He is bound by honor… 
Eirik is eager to plunder the treasures of the fabled lands to the west in order to secure the future of his village. The one thing he swears never to do is claim possession over another human being. But when he journeys across the North Sea to raid the holy houses of Northumbria, he encounters a dark-haired beauty, Laurel, who stirs him like no other. When his cruel cousin tries to take Laurel for himself, Eirik breaks his oath in an attempt to protect her. He claims her as his thrall. But can he claim her heart, or will Laurel fall prey to the devious schemes of his enemies? 

She has the heart of a warrior… 

Life as an orphan at Whitby Abbey hasn’t been easy, but Laurel refuses to be bested by the backbreaking work and lecherous advances she must endure. When Viking raiders storm the abbey and take her captive, her strength may finally fail her—especially when she must face her fear of water at every turn. But under Eirik’s gentle protection, she discovers a deeper bravery within herself—and a yearning for her golden-haired captor that she shouldn’t harbor. Torn between securing her freedom or giving herself to her Viking master, will fate decide for her—and rip them apart forever?


#1 in the new series, “Viking Lore”, and what a beginning! Fast paced and adventure filled. “Enthralled”, is a historical romance reader’s delight. It has everything a romance reader could possibly want, in a powerful, engaging story.
It shows the challenges,culture, the struggles, honor and romance of the Viking warriors.
The sensual tension pops off the page, between the H/H, as well as the danger involved in a woman captured and claimed as a thrall of a Viking.
As trouble brews love blossoms, but can love survive the tension and cultural challenges?
Well written with vivid descriptions and engaging, strong and challenging characters. The storyline is unique and absolutely spellbound for fans of Viking Historical Romance. A well thought-out tale of love, the difference between cultures and the power of love. I can’t wait for the next installment in the “Viking Lore” series. Highly recommended for fans of Viking stories, Historical Romance, adventure and darn good reading. Powerful, alluring, and a fantastic read.
