Publisher's Summary

Stolen by marauding Danes, Helena's desperate to escape their camp. She wants to return home, but the wolf-eyed Viking who bought her has his own plans.
Wearied of the sword, Hakan wants a quiet farmer's life, yet peace eludes the chieftain. His once tranquil homeland's in turmoil, and his new Frankish thrall vexes him for her freedom. Even worse, the fair maid lures him with laughter and smiles. Betrayal has left the warrior cold to other women, but one hot summer changes everything. Hakan's icy heart thaws to his clever thrall. Helena weaves happiness into his hard life, and she soon questions her own desires. But shadows of deceit spread across the kingdom, reaching Hakan's farm. Old loyalties call on the Viking to wield his sword again, but at what cost? Before summer ends, master and thrall must answer the hardest question.... How much would you pay for love?

Loved it!

Helena was captured by the Danes and sold as a slave to a Norseman Chieftain named Hakan. She was a feisty clever woman and thought he couldn't speak Frankish, so she insulted him in her own language. She was a challenge to him and soon melted his heart. This is a sweet story well written with interesting historical detail. When I closed my eyes to listen to the great narration, I was transported right there with them at every level. They both had strength, honor and thought of others above their own comfort. I loved this heart warming story.

Viking love

It's been a while since I read a Viking story and my first time listening to one. I am glad I did, it is a pleasure to listen to Mr. Wright's voice, the various characters' voices, emotions are well portrayed. I loved Hakan, a Viking warrior with a gentle heart. He saves Helena by buying her from the Danes, but she is set on returning home. She gets her wish, but once there, she wants Hakan. She is portrayed as a smart, strong woman throughout the story, but with this change of heart at the last minute after putting Hakan thru all that heartbreak, I am not sure she deserves him. But she makes Hakan happy, so there is a HEA for them. The author painted a good image of the life in that era.
