Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Madrene Olgadottir, an 11th-century granddaughter of a once-powerful Norseman, finds herself transported to the 21st century in Hill's playful follow-up to Wet & Wild. Lt. Ian MacLean and his team of navy SEALs are hot on the trail of Jamal ben Hassan and his nest of terrorists in northern Iraq when they come upon Maddie, stinking of camel spit and who knows what else. Believing Maddie to be Jamal's mistress, Ian takes her into custody. Cleaned up, Maddie turns out to be a babe, one that Ian (and his "dangly parts") finds irresistible, so he isn't too put out when he's tricked into marrying her to facilitate the government's cockeyed plan to ferret out terrorists in the U.S. using Maddie as bait. Though one would expect Maddie to be frightened by the high-tech world she's been dropped into, she views this new world simply as an advanced civilization and takes it all in stride. She quickly adjusts to such oddities as "pan-teas," "dee-odor-ant," and little people in boxes (TV). The intrigue is lukewarm at best, and the romance is as generic as they come, but few authors can fuse erotica and drop-dead humor like Hill.

From the Back Cover

In and out . . .

That’s Lieutenant Ian MacLean’s goal. The leader of a team of highly trained Navy SEALs— the toughest, buffest fighting men in the world— the sexy, hard-as-nails bachelor has the brains, guts, and brawn to outthink, outgun, and outmaneuver any enemy. But dealing with a buxom, headstrong, iron-willed Viking maiden from a time a thousand years before Ian was born . . . that’s a whole different kind of warfare.

Madrene Olgadottir has no idea where she is or that she’s landed ten centuries in the future. After bopping the arrogant soldier on his head and tying him up, the stunning hellion gives him a tongue lashing that makes a drill sergeant sound like a kindergarten teacher. Then she demonstrates that she has her own special way of dealing with overconfident males.

Hoo-yah, it looks like Operation Rodent is about to get . . . Hot & Heavy

I really love Sandra Hill's writting style, and this book is no exception to what I expect when I read one of her stories.
Karlyn
This is a book that can be read many times & still be worth the read.

I had some problems with this book:

1. The whole marriage thing was pretty far fetched.

2. Maddie should think about breast reduction surgery since we heard about the size of her breasts constantly.

3. She was a shrew; she was always shrieking about something & never shut up. I'm surprised Ian didn't wear ear plugs around her.

4. This is the same problem I have with many books. The male and female leads have an area of expertise due to career, training, etc. Yet one of the leads, usually the female, refuses to let that person call the shots, even though in that particular area, THEY KNOW MORE. EX: Maddie knows squat about the 21st century, has no clue about covert ops. Yet every time Ian tells her to do/not do something that he knows will be dangerous she pouts, is insulted, says it's because she's a woman and if at all possible does it anyway. Completely irresponsible, particularly as her acts can put people in a lot of danger. If she were a photographer & told Ian not to open the darkroom door she'd expect him to adhere to what she says because SHE KNOWS more about it.

I would have given it a three but I enjoyed the follow up on the earlier stories in the series and I like Sandra Hill's writing style.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Over the past few years, Madrene's Viking family has steadily been vanishing; logical probability indicates that they are dead. Despite Madrene's valor, she finds her lands overtaken by invaders and herself sold into harem after harem as a slave. However, since she tends to have an unfortunate effect on her owners' ability to make use of her as a harem girl, she never stays anywhere long. Then, out of the blue, she finds herself free, and a thousand years in the future. Madrene does not know what has happened or what to make of this new world. When she is found by a group of Navy SEALS, they at first think she's a terrorist, but soon become otherwise persuaded. A marriage of convenience, or possibly inconvenience, is the only way to get her legally into the States, and Ian MacLean is chosen as the groom. He is sure that they'll be able to annul it after she's safely established as a citizen, but he hadn't counted on attraction bringing them into a real marriage. The only problem is, Ian is convinced he's married to a lunatic who might be a terrorist, [prostitute], or burglar, albeit a pretty one. There is no way she could be so innocent of all modern things, yet she is. None of it makes a bit of sense. The only thing either is sure of is that they are falling for each other, and it can't possibly work.

**** Granted, this book is replete with places nitpickers can dismantle gleefully, such as how could a woman from the distant past, from the Viking lands, speak English? However, fans of Ms. Hill's broad humor will be pleased as she adheres to all her trademark mechanisms to create a story with zip and a heartwarming end. ****

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Anyone who has read a Sandra Hill book will know what to expect from this one. Anyone who has not read a Sandra Hill book needs to read this one. For humor with a hot romance and a tongue in cheek attitude nobody does it better than Hill.

Ian MacLean is a Navy SEAL, while on a mission to Iraq his team literally picks up a woman, who is thought to be the lover of a terrorist. This straight arrow, upstanding, by the book soldier is dumbfounded, confused and just plain maddened by the gorgeous female who simply wants to raise an army and lead them to recover her fortress which was taken over by a slimy underhanded Viking. Did I mention that was in 1013 A.D.?

Madrene Olgadottir has just escaped from 2 years of captivity in assorted harems. Having used a mystic spell she developed to save her self from being ravished. Now when she has escaped her latest owner and aquired a few of his jewels, all she needs is an army. An army like the one that has captured her. Madrene is known in the Viking world as a "shrew" of which she is proud. Never one to let one word do when 20 sound so much better and relieve so much more stress, she does not find this new world of magic very hospitable.

Getting to Bagdad tells her this is not where she wants to be. The only way to get her to the US is for someone (Ian) to marry her and get an annulment when they find out what she knows about the terrorist. As she knows nothing about this new world, she becomes very frustrated. OF course, Ian has some frustrations of his own. Not the least is how attracted he is to Maddie.

The relationship, steadily encouraged by Ian's SEAL team, is on a train headed for disaster. When the terrorists finally come to get Maddie, Ian finally settles his feelings for the shrewish wench. Is there such a thing as being too honest? Have a good time, read this book.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Navy SEAL Lieutenant Ian MacLean leads his commando team on Operation Rodent; the objective is to eliminate terrorist leader Jamal ben Hassan in Northern Iraq. The SEALS safely land near their target with Ian entering an empty cave to use as the rendezvous point.

In 1013 Madrene Olgadotter is paraded naked and in chains by Steinolf the Vicious who has taken over her home Norstead. When she continues to display a vitriolic tongue, he sells her to a harem. Over the next three years she is sold nine times, but no one touches her as she curses her owners with a shriveled jewel. She escapes her last captivity in Northern Iraq and hides in a cave.

Madrene surprises Ian and hits him with a rock. She binds him, but he easily escapes. He believes the sharp tongued beauty is Jamal's girlfriend while she thinks he is a caliph's slave. As they become acquainted during the dangerous mission, they fall in love, but neither is sure how much time she has although she will soon find her parents and siblings living comfortably in twenty-first century California.

The latest Viking time travel-SEAL romance is a fun tale starring two protagonists who belong together even if their birth dates are over a millennium apart. Madrene is terrific as she curses males with a shriveling ease until she meets Ian who thinks she is crazy but seems to enchanted by her with an opposite spell that leaves him in a permanent state of hardness due. Readers will enjoy Sandra Hill's latest romantic thriller starring this time a female Viking warrior and the SEAL she tames.
