"A Time Travel filled with love and laughter"

Navy Seal Torolf Magnusson had once been a Medieval Viking. Other members of his family had time traveled to the present as well, and though he had unsuccessfully experimented with returning to the past, he had no real desire to do so. That is until his sister Kirstin, now a Professor of ancient studies at U.C.L.A, discovers a frightening truth in a history book. Steinolf, the tyrant who had stolen their family's lands and tortured their sister Madrene, had proclaimed himself king of the Norselands after a ten year reign of terror. Their family might be safe but so many others would die. So when she poses the question, "What would you do if you could change history?" he knows what he must do.

If finding a way to go back to the past wasn't a big enough problem, four of Torolf's Seal buddies insisted on accompanying him on his trip, invoking the "One for all, and all for one" clause. Although they think this time travel mumbo jumbo is a joke, they aren't about to let their teammate face a notorious tango (terrorist) alone. That is how the whole crew found themselves in a longboat replica in the middle of a Norwegian fjord one minute and capsized in the eleventh century the next.

It had been five years since they'd built the dam to keep Steinolf and his brutal horde from reaching "The Sanctuary". Five years since Brunhilda "Hilda" Berdottir had led a rag tag group of beaten and abused women from Amberstead to the refuge of her grandfather's hunting lodge. They'd done just fine without men for five years, but now some of the women have decided that they want children. The last thing Hilda needed was a man, but without warning, men were what she got! They claim to have come from the future to help them rid the world of their worst enemy, but how can she believe when she's known Torolf Magnusson since childhood?

Can a Dark Ages Feminist and Time Traveling Warrior come to a meeting of the minds? Together will they change the history of the world by ridding it of Steinolf? Can they resume their lives without losing a soulmate?

The story doesn't end here, not by a long shot. To say more would spoil the twist, but suffice it to say there's a lot more danger, laughter, and love in store for these two. It won't be easy, but what good romance ever is?

Sandra Hill is funnier than ever in her latest adventure filled time travel romance. This reviewer can't wait to see what happens next!
