Rating: 4 Cups
Ingrith Sigrundottir may be a Viking princess, but she does not act high and mighty, preferring to care for the orphaned children at Rainstead. When the loathsome Loncaster badgers her about turning over the illegitimate son of the King, she flees, taking eight of the orphans with her.
John of Hawk’s Lair’s biggest wish is to be left in peace so he can try to find the healing powers of honey. But his solace is soon shattered when Ingrith and her eight orphans come stomping into his home, the children disturbing his quiet and Ingrith stirring his passion.
Being thirty-one and unmarried due to her plain-speaking, Ingrith is unused to men showing desire for her the way John does. But once she realizes how much she wants him, she goes out of her way to seduce him, never expecting to find herself with a broken heart. For he has sworn he will never marry as his seed is tainted from his father’s insane blood. Though John has vowed to never fall in love, fate has decreed a far different story that will have him realizing just how he feels about the princess, a feeling that may be too late to act upon.
I love how Ms. Hill brings humor into her stories, enriching the tale and allowing the reader the pure pleasure of reading. The Viking Takes a Knight is a story that encompasses many different characters, both new and old, and will have fans glad to have picked up this novel. The way Ingrith and John struggle with their passion, feelings, and danger bring added elements to this sexy book. There is always something different about the characters in this author’s books that show how quirky and zany they can be, but somehow she makes it fit. Whether you are a longtime fan or a first time reader, this is a novel that is a definite keeper.
