Anyone who has read a Sandra Hill book will know what to expect from this one. Anyone who has not read a Sandra Hill book needs to read this one. For humor with a hot romance and a tongue in cheek attitude nobody does it better than Hill.

Ian MacLean is a Navy SEAL, while on a mission to Iraq his team literally picks up a woman, who is thought to be the lover of a terrorist. This straight arrow, unstanding, by the book soldier is dumbfounded, confused and just plain maddened by the gorgeous female who simply wants to raise an army and lead them to recover her fortress which was taken over by a slimy underhanded Viking. Did I mention that was in 1013 A.D.?

Madrene Olgadottir has just escaped from 2 years of captivity in assorted harems. Having used a mystic spell she developed to save her self from being ravished. Now when she has escaped her latest owner and aquired a few of his jewels, all she needs is an army. An army like the one that has captured her. Madrene is known in the Viking world as a "shrew" of which she is proud. Never one to let one word do when 20 sound so much better and relieve so much more stress, she does not find this new world of magic very hospitable.

Getting to Bagdad tells her this is not where she wants to be. The only way to get her to the US is for someone (Ian) to marry her and get an annulment when they find out what she knows about the terrorist. As she knows nothing about this new world, she becomes very frustrated. OF course, Ian has some frustrations of his own. Not the least is how attracted he is to Maddie.

The relationship, steadily encouraged by Ian's SEAL team, is on a train headed for disaster. When the terrorists finally come to get Maddie, Ian finally settles his feelings for the shrewish wench. Is there such a thing as being too honest? Have a good time, read this book.

What the heck do you expect from Sandra Hill - anything less than excellence? Her characters have a lot of heart,
passion and depth. As usual, an awesome Viking/Seal adventure just waiting for you to buy it, take it home and treat
it right - read it!! But pay attention: this is a fantasy so don't expect reality; spend belief (such as "there is no
such thing as time travel") and just ENJOY the book. If you don't like fantasy, don't buy then review the book in a
negative; that's not fair. Warning: sex scenes are R.

As always, this series can be read out of order really didn't matter. (I also recommend her Cajun series for some funny
stories of hot alpha males. They are delicious stories. Yum!)

A laugh out loud book. Funny, sexy and the most entertaining book I've read in a long time. A Navy Seal meets up with a woman-warrier, time traveler from the 11th century and the fun never ends.
Characters wonderfully developed. Narrative inventive. And the dialogue will have you falling off the chair!!!!

I've enjoyed other Sandra Hill time travel books and decided to read the Viking II series. All 10 books in under 2 weeks.

I gave this book 4 stars.

This is the fifth book in the Viking II series, and I really enjoyed the story of Ian MacLean and Madrene Olgadottir: Machismo vs Feminism. There were several funny moments and it was good enough to keep me reading it til I finished it in one sitting. You'll enjoy it!

I like her books. Madrene Olgadottit comes from a time a Thousand years before Ian MacLean was born, and she has no idea she has landed in the furure. He's a Navy Seal with brains, guts and brawn on a mission.
