Editorial Reviews

From the Author

My step-grandfather's name was Olaf. Now, before you start picturing a cuddly snowman with a carrot nose, picture instead a man of medium height, light brown hair, and pale eyes--pale blind eyes. Grandpa began going blind in his early twenties. By the time I came along, he lived completely in the dark.

Not that blindness ever stopped him. He rarely walked with a cane. He climbed tall ladders to re-shingle the roof, clean the gutters, or prune trees. But the thing I remember most about him was his keen mind and wicked-sharp sense of humor. His parents migrated from Norway, and he spoke the language and visited cousins back home. He built a workshop in the garage and set up a micro-brewery where he and his friends would gather, and laughter was everywhere.

When I was a child, I attributed my blonde hair and blue eyes to him, but sadly realized very early on that was impossible. Because of him, I never accepted the stereotypical view of Vikings as base, marauding warriors. They were artists, poets, farmers, traders, adventurers, and yes, fearsome warriors.

In this volume, I've collected stories written by some amazing writers who've captured the breadth of the Viking experience--settlers in a brave new world, raiders and traders who travelled from northern Europe to Africa and Byzantium in wooden boats, soldiers whose superior might made them feared and sought after. More, they gave me stories about the men who remained in their cold, rugged land and the strong women who matched their courage and will.

And I can well imagine my grandfather aboard one of those Viking ships, his face turned to the wind as it caught the sail and carried him to the edge of the known world. Despite the racy content, I think he'd be tickled about this book. So Grandpa, this one's for you.

I love Delilah Devlin's romance and I adore Vikings so this was a distinct pleasure to read. All of the stories are well written and edited. In particular, I loved Lizzie Ashworth's contribution. It was so much fun seeing the tables turned on the handsome Viking who gets ravished by an lady.

My star rating is based on the two stories that I’ve read so far.

How to Train Your Skjaldmaer by Delilah Devlin

Torvald was promised one of Hagar’s daughters a wife; one “so fair roses blushed in dismay” but what he got instead was one with a tall angular frame and ruddy complexion. Hagar had pulled a switch on him. It didn’t take Torvald long to realize he much preferred Solveig to her sister.

Solveig wasn’t meek and didn’t dress like a maiden but Torvald was intrigued by her. She was strong of body and will; qualities that would serve him well; a lady’s skills could be taught.

This is a short story but Delilah Devlin is adept at creating a complete picture with few words. Reading how Torvald and Solvi interact with each other is steamy and entertaining. I thoroughly enjoyed this story.

Enslaved by Elle James

Konrad and his soldiers have come to Ireland and conquered a village. He left Norway to get out from under his older brother’s leadership and find a new home. Brigid is the leader of the clan that Konrad has conquered; she would do anything to protect her people.

Konrad had Brigid gather the unwed women and announced his intention to take a wife. She offers herself to protect her younger sister from being chosen. She has a plan to drug him to get him to leave her land but things don’t quite work out the way she intended.

Their wedding night is nice and steamy; Konrad proves to be a considerate lover. This is a great short story!

I read somewhat less than a half of this book before I decided to return it. The title is misleading: there is no romance, only erotica, which in my opinion are not the same thing and ought to be distinguished. I have no generic objction against explicit sexual scenes and I expect this in a viking romance genre, just as captor/captive romance/erotica, but in this book most of the short stories I read have no real personal connection between the protagonists, only lust. Of the stories I read (from the beginning until midway in There for the Taking) I liked How to train your Skjaldmaer by Delilah Devlin the best, where the protagonists seemed to genuinely like each other and fit together well, but I was a little disturbed by the overly athletic woman idea (I mean, what young woman, even a warrior woman, could possibly take on a bull as she bragged?).
The reason I decided to stop reading was the excessive voyeurism and the prospect of menage erotica in There for the Taking. I definitely find menage erotica offensive and wish to be warned about its occurrence before I buy a book. This is why I returned it.

I was provided a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. This collection of Viking novellas was very steamy, very sexy and very HOT! Did I say HOT? This is not my normal reading genre but I found that I enjoyed the different countries represented, from Ireland to Iceland, Norway and Moorish Spain as well as these strong, virile men and the equally strong and sexy women who fall in lust and in love with them. I found myself wishing that the stories were full novels because they were so rich in detail and well written I would have loved to read more about the varied and enjoyable characters this collection includes. This collection is a wonderful way to stumble upon a new author in your favorite genre. If you love lusty Vikings and their equally lusty leading ladies, this is definitely the collection for you and I think you will enjoy it very much, as I did.
