Viking warrior Rurik Sigurdson, a Varangian (mercenary) on a mission for Grand Prince Yaroslav, ruler of Rus land (Russia), plans to to spy on the armies of Yaroslav's enemy--his younger brother, Prince Mstislav. In the process, Rurik unknowingly captures Princess Zora, Mstislav's much loved bastard daughter. Rurik believes she is the concubine of another man who he can use to gain intelligence. Zora has temporary amnesia that puts her in a dazed state most of the time. In a harebrained plan to find out who her lover is, Rurik makes love to the dazed woman only to realize she is a virgin (really it's rape since she couldn't knowingly consent). Zora wants to escape to return to her father and her betrothed, but Yaroslav (her uncle) forces her to wed Rurik.
I loved Zora. She was feisty and courageous and took no guff from Rurik. That is, until the marriage, after which she crumbled whenever Rurik touched her. Rurik was a reasonable man and a strong leader of his people, though he treated woman as mere comforts (until Zora). He kept 6 concubines who had given him 5 children. Into this comes innocent Zora. There were some improbable moments (like when his concubines were fine with being married off to Rurik's men), but it is well written, fast paced and held my interest.
Her other Viking novel is TWIN PASSIONS, which I plan to read.

Such a wonderfully exciting story of a Princess named Zora. On her way to wed her bethrothed, only to be betrayed by her half sister. Zora's crimes no other than being her fathers daughter, born of the women he loved. My heart was in my mouth many times. Zora was taken to a slave trader, with instructions to be rid of her. Not setling for what her sister has planned she tries to escape only to end up catching the attention of a beast of man, who has no scruples about raping a women. Zora tries to fight him and runs, the beast on her heels, who will help her, any? she runs smack into Lord Rurik, something about her, her beauty perhaps, but his interest is pricked and he not only saves her, but takes her as his captive, realising she maybe of some worth to use as a pawn to thwart his enemy who turns out to be her father. That may of been Lord Rurik's intention but perhaps the Gods deem otherwise.
This is a tail of twist n turns, and kept me hooked, how I loved Zora's antics and plots, they had me laughing at times. I am sure you will enjoy this story too.
