The story did strike me funny at times because it was the first womens libber BR I have read. These Bby women were total catnerine burners, they didn’t like how the men I found this book on an Amazon Discussion as a great bodice ripper- it wasn’t- and I have had it in my TBR for years.
These Viking women were total bra burners, they didn’t like how the men were treating them so they sabotaged there food, stood up to them, and threw them attitude by demonstrations. I would not bby this one. Dec 19, Pragya rated it really liked it Recommends it for: Well, I found this book left in the hostel room that I was to occupy.
I was excited that I had found a book, no matter what it was.
Even though the cover and title told me it wasn’t a sort of book I catheribe normally read. So the book occupied my shelf for 2 full years before I ran out of paperback books and decided to give it a chance. I read the first few pages and thought to give it away, it just wasn’t my kind of book. But something made me read on and I am so glad I did. Either the book turned Well, I found this book left in the hostel room that I was hawkffell occupy.
Either the book turned out lors be my kind or my preference changed but I ended up loving the book. The characters are very well developed. I fell in love with Mirana, a strong headed woman, beauty, brain and brawn, what a combination!

The plot is well built and never slows down. This is a swift moving action-romance book. There were quite a few surprises in the book. And it also has lot of great humor thrown in. In all, a complete package. A surprise hit book. I would check out other books by the author now. Gawkfell 23, Regan Walker rated it really liked it.
Once on Hawkfell Island, Oc makes friends among the women and comes to see the island as home, but all is not well, and Einar still has plans for her. Coulter has taken care to get the period right, including details of dress, food and dwellings. She has also created some wonderful characters, including a huge dog named Kerzog. The writing is well done and the plot has many satisfying twists and turns. Then, too, Mirana, who Rorik is coming to care for, is the hawkfsll of his enemy who slayed his family.
That these two could find love byy definitely a story of second chances and love triumphing over many obstacles. There is humor, action and a complex love story here. A worthy Viking tale. May 27, Rhapsody rated it liked it Recommends it for: This one was ok.
I liked Mirana, the protagonist, although I thought Rorik could have used more flushing out. The story went that Rorik’s wife and children were murdered by Mirana’s half-brother, Einar. Rorik tries to murder Einar but fails and is captured.
When he manages to escape, he takes Mirana with him, as a hostage. She mouths off to him constantly and he retaliates with some bad treatment, but of course he likes her spirit and she likes his strength and eventually islanv fall in love, alth This one was ok. She mouths off to him constantly and he retaliates with some bad treatment, but of course he likes her spirit and she likes his strength and eventually they fall in love, although that’s far from the end of the book.
It was a lot like another one of Coulter’s–the title has “Sun” in it, as I recall, and was also about an Irish woman taken by an abusive Viking. Haha, when I say that, I have issland ask myself, “What am I reading these days?! I wasn’t expecting her to be able to be a real warrior or anything, but she really doesn’t know how to use them at all.
The whole thing was misleading. She likes carrying a knife, but she’s isn’t really capable of defending herself, it’s all coulterr bravado that gets a little tedious. Gostei da sonsa da escrava se revelando uma espertinha Se pelo menos o sexo tivesse sido bom Oct 29, Amy Sanders rated it liked it.
It was okay for Catherine Coulter. Some parts were better than others. I liked the women at Hawkfell. It would have been nice to hawktell them develope more. That seemed to get dropped. Roriks character lacked depth, even though you understood what motivated him. It might have helped to give his POV so that it added to the story. I liked Mirana, she was strong and intelligent. I thought the switch with the old king, interesting. I wondered if that was haw,fell real legend of the time.
