Nly charms but the ruthless prince never expected her musky feminine scent to intoxicate him her full provocative curves to drive him wild Alaric had thought only of making the wench from across the ocean his lowly bedchamber slave he'd never accept that now she was mistress of his heart his treasured beloved SEA JEWELle. I wish contemporary historical romances had a sense of adventure like these old bodice rippers I like when characters are put through the ringer before they get their happily ever after and there was plenty of danger in this book bloody battles near sacrifice by a pagan cult a desperate trek through the wilderness with a pair of infants to name a few It really makes the ballroom gossip and society scandals of contemporary Regency romances seem so drollThere were a number of maddening clichés in this book We have a rapist alpha hero who's super swoll a feisty heroine who freuently plants her feet with her hands on her hips and shouts nay and a scheming rival female painted in the worst possible light The prose is very purple and the love scenes are especially cheesy However it's so full of rich historical detail about the Vikings and the Saxons that I was able to overlook those flaws for the sake of the story I hated Alaric most of the time I just couldn't see the appeal but in the end I admired Freya I just wish she hadn't converted to Christianity for the sake of a man Let pagan Vikings be pagan Vikings I sayI did think it was slightly longer than necessary I skimmed the last 50 pages and I could have done without the babynapping but I was pleased to see Ordway die in a fire
