    Fresh & Unique!

    Historical romance was my very first love. It was my first introduction to the genre in the sixth grade. I was 11. Since then, my love for historical romance has grown and expanded to other genres under the romance umbrella and beyond, but I always find that reading a well written historical romance always hits the spot. The Warlord's Wife is one of the first romances I can recall reading set in the 12th century and only the second or third set in Sweden. I was hooked from the very first page. My introduction to Lida was brutal and I couldn't help but be shocked at how she was being treated. Fast forward eight years and Lida is happy with her circumstances. Until Jarl Magnus arrives and all of a sudden expresses interest in her. It was interesting seeing an uninterested-in-marriage-Lida clash with a Magnus who used to unquestioned obedience. It was also interesting to see how Magnus handled his immediate duties acting as Katia's parent, even though little girls bewildered him. I love seeing him with her and the care he had for her. It's funny, the only place Magnus didn't struggle much with Lida was in bed. There the two of them were amazing. However that slowly changed as they came to learn about one another and trust each other. Of course it didn't help there were forces outside their marriage trying to force them apart. I couldn't believe Magnus didn't see the threat, but then again he was used to men attacking him from the front and not behind, unlike this cunning enemy. I really wanted to do some violence to the perpetrators of treachery. I could feel Magnus's worry and Lida's fear for her family. I also liked how information was revealed that added twists I didn't see coming. Thankfully, my journey with these wonderful characters will not end here. It seems Sandra Lake is now writing Katia's story and I can not wait to read it. I really think Sandra Lake did a phenomenal job with this book and I can't wait to see what wonderful stories she writes. If you're a fan of historical romance or just stories that have you on the edge of your seat, this one is for you!

    Engaging read

    I requested this book to read from Netgalley because I loved the cover. I read the blurb and it made me felt even better about my request. Then I went on Goodreads, and after reading a few of the reviews I braced myself to hate this heroine, and only liking the book. But I loved her and I really enjoyed The Warlord’s Wife. Lida was an interesting character. An offer was placed before her to marry a powerful Warlord, and she accepted because she wanted the best of life for her daughter who was branded a bastard. Though Lida married Magnus willingly, she fought against giving him her trust and her love. She was very stubborn about it, but I liked her despite it. It could not have been easy to be wedded and bedded by a man she knew for less than twenty four hours, and then be swept away to a different land. I saw her adjustment period, her fears, and saw as she slowly learned to trust Magnus. By the second half of the book she decided to trust him, and their story did become more enjoyable then. Magnus himself was a good hero. Powerful, yet charming and protective of those he love. Even when he thought to protect himself from the sensual and bewitching lure of Lida, he did not treat her with disdain. But with respect and honor. I loved his interactions with Lida’s daughter, and it really showed the manner of man he was. Yet the book was not perfect. It lacked that heart pounding tension I expected from a Viking book. Not in respect to the action and the threat to the family. That was well done. But in respect to Magnus and Lida. Their passion and chemistry was sweet, instead of intense and fiery. That raw intensity I did not get, but I was still enthralled by the love building between Magnus and Lida, the sinister threat to their family, and I was compelled to read The Warlord’s Wife through the night. 4.5 stars I recommend.
