Breanne is a Viking princess. Since she is tall, red haired and flat chested, she thinks that men only want her for her dowry. She is determined to start her own woodworking business and vows to never marry.
Caedmon has been married twice unhappily and is the father of ten, though at least three of them really belong to someone else. He is looking forward to improving his small estate and not fighting for the ungrateful and loathsome King Edgar for a while.
The five daughters of King Thorwald of Stoneheim are in a bit of a pickle. Four of the sisters arrived at the fifth’s home to find her brute of a husband beating her. Of course the warrior’s daughters ended her ordeal and buried Oswald in an appropriate place, the privy. They need a place to hide and Larkspur, home of Caedmon, is the perfect place. Unfortunately, Caedmon does not think so, though the Princess Breanne and her tight braes are very distracting, and her sisters have improved his home in too many ways. He does not want to throw them out, but he also wants to keep his home and Oswald, not surprisingly, was the King’s friend.
This is a very funny story. The author puts a very modern spin on the tale without losing the atmosphere of the era. This makes it much easier for the average reader to follow. The characters are vividly quirky from the big breasted maids in the keep to the lecherous and greedy King Edgar, but the main characters are unforgettable. The dialogue is very witty, and the plot never palls. Ms. Hill also has a gift for writing exceptional love scenes, and I will never look at a candle the same way again.
