This book was very hard to get into, but once I got about half way through I couldn't put it down!
I felt there was too much of the author trying to school me on the history of the time. It would take me away from the story.
from the back of the book \"From the golden pleasure domes of Constantinople to the barbaric pomp of Malcolm of Scotland\'s court, this is the magical tale of ravishingly beautiful mairin of Aelfleah, called Enchantress by the three men who loved her: Basil, Prince of Byzantium, who taught her passion\'s tender secrets...Josselin de Combourg, gallant knight of William the Conqueror...and Eric Longsword, the Viking whose tragic love for Mairin would never be fulfilled. And in their wild world gone mad with savage war, only love could triumph over all!
Bertrice Small is one of my favorite romance authors and although I did enjoy this book I will say that it was a bit heavy on the details. She almost lost me a few times because of the overly zelous descriptions but she always managed to bring me back though.
