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 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, although there are Norsemen still around beyond that. It was 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!

    Bewitched Viking Sandra Hill - the one that got me hooked on historical Romance made this list!

    1. It did, Terry, but many of hers won't make the "to read" list for me as they are fantasies. She gave me the short list of those that are not: The Tarnished Lady, The Bewitched Viking, The Blue Viking, A Tale of Two Vikings, Viking in Love, The Viking Takes a Knight and The Norse King's Daughter.
