I am usually not a fan of romance novels. I mean, I enjoy a good Austen or even an action-romance, but historical romance? Eh, it didn’t sound like something I would really like. However, I had my new Kindle and no extra money to burn, so I was shopping through the free books. After passing over some real gems (yeah, right) I came to Loki’s Daughters by Delle Jacobs. It didn’t sound as terrible as the rest of them, and it was free, so I downloaded it.

I have read it three times since then, at least. I’m not saying it is the best book I’ve ever read. I’m not even saying it is up there with the greats. But, somehow, it is very compelling.

The story is one of Vikings and Celts. When every man of fighting age is dead, a Celtic village is left in the hands of a young woman, who is also trying to care for her sister with failing eyesight and her young nephew. They live in fear of Viking invasion, as the last one proved devastating to all involved.

Then, one stormy evening, a Viking warrior surprises the heroine as she’s coming in from the fields. She manages to escape, severely wounding him with her small dagger. Alone and wounded, he secretly follows her home and stumbles into the small hut she shares with her sister and nephew. The women are terrified until he collapses, unconscious. Unable to finish him off, the heroine decides to take care of him and nurse him back to health in the chance that his people won’t slaughter their village when they come looking for him.

Sure enough, more Vikings come searching for the man. They set up shop in the empty huts of the village and tell the women they intend to settle there, and take them for their wives. The women refuse, expecting to be taken anyway. Shockingly, the Vikings instead try to win their hearts.

The rest of the story I will leave to your imagination, but it is in turn humorous, action-filled and romantic. It may not be the best book ever written, but the historical elements add much to the story. Overall, it is a very good book to get for free!
