"A fine new voice in romance"
DREAM OF ME. The Vikings and the Saxons are at war as
they have been for centuries. Viking leader Wolf Hakonson
believes that the "Ice Princess" Lady Cymbra is the cause
of the latest conflict. Leading his men on a raid of her
castle, Wolf captures Cymbra, but quickly she melts his
heart with her passion as love sets in between the duo.
BELIEVE IN ME. As a follow-up to the beginnings of
peace started by the marriage of his sister Cymbra to the
Viking, Lord Hawk weds Norsewoman Lady Krysta. He knows he
must do whatever it takes to make this marriage of state
work if he is to build on his sibling's success and further
the cause of peace. However, the Saxon and the Viking
never anticipated love to enter their relationship.
Readers gain two full historical novels for the price
of one book as Bantam showcases the debut of Josie Litton's
strong new sub-genre voice. Both books contain strong
characters and resplendent details distinguishing the era
when the Vikings and Saxons constantly fought one another.
The story lines are well written, never slowing down with
only one problem. If readers are as selfish and hedonistic
as this reviewer, they would have wanted a triplet rather
than wait a whole month for book three.
