Once again, the magnificent author wowed me with her versatility whether it's historical or contemporary romance.
There are some scenes here that others may not like but are true based on historical accounts. The Norsemen's way was to rape, raid, and pillage but Adéle was mistreated by her husband on their wedding night. Despite that, she held her head up high, even when she was humiliated repeatedly by the scattered bastards, she still has this regal bearing.
Vladrik wasn't who she expected. After all, her brother and father were killed by Norsemen so it automatically put him in league with his fellowmen. Guilty by association. Vladrik was challenged by Adéle's ferocity in all things.
Their wedding feast was somewhat of a turning point because both their guards were down and they were able to appreciate each other, that maybe things could work out after all.
There was a bit of a trial after they made love but we have a cliffhanger here which I'm looking forward to reading this year.
By: Victoria Vane
Adele of Vannes had her future mapped out for her from the day of her birth. The daughter of aristocracy and the granddaughter of a King, she was betrothed to Rudalt, the son of the King of Brittany. Their marriage was not idyllic or even enjoyable. When the Norse arrive, she knows of their brutal reputations, since both her father & a brother were killed in combat.
Valdrik Vargr, known as the Norse Wolfe, has become weary of raiding and the uncertainty of the life it offers. He wants to settle, take a wife and leave heirs to his name. After conquering Rudalt and Vannes, he knows it’s in his best interest to take a wife of royal blood and sire sons, so that they will have the top claim to the throne even after he dies.
I liked the premise of this novella, but I really felt like I was missing out on so much. Everything is on such an accelerated time table, that there was no room for character development, their developing relationship or even the drama. This novella felt like it was just the outline for a full novel, the bare bones. We’re missing the descriptives, the feelings, the emotions, etc. It would have been so much better if it had been longer.
There will be 2 other novellas and will be about Valdrik’s half-brothers.

I was so excited when I learned that Victoria Vane was releasing another historical romance. This was a must read for me because Victoria happens to be one of my favorite authors. I have say that I thoroughly enjoyed this novella.
Adele Vannes was trapped in a loveless marriage. Her husband was a mean and dishonorable man who humiliated her time and time again.
Valdrik Vargr, The Norse Wolf was sent to Brittany to claim the Kingdom. In order to do that, he must defeat Adele’s husband and then wed her.
At first Adele wants nothing to do with this fierce Viking warrior. She makes plans to render Valdrik and his army useless by drugging the wine that they will partake in during their wedding celebration. But she soon learns that Valdrik is a not what she thought him to be. He has treated her kindly and was so very gentle and tender towards her feelings. She very much enjoyed his kisses and actually found herself craving more.
The love/sex scene had some very good steam added to it. As always Victoria Vane never disappoints me with the heat she adds into her books.
There were a few really good secondary characters added in so when the book was concluded I did a fist pump in the air when I saw that they too will get their own books.
My only complaint, I wish the book was longer.
Brenton Wolf was a really good start to a series that will be a must read for me.
Valerie a Viking is going to take over this did not go well with her at first., Is it possible that two different beliefs can come together and find true love. This is the first book in series will read those also. The book has steamy scenes so don't read if you want a clean book.
