Two Vikings, Toste and Vagn Ivarsson, twins so identical that only a tiny birthmark differentiates them, find themselves in a battle to the death on their way to pillage a convent. Each brother believes the other to be dead, but each has been saved by a very different angel of mercy. Toste is under the care of Esme, a novice who doesn't trust men. After all, her own father and brothers keep trying to kill her for her inheritance. Vagn finds himself at the mercy of "Helga the Homely," who suffered years of teasing because of the nickname Toste gave her, and she's not real fond of Vagn, either. Once again, Hill has come through with a Viking romance guaranteed to bring on the giggles. Two strong warriors are surprised at the combativeness of women in the war of the sexes, and Sex and the City goes Norse as Viking gals conduct down-and-dirty, and often hilarious, conversations about men. Throw in a five-legged pig, a very odd order of nuns, and a troubadour who sings bawdy songs, and you get quintessential Hill--outrageous, side-splitting, funny-bone-tickling entertainment
