Best Viking Romances!



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 done and we want a strong heroine to give the guy a hard time. And a little history thrown in doesn’t hurt either. If you like ‘em, here’s a list of those I’ve rated 4 and 5 stars!

·       Blind Allegiance and Blind Mercy by Violetta Rand
·       Dawnfire by Lynn Erickson
·       Dream of Me, Believe in Me and Come Back to Me, trilogy by Josie Litton
·       Edin’s Embrace by Nadine Crenshaw
·       Fires of Winter, Hearts Aflame and Surrender My Love, trilogy by Johanna Lindsey
·       Forbidden Passion by Theresa Scott
·       Golden Surrender, The Viking’s Woman and Lord of the Wolves, trilogy by Heather Graham
·       Season of the Sun, Lord of Hawkfell Island and Lord of Raven’s Peak by Catherine Coulter
·       Maidensong by Diana Groe
·       Norse Jewel by Gina Conkle
·       Northward the Heart by Maureen Kurr
·       Odin’s Shadow by Erin Riley
·       Raeliksen, Mac Liam and The Temperate Warrior by Renee Vincent
·       Sea Jewel by Penelope Neri
·       Tara’s Song by Barbara Ferry Johnson
·       The Bewitched Viking by Sandra Hill
·       The Deepening Night by Jayne Castel (7th century Britain, but no Vikings)
·       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
·       The Viking’s Sacrifice by Julia Knight
·       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
·       Viking Sword: The Stranded One by Mairi Norris

Let me know if I’ve missed one you love! I know there are good ones out there and I am always looking for a great Viking romance.

  1. What a terrific list! I especially agree Mairi Norris's delightful Viking Sword! And with Diana Groe's Maidensong (and the other two of that Viking trilogy.) Diana writes terrific Regencies now as Mia Marlowe (she's a member of my local writer's group. How lucky is that!)

    I'd completely forgotten about Josie Litton's--they were terrific, as were Bettina Krahn's. I've got to re-read these.

    As for the others I need to get reading :) Thanks for posting this wonderful list.

    1. So glad you like the list, Barbara. I've read the second in Groe's trilogy, Erinsong, but it did not make the list. I rarely review Regencies unless they are the deep ones (hard to find these days). Just not into the light ones.
