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 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!

Identical twin sisters Gwendolyn and Anora are complete opposites, but fierce friends nonetheless. Gwendolyn is the tomboy of the duo - even going so far as to cut her hair short and wear men's clothing, while Anora exudes a very feminine nature. As the eldest by minutes, Anora has been placed in an arranged marriage, but thankfully, it turned out to be a love match anyways. The night before her wedding, the two sneak out unchaperoned for one last sisterly moment of bonding, when the unthinkable happens and they are kidnapped by two wandering Vikings. They believe Gwendolyn to be male (in men's clothing and short hair) and take the duo back to their ship in repair, even though it is expressly forbidden by the captain, Hakon. From here on out, the story is about Hakon and his interaction with the 'brother' Garric and sister Anora. Gwendolyn continues her identity as Garric in hopes to keep Anora's virtue intact for her betrothed.

Well, the one thing that attracted me to the story was the outline. As most of these stories go, I thought I could have predicted what happened, but unfortunately, I think my assumption was probably a better story than this. I found the story to be trite, shallow, messy, and incredibly misogynistic. I know well that most romance stories have a bit of misogyny in them, but this one was pretty thick with it.

Let me start with the storytelling. It's messy in that it is constantly vacillating point of views. One paragraph is through Gwendolyn's eyes, the next is Hakon, and then the next one is some chambermaid in the same room giving her $0.02. So it goes on. It took me many chapters to get used to it. And yes, I did read the whole thing (mainly in hopes to see a redeeming quality in the couple).
And the descriptions, whoa.

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 have always been a big fan of medieval romance. This one falls right there with other classics by Hannah Howell and Julie Garwood. The only thing that kept me from rating it higher was because I found it unbelievable that one of the twins could be mistaken for a boy. Throughout the book the twins are described as having unequal beauty, feminine, fragile, delicate... (I could go on and on) Also, no one could ever tell when Anora and Gwendolyn switched places b/c their looks were so identical. And one of them was mistaken for a boy?? Would have been more believable it their appearance had been played down a bit.
