From the Back Cover

Hell Hath No Fury Like a Princess Scorned!

Princess Drifa can certainly see whySidroc Guntersson is a living legend—on battlefield and in bedchamber both.But the King of Stoneheim’s willful daughterpitches a royal fit when she learns of the truereason for the virile Viking’s passionate attentions.A third-born son with no hope of inheriting thefamily jarldom, scheming Sidroc must marry andis interested in Drifa only for her father’s landand money. The barbarian is lucky she just crackshim on his fool head with a pottery pitcher!

Five years later, Drifa needs Sidroc’s protection—in Byzantium, no less!—though revenge holdsmore appeal for this man she left for dead.’Tis a pity two such perfect enemies matcheach other so well, passion for passion.So much so that the bold Viking berserkeris soon thinking marriage again . . .only this time it will be on his terms!

Customer Reviews

This was a very funny and loving story!
Stephanie Ross
Also the main characters are constantly apart, half the time in the book, only to come together for bedplay as they call it.
Bukcrz
Have read everything I can find of hers and just love all of her books and charactors.

No, this book is not that bad but this is the second book of Ms. Hill published within the last six months that just came out lacking for me. I finally pinpointed what I don't like on this book and the `A Dixie Christmas': over the board chaos to force humor. I loved Ms. Hill's delicate balance of tavern humor and wits especially on the first books of Viking Series 1. I think she did a fantastic job on them.
However on this book (and Dixie Christmas) the first 75% is stretched with unnecessary and forced humor. I keep thinking `c'mon, give me action' but instead half the book was just stretched too long with `clever word exchange' that came out too trite. Trite because it is used to dodge main issue - like the deceit - and halt the flow of the story.
Another thing I did not like on the book (and every book with this kind of plot) is the assumption that REAL intimacy can develop with deceits between characters - main or not. Or maybe it's just me who find it hard to trust and love a man knowing there is personal lies/deceit between us, or even in developing friendships. Now sex just for the heck of it is another story because you don't have to trust the other half of the equation. Which to me is just what has been developing between the main characters and then we are led to believe it is love? It is just hard to swallow for me.
Overall, the book started with promise of laughter and mayhem when our hero found himself between a rock and a hard place. Then here comes our heroine, close to falling then caught herself just in time to show the hero she is more than just a pretty face. Then it went downhill when the book was peppered with TONS of characters - to deliver the `historical' part of the book.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
An arrogant lout and an independent princess cross words and pots which set the stage for a long and roundabout romance plagued with mishaps, kidnappings, lustsome thoughts and naughty shenanigans.

Such is the final story of the last unmarried princess in King Thorvald's household, Drifa. She's a woman of quick temper, deep passions and has a fanatic enthusiasm for all plants green, flowered and tall. That small hobby of hers gets her into more trouble than she believed possible. Because Drifa has been allowed to make her own decisions and get her way at home, it's given her a false sense of security and safety. She comes across as a woman who knows what's going on but even when she's hit by the figurative wall of bricks, she remains inured from the thought of possible harm to her. She's a king's daughter, what could possibly happen? She accepts the need to be cautious in name only and goes off to do what she wants to do anyway. I knew she was going to lead the hero on a merry chase and I was right.

The hero, Sidroc, at first doesn't seem like a hero at all, but a manipulative jerk. Only as I read did I find out this man has undiscovered emotional depths hidden behind a veneer of lust - for both war and women. He's not what he seems at all but the conflict comes from Drifa overhearing a conversation that was meant for another man's ears only. What a man does when he thinks all is lost shows his inner character. Sidroc is not a quitter, nor a shallow man. He is a man of loyalty, valor and integrity, even when he doesn't want to be. He also has a liking for adventurous sex and he uses that as a clever ploy to get Drifa to do what he wants her to do. The fun part comes when the tables are turned and the heroine ends up getting him to do what she wants.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
His father orders Sidroc Guntersson to throw the female baby into the thrall. However, the widower decides he needs a wife to raise his daughter. Sidroc woos long in the tooth hybrid Princess Drifa, daughter of King Thorvald. They marry, but she becomes irate with his boasting of gaining wealth as a third born and a mom for his child; Drifa hammers her new spouse with a pitcher to his head before walking away. When he awakens after days of unconsciousness, he learns his wife has left him and his baby is gone.

Five years later, Sidroc and Drifa meet in Byzantium. He is irate to learn she has a daughter Runa. Needing revenge, he courts and beds his virgin wife. Stunned Sidroc realizes his spouse is raising his daughter. When Drifa is kidnapped, Sidroc vows to rescue her so they and their child can forge a loving family.

This is similar in tone to many of her Viking romances (see The Viking's Captive) with modern day humor imbued into a Dark Ages gender war. The lead couple is a delightful pairing of two strong individuals who both melt in each other's arms though sometimes caustically and with their child. Readers will appreciate the battle between two powerful adversaries in love as even their trysts are jocular (don't tell Sidroc I said that).
