IT TAKES MORE THAN A KINGDOM TO MEND A HEART…
As the daughter of the king who vanquished Vikings from Brittany, Gwened of Poher has a legacy to protect but doing her duty has left her in a loveless childless marriage. Aside from the artistry of her needlework, her life feels meaningless.
A hardened warrior, Bjorn Vargrsson was impervious to pain, until the tragic loss of his wife and son left a gaping wound that refuses to heal. With prayers and sacrifices unheeded by the gods, he lives an empty existence
I received this book from the author for an honest review.
As I read this book I Kept picturing the TV show Vikings because of the characters names and the whole Valhalla, Norsemen plus the raids…YES I Love it.
This book is about two broken and incomplete souls. Bjorn is lost without his wife and children. Gwened is lost because her Hugo, he betrothed, was killed in a Viking battle.
Gwened is forced in to a loveless marriage with Hugo’s younger brother and is basically just passing the time by. When she hears of the Viking raids she runs to her sister, she is book 2 of the series, to see if she can help aid them. She is stunned to hear her sister is married to one of the Vikings and WILLINGLY none the less!! GASP right!!
Gwened and Bjorns have a soft truce and begin to respect one another. When a night of passion soon turns into confusion, they are both left lost and lonely once again.
I loved the story but thought it might have been a little bit rushed toward the end of the story. I would have liked to see more interaction between Bjorn nd Gwened’s husband over what would become of the lands. But otherwise I loved the book and can’t wait for more!!
