"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
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!
