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 wasn't sure the direction this story was going to take, so I was a little puzzled in the beginning, and then when I realized where it was going and put the pieces together, I was all in and couldn't wait to read more!
The story is somewhat brutal and harsh in nature at the beginning, but appropriate for the time period and the cultures that are referenced, and as it moves forward the reader can sense the warm, sweet and tender that is to come. I love stories that involve people of different ethnicity, and especially when enemies become lovers.
There is strong, compassionate heroine in Adèle, she's torn between her sense of duty and the intense feelings that are stirring for her sworn enemy. Valdrik has a reputation that puts fear into his enemies on the battlefield, but when he meets his capture, he's stunned by her beauty and bravery, and falls for the woman that could be the beginning of his end. Valdrik shows Adèle a side of him that will defy everything she's heard about this brutal Viking. The harder she fights the attraction, the closer it pulls her into his arms and bed!! SWOON!
This author never lacks for details in her stories, and it's evident again that she's done her research. The foundation for the history in that time period and setting is in place, and then the magic and splendor begin when the author introduces us to charming characters and weaves a fascinating tale that captures reader's imaginations.
Why not a full 5 stars? There is a brief period in the story where a separation takes place and I felt the story lost some of its momentum. However, I understood the situation as it related to the overall plot, and that this is a novella where there is a limit to word and page count. Taking that into consideration, I still felt the author was able to give the reader a complete story which I truly enjoyed. This included an satisfying, sweet epilogue that segues into the next book and will have readers wondering what is to become of the brothers.
I am a huge fan of Victoria Vane's and love that as of recent she's delved into contemporary romance, but when she takes readers back in time her writing takes on an epic quality and nothing can quite compare! And now with the knowledge that Breton Wolfe is the stepping stone of what is to become a series...well I'm giddy with glee!
I recommend this book to readers who enjoy historical romance, Vikings, enemies-to-lovers themes, and anyone who enjoys exceptional writing and brilliant storytelling!
