"a story with passion and heat"
Princess Mandara came across Lord Sigurd for the first
time as she was trying to keep him calm. He and his crew
and their ship had been thrown and tossed to the Isle of
Ice, her Island. All she wanted to do for this man was
bring him back to health. Maybe this man could be the one
to help her and her people. If she marries him, maybe they
can hold off Nandin, a cruel and sadistic man. All Mandara
knows is that this man makes her think and feel things she
never had before. Can Mandara, who has lived a sheltered
life, learn the things that are needed to pleasure such a
man like Sigurd? Will this be enough to keep her and her
When Lord Sigurd saw Princess Mandara for the first time
he thought he was seeing an Angel after he and his
shipmates had been ship wrecked on the Isle of Ice where
Mandara and her people lived. This Island was a strange
place, but if any of the people were half of what Mandara
was, then he and his men are in good hands. As he gets to
know her and the king, and learns what is going on, and
what his coming to their island has caused, all he wants
to do is help in any way he can. Can he show Mandara that
he will take her as his wife, and keep her and her people
as safe as he can? Will it be enough?
I am not much into historicals, but this author changed my
mind for sure. The story grabs your attention quickly and
holds it throughout. There was no place I felt that the
story lagged or wasn't strong. The love that grows between
the two was pure "Heat", but with a passion that showed
love, and to me that was the great part. I look forward to
reading more by this author.

When the Viking sea captain's ship is tossed to a strange Isle of ice, he's nursed by his sable angel.
Her naive ways spur his imagination for teaching her the ways of the world he's experienced.
Later he realizes his arrival has jeopardized King Bohdan and all his people. By taking Princess Mandara as his wife, they may be able to stave off Nandin with his cruel ways and sadistic wants.
Can the sheltered princess learn to accept Sigurd as her mate in all respects? Their intimate times together will teach them both new levels of trust, respect and love.
