In her latest Viking romance, Hill portrays Ragnor Magnusson, who is profoundly bored with his life, and bereft, believing that his parents and many brothers and sisters were lost years ago in a shipwreck. Deciding that the only way out of his slump is to go a'Viking, which would include battles, invasions, and lots of blood, Ragnor leaves his village. During a particularly gruesome attack, he has a vision of his half brother, Torolf, and a red-haired goddess surrounded in light and beckoning to him. Much to his surprise, he then finds himself in a SEAL training camp, where everyone thinks he is Torolf, and where the red-haired goddess turns out to be Lieutenant Alison MacLean, a navy doctor who doesn't know what to make of him. To complicate things further, the SEAL's quick-tempered instructor is Alison's brother, and he doesn't approve of any contact between Ragnor and his sister. Whether Ragnor is mangling the language, driving his frustrated SEAL trainer crazy, or persistently wooing a superior officer, this stubborn Viking is an excellent addition to Hill's wonderful cast of naughty, nervy, time-traveling Norsemen
One of the best books I've read this year. Laugh out loud. A Viking time traveler who trains with Navy Seals. A fierce warrier, and a Navy doctor. The story that you will love. Fast paced, laughs a minute, smart dialogue, sexy banter and great love scenes. Who could ask for more in a book?
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 2 1/2 stars.
This is the 4th book in the Viking II series, and the 2nd in the Magnusson family saga with Ragnon, the brother that was left behind along with his sister Madrene, to care for their father's properties. He meets a Navy doctor, Alison MacLean, while he seems to show up out of nowhere to take the place of his brother, Torolf, who had an accident during SEALs training.
I read the first 4 chapters and could NOT get into it for some reason, so I ended up skipping to the last 3 chapters. I will try again some day to read it competely and give a different review.
