Taken from Sandra’s website(book blurb):
Steven, a fierce Viking warrior is depressed over the “death” of his brother Thorfinn. Yep, even Vikings get the blues.
Rita can’t believe she’s been tossed back in time to the tenth century wearing a head-to-toe wetsuit and flippers with her face cammied up.
Steven can’t believe the gods have sent him a fish woman to ease his woes. Not a beautiful mermaid, but an ugly-as-death fish.
How dare the brute put her in a cage!
How dare the wench teach his people line dancing!
Love and laughter guaranteed in this trip down Memory Lane…uh Fjord.
NOTE: This book was previously titled EVEN VIKINGS GET THE BLUES.
I have always loved Sandra’s writing. And she didn’t let me down with DARK VIKING. The story is engaging, emotional, funny, and greatly written! I loved it. This is a time-travel and so great you’ll swear you are there with Rita. DARK VIKING is part of Ms. Hill’s Viking series, but can be read as a stand alone. I’d suggest you be prepared to laugh out loud, literally at moments, so please keep that in mind. You may find yourself getting teary-eyed as well, but when the final page is turned you’ll sigh and have a smile spliting your face. You’ll also find if you’ve never read Sandra Hill before that you MUST have all her backlist books. For those of us who have read her, this one was another “Keeper Shelf” read that just leaves us eager for the next release. With Sandra Hill I can guarantee you a great story!
