Well it is no secret I am a huge fan of Michelle Willingham books and she never ceases to amaze me. I just finished this book bcoming from me who has loved all her books that really something. This book is a bit darker in a way as it touches a couple subjects you rarely see in historical romance these days infertility and children with special needs. OMG this book is really wonderful as having close friends with children with special needs this book really touched my heart. It also touches the subject of child abuse and how it affects those into adulthood and even as adults there are so many self esteem issues. Of course back in the day they didn't have therapists or Doctors to help you deal with these issues so I found this book just fascinating although different then Michelle's other books and at this time I will say it my favorite book of anything she has ever written!

You can read this book alone but I highly recommend you read To Sin With A Viking the first book in this series as that way you can understand the heroine in this books first husband Styr Hardrata and the Irish women Caragh Ò Brannon he falls in love with or else I feel you will dislike her first husband and his true love without having any insight of their real story or true characters. Plus they are ancestors of previous Michelle Willingham books The Viking Hidden Love Slave, The Holy and The Viking in Warriors in The Winter and My Warrior Slave book 1 in the mega fabulous MacEgan book series. So they really did need to happen plus it explores that not all arranged marriages work no matter how hard you try. I personally love connecting the dots to from previous characters of books I have read and loved whether future or past characters.

I received a copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review.
I must admit that Viking romances are one of my guilty pleasures. I think if most women are honest they would admit there is something romantic about being swept away by an honorable warrior, hell bent on protecting their honor, and a bit too wild to tame. I realize this is most assuredly not the most PC comment I could make, but come on! The braided hair, the rock-hard muscles, the long broadsword (cough, cough—pun intended), and this novel didn’t disappoint in that area.
In a setting as harsh as the Norsemen themselves, Ragnar and Elena must survive, relying only on each other. This life-or-death struggle throws them together until they can no longer ignore what’s always been between them. It’s the formula as comfortable to seasoned romance readers as a snuggly blanket, and the scenes become fantastically steamy.
The action moves quickly; however, that’s both a plus and a minus. It doesn’t drag, and it’s a quick, relaxing read without too many side plots, but at times I felt lost. This is the second in a series, and I needed a little more backstory. I felt as though I had started reading in the middle of the novel. There were a few flashback scenes, the first of which would have been much better as a prologue. It would have gone a long way to that whole backstory issue.
Overall, if you enjoy a good ole “warrior wants girl, warrior takes girl, girl can’t help herself” story, you’ll like this one.

To Tempt A Viking by Michelle Willingham

Publisher: Harlequin

Rating: 4 stars

Summary (from Goodreads):

She’s Testing His Resolve!

Warrior Viking Ragnar Olafsson stood by as his best friend claimed the woman he desired the most. There was only one way to quench the deep darkness within him—become merciless in battle.

When Elena is taken captive, fearless Ragnar risks everything to save her. Now they are stranded with only each other for company. Suddenly every longing, every look, every touch is forbidden. Elena could tempt a saint—and sinner Ragnar knows he won’t be able to hold out for long!

What I Liked:

After reading To Sin With A Viking, I knew I could not wait to read the companion sequel novel! Yes, it featured Elena, and I was not a huge fan of her in the first book. BUT, it featured Elena, meaning that she would get her own happy ending! That was something I wanted to read.

Ragnar Olafsson has been in love with his best friend's wife since the three of them were kids, and no one was promised to each other yet. But he has never acted on his feelings or desires, nor will he ever do so, while Styr and Elena are married. Elena has always cared for Ragnar as a friend, as she has seen him through his worst as a young boy and young man, especially with the unique death of his father.

This book parallels with book one. Meaning, the events of book one overlap with the events of book two.
