Spotted over at Dear Author today

The Viking Takes a Knight

And all she wants is refuge for herself and one unique orphan from a vicious Saxon commander who would harm the children and destry her honor. At her age, she no longer expects to find a husband, or even a lover, especially not the arrogant Lord of the Bees!

And what he longs for is peace and quiet. John of Hawk?s Lair is certainly not seeking a nagging wife and noisome children. As a knight in the king?s service, he spends his cherished time at home working on his beekeeping experiments. So when an irksome Viking princess comes barging into his castle with a horde of orphan children he does everything he can to get rid of her.

And find a sexual attraction that sparks between them despite their differences, one that soon turns into a fiery love that neither can den

Given Hill's penchant for bad jokes and puns, I'm surprised it's not called "The Viking Calls It A Knight."

Hill's books are like Epic Movie, Date Movie, Meet the Spartans, etc. You wonder WHY they're made, but obviously someone's paying to see them....

Well, I have always wondered what the knights did during their down-time; now I know, they dabbled around with bee keeping experiments.

Yep. Makes perfect sense. I will admit to being a little surprised that knights had mullets.
