Ruby Jordan, a modern businesswoman, needs a miracle to save her longtime marriage. But she didn't expect to travel back in time to medieval Britain as a cure for her broken life.
Thork Haraldsson is a tenth century Jomsviking warrior embittered by his harsh life. What he doesn't need is a pesky woman claiming to be his wife...one thousand years in the future.
I really liked this book funny and sweet good for warm lazy summer reading
The book begins in 1994 when Ruby's husband Jack walks out of her. Depressed she picks up a self help tape her husband has left and begins to cry then as she is listening she finds herself transported back a thousand years to 994. She sees a Viking, Thork, who bears a stiking resemblence to her husband JAck. She finds herself accused of being a SPY. She tries to convince him she is his wife but he merely laughs at her attempts but there is definately an attraction between them.
As she survives in the life of a viking woman she finds life is not as she would have imagined and is given insight into her troubled marriage back in her own time.
The beginning was a bit slow but was interesting enough to keep you reading. It is a while before Thork and Ruby are able to align themselves with one another and then when they finally do, tragedy stikes and threatens to tear it all apart.
Love Sandra Hill and loved this book. This was a great story about a wife who needed to find herself. Quick read.
Wonderfully entertaining time travel story. The characters are very well fleshed out and bigger than life. The romance is exhilarating and heartbreaking. I shed tears and wished it would never end. Hill's world building comes alive and she excels at accuracy.
