Synopsis: Lovely and dauntless, abducted by invaders from across an icy sea, Lady Breena vowed vengeance. She warned that no Viking brute would be her master and no barbarian would enslave her noble Celtic heart, but then came Garrick Haardra, the proud and powerful son of a ruthless Viking Chieftain.
Review: Fires Of Winter features vikings, action, and romance. Lady Breena has spent her entire life working more as the son her father saw her to be rather than the feminine female she loathed to be. Yet these are hard times in a harsh, unforgiving time period. Breena is forced onto a foreign island with brutish strangers where she finds her entire life turned upside down.
Old promises and remembered hatred swirls between enemies and slaves. Breena refuses to do as her master orders her. A man who’s sworn off women on account that he believes they’re un-trustworthy. This unlikely match is forced together by powers beyond their control. Not only do they bicker non-stop, but they are both equally spiteful and arrogant. Despite their mutual annoyance, there is a spark of desire they try to suppress at every turn. Can the two finally tear down walls long erected? Or will their individual hatred erupt into chaos like nothing they have seen before?
If you enjoy a bit of history inter-woven with romance and a few passionate encounters, then don’t waste any time in picking up this witty, often hilarious, action-packed book.
