    The Outlaw Viking


    Thoraine Jordan always knew she was different. Not only was her name derived from a tenth century viking, but she didn't resemble anyone else in her family. Her mother, Ruby, had told her many years earlier of a time travel experience and swore that Thoraine had been conceived during that century and that she had also given birth during that time period to two sons. But was that possible? Surely her mother had been mistaken. Did she really belong in this century, or of a time past? She needed to find answers. A pilgrimage to York with her mother brought her to the Jorvik Viking Centre. Built on the sight of the Coppergate archaelogical dig, and the grounds of the Battle of Brunanburg, the pilgrimage only confirmed what Ruby felt. Rain, a pacifist, abhorred the violence and war and could not understand why she was so drawn to the museum that housed the artifacts and remnants of that war. A bump on the head during a solo visit has her waking up in 937 A.D. in the midst of the Battle of Brunanburg. She could not understand how or why it happened, but she knows she was sent there on a mission. Then she sees Selik, a Norse God. Taking her hostage was his only solution, as she was nothing like he had ever seen and feared her the enemy. But, her sharp tongue and inability to be frightened by him only made him beleive she was not from his world. His crude and callous ways only fuel her drive to help him. His manner had not always been so harsh, but the death of his wife and child years earlier by the Saxons had left him uncaring and unfeeling. Until now. Her mission, she discovered was to save him. If not from the Saxons, then from himself. Her twentieth century logic and training as a doctor scares and amuses him and although he uses harsh words to keep his feelings for her at bay, she knows she cannot give up, for giving up would mean certain death for Selik. Her modern upbringing and his tenth century beliefs lend itself for some interesting and colorful scenes between the two. Betraying his trust, she pits herself against everything he fights for, for the sake of love. While the battles on the fields rage, so do their feelings for each other. Will their stubborness be overcome by the powerful force of a timeless love?Take a Norse God, a beautiful heroine, add a dash of time travel and you have the makings of a great novel by Sandra Hill. Ms. Hill not only takes us to the tenth century, but into the hearts of two characters you will remember long after you finish this enticing and riveting book. A sweeping, dramatic tale of timeless love.

    The Tarnished Lady


    When Lady Eadyth, the legendary Silver Jewel of Northumbria, strides into Ravenshire Castle to propose marriage, Eirik, Lord of Ravenshire, is appalled; but her reasons are compelling and Eirik is intrigued. This infuriatingly independent beekeeper heroine and handsome, but unpolished, tenth-century nobleman provide plenty of sparks and conflict in a passionate story that, despite cliches and a lack of trust on the part of both hero and heroine, will keep readers involved to the end. The novel won the Georgia Romance Writers' Maggie award for the best unpublished historical romance in 1993.

    The bewitched Viking


    THE BEWITCHED VIKING is the story of an outrageous Viking, Tykir Thorksson, and a presumed Saxon witch who put a kink in the King of Norway's male parts. Picture this: If a fierce Viking warrior beckons a fair maiden with his forefinger, does she succumb, or run for the castle, her sheep in hot pursuit? If a Saxon "witch" curses a Viking king, causing his manpart to take a right turn, should the Norseman capture the lady and risk falling under her erotic spell? Lady Alinor and Tykir Thorksson...the Saxon witch and the Viking troll. Even the gods are laughing.

    The blue Viking


    For Rurik the Viking, life has not been worth living since he left Maire of the Moors. It's not that he misses her fiery red tresses or kissable lips -- it's the embarrassing blue zigzag she put on his face after their one wild night. For a proud Viking, this blue streak is the last straw . . . He'll bring the witchling to heel, or die trying.

    My Fair Viking

    "Two years without a woman, and the first one that arouses me is wearing chain mail and scratching at her groin," Adam, the hero of this bizarre but humorous historical, muses upon meeting Princess Tyra of Stoneheim, a Viking warrior who wants nothing more than to be viewed as "one of the guys." Since the death of his sister, renowned Saxon healer Adam refuses to see new patients, but this doesn't sit well with Tyra, who has come seeking help for her comatose father, King Thorvald. The formidable young woman takes Adam by force to her Norse homeland, where he agrees to try trepanning Thorvald's skull in exchange for a night with Tyra. Tyra, meanwhile, has plans to renounce her birthright and join the Varangian Guard in Byzantium; she's a serious fighting machine who has little interest in marriage, but her four younger sisters are forbidden to marry until she has either wed or left the country. The verbal and physical sparring between Adam and Tyra is delightful, and Hill's (The Blue Viking) secondary characters including Adam's single-minded Arab friend, Tyra's scheming sisters and an accident-prone orphan boy provide comic relief. A singular blend of humor and romance, this breezy read will appeal to fans of Viking romances as well as mainstream historicals.

A major achievement from a new and refreshing talent! Ms. Hill takes the lead in time travel with a twist

    A Tale Of Two Vikings


    What do you get when you take two identical twin Vikings, pair them with some feisty ladies and throw in several large servings of absurdity and sex? The newest Viking romance from Hill (The Very Virile Viking, etc.). Although Hill is known for the fresh, funny, contemporary feel of her Viking romances, readers may overdose on the over-the-top antics she dishes up here. Exiled from their father's estate for their immature ways, Toste and Vagn Ivarsson have joined a band of warring Norsemen in Saxon lands. Just when they decide it's time to grow up and return to their country, a terrible battle finds them separated, each thinking the other dead. The lusty Vikings rebound quickly and soon find themselves chasing after the most unlikely women. Esme, Toste's shapely nurse/novice nun, heats his blood. Vagn, meanwhile, pursues hot-tempered Helga the Homely, the daughter of his Viking rescuer. Vagn lures her into bed many times over, despite her desire to be an independent woman, while Esme and Toste take turns tying each other up and having their way with each other. Each page is bawdier than the next, but Hill doesn't grant her characters much in the way of intelligence. Still, it's hard not to be happy for the "lackwit" Viking twins when they're finally reunited.
