It is 850AD and Norse warrior Rolf lands on the shores of East Anglia determined to take revenge on a Celtic clan. Following a fierce battle, where the Celts are savagely killed, Rolf comes face to face with the daughter of the slain Celtic leader. So stunned by the beauty, along with the courage of Brigid, he is convinced that his Three Fates of Destiny brought them together. Resolved to make this woman his own, he spares the lives of the captured Celtic women and children and takes them back to his homeland across the ocean.
Strangely drawn to the Norseman who is so sure they are destined to be together, Brigid must fight against succumbing to the wishes of the man who killed her father. Nevertheless, to save her fellow Celtic captives from slavery or worse, Brigid must keep a bargain with the Norse leader—a bargain that will see her tied to him forever.
In present-day Cornwall, naturally shy Rolf shares his secluded lighthouse with his wolfhound. An artist, he delights in the rugged scenery and ever-changing weather. While in the nearest bookshop one day, he meets a newcomer to town. Brigid’s unusual personality strikes a chord with him. Not only are both convinced they have met before, but their fascination for Viking and Celtic history forges an unusual bond between them. Outspoken and forthright, Brigid sets out to break down the barrier of reserve and caution Rolf has erected over the years. Is it simply whimsy or can lovers across centuries be reunited?
5 stars Notes from a Romantic’s Heart—Nancy Fraser
“Vikings are a personal favorite of mine, so I was eager to read author Tricia McGill’s take on the time period. I was not disappointed. Her knowledge of the history is wonderful, as are her descriptions of both the good and the bad that came with the era.
The scenes set in Celtic/Norse history were well done, as was the notion of Brigid’s sacrifice to save her fellow townspeople. The fact that she was drawn to someone so dis-similar from herself was not a surprise, as it’s a genre staple for the historical romance. However, well written as it was, even the familiar was enjoyable.
I especially enjoyed the contemporary setting and the idea of two reincarnated lovers finding each other for a second time … true soulmates. If you enjoy historical romance with an added bit of fantasy (or, reality if you’re a believer),
then you will surely enjoy the latest book by this talented author.”
