When Elli Thorson comes home to find a big, buff Viking in the living room of her Sacramento apartment, she's shocked. Hauk FitzWyborn was sent to Sacramento by Elli's father, King Osrik of Gullandria, to bring Elli back to Gullandria by whatever means necessary. Elli and her two sisters were brought to California as infants by their mother while Elli's two brothers were left in Gullandria with their father. The girls have had no contact with their father since they were infants. Both of Elli's brothers have died so her father wants one of his daughters to return to their homeland and marry the man who will be the next king.
Hauk is prepared to kidnap Elli and force her back to their homeland but Elli convinces him to contact her father and let her talk with him. After talking with her father, Elli agrees to go willing to Gullandria after she ties up some lose ends. The King instructs Hauk to keep Elli in his sight at all times so she cannot change her mind and run off. The next four days are torture for Elli and Hauk as they spend almost every minute together fighting their growing attraction to each other.
This book was great. Elli and Hauk were meant to be together and you really routed for them to overcome the class prejudice they faced and end up together. Hauk was one of the best romantic heroes I've read in a long time. I cannot wait for Liv and Brit's stories.

Delighful book!! Ms Rimmer creates the whole enchilada this time--a country, a royal family, even social mores of that country and uses Norse Tales, too!! King Orski wants his daughter to come home to Gullandria for a visit only he says but she and her triplet sisters have been raised by their mother in CA since early childhood. The King sends his Viking Warrior Hauk to bring his-easiest-to-get-along-with daughter Elli, who's a kindergarten teacher, but she teaches the King some lessons on having to wait for her to come in her own time and she uses that time well. Hauk, with all his gorgeous tattoos, also has some lessons for Elli while having to wait for her-he teaches her about their homeland, his great love of it and ends up loving her too. This is the first of the Viking Brides trilogy in Aug '03 PRINCE AND FUTURE..DAD? and Oct '03 MARRIAGE MEDALLION will be released--I'm eagerly awaiting Liv and Brit's stories

I really liked this book, but the climax of the book seemed rushed and uneventful. Overall it was a good story and I will most likely read it again.
