Lydia and Dave Denton had adapted to their military
lifestyle. Dave was often gone, but they treasured their
time together with passionate enthusiasm. Their only real
disagreement was about having a baby. Lydia wanted one, but
Dave said he was worried about it making him more
distracted while in the war zone.
Three weeks after Dave left on his last mission, Lydia
watched his casket being lowered into the ground. Just a
few months later, she learned she was pregnant and that
forced her to learn to live without Dave.
Thorfinn Haraldsson is an 11th-century Viking and proud of
his arrogant Viking attitude. But when he time-travels to
the modern world, he finds women aren't so appreciative of
his viewpoint. In fact, he's having a damned difficult time
fitting in with these women -- until he meets Lydia Denton.
But whatever he feels for her must be suppressed in favor
of finding the son his Viking wife stole from him.
It's been five years since her husband's death, and Lydia
still mourns Dave. But when she meets Finn and he looks so
much like Dave, and even seems to know things about her and
to connect with her son, she begins to open back up to the
world of love.
Ms. Hill's time-traveling Viking series is just good old-
fashioned fun. It's amazing how she can take the same basic
time-travel story and wind it up into excellent, very
different books. This one, in particular, was hotly
passionate. You'll love the chemistry between Finn and
Lydia. Though, I've got to admit, I kept mourning the cool
relationship she had with Dave, even though we only got a
very brief glimpse of that.
Searching for his little boy, 11th century Viking Thorfinn
lands in modern times, where he stumbles upon a dead
ringer for his cheating ex-wife. Single mom Lydia Denton
mourns the loss of her SEAL husband. Then she meets a man
who resembles him. Despite Thorfinnâ€™s strange accusations,
Lydia finds it impossible to ignore the chemistry between
them. And as she gets to know this handsome Viking, she
canâ€™t help but wonder whether two souls, separated by
time, have found their way back together.
