Lt. Torolf Magnusson had followed his family into the
future, leaving the 11th-century Norselands behind, joining
the Navy SEALS and making a new life. But in minutes, he
makes a life-changing decision: He must return to the past,
if possible, and rid the Norselands of Steinolf, the madman
who is torturing people and destroying his homeland.
What Torolf doesn't expect is for his SEAL buddies to offer
to go with him. Of course, they just think he's a little
crazy and that they'll get a visit to Norway. There's no
such thing as time travel... Well, they're in for a rude
awakening. And an introduction to a life that is much more
challenging than the cushy one they have in America.
Hilda Berdottir is doing her best to keep the women at The
Sanctuary safe from Steinolf and his men. All 50 of the
women already had suffered at his hands -- mutilations,
rapes, the deaths of loved ones -- and now they have hidden
away and created a safe area. But the women, after five
years, are wanting babies, so they're requesting men. She's
not sure what to do and how to take care of their needs
without destroying the safety of their homes. Then a Viking
longship is shipwrecked right in front of their home and
the gods seem to have answered their prayers.
Thus begins a rather lighthearted look at a thoroughly
horrible time in history. Ms. Hill mixes the sobering
atrocities with the challenging (and unabashedly fun!)
courtship of modern men let loose among women who haven't
had sex for five years. Clearly, just from that last
sentence alone, you can see the possibilities in this book.
I've had a lot of fun with this continuing saga of the
Vikings brought forward in time. A great light read!
It takes nothing short of a miracle to catapult Lt. Torolf
Magnusson and his team of Navy SEALs back in time to
eleventh-century Norselands. First on the agenda: destroy
the evil villain who terrorized his ancestors and a nation.
A surrender so sweet
But when the sexy SEALs find they've landed in the middle
of a sanctuary--filled with women, well, Hoo-yah! Their
game plans are put on hold, much to the distress of Hilda,
the head of the sanctuary. At first resistant, she soon
succumbs to Torolf's passionate advances. Suddenly the
term "Special Forces" takes on a whole new meaning. But
with victory in sight for Torolf, Hilda must face the fact
that their love may not survive the test of time...
