I really enjoyed this story. It was well written and excellently narrated. My attention was kept the whole way through and there are some interesting notes at the end about the true history. I just wish more of her books were available through audible...

Loving Tanya Anne Crosby's stories, I ventured into the Viking world… not my usual, but a surprising delight. She explores relationships of trust here and I love the actual historical aspects of King Olaf she talks about in a note at the end. Awesome narration and the combo of Tanya's work with Braden Wright narrating is why I chose this. I loved it! I read in a blog post that he does a lot of research (learning Cheyenne for Sagebrush Bride… a favorite) and he used the actual Norwegian pronunciations for places and gods (Loki, Vikings, Trondheim) It added to the historical world for this historical romance.

This was my first digital audiobook, and I wasn't disappointed. The framework of the story is fairly standard, which, lets face it, is what fans want to read. However, the book is much more complex than that, with the very gradual unfolding of the romance, between our hero and heroine, who both have their own flaws. Listening to the book, I felt that it was a substantial tale, with plenty of time to round out the characters. The narrator does an excellent job of moving between masculine and feminine voice, without a shred of parody. I really did get lost in the story through the audio medium. Although I've read other works by this author, it will also make me seek out more work by the narrator too.
