Thanks for stopping by! I’m thrilled to be sharing my review for Claimed by the Viking Chief by Sarah Rodi as part of the blog tour today. With thanks to Rachel at Rachel’s Random Resources for the invite to join the tour and to the author for my copy. First things first let’s take a look at the description for the book…
She can be his lover
…but never his wife!
Forced into servitude, Wren is quietly miserable…until Jarl Knud arrives at her settlement, seeking an alliance through marriage. Despite their initial sizzling attraction Wren despises everything the Jarl represents—and he needs a high-status bride to save his people, not a servant like her. As Wren uncovers the man beneath the fierce Viking chief she’s tempted to claim one forbidden night of passion…but will it ever be enough?
It was so very easy to be pulled into the pages of Claimed by the Viking Chief. The book had such a strong start and I was definitely eager to see where the story would take me. I couldn’t help but love Knud and Wren. Both were strong, resilient and likeable characters. Let’s just say I was rooting for them. The romance played out wonderfully especially as this pair had such a strong chemistry. Although it wasn’t all plain sailing and they definitely didn’t have it easy.
The plot itself moved pretty quickly and I found myself halfway through the book in no time at all. The pacing kept up all the way through and I was eager to see how it would all turn out for them in the end. It’s safe to say that there is a sizzling chemistry between Knud and Wren but I also thought the author did a great job at building a solid connection between the pair. There were some heartwarming moments throughout and this combination created a gorgeous romance!
Claimed by the Viking Chief had it all. A strong story, a stunning romance and a hint of danger. I loved it!
