The seventh book in Sandra Hill's Viking II series. My first Sandra Hill book I've read. I'm not normally into the time-travel genre but this was humorous and I'll probably read more.

Re-read, for the 3rd time *g*

Sandra Hill is just a few author who can mix humor and erotica well. Well, at last Viking Series not too erotic. Just at mild level, or steamy. The strength of her books is her capability to make reader laughs so hard, until their stomach hurt. And, that include me too...

Down and Dirty is 7th book of Viking Series 2. Featuring Viking hero/heroine who go a-Viking, correct, go time travel, from their medieval era to Modern America. Down and Dirty take place 2 years aft

I still found this an enjoyable story reading it again ten years later. I particularly liked the plot with its terrorism and time travel. It was full of humor and plenty of exciting action. Add in the SEAL team and little boy for an overall good book. SEAL Zach 'pretty boy' brings his five-year-old son back from Afghanistan then is assigned to train WEAL's including time-traveling Britta.

Why do I continue to read Sandra Hill's "Viking/SEAL" books? The writing is not my style - aggravating and annoying, actually. But she makes up some of the coolest characters in the universe (well, not actually OUR universe, sometimes). I usually enjoy books about SEALS and other military heros, I usually enjoy time-travel storylines and I always enjoy books about Cajuns. Is this enough to keep reading Ms. Hill's books and then pulling my hair out (again!) afterwards? Apparently. Oh well. . .

I love Sandra Hill! This one was laugh out loud funny. I didn't realize it was a part of her Viking II series, so I read out of order (not a big shocker with me), but I still understood everything that was going on.

I loved the humor of the characters, and ya gotta love when a woman is tough enough to take down a SEAL. lol.

Definitely would recommend this to anyone who likes humor in their books, ass kicking women and men, and some time travel thrown in.

Basic time travel romance with laughs and humor thrown in with some exciting tupping...
Kept reading series until I ran out of books to read. So sorry for the generic review.

These Viking time-traveling stories are pips. I just love the witty dialogue of the Norse warrior Britta with all its feisty old-world charm and language mutilations. She was quite the match for her "knave-y SEAL."

Just a fun dumb story. Great to read if you need a pick me up. Don’t need to read the other books to understand what’s going on.

WHOOO HOOO. Finally. My name.

You don't understand if you have a name like Susan or Katie or any other name that is common place. But my name is Britta.

I've never had magnets that I could buy or pencils with my name on it ... or key chains or cups ... my name isn't a "normal" name. Sure, I bought the Brittany magnet once and cut off the "ny" but that's not the same (althought this did make me happy at the time).

BRITTA Asadottir is a strong woman ... very very strong. And when she's pulled from
Little did I know this was #7 in the series when I picked it up. It is absolutely delightful. Yes, it does have Navy SEALS, but it is a change from the usual gung-ho. I will have to start at the beginning of Sanda Hill's Viking II Series now.

Zach "Pretty Boy" Floyd is a single Dad, trying with the help of many friends and family, raising a 5 year-old son. As it turns out, Sammy, is the result of a fling Zach had in Afghanistan six years ago and just found out about. Zach steals Sammy away from h

Once again I was able to spend a few hours in the cheesiness that I have come to love with these books. This one was great in the aspect of it was so nice to see "Pretty Boy" get taken down a notch and not just with a girl, but with a son who managed to earn the name "Sammy the Snot". Seeing the all American ladies man bogged down with a difficult child made for so much fun, the only thing better were the verbal battles with Britta. These 2 were so perfect for each other I was rooting for them i ...more

Book #55

This book was OK. I think I had the same problem with it as the other book I read of Sandra Hill's ... it jumped around a bit too much for my taste. Or maybe it's that the character's thoughts are distracting when they're thrown into dialogue. I liked, not loved, the hero "Pretty Boy" Zach. I think this is because he was often congratulating himself on all the women he attracts (or has attracted in the past - I will give it to him, he wasn't a cheat). I did come to love little Samir/Samm

This one was good times, but not my favorite of hers. I do love that the characters had a bit more of a history than the usual "we-just-met-and-it-was-love-but-oh-CONFLICT-DELAY"; makes for a nice change of pace. Also that she spurned him when they met before and she starts to here but you know that ain't going to last because THE TITLE. Also the time-traveling is just hilarious. Hill is hilarious. I will always buy and read your books, Hill, especially now that I hear there is going to be a vam ...more

Zachary and Britta... 4.5 badass WEALS Viking stars!!

Must confess, I was so confused in the beginning of the story and Britta's strange language - I even contemplated giving up. But then the whole time travelling thing came into play and got me curious.

I have never read something like this, and was pleasantly surprised! It was hillarious, interesting and sexy.

Multiple orgasms to the author! LOL!!!!

Loved this one with Sammi the Snot. Sandra Hill really knows how to write children the way I love 'em. Laughed out loud numerous times and mostly with Sammi. I do remember the last one of Sandra Hill's that I particularly loved was the third one in this series with all the children. Love this author, she really cracks me up.
The story of Britta and Zachary. Britta has time traveled from old Norway. Zachary is a military SEAL and has experienced time travel where he met Britta two years ago. He can not get her out of his mind and when she comes to his time he wants her.
Hits the spot juuuuuuussssst right.

Loved the main characters. Great chemistry. It was funny to watch the cocky playboy SEAL thrown to his knees by an equally impressive Viking warrioress.

Worth every cent and every minute.

I believe this is the first book I've read by Sandra Hill and I discovered she is an amazing author. Zach and Britta were a great couple to get to know and love.

Book 7 in the story of a viking woman we met in another books when the SEALS went back in time. She came forward now and is a woman SEAL called WEAL. Another good story in the series.

Definitely an interesting series. I sorta started in the middle but that's okay! 1000 year old valkryies are an interesting romantic twist.

This is another Navy Seal/Viking book. I love those Seals and Vikings.
It's a real funny read and goes along with the series.
Good book I didn't realize till after starting it that it was part of a series would like to read the others.
