PLAYING WITH FIRE!

Caragh Ó Brannon defended herself bravely when the enemy landed—only, now she finds herself alone with one very angry Viking….

Styr Hardrata sailed to Ireland intending to trade, never expecting to find himself held captive in chains by a beautiful Irish maiden.

The fiercely handsome warrior both terrifies and allures Caragh, but he is forbidden territory. He is the enemy…and he is married. Yet Styr harbors a secret that just might set them both free….

Forbidden Vikings

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Viking Romance! July 18, 2013
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Very few romances seem to break the mold of the standard "hero meets heroine and they reluctantly fall in love." But this one does in an unexpected way. Viking warrior Styr Hardrata arrives on the shores of Ireland along with his wife, Elena, but is ambushed. Taken captive and separated from his wife, he's forced to depend on Caragh, the Irish woman who'd captured him. Intrigued by Caragh's kindness and determination, he grows to care for her, and when given the opportunity to leave her to starve on the barren Irish island, he chooses to aid her instead. Together Styr and Caragh work together to rescue Elena as they confront their intense passion for each other.

To Sin With a Viking was the first Viking story I've read in a number of years, and it didn't disappoint. After I began reading, I found that Ms. Willingham's writing even exceeded my expectations with a hero and heroine I grew to care about. I loved the depth of the Styr's character, watching how he struggled to rescue his wife and fought his attraction to Caragh. I never felt awkward for his emotions, because this story was about so much more than lust. Styr tried very hard to save his marriage. His relationship problems with his spouse were poignant and just as meaningful then as they would be for a modern couple today. I liked the author's well-executed exploration of this conflict, and I expect we'll be seeing more stories like this in the future. --Sandra Jones

5.0 out of 5 stars To Sin with a Viking July 16, 2013
By Nicole
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I love Michelle Willingham's books and I was a little skeptical about this one because the hero is already married, but not to the heroine of this book. Of course I shouldn't have worried because the way she written the story had me rooting for Caragh and Styr to find their happily ever after. I can see the struggle for Styr has he wants to honor his vows to his wife, but the desire that tugs at him whenever Caragh is near is getting stronger and stronger. Then poor Caragh has not had an easy life and she finally finds a man that makes her heart a flutter, but he's already taken. I really enjoyed the journey for these two.

5.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 Brilliant stars! July 25, 2013
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Oh my! Where do I begin??

I enjoyed this book very much! Michelle Willingham captured my attention and held it until the last page.

I love reading Viking romances. I don't think enough authors venture out and write about them but more should. I'm no stranger reading Viking romances and so I devoured this one. Devoured. It. So, how does To Sin With a Viking stack up to others I've read? This has to be one of my favorite Viking romances (so far).

What makes it stand out? The hero is married to another.

Styr, the yummy hero, is married to Elena. While they wanted to make the five year marriage work, they've really grown apart. Styr decides to travel to Ireland with Elena to find a fresh start and to save their marriage. Upon reaching the shore, Styr is captured and Elena is kidnapped and took out to sea.

Styr is Caragh O'Brannon's prisoner. Her brothers have left her alone and she's slowly starving to death. She intrigues Styr more than he cares to admit and yet he remains faithful to his wife (physically... emotional unfaithfulness is another story).

His deep voice was a breath of heat upon her skin. "From the moment I saw you, Caragh, you captured me."

Styr is a fiercely handsome warrior. I liked him immediately. He's went without love his entire life and he finds by the end of the book. This story is so unlike any romance I've read lately and it doesn't disappoint.

Caragh is a strong willed heroine. While I wanted to not like her, I found myself loving her personality. She's a tiny slip of a woman that makes the rough and tough Viking fall hard.

"Every day I've spent with you is a betrayal of her." The words were like a blade twisted inside her, wounding her heart.

5.0 out of 5 stars To Sin With a Viking - A beautiful tale July 23, 2013
By Maria
Format:Kindle Edition
This was such a beautiful story. Aside from the fast-paced plot and thrilling action scenes, it was a heart-wrenching tale of soul mates who have too many reasons to be apart.

"He wished for a moment that another life could be his."

Don't we all have those moments in our lives when the timing or the circumstances seem to be working against our greater happiness? I sympathized with the heroine Caragh who is attracted to a man she can never have and there were times when I wanted to just slap some sense into the Viking, Styr so he would choose happiness over honor. This is a must-read.

What I Liked:

I knew as soon as I read the synopsis of this book that it would be something that I would potentially enjoy. I don't read a lot of Viking-history books. Actually, I don't think I've read any! But, it's historical fiction, and I love historical fiction (especially historical romance), so I knew I had to give this one a try.

Ms. Willingham certainly knows her Viking history! I admit, I have not read a ton of Viking-history books, BUT, I do have a bit of knowledge of the Vikings from studies in school. I think Ms. Willingham did her research well, as I found the historical aspects of this book very authentic. I watch for anachronisms in every historical fiction book I read, and I didn't find any glaringly obvious ones in this book.

The story of this book is pretty simple.
