Sent as the Viking’s Bride
She’s the wife he doesn’t want…
…and the woman he needs!
Desperate to escape her murderous brother-in-law and protect her young sister, Ragnhild agrees to marry an unknown warrior, and arrives penniless on his remote island. Only, Gunnar Olafson’s belief in love died with his family—he does not want a bride! But as yuletide approaches, Ragnhild transforms his isolated existence. Can she melt her Viking warrior’s frozen heart?
I’ve been waiting to read Sent as the Viking’s Bride by Michelle Styles since I first saw the cover reveal. This is actually the first Viking story I have read and I must say it was everything I hoped it to be and more.
Who doesn’t love a brooding and handsome Viking? Especially when he’s adamant about not wanting a wife! Gunnar Olafson was a great hero once you get past the mask he portrays. He’s proud, kind, loyal and has a soft heart, especially towards Ragnhild’s younger sister Svana.
Ragnhild was a wonderful heroine and I liked her from the very beginning. She’s been through a lot physically and mentally but yet she’s a fighter. She’s strong and willing to do anything to protect her younger sister. Yet she has a vulnerability about her when it comes to her looks and how remarkable she really is.
Since this was my first Viking story, I wasn’t really sure what to expect. I loved how detailed Ms. Styles writing is and I could easily imagine being in that time period. This was a beautifully written story set at Christmas time with suspense, intrigue and a romance between two people who truly deserved a HEA! Ms. Styles also included several memorable secondary characters that I wouldn’t mind reading about in the future! I loved Ragnhild & Gunnar’s story and l will definitely be reading more Viking stories in the future! Highly recommend!
