Fires of Winter - Viking Haardrad Family, Bk 1 Author:Johanna Lindsey The Viking invaders came from across an icy sea, taking lady Brenna as their captive. But the dauntless Celtic beauty swears that no barbarian will ever be her master -- not even the handsome and powerful brute Garrick Haardrad. The son of a ruthless Viking cheiftan, Garrick is accustomed to getting his way, as he claims his exquisite "priz... more »e" with a primative abandon that leaves Brenna breathless. Yet it is Garrick's gentle soul that undoes the lady's resolve. For even as she plots the vengeance she vowed, Brenna cannot ignore the wonder of his kisses -- or douse the flames of a newly lit passion that blazes like starfire through the cold Nordic nights.

A very good story indeed! I have to say I do enjoy reading viking stories and all that they intail but one thing that has always bugged me about the captives (or females in general in all romances) most don't seem to have a backbone- save it to say this chick does! And she shows everyone from the start just how capable she is!
I say it's a great read! You guys should check it out!
I have mixed feelings about this book! It may reflect somewhat the romance style at the time it was written or more likely what would really be true for the historical period it was written. as said, to the conqueror goes the spoils, that is all too true here. I thought there was ALOT of rape and forced sex, as well as sex without any sensitivity. It is hard to understand that could be a basis for real romance or love, and the book was more of a disappointment to me. it didn't seem 'real' although there is that psychological thing about captives falling in love with their captors possibility.as a romance it didn't work for me, but it was pretty well written and there were certainly interesting aspects to the story.
