The Viking’s Captive by Ingrid Hahn is my first book by this author. As a first experience with this author’s work, I found the novel to be interesting.
Alodie, a servant, sees Viking ships approaching her island home. She sounds the alarm to her people hoping they have enough time to hide their valuables and save as many lives as possible. When the Vikings reveal that they have come to kidnap her princess, Alodie volunteers to impersonate her. She is instantly drawn to the Viking captain even though she views him as a savage.
Thorvald “Longsword” is the captain of the invading Vikings. He is working to fulfill a vow to his leader, Jarl Erlendr, in order to regain his freedom and lands. Thorvald is immediately drawn to Alodie, though he knows she is beyond his reach.
The Viking’s Captive has a great premise. It’s well-written and interesting. The characters are well-developed, but I personally found the main characters to be irritating. They both initiate the situations they find themselves in, but seem to forget that fact rather quickly. I did enjoy the story and rate it 3 out of 5 stars. I recommend it to those who enjoy Viking romance. There is some sexual content.
My thanks to Entangled Publishing, LLC and NetGalley for the opportunity to read an advance copy of this book. However, the opinions expressed in this review are 100% mine and mine alone.
