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 Northmen. The Viking Age was that part of the medieval period from the end of the 8th century to the middle of the 11th century. An age of valiant and sometimes ruthless warriors and raiders.

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 some grief. 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!

  1. what a great list you have!! I really loved Fires of Winter and Golden Surrender. As well as Sandra Lake.

    1. Thanks so much LOR. If you have one to recommend to me, I'm all ears!

    2. LOR, I see Lake has two out. I'll read her first for next January!

  2. Thanks for this list, Regan. I just finished reviewing all three parts of Erin Riley's trilogy and I've begun Mairi Norris' Viking Sword. I believe I like the same books you do. :-)

    1. And I am blessed to have you as a reader of mine!

  3. This looks interesting as for me. I read some historical romance books and to say truth, that's not mine. Though I do love TV shows about Vikings, so I think I need to give a chance to some of the books from this list. Thanks for posting it!
