4+ This book may have been written 20+ years ago, but it is a timeless classic. It's a well written fantasy Viking romance meant for pure enjoyment, and enjoy it I did! It has plenty of sizzle and adventure, a great hero/heroine, and a flirty sense of humor that I just love. Very high on the angst scale. The heroine becomes a prisoner to our hero, but soon it is he who is the one being held captive for her. This was great romance candy, IMO.
