Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Tenth-century England is beginning to feel a little old in Hill's latest Viking adventure, her first for Avon. This is a straight historical romance, not the time-travel scenario familiar from The Very Virile Viking and others in the Time of Your Life series, and without the inherent absurdity of eras colliding, the humorous anachronisms come across as forced and creaky. Breanne and her four sisters, Viking princesses all, have killed one sister's abusive husband, who inconveniently had strong ties to the misogynistic King Edgar. Their very distant cousin-by-marriage, Caedmon, has a stout castle well away from the scene of the crime, but he'll only allow them to stay if Breanne promises him 10 nights in her company—no holds barred. It's a familiar formula of war between the sexes and desire ruling all, and only Hill's fans are likely to enjoy the ride. (Feb.)

From Booklist

*Starred Review* Oswald, the sadistic Earl of Havenshire, makes a major mistake when he beats up his wife, Vana, just as her four sisters, all daughters of King Thorwald, come to visit. The enraged sisters give Oswald a fatal taste of his own medicine. At first, it’s easy to pretend that he’s away visiting his mistress, but as suspicions grow, the sisters flee. Caedmon is just home from an extended tour of duty for the king when five women show up on his doorstep, claiming to be distant relatives. The princesses soon bring order to his large, chaotic household. Then Caedmon discovers the truth and has to decide whether to turn in the sisters or help them escape. If he’s caught, he’ll likely be tortured and killed. If he refuses, he’ll lose stubborn Breanne, the apparent ringleader, who’s beginning to grow on him. With her clever dialogue, often bawdy situations, and great cast of characters, including a warrior woman, a proverb-spouting wise man/healer from the East, and a saucy cook, Hill has created another wickedly wonderful story. --Shelley Mosley

Okay, so if you're one of those historical readers that are very mindful of the speak, you will hate this completely. You'll read a lot of terms used in contemporary novels within the speak of the characters but that did not detract from the story. The hero is solid, the heroine is like-able and sensible. This is a comedy thru and thru, and that made it so enjoyable. There are some sexy scenes, so you get your fill. i would say an 7.5 on the sensuality side and it wasnt all roll your eyes corny. The supporting characters in the book are fabulous and the children had me laughing out loud at one point with their "Victory" shouts. It was great, fun, easy reading. I cant wait for another book by this author, hopefully on Wulf!

Princess Breanne of Stoneheim has a problem. Her sister's abusive husband has died of unnatural causes and Breanne and her other sisters know the Norman officials will not look kindly upon them for it, even though the killing was warranted. So they hide the body and run, going to the only place they think they will be safe, Larkspur. The situation is only supposed to be temporary, until they can return to their father, the King.

When they arrive, though, they find the keep in disarray. It is filthy and there are children running everywhere. The Viking sisters set out to put this right, and Breanne goes in search of the master of the keep.

Lord Caedmon has spent nine months in the king's service. When he returns home all he wants is to bathe, eat and sleep. Finding a beautiful Viking in his bedchamber shocks him, and he's not thrilled when she starts berating him for the horrible way his keep is run.

Even though he's distantly related, by marriage, to one of her sisters, he's not thrilled with the arrival of the Viking Princesses. When he discovers the real reason for their appearance he knows they can't stay; that is until he strikes a bargain with Breanne that brings her into his bed, and into his heart.

Viking In Love is classic Sandra Hill, written with lots of humor and wonderful characters. The interaction between Breanne and Caedmon is wonderful, as are their relationships with the secondary characters. Each one is unique, and work together to create a world that is entertaining and captivating.

I adored both Breanne and Caedmon and watching them try to outwit each other and fall in love at the same time was brilliant fun. Sandra Hill is one of my favorite authors, and Viking In Love is a wonderful example of why.

I can't believe I wasted a few hours to read this book. I kept having the internal conversation, just like the book was using; "what does the author think about the reader? stupid or naive?" These are really modern Vikings, not all like the Regency romance story I love to read. I gave up reading and vowed not to touch the similar books ever again.

Hilarious! Breanne and her sisters find themselves in some trouble so they hie away to Caedmon's keep to sit low. Breanne walks into a keep filled with dirt and smells and children running wild. Caedmon just returned from months of doing his duty to the king and all he wants is some peace and quiet before he settles into getting his keep back in hand. Little does he know that Breanne and her sisters will turn his world upside down. A wonderful adventure with some familiar characters from previous stories. Tyra is one of her sisters and her husband Adam the healer and his assistant Rashid make an appearance along with the sister's father, Thorvald. It was nice revisiting with them. The banter between Caedmon and Breanne had me howling as they found their way into each others hearts.

I gave this book 3 stars because it was entertaining and very funny. However, it was (to me) a rehash of her "Very Virile Viking" without the time travel. You've got the same gorgeous viking who has upteen kids running around the keep and he definitely isn't looking for a wife and more kids. I might have given it 4 stars if I had not kept thinking "I've read this before."

Warning: Do not drink or eat while reading this book lest you snort or spew the contents of your mouth as you laugh and hold your sides from sheer giggling abandon because, rest assured, this is the funniest romance ever.

I cannot begin to condense the sheer wonder of reading this book in a short review. The characters are well developed with personalities and quirks that appealed to my funny bone. On top of that, is the endearing bemusement and confusion of a fighting man when he meets a woman who is used to taking charge, and he feels love for the first time.

And the dialogue delivery! That style alone is worth mentioning. The internal one-liners before or after a character speaks had me in stitches. The truth of their thoughts being contradictory to what actually gets spoken reminded me of a comedy routine. Yet the doing so never spiraled into jokes for the sake of making a joke. Each and every utterance gives a reader insight into the man or woman highlighted in that scene. It provides depth and personality to the characters without need of POV head-hopping.

Caedmon is a fighting man who has a large heart. He can strategize a battle and swing a sword with skill. He just can't manage a household. Neither does he know how to handle a horde of kids. He has good intentions and means well, but he's a guy - clueless. He's delicious, don't get me wrong. I enjoyed his repartee with his friends, the loyalty he earned from his men means he is worthy of trust, but he is by no means perfect.

Breanne is a treat. She is strong where Caedmon is not so strong. She's clever and inquisitive. She's also a sensual volcano. Once she makes up her mind that Caedmon is going to be the man to save her sisters, she'll do anything to ensure it.
