In Erin Weakens Her Resolve And Steals Erin weakens her resolve and steals her heartGolden Surrender is the first installment in the Viking Saga written by Heather Graham I have read only historicals from this author and I love them and Golden Surrender is my favorite so far from her books that she has written I have read Golden Surrender before but it has been a while and since I saw this on the library shelf I decided to ick it up since I was in the mood for this type of story Its a Thirteenth Child (Frontier Magic, powerfully written love story back in the medieval age around 900 AD I find that there aren t that many books that are written in this era and so I love to read every one that I can get my hands on because I find it so fascinating especially the Vikingeople Throughout this story we learn what kind of Craft Notes for Animators people they were even though they could very well be barbarians they had aassion for life and for their beliefsThere was only one roblem i had with the only one roblem I had with the was Erin her character it just seemed to me that she was too strong and had so much hatred within her and treated Olaf Popular Representations of Development pretty horribly but as the storyrogressed I loved seeing the change within her Both of these characters are stubborn loyal and strong Sister for Sale personalities so they definitely clash especially at the beginning of the story But as the love between them depends so does thisassionate love story Golden Surrender is on my list of favorite romances and one well worth reading for any romance lover I ve stayed up all night to read this book and what a fine tale it was This is my favorite type of historical romance tale Kings and Knights their ueens and their ladies What I really enjoyed most about this tale was the fact both hero and heroine were in fact real life historical figures that Ms Graham usedThe setting of the story is in Dublin Ireland during the Viking Invasion of Ireland Olaf the White the Norwegian Wolf did in This is a very hard book for me to rate First of all Heather GrahamShannon Drake writes some of my favorite vampire and historica I REALLY enjoyed this book and it could have easily been a 5 star read The story line was really good but I just got tired of the Hh not telling each other how they felt about each other This lead to many of misunderstandings throughout this read Other than that I LOVED both of the Hh s characters The heat level for me was a 3 sensual but nothing too descriptive At curtain spots my emotions were grabbed and I cried other times I got ma.

Ge turner After the first few chapters there wasn t another mild moment in this book until the epilogue The constant intensity was exhausting I can t imagine what it would be like to live in a time when death waited around every corner and entire generations had no knowledge of
a life without war whether they were fightinglife without war Whether they were fighting their lives land vengeance hate or love it was all done with unrestrained assion This is exactly how I like my books I will forget dozens of other ho hum books I read this year but this one will stick with me books I read this year but this one will stick with me a best art Although this book is a work of fiction it based on real events real wars and real eople both Viking and Irish from the 9th century Olaf the White was indeed a Viking Sea King who became King of Dublin in 853 He really did marry the daughter of Aed Finnlaith although he may have been married to someone else first Basing this book on the life of a real Viking King was brilliant It truly blurs the line between fantasy and realitySomething else I appreciated was the absence of an infidelity misunderstanding Backlash : La guerre froide contre les femmes plotline I know that might sound strange but I get really tired of reading that same old song and dance in so many romance novels In this book there were several threads of betrayal both real and misunderstood including one major event that wasredicted earlier in the book by the Druid Mergwin But there was nothing generic about how these storylines Die Botin des Königs (Reiter-Trilogie played out Without uestion Olaf and Erin had their moments of jealousy but the author never fell back on the overly used and totallyredictable love triangle I d like to send her a thank you note for that I d also like to give her a high five for writing some of the best bedroom scenes I ve ever readOne last note when a historical romance is set as far back as the Middle Ages there is a very good chance that it will include some controversial content A few examples might be 13 yr old girls married to men than twice their age women forced or sold into marriage men exercising their rights in the marriage bed absent willingness or consent from their wives torture abuse war rape slavery etc Obviously these concepts in modern times are considered heinous crimes But whether we like it or not they were acceptable Patagonia Express practices in various cultures throughout world history until tapering off in the last century Sowhy do I bring this up Because if you are likely to judge the behavior of 9th century book characters based on our 21st century standards of law and human rights then you might want to skip this book In order to enjoy a novel like this one you have to be able tout it into the context of acceptable behavior in that time Predator period I loved this book but I don t want to sugar coat the fact that it does include several of the examples I listed aboveI can t come up with anything negative to say about it I d highly recommend this book to fans of historical fiction andor historical romance Due to the occasional Druid magicerformed by Mergwin and the constant references to Norse Gods this book might appeal to fans of Fantasy also I can t wait to read the next book in the series.
