    When secrets are revealed, who’s who

    When two persons harboring secrets fight their intense attraction, what will win ... I was intrigued by this story because I liked the first book I read by Mrs Ingrid Hahn, sure it was not set during the same historical period, but I had to give it a try. I confess I have lukewarm feelings here. I had a hard time connecting with the main protagonists, while I admired Alodie’s courage, she annoyed me with her repetitive rambling about she paying the price for having had intercourse one time without the protection of marriage. And then suddenly she jumps on the lap of the hero when she is supposed to be married to another, monster or not, it is quite unsettling after all her talk about god and everything else. After she is a strong woman, she makes mistakes but she works hard and does not let misfortune overwhelm her. After his many faults and flaws, I might have liked Thorvald a bit much than Alodie, he is mistaken in his beliefs, and even if for most of the story he refuses to see reason, he gave his words so he is bond to honor them. Then when he understands the wrong of his way, he faces his fears and shame head held high. This has all the ingredients to be a good tale, but I had some problems to relate with the protagonists’ journey. I skipped pages to go farther, as the story became more interesting once both’s motives were revealed, as they finally act as they must. Why my 3.75 rounded to 4 stars. I was granted an advance copy by the publisher Entangled via Netgalley. Here is my true and unbiased opinion.

    Fierce

    This story is filled with lots of wild Viking action. Thorvald is holding on to a secret that is a burden on his heart and is leading him to do things he doesn’t believe in. Alodie is fierce and curios. When she puts herself in a position to be taken captive her life changes. The book is filled with enormous highs and lows. As these two struggle t9 make sense of their place in the world, they will fight for love and faith. You will enjoy the rousing arguments and the spitfire personality that is Alodie.

    Great Premise!

    The Viking’s Captive by Ingrid Hahn is my first book by this author. As a first experience with this author’s work, I found the novel to be interesting. Alodie, a servant, sees Viking ships approaching her island home. She sounds the alarm to her people hoping they have enough time to hide their valuables and save as many lives as possible. When the Vikings reveal that they have come to kidnap her princess, Alodie volunteers to impersonate her. She is instantly drawn to the Viking captain even though she views him as a savage. Thorvald “Longsword” is the captain of the invading Vikings. He is working to fulfill a vow to his leader, Jarl Erlendr, in order to regain his freedom and lands. Thorvald is immediately drawn to Alodie, though he knows she is beyond his reach. The Viking’s Captive has a great premise. It’s well-written and interesting. The characters are well-developed, but I personally found the main characters to be irritating. They both initiate the situations they find themselves in, but seem to forget that fact rather quickly. I did enjoy the story and rate it 3 out of 5 stars. I recommend it to those who enjoy Viking romance. There is some sexual content. My thanks to Entangled Publishing, LLC and NetGalley for the opportunity to read an advance copy of this book. However, the opinions expressed in this review are 100% mine and mine alone.

    A Wonderful Adventure

    From the first page, the adventure began as the Vikings arrive. Alodie sees them on the sea and runs to warn everyone including her mistress, the princess. Elodie begs the Princess to let her act in her place so that she will be safe. Dressing up and standing before the "demons", the leader stepped out and said he had come for the Princess. Thorvald Longsword loathed having to take her. But he would do as he was bid. It was his chance to do something for the Jarl and win his favor and he would free him. He had a secret that had kept him under the Jarls control. He didn;t want to kill the people if the princess would just come with him. Alodie does go with him and the journey begins! Prepare to be drawn into the life of the Norsemen and see how they lived and the lives of two unlikely people to be drawn together! Adventure, suspense, secrets, an attraction that cannot be denied will take you to the end and make you sigh as you turn the last page! Excellent!

    Vikings are always worth a read

    The blurb totally drew me in. I love Vikings. Thorvald has to kidnap a princess in order to get his lands back. Alodie impersonates the princess in order to fool the Northmen into taking her instead. They are both attracted to one another but the secrets they keep, make it impossible to act on those feelings. This book was very good and well written. I give this 3.75 stars. I liked it but there was something missing for me. There was adventure, an evil villain, a strong heroine. A good epilogue. Definitely give this book a try. This ARC was provided by Entangled Publishing via NetGalley. #TheVikingsCaptive #NetGalley
