The captain is everything a Viking warrior should be -- tall, fierce, blond, and curved in all the right places. Hold it -- curved in all the right places? That's right. This Viking captain, Tyra, is a woman, and a lovely one at that. For years her height and strength and sharp tongue have daunted any Norseman with marriage on his mind. But now, faced with her ailing fathe ...more

I have never read such a *boring* romance novel. I didn't hate this as much as I did The Reluctant Viking because it wasn't so explicitly anti-feminist (though it still had a troubling approach to gender), but this book was actually far less interesting. Apparently, these are supposed to be funny? I keep reading other people's reviews that say so, but I'm just not seeing it. I barely cracked a smile while reading. In fact, this was so dull that it took me about a week to read it because I just c ...more

Setelah Outlaw Viking, siapa sih yang tidak penasaran pingin tahu gimana nasib bocah yang berjasa paling besar dalam hubungan Selik dan Rain? Yes Adam yang itu!!!

Adam dewasa berkelana mendalami ilmu pengobatan sampai kebalik istana para Sultan di Timur Tengah. Kepribadian Adam berubah 180 derajat saat wabah mer

Ugh! This title & cover was deceiving. It is about a butch lady viking that kidnaps a sensitive weenie doctor by throwing HIM over her shoulder and taking him home to save her dying father. Once kidnapped he does not fight back & wines about being treated rough. Then he saves the father & cries when the kids in the home want to be with him. Yuck. Also, there is no "romatic action" until almost the end of the book. Come on! It is a trashy romance, we want it sooner than that.

I joined Superlibrarian Wendy's monthly challenge to read a romance. This month's theme, "Old School" almost stumped me. I didn't think I had any books on my TBR list that were 10 or more years old. But then I remembered that my partner's mother had left a stack of her books for me on her last visit before she died. I kept them as a memory to her, but most of them are not to my taste--Vikings and Highlanders galore when I prefer more "civilized" eras. This is the book I chose, which is part of a ...more

She may not be Zena Warrior Princess, but she was a warrior princess just the same. And she was in a difficult place: he father had decreed that she would have to be married before any of her younger sisters would be allowed to marry. And so goes the adventure of an Amazonian Viking princess who is aware of her height and that she is as tall as many of the men with whom she serves, yet within that grand and glorious woman beats a heart that desires to be loved and cherished just as much as the m ...more

Couldn't finish it. Got to page 67 and that obnoxious Rashid mentioned harems... for the 90th time. Literally EVERY sentence out of his mouth was related to harems. It wasn't cute or funny the first time he said it. It certainly wasn't cute or funny when he said it 89 more times. I really don't see what his purpose was, except to be incredibly annoying.

The story felt like an episode of "Frasier". The beginning of every scene started with some kind of weird subtitle like "Some deals are sweeter t

WTF!!! I was so looking forward to a new Sandra Hill novel. You can imagine my disappointment to discover this is a book released in 2002 that I already have a paperback copy of--the title of the book is changed, but the content is the same as My Fair Viking. I can't believe publishers re-releasing books with different titles. The thought that authors are going along with this seems demented to me. Don't they get it betrays my trust as a reader which means I won't be buying more of their books?! ...more

I just can't get over how poorly written this story is and its weak story line. . . I am all in for cheesy but this just crossed over into bad!

Fantastic read

Funny, so funny. I'm so thankful to have had this as my second Viking read, because the first by another author was so horrendous. A female warrior Viking was perfect fix.

This book was deceptive.....title and front cover makes you think the Viking is kidnapping the women! But no! I did read the back cover and initially the story was interesting about until they got to Tyra's (amazon Viking, needs a healer to save her dad) home. I did laugh out loud initially. I am not a Sandra Hill reader, or I guess I would not be surprised! It was too much fluff and modern day thoughts/comments added in for my liking. I like to escape to the past! The sexual swordplay was good ...more

Sandra Hill writes romances about the Viking period, although from time to time she makes modern-day comments so that modern-day readers can find some way of relating. This particular book made references to James Bond and Ann Landers.
With a picture of an overly bulked up Viking on the front cover, I had the impression before starting to read the book that this particular man would be the "Viking" in the story, and he would "capture" somebody else. But not so! The "Viking" in the story is a 25-

Viking Captive

Don't ever thing of taking Bothor's poems out because they enhance the storyline and bring the humorous side of the bantering between the Vikings alive in your storytelling. I as a reader tend to move from one type of story to another. Because, I become weary of shifters, supernatural, romance, fantasy or urban fantasy, vamps, etcetera. An then . . . The call of the maidens and strong Scottish outcry lore me in again. I all ways seem to need a good highland, Viking or outlander to

This was another funny Viking romance from the great Sandra Hill. You do not need to read the previous books to enjoy this one, but her books are so funny and she does mentions characters from other books, which tie in really nicely, so it would help. Normally, I give 5 stars to all her books but this one, still great, lacked some of the humour from others, my opinion only, so hence the four stars. Recommended.

Anachronistic? Yes. Little headings before new scenes that can be very annoying? Yes. Some stereotypes and a lot of conventions being used? Yes.

I still could not stop reading the book. Sandra Hill does things right. She pokes fun with the mistorical aspect of the romance, and I kind of love how over-the-top alpha heroine Tyra is. The book was funny and cute, and has me wanting to read her backlist. :)

I like Ms.Hill's books. This one has a navy weals (women seals) being propelled back in time to a viking household and contending with the lord there who thinks himself her master. Enjoy the humor and the sparks that fly between the female and male protaganists. They end up in love of course. Enjoyable.

There were a few inconsistencies in the beginning (the description of how Adam and his sister came to stay with Rain and Selik) and I did not agree with the manner Selik and Rain were killed off. Other than that this was an awesome book. The hottest and sexiest by far. It still had fantastic humor, and a wonderful plot line!
Delightfully awful. The dialogue and viewpoints are painfully modern, but funny nonetheless. This book is pure junk food reading, and why not? If nothing else, I have to give the author credit for writing a heroine that's not short and dependent, though she rather went too far in the other direction right into absurdity.

I love, love, LOVE Sandra Hill books...she captivates me with her writing every book and this one was no different.
I also love how when you read all of her Viking books they all intertwine with one another. The characters reoccur throughout the books even though the book has a completely different set of main characters.

This is my favorite Sandra Hill book so far. The story was gripping, the romance was hot and I really devoured it. She has such a great knack for creating ancient historical tales. Really, really liked this novel.

I liked that it was a role reversal. In this case the female was the viking and the male was the captive. It was funny.
