Warrior Woman,
I cannot explain the powerful magic that carried me back across the centuries to you. In my own time, I am but an actor on the screen. Yet here I stand, curiously at home in a primitive age—a Viking
jarl, miraculously resurrected from the flames of oblivion. And you are my destiny, my wild and beautiful Valkyrie. You hide your pain and sadness behind a mask o

My Thoughts
Okay so... here's the background story. So I was watching television one night, minding my own business, and I saw a commercial in which Fabio walked on the set, twinkling smile. I giggled thinking 'aw, Fabio', and then stopped and asked myself, 'Ya know, I know who Fabio is... I've seen him on commercials for 'I can't believe it's not butter!' when I was a kid, but what the heck did Fabio do to get famous? That part was a bit fuzzy. I got the whole 'sex symbol' vibe, but didn't know

This book was the backup to Pirate, just in case that one wasn't frightening enough.

"For here was a woman without career objectives who could give him the babies he so dearly wanted" is an actual line from the book. A completely unironic line.

That probably tells you everything you need to know.

To justify giving the book two stars rather than one, all I can say is that its very existence made me laugh a lot. In fact, I am still sort of laughing about it.

Bought this as a joke for a friend. She was so horrified that she actually gave it BACK to me and forced me to read it.
I will never be able to scrub my brain free of the taint. I could have gotten beyond the bad writing, the horribly contrived plot, even the bad character developmental....

I have loved all of Fabio's historical romance novels, and this one was no exception. I could tell that Fabio went to great pains to research the time period the book was set in and the vivid details given made the book come alive. Would make a GREAT movie.

Nice story with good charm... I imagine myself living during the time of the Vikings and whooaaa I think I want to go back this period. This is the first book that I read so I keep on reading his books.

Bad, bad, baddy bad. I skimmed the last half of the book.
