Publisher's Summary

Brittany Callaghan thinks she's dreaming when a blond, nearly seven-feet-tall Nordic god shows up on her doorstep in her tiny California town. He claims to be a barbarian warrior in need of her help.Though a stunning, statuesque beauty herself, intelligent and independent Brittany has struggled hard to earn respect in a man's world. She is taken aback when Dalden, a spectacular Viking who is a long way from home, needs her help - and is willing to pay for it. He's had Brittany's blood running red-hot since she first saw him, and warrior or not, she agrees to help him.As bold and brash as she is beautiful, Brittany isn't going to be subservient to any man, even one who is everything she ever wanted in a lover, and whose very touch sets her senses afire. Dalden is a warrior to the depths of his soul - proud, powerful and brave - a man who will fight fearlessly and relentlessly for what he wants. And now, what he wants most of all is Brittany....

Not the beginning of the trio

I know that this author is most well known for her historical romances and I think that's why a lot of reviewers are disappointed - they aren't getting what they're expecting. However, if you do like romances in a sci-fi sense, this is a good one.

The only nit-picky thing I have to say is that the narrator tends to make our main guy sound like a robot.

One other thing - this isn't the first book in this trio ... it's actually the last. Readers may not be used to the world yet if they haven't read the first two books. I read them a few years ago, they're well worth it and I hope they show up here sometime soon.

Enjoyable as a book, but not when narrated...

Would you try another book from Johanna Lindsey and/or Laural Merlington?

I have read and own every Johanna Lindsey book published, and a few on audible as well. I expected to enjoy this much more than I actually did. Laurel Merlington has done "okay" jobs on other Lindsey novels but when narrating the parts of the male main character her voice takes on an almost robot"ish" tone. Also, even though this is fantasy/romance many of the words in the book seem mispronounced, and I have caught a few that are in fact mispronounced (example: Challen, Tedra's lifemate is supposed to be pronounced as Challenge without the G. If you put as much emphasis on detail as I do this will annoy you too much to enjoy having someone else narrate for you. I was unable to enjoy this purchase, and find I am unable to complete the listening experience.


How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

The narrator.


How did the narrator detract from the book?

Male main character had a robot"ish" voice that ruined the reading for me, and some words were, and seemed to be mispronounced.


Did Heart of a Warrior inspire you to do anything?

I was unable to finish the experience.


Any additional comments?

Is a refund possible?
