Every now and then I love a good Viking Romance. Not fantasy, not paranormal, just straight up historical romance from the time of the raiding Norse warriors. There’s nothing like a Viking raid and a strapping tall warrior to get your blood boiling, right? Well, of course, it must be well written and we want a strong heroine to make it difficult for him. And, a little history thrown in doesn’t hurt either. Well, if you like ‘em, I have a list of those I’ve rated 5 and 4 stars just for you.

Dream of Me, Believe in Me and Come Back to Me, trilogy by Josie Litton
Dawnfire by Lynn Erickson
Edin’s Embrace by Nadine Crenshaw
Fires of Winter, Hearts Aflame and Surrender My Love, trilogy by Johanna Lindsey
Golden Surrender, The Viking’s Woman and Lord of the Wolves, trilogy by Heather Graham
Lord of Hawkfell Island by Catherine Coulter
Maidensong by Diana Groe
Northward the Heart by Maureen Kurr
• Raeliksen, Mac Liam and The Temperate Warrior by Renee Vincent
Season of the Sun by Catherine Coulter
Tara’s Song by Barbara Ferry Johnson
The Enchantment (first published as My Warrior’s Heart) by Betina Krahn
The Pagan’s Prize by Miriam Minger
The Viking’s Defiant Bride by Joanna Fulford
Twin Passions by Miriam Minger
Viking Captive by Emma Merritt
Viking Gold by Nadine Crenshaw
Viking Passion by Flora Speer
Viking Rose by Ashland Price

  1. Thank you Regan! I am so honored to be on this list and among so many wonderful authors. This is quite humbling, indeed.

    I appreciate that you took the time to read my books. Yours are next on my list! Cannot wait!

    1. Thanks, Renee. I'm just glad you are writing Viking romances--and such good ones, too!

  2. I've read Lindsey, Graham, Coulter, Krahn, Minger, Speer and Price. Thank you for the other recommendations! I can't wait to pick up those books. Gotta love those Vikings. :)

    1. Leah, I'm so glad you might find some new ones to love on my list. Nadine Crenshaw's, and perhaps some of the others, will only come in paperback but they are worth it! You might also check out my Best Medieval Romances list!

  3. Here my list of top 10 favorite vikings!

    1. Dear Viking Princess,
      Thanks for commenting and giving me your favorites. The Wolf and the Dove, however, is not a Viking romance. While I love the story and it's on my Best Medieval Romances list, Wulfgar was not a Viking; he was a Norman knight of William the Conqueror. I do not like Sandra Hill for her fantasy, hence I did not read any of hers for the list. The one by Kate Hill and the one by Margaret Moore had only a few reviews and none elaborated, but I'll put them on my list to look at when next I update this one. Wolfskin is a fantasy. I don't do fantasy for the most part. I like straight historical romance. The rest are all on my list.

  4. Nadine Crenshaw's Viking Gold would probably end up at the top of my list for the worst viking romance...sorry. ******spoiler*****The heroine was unhappy until the last few pages of this book.

    1. I don't agree. Nadine Crenshaw's romances are incredible stories, all of them and I liked her Viking romances. They were not wallpaper historicals and dealt with what some women suffered at the hands of Vikings. It's my opinion, of course, but her books made my list. It may be you like a lighter fare.
