You're going to need to suspend your disbelief for this one... and be prepared to laugh.

I'm not familiar with romance novels, I'll be the first one to admit it. But upon hearing that there exists a such thing as Viking/Military Time Travel Romance, well... who could pass it up? I'm not sure what I was expecting, but I feel like for the price of a swap, I benefited even if only because I was made to giggle, guffaw, and chuckle at the humor this author wove into the book.

It seems a little odd, but yes, a Viking warrior is thrust from the 11th century into modern-day Iraq where he is rescued from a tricky situation by some Navy SEALS. And from there, it snowballs. The author builds up some very likable characters in the rest of the Viking clan and the other SEALS, but here is your warning-- the true plot could be contained on a scant few chapters.

A literary masterpiece it is not, a funny and slighty-raunchy read to keep you happy on the beach or pull you out of a dull mood? Absolutely.
