Wulgar Thorrason’s inability to keep his lust under control earns him the ire of a Faery Princess, who sends him forward in time to modern-day Michigan to learn the difference between lust and love. There he meets Raven Harrison, a romance author. The petite beauty piques his lust, but he sees red when she scoffs at his tale of being a time-traveling Viking.
Raven is blown over by the handsome and half-dressed man who comes out of nowhere. His sensuality sends a shiver of desire straight to her feminine core. However, his tale of being curse by a Faery leads her to believe he should be locked up for his own protection. Before she can suggest just that, someone begins shooting at them, and both she and the Viking are running for their lives.
A circumstance that brings them closer in more ways than one, until their unknown assailant threatens Wulf’s life. Now both must make decisions that could destroy their relationship before it gets off the ground—and before the Viking is snatched back to the past.
When Wulfgar Thorrason wakes from a drunken night of debauchery, he is confronted by the angry fairy princess, Catriona. Tired of his womanizing ways she curses Wulf to never seeing his homeland again until he knows the difference between love and lust. Raven Harrison is taking photographs for her next book when a sudden storm arises and dumps a medieval Viking in her lap. If that’s not crazy enough, someone is shooting at them.
Viking, Go Home, was a charming tale of fairies and time travel. What red blooded woman doesn’t want a big, sexy Viking at her beck and call. Can you say. YUM? This is a tried and true formula for a great, heartwarming story.
Independent, tough and yet still innocent, Raven is the perfect foil for Wulf’s macho egotism. How he handles his dependency on Raven in this unfamiliar century gives the reader a feeling of justice served for all the broken hearts Wulf cast aside. I was amazed that Raven contained her feelings for Wulf so well. Let’s just say if positions were reversed, I would have been on Wulf like a coon dog with a chicken bone. This is not a graphic story and the love scenes are sweet and tastefully written. The anticipation of what’s to come is what gives this tale it’s sensuality.
