
The Brothers of Thunder #1

A bit of Cinderella with the ugly stepsisters and horrible stepmother but so much more that that fairytale with a marriage of convenience, a bit of clairvoyance, a few unhealthy doses of treachery, battles to be fought, secrets guarded then shared, a bit of romance and a series that I can’t wait to read the next book of.

The Viking’s Cursed Bride is the first in a series set in the ancient kingdom of Strathclyde — now west-central Scotland — and I can’t wait to read the next.

High-born Aoife has fallen foul of her jealous and controlling stepmother, who dominates her father. When the opportunity arises she’s married off to Tormod, a Viking leader, as part of a peace treaty. Aoife knows her position is perilous and that her father has no concern for her welfare, and matters are made worse by what she’s always bee

Cursed but loved

I love a story about two people who have troubles in their lives but try hard to rise above it and become better people. Tormod made some mistakes as Jarl. Aoife is considered cursed by her people. Tormod tries to do what is right but is tormented by his past. Aoife can't trust because of her curse. There are friends and enemies. Friends sometimes have a hard time trusting. Some of the enemies are family. But Tormod and Aoife learn to trust one another. Good read.

Not good

I decided to go with a one star rating because it just felt like someone wrote it as an essay. It was just bad. I'm hurting that I paid money for this book. Hopefully other books by the author will be better, but I won't purchase any of them.
