Review: Defiant in the Viking's Bed

Defiant in the Viking's Bed
By: Joanna Fulford

Rating: 4/5 Cogs


Consumed by revenge—and desire! Captured by his enemy and chained like a dog, Leif Egilsson has one thought in his mind: revenge. He'll no longer be beguiled by the treacherous beauty of Lady Astrid, and her innocence, which he so craved, will finally be his.

On his escape, this fierce, proud Viking is bent on making her pay the price of her betrayal—in his bed! Only, Astrid has the heart of a warrior, and she will not be tamed as easily as he believes….

Victorious Vikings

No man could defeat them. Three women would defy them!


I'm a complete sucker for a Viking, so I snagged this book immediately when I saw it available for review - and I am so pleased that I did!  This historical gem is well written and easy to fall in love with.  Leif and Astrid are a fantastic couple and I had a great time joining in on their adventure.

I found Astrid a great leading lady.  So often in historical romances, the women are demure and shy, but this hellion of a woman gave her Viking a run for his money.  She is strong and even-headed, which amazes me with the intense situations that occur in this story.  I loved the fact that Astrid wouldn't bow down to Leif, she fought back with everything she had, which gave her the ultimate prize - the respect and love from what seemed like a cold Viking heart.

The characters are so well developed and the scenery is amazing.  At times I felt like I was there with them, which is one of my favourite aspects of historical romance.  There were times where I was cheering for Astrid, then others where I wanted to bop Leif in the head.  It is unbelievably difficult to not get involved with this two headstrong characters.

This is a book for all historical fans, I highly recommend you read it!
