Editorial Reviews


"Delle Jacobs has written an extraordinary novel that will take you back, make you cheer first for the women and their proud stand. Then the men and their gentle hopes, and passionate needs. It will melt your heart, make your soul tingle and long for such passion while laughter at the antics of the trouble making women will echo around you. Loki's Daughters rates a definite four stars, not just for the quality of the story, but the engaging, smooth flow of the plot and characters, the rich detail and imagination that has went into it. And the superb style of writing that keeps you engrossed from first page to last." Reviewed by Shadoe for Romancing the Web, 4 stars

About the Author

A native of Illinois, Delle Jacobs has been crafting stories since the tender age of four. She earned a degree in geography from the University of Oklahoma and worked as a cartographer until eventually becoming a social worker specializing in troubled teens and families. Everything changed, however, once she began writing books in 1993, and by 2004, literary success convinced her to quit her day job and focus full time on writing. She is a seven-time finalist for the Romance Writers of America’s Golden Heart Award, which she has won an unprecedented three times, in addition to numerous other writing awards for her novels, including His Majesty, the Prince of Toads, Lady Wicked, Sins of the Heart, and Aphrodite’s Brew. Along the way she discovered a knack for designing e-book covers, which is a great way to get her creative juices flowing when her book characters are being particularly uncooperative. She lives today in southwest Washington State with her family.

More About the Author

I like to say I live in a fantasy world of endless green forests, cascading silvery rivers that run between shining, snow-capped mountains, and within reach of both a high desert scabland and a sandy-beached, marine blue ocean. It's called Washington State. I share this wonderland with two to three generations of adult males (more or less, depending on time and circumstances), the requisite two writer's cats of mixed heritage and contradicting dispositions, and all sorts of other mossy-backed folk who don't mind the rain that makes our land so magical. I love to fill my historical and fantasy romance with this same feeling of magic.

I'm a three time winner of the Golden Heart and have won many other awards for my books. I have been involved in e-publishing almost from the industry's beginning. Besides writing, my other favorite addiction is designing covers for ebooks.

Now, it's true, my life doesn't always seem all that rich in fantasy and beauty. But every word of it is true. I might have dressed it up a bit for the introductions, but since that's the way I like it, that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Thanks again to all of you who have taken the time to read, review and appreciate my books, both publicly and in personal notes. I love hearing from fans, so if you're of a mind to drop me a line, please don't hesitate.

LOKI'S DAUGHTERS is an absolutely captivating historical romance. It is set in the 9th century in a land called Cumbria, and filled with desperate Celtic warrior women, murderous, vile Vikings, and (though it may seem a contradiction in words) brave, honorable Norsemen. The story opens with Arienh, the female protagonist, traveling to a hill to count ancient stones which serve as a calendar of sorts for her village. On her way, she encounters a fearsome Norseman whom she believes to be a Viking. She hates Vikings because her village has suffered greatly at their hands. All of the men in her village, except one old man, have been either brutally killed or captured as slaves by the savage race. Moreover, her sister, Birgit, was raped, impregnated, and struck on the head by a savage Viking during one to their pillaging raids, causing her to slowly go blind. For all of these reasons, Arienh hated all Vikings, except one - the one Viking boy who saved her life ten years ago during a raid by hiding her from the other savage ones. All of the other Vikings she had ever met had always sought to kill and destroy all her village ever had.

She instantly recalls how they killed her father, brother, uncle, cousin and how they captured her other brother to sell into slavery. She is determined to prevent this Viking, upon whom she has suddenly stumbled, from harming anyone else in her village. Arienh knows that she must warn her village by sounding the alarm. She attempts to flee, but the man has already seen her and chases her, trying to stop her flight. He catches her hair and pulls her into his arms. In the ensuing struggle, she stabs him in his gut with her knife. Shock runs through both the man and Arienh.

I stayed up until the early hours of the morning reading this book. The characterizations are wonderful. Jacobs doesn't shy away from the hard emotional issues facing her characters and their relationships. Arienh and her sister still suffer the emotional and physical wounds of the last Viking raiders. Now a new group of Vikings has arrived led by Ronan who claims he and his men merely want to farm the land and take agreeable wives. But Arienh has seen only brutality from Vikings and distrusts his attempts to help her and her village.

Jacobs's writing is just gorgeous. She has a gift for describing the landscapes of Celtic Cumberland, as well as the human heart. The subplot of Arienh's sister made me cry.

I highly recommend this book. It's a tender story of love and healing.

Also, Loki's Daughters contains the funniest scene I have ever read in romantic fiction.

Set in a time on the cusp between the Dark Ages and Medieval Times, LOKI'S DAUGHTERS tells a tale for all times and seasons. A story of women who have had to learn to live without men, and of a band of Northmen who just want to make love, not war. The juxtaposition of the women's well-justified terror--they've lost all but one eccentric old man in their village to Viking invaders--and the newcomers' desires for safe haven and wives, not necessarily in that order, is highly dramatic, beginning with the heroine very nearly killing the hero and then, when finding herself unable to finish him off, discovering a man of warmth and humor, even in the face of death.

Ms. Jacobs paints a portrait of the ninth century as if she'd actually lived it. LOKI'S DAUGHTERS should appeal to the most fastidious historians, as well as to romance lovers, who will enjoy not just one, but multiple, romances facing the almost insurmountable conflict of turning hate and fear to love.

Loki's Daughters was an entertaining Kindle cheapie with Celts and Vikings (who are not the pillaging kind, but much harder to get rid of.)

The pranks by the Celtic women whose village is taken over by huge hunky Vikings, were fun and are what earned the women the nickname of Loki's daughters. The way one of the pranks backfires on the women is particularly eye-opening. I liked that author Jacob's didn't rush the transition from fear and suspicion and that it took patience and a sense of humor for the Vikings to gain the trust of the women who had lost so much in their previous encounters with Viking raiders.

There are really two pairs who are the focus of the story. The first pair: Ronan who has returned to claim the red-haired girl he saved when they were both young. But the woman he finds is not that girl - Arienh has been strengthened by adversity and Ronan nearly looses his life to her when he finally encounters her again. In a more supporting role, are Ronan's brother Egil and Birgit, a fragile woman who really suffered at the hands of the raiders.

I'd have been happy with either of the Viking brothers as leading men, both were great and both were really different. And I'd have had a hard time choosing between them, so it was great that there was a romance for each of the siblings - and I was happy that I didn't have to wait for a sequel to get Egil and Brigit's tale. My only nit with the story, was a secret which drove both Arienh's and Birgit's actions and dragged on a bit too long.

Loki's Daughters was one of those great Kindle finds - I really happy to have stumbled on to it.
