The one where you immediately classify the book as a wallpaper historical and the author as lazy? How about when you discover that the author deliberately dumbed down things?Yeah She didn't think we were smart enough to figure out location so she used countries that didn't exist yet called garments by their english translations and probably also words that didn't exist yet or clothing that didn't exist in anglo saxon So I'm mad Mad because I dislike being treated like an imbecileAnd I didn't like the h the H or the h's half sister The h's stepfather made me think of an old man whose mind is slipping into his second childhood the h was an arrogant self righteous know it all who didn't like playing second fiddle to anyone the H was her euivalent though with the added bonus of being mistrustful both were willfully stupid at times too and the half sister was shallow self absorbed and spoiled Apparently the father had never worn the braes in his household and when their mother died he let his 8 year old stepdaughter take over the management of the estate Right And raising of the younger sister as well So the younger sister has never been made to do anything and the only times papa ever notices her lack of cooperation is whenever guests arrive like the H who btw wondered what sort of message papa was sending him when papa suggested younger daughter needed a husband and that older girl was betrothed Oh I dunno don't dally with my daughters perhaps?The highlight might have been when the h managed a meeting with her real father who was v disturbed to discover she was the H's concubine mom was a princess dad was a king yeah; can see how that would be a problem

He wants – and Princess Thyre will not become the exception to his rule Mysterious and enchanting Thyre rouses Ivar’s desire the moment he lays eyes on her With Viking fact I did not know before buying that this is part of a series I've dropped into the middle of a series before and while not pleasant the authors often make allowances for the gaps in back story And I as the reader don't have the same emotional connection to characters from previous stories but I can still enjoy the current tale At first I thought that my problems with understanding what was going on was due to my not having read the previous books But further on I realized that no this story is just barely strung together There was no sense of setting whatsoever You knew if they were outside inside or on a boat And that was about it really It could have been set in a void for all the lack of setting details What first bugged me ironically was the constant over telling The heroine seemed to reiterate everything and point out the obvious in her thoughts And then something would occur that did not gel with anything in the story and no explanation was given It was so jarring that I kept checking to see if I had inadvertently skipped a page An example of this is that the hero just appears out of nowhere to save the day He was supposed to be on a ship but then just appears and no one seems surprised or confused about that other than me the one holding the book Throughout the characters consistently dropped non seuiturs which kept throwing me out of the story I couldn't stand the heroine She came off as an arrogant idiot She was built up to be a smart capable woman but her actions just proved her to be full of herself and her own worth and showed her to be pretty stupid For instance it is continually stated that only her mother's pleadings and willingness to be banished kept the king from killing the heroine at birth But for some reason the heroine insists that this same king who she believes is a coward and a thief will listen to her demands for him to honor a treaty She then is shocked that she faces death at his hands As for the romance it made no sense at all With all the non seuiturs I kept thinking the two of them were talking to other people I've read signals crossed story lines but this was just badly done Again their actions did not match up with anything they said or felt or thought This story was a mess I'm pretty annoyed I spent the last of my gift card on it But that's what I get for being suckered by a pretty cover and being desperate for something to read in the middle of the night

The Viking's Captive Princess‘No one touches my woman She bears my mark I claim her’ Dangerous warrior Ivar Gunnarson is a man of deeds not words With little time for the ideals of love Ivar seizes what First Read Winner So cool Anyway ok so this was a really interesting story for me Historical books are either hit or miss This one was a hit for me But The reason I gave it three stars was because there were soooo many times when I wanted to smack Ivar I mean I think that it has to do with the way women are treated in that era But dang it all Thyre was awesome Loved her I loved that the female character was so strong and didn't listen to what was being directed to her to do She followed her heart and did what she thought was right even when things went wrong than once Overall this was a sweet story from long ago and would pass it onto my friends to read
