    1. Well researched, Well written, Absorbing Viking taleThis is book 2 in the Heart trilogy see list below , by Kathleen Kirkwood, a pen name for Anita Gordon It was my first by her but definitely won t be my last I loved it.I wish I d known this was the second story before I began, as I would have read book 1 first The hero and heroine in book 1, Brienne and Rurik, are characters in book 2 and there are lots of references to their story and the characters from that story I also had the feeling I mi [...]

    2. Really waffling between rating it one or two stars The writing, even by Purple Prose standards, is fairly painful Filled with twill 15 , twould 46 , mayhap 67 , tis 122 , and twas 207 Heroine Ailinn is the most beautiful woman ever, ever, ever Everywhere she goes all the men lust after her and all the women are jealous bitches Hero Lyting Atlison is the most handsome man ever, ever, ever but at least he does stuff See, that s my main complaint with Ailinn she doesn t do anything At the very begi [...]

    3. Really loved how the author began with the continuation of Rurik and Brienne and the birth of their first clutch of children before launching into Lytings tale of rescuing Ailinn I did enjoy this book, however in some areas I felt I was actually reading a historical fact book not a fiction, little too much over explanations of history and seemed to drift from the story Little surprised when Deira was killed off, which seemed to trigger a line of deaths, disappearances and abductions lol I m gla [...]

    4. Loved this second book in the Heart series The story was packed with action and perilous moments had my heart in my mouth I found the author description of the places to be outstanding Constantinople l was there, seeing the lustrous buildings and vibrant colours, looking upon people from all walks of life, could smell and hear all the place had to offer The attraction Lyting and Ailinn clearly had for each other blossomed throughout the story, culminating in full bloom passion and a love everlas [...]

    5. Lyting is back I was so incredibly excited to read about Lyting, and have him as the hero of this book He captivated me in book one, and again in book two He is so honorable and deserving to find love He is the picture perfect Viking in my whirling dreams He is very masculine, and clever as a fox Although covered in the harshness of his environment, he is still gentle and kind to the people that he loves He melted my heart with his care toward protecting his kin, as well as the woman that he lo [...]

    6. The second book in Anita Gordon Kathleen Kirkwood s Heart series sees Lyting taking a journey to Constantinople with the Irish slave Ailinn Lyting appears in all three books and in each book I liked him the best so obviously I was pleased to read his story Ailinn is fairly boring but that is okay because not every heroine can be a sassy brassy miss After all its pretty rough being a freshly captured slave that does not speak the language of one s captors Another reviewer here rightly points out [...]

    7. Captured during a wedding ceremony, Aileen and other maidens of Ireland are carried off by Danes She is spared the rapes her friends suffer, because the man who claims her sees her virginity as a valuable commodity He intends to make a gift of her to a corrupt official in Constantinople, who can grease his way in the silk trade Unfortunately, her beauty has caught the eye of his rapey nephew, who can t see past the end of his own pecker to save his life Literally.Fortunately, she also gains the [...]

    8. An exceptional storyThis author has shared a most exceptional story in The Defiant Heart It s truly medieval adventure romance with great characters.Aillinn and others are captured during a raid by Norsemen and carried away by ship All are ravished by their captors except Aillinn who is singled out by the chieftain to be a gift for a trader from whom he seeks a favor.Lyting is a Dane who is smitten by Aillinn s beauty and is determined to protect her during a shared voyage He is traveling to Con [...]

    9. Good trilogy.Good plot and storyline Well written also Highly recommended to historical Romance fans I don t know why these thing make you have so many words to the review It is annoying that it won t submit just the amount AdWords want to submiterefore this will be my last SQ

    10. Received this book for free through While I liked the characters and plot, I found the beginning to be very dry If I weren t such a stubborn reader I never would have finished it Once I got a third in however it was much better The main male kept cracking me up Monk indeed And I liked how the female lead wasn t, exactly, timid as period writers tend to do.

    11. Took me longer than ususl to get through this novel It didn t grab me and entice me to keep reading Good thing I am a stubborn reader I found parts of the story interesting, but a lot of it dragged and was a tad dull I liked the ending though.

    12. This was the second epic novel in the series, I initially didn t like it as much as the first book, but the ending was brilliant Again this would make a great suspense epic film Well worth a read.m

    13. 3.75 A fantastic sweep of history as a background to adventure and romance Other reviewers can detail the story it swept me along like the rapids on the river The historical detail leaves me in awe.

    14. D.N.FThis story had nothing on it It had me at a BORE for the first hundred over pages.The hero and heroine know of each other s existence but barely made contact It made me want to tear my hair out wondering when some interaction is going to happenPE JUST SKIP THIS.

    15. This read like a History book then romance Set in the Byzantine empire, the author gives vivid details of the country and political scene.Don t have too much to say about this one.

    16. A good book of a young woman taken as a slave and was to be used to further silk trade about the world A young warrior who seeks to become a monk pledges to return her to her home.

    17. I enjoyed this historical romance adventure although there were some slow moving sections It is well written and the plot was a good one.
