More About the Author

Miriam Minger's first novel Twin Passions was called "A fabulous debut!" by Romantic Times. Since then, Miriam has swept readers into her unforgettable romances with her strong, forceful heroes and fiery heroines. She is the winner of several Romantic Times Reviewer's Choice Awards--including Best Medieval Historical Romance of the Year for The Pagan's Prize--and a two-time RITA Award Finalist for A Hint of Rapture and Captive Rose.

Miriam Minger's contemporary novel Ripped Apart, "An absolute gem of a romantic suspense. Five Stars!" has won rave reviews from romance and thriller readers alike. Miriam is also happy to announce that her Little Mike and Maddie series of children's picture books about a lovable pair of dogs and their motorcycle adventures is available under her pen name, Miriam Aronson.

Bestselling author Miriam Minger says: It's been a wonderful experience to have all my novels published as eBooks, but the greatest thrill for me as a writer is when readers take the time to let me know they enjoyed one of my stories...

"I have read hundreds if not thousands of books in my lifetime and not once have I ever been moved to comment on one until now. This is without a doubt one of the best books I have ever read. I laughed. I cried. I remained at the edge of my seat devouring every single word you wove with this incredible story. I just wanted to let you know how deeply this story moved me and to thank you for creating it."

Wow. This one left me speechless...and grateful. I had done my job, which is to make you feel like you've dropped feet first into a world that captures your imagination and emotions so vividly you might be living and breathing the story. And that's one of the purest joys of reading, isn't it? I know it is for me...and it is my hope to continue to write books that make you feel the passion, live and breathe the adventure, laugh and cry and touch your heart.

Miriam Minger is a superb writer whose books reflect her intelligence, humor, and wit. She has an imagination which knows no bounds. Her men are charming, sexy, and controlling, but also conscientious and honorable. The women are intelligent, beautiful, and proud, as well as feisty and willful. The relationships are explosive and exciting(oooh boy), but still somehow realistic(at least in my mind;)). The antagonists are so loathsome and destructive that you never know if love can possibly survive, which always keeps me up way past my bedtime! Miriam has a real gift for describing the many geographical settings in her books and her knowledge of language and culture is quite impressive. I am always captivated from cover to cover.

I loved the twins Anora and Gwendolyn's relationship. They are so different, yet equally protective of each other, and strong in their respective ways. Dane Wulfgar is the ultimate handsome and powerful prince, and Hakon, the sexy viking.

Yes, please;)

I think this makes the 7th book by Minger that I'm completely happy with! I loved this story line. It's like two love stories combined into one. Twin sisters, one more feminine and girly, while the other a rough and tough tom boy. This book was a fun read. Minger writes so well, you can't wait to turn the page. I kept trying to predict what would happen next and I was always surprised! The characters are well defined and you actually get a good sense of their personalities, which I love. Minger pays attention to the details and it makes her characters come alive. I always wish after finishing one of Mingers books that it would have been longer, b/c I just don't want the story to end. I also prefer historical romances and Minger delivers here. Again her attention to detail really makes the story and its characters come to life. This is only the second "Viking" book that I have ever read and I'm really Lovin' it!!! Bravo!

Gwendolyn is definitely your typical headstrong, tomboy heroine - which definitely borders on the line between awesome and annoying. She has many redeeming qualities though, protective of her sister, hardworking, and determined. She also makes one of the ultimate sacrifices to save her twin Anora, which is a pro in my book.

One of the biggest annoyances in the story was the repeated mistake of leaving un-escorted. In fact, that's what got the twins in to this entire mess to begin with. But does Gwendolyn learn a lesson? NO. She does this again and again, and each time she puts their lives at stake.

Otherwise, the characters were interesting (loved Hakon!) and the author paints beautiful pictures with her descriptions. I really liked the details about the different cultures and their daily lives. Minger has definitely put in a lot of effort to this book, and it showed. The ending of the book was quite happy and everything works out perfectly. I was a bit irritated that the same villains came back. I also didn't like how secrets were revealed. I mean who narrates like that during their sleep?

Oh well. Good read, but glad it was free!

i stayed up late last night just to finish this book. i thought hakon was going to find out about the twins a lot earlier in the book but it didn't happen the way i thought it would. I really enjoyed this book. gwendolyn and anora are beautiful women that are complete opposites but their love for each other is obvious. gwendolyn is the strong one with the talents a son would've been taught and a bad temper. anora is more femamine, shy, and softspoken. together they find themselves in one scrape after another, starting with being kidnapped. **spoilers**it was hard for me to like hakon in the beginning because he took the twins as slaves. they were taken against their will and against his orders so i didn't understand why they would be held captive and it annoyed me that he practically pampered anora while gwen (aka garric) was put to work. i'm assuming the slave part was correct for the time period but i didn't agree with it. hakon wanted anora as his concubine and the people didn't understand why she didn't feel honored. i loved gwen's character. she is such a strong woman and did what was necessary to survive and protect her sister. i was however disappointed towards the end of the book when svein made a third attempt on their lives. i couldn't help but think why doesn't this guy just die already. i think the intention was to have something happen for hakon to realize he couldn't be without gwen but i think this could've been accomplished another way. my only other complaint would've been to have seen more of wulfgar. if i hadn't read the book description i would've thought this story was about anora and wulfgar after reading the first chapters. i loved them as a couple and wish i could've seen more of them together. overall i thought it was a good read and i will be reading more from this author.

Although this book has received rave reviews I just couldn't work through the writing style and stopped reading part way through the story. The author does have an interesting plot line and the settings are described well, however every few paragraphs the cliched, descriptive style stopped the reading flow for me. It's difficult to be involved in a story where everything is described in such a dramatic style. For example, a character was described with "bitter turmoil", "shaken to the very depths of her being" and "raged silently" all within 3 paragraphs of the opening chapter and before we get to know her character as a person.
