Publisher's Summary

King Alfred of England is trying to keep the peace between Vikings and Saxons, and the best way seems to be through a series of arranged marriages. Dragon Hakonson, a mighty Viking, has been betrothed to the Saxon Lady Rycca. When Dragon discovers a noble young lad running away from home, the lad turns out to be a beautiful young woman. The two fall in love, only to discover that each is the other's intended. Rycca has a strong anti-Viking bias, which is only overcome by her mystical ability to see when people are telling the truth. Dragon is a true gentleman, big, strong, and sensitive, and succeeds in winning Rycca over. But there are parties interested in stopping the marriage before it has a chance to happen.

Interesting Medieval romance novel...

This book is quite long to listen to but well worth the time. It kept my attention. The only thing I suggest is to listen to the first two books first. They're not sequels but the characters are also in the first two novels.

bodice ripper; thin on authentic history

Some books are carefully researched historical fiction. No sign of research here. Both the slim plot and sketchy history only serve as a backdrop to poorly created characters who engage in hot sex. Perhaps a out loud reading of the steamy parts will make up in art what the novel lacks in substance. The reader does a good job without increasing the silliness of the whole thing. I write this to warn those who enjoy more thoroughly historical novels.
