    Ohhh, this is what I call a bodice ripper of the new generation LOLNice story and nice writing style I liked both the hero and the heroine At the beginning he was really mean to her, but she was also very thorny too, so it just was very well balanced During the story all his and hers insecurities come out in the open and it was, at times funny and at times painful to see how they got through everything Sometimes he humiliated her and sometimes she humilated him.The only small detail that I Ohhh, this is what I call a bodice ripper of the new generation LOLNice story and nice writing style I liked both the hero and the heroine At the beginning he was really mean to her, but she was also very thorny too, so it just was very well balanced During the story all his and hers insecurities come out in the open and it was, at times funny and at times painful to see how they got through everything Sometimes he humiliated her and sometimes she humilated him.The only small detail that I didn t like was the ending it seemed a little bit rushed I would have liked to see ain depth explanation He seemed to accept too easily her explanation, and after all the trouble they had communicating during the length of the book I would have thought that it would have been better developed, butThere is a teasing hint that the next book could be about Gunther and his search for a wife I really hope that Ms Pillow will wright about him it would be great D

    I was in the mood for something angsty, and since the Viking series on the History Channel, I ve also been interested in reading listening to something from that era So, this book delivered on both fronts in this chemical romance through the melting together of Viking Hero, Brant Lord Blackwell , the Flame, and his lady wife Lady Della, the Cold hearted As previous reviewers have indicated, you will feel a myriad of emotions on this medieval journey of love It is an emotional, roller coast I was in the mood for something angsty, and since the Viking series on the History Channel, I ve also been interested in reading listening to something from that era So, this book delivered on both fronts in this chemical romance through the melting together of Viking Hero, Brant Lord Blackwell , the Flame, and his lady wife Lady Della, the Cold hearted As previous reviewers have indicated, you will feel a myriad of emotions on this medieval journey of love It is an emotional, roller coaster especially for the values of a 21st century listener Yet, through the many tumultuous emotions that encompassed the experience of this book, overall, I was rooting for a fabulous HEA for both Brant and Della This book is about a very conflicted relationship between a couple from different cultures who go through many misunderstandings because they don t share all of their feelings, they speak too harshly and can t take things back due to pride Della, herself has one of the most sharp tongues I ve witnessed from a heroine She says awful things to Brant that come very close to fruition And, even though, most of the time, Brant was thepatient of the pair, he was ruthless in his treatment of his wife even though he felt remorseful In this era, it was what was expected In fact, with all of the brut power and force of the law on the husband s side, it s amazing how much influence and control Della actually held in her manor and with her husband She is a very strong heroine, despite her shrewish flaws But, there s always a reason behind the way people act, and Della definitely has a reason for her prejudice and hatred of Vikings Brant understood this and seemed to really exert effort in making his marriage work Despite the tumult, I kept listening because I couldn t stop Also, the steamy romances between the two was really good I just wish there wascoverage of the blissful and light moments between the lovers because when they loved it was amazing..they loved almost as passionately as they fought Unfortunately, the end felt very rushed and it did not fully make up for the dramatic, violence that preceded it For this reason there should have been an epilogue On the positive side, thankfully, there is a resolution to their issues This story may have a lot of emotionally, crushing moments, but it is very well written Let me tell you Michelle Pillow really knows how to tell a story, no matter how steamy or chilling Lastly, I thought the narrator was excellent Mason Loyd did a great job in narrating both the masculine, Viking voices as well as the ladies

    This book has been the big elephant on my Goodreads Currently Reading list, because theaccurate way to describe what I was doing with this book was avoiding, and not reading I got about halfway through it and I just can t see the finish line I just can t finish it I really, really wanted to like it and I really, really wanted to finish it, but, alas, I cannot and I have to just face the fact that it won t happen Every time I come back to it, I just get this really anxious feeling in This book has been the big elephant on my Goodreads Currently Reading list, because theaccurate way to describe what I was doing with this book was avoiding, and not reading I got about halfway through it and I just can t see the finish line I just can t finish it I really, really wanted to like it and I really, really wanted to finish it, but, alas, I cannot and I have to just face the fact that it won t happen Every time I come back to it, I just get this really anxious feeling in the pit of my stomach and have to put it down again I don t know if I can write a fair review if I haven t finished the book Then again, the fact that I can t get to the end might speak for itself.When I first picked up the book I thought it was going to be a fun historical romance with a frustrating heroine who annoys the big bad Viking and gets foiled in her attempts at undermining him by her own desires and his prowess I expected there to be some conflict I expected there to be repercussions for some of the things that the heroine did She wasn t exactly trying to be endearing and some of the things she said and did were not very well thought out However, I felt that the punishments did not fit the crimes I got through two such punishments, and they were both brutal and possibly emotionally damaging Honestly, after the first one, I wasn t sure how the heroine was ever going to forgive the hero, especially considering her personal history and the fact that she said she wouldn t ever forgive him The second punishment was publicly humiliating, physically painful, and hurtful, and it was all because of a misunderstanding I just thought it was too much.Also, I couldn t make the mental leap from feuding couple emotionally draining and physically painful not in a fun kind of way to making love Fucking Whatever I couldn t I needed them to take time to repair the damage first Especially because there was existing damage that wasn t repaired from punishment number one I just needed a little bithere.Another thing that turned me off was the back and forth between the hero and heroine The I love you, I love you not, and the Does s he love me, does s he love me not I just felt like so much unpleasantness could have been avoided for them if only they just admitted their feelings for each other I m not saying it should have been super easy I m saying that it seemed to be super hard, maybe too hard And maybe some people enjoy the suspense and the back and forth and the anxiety But it is not to my taste, so I just had to put the book down and walk away.Maybe I m reading this through the eyes of a 21st century woman with a different concept of fair punishment as opposed to the medieval mindset that was a bitbrutal But I am a 21st century woman, and this book was written for a 21st century audience.The writing itself was good The sex scenes that I read were hot The style just wasn t to my taste and there were too many issues that I just couldn t reconcile Maybe other readers would enjoy this book and for that reason, I m giving it two stars To readof my reviews go to haydeereviews.blogspot.com

    AudioBook Review Stars Overall 5 Narration 5 Story 4 I m a huge fan of those retro bodice ripper stories you know the ones with Fabio on the cover and you can SO not judge me for that They are escapist, they pull at your emotions and deliver some moments with characters where you wish to be able to reach out and shake them because they are being so contrary I m also in a huge Historic Romance kick of late, there is something so unique to the world and the conventions that give authors a wa AudioBook Review Stars Overall 5 Narration 5 Story 4 I m a huge fan of those retro bodice ripper stories you know the ones with Fabio on the cover and you can SO not judge me for that They are escapist, they pull at your emotions and deliver some moments with characters where you wish to be able to reach out and shake them because they are being so contrary I m also in a huge Historic Romance kick of late, there is something so unique to the world and the conventions that give authors a way to work around those, and further develop some depth in their characters to make up for an often rigid society Well, Michelle M Pillow has managed to blend all of the elements and return a story that pleases my need for an emotionally charged escapist read in a world built with lush historical details and a bit of angst as the characters fight traditional conventions.Brant is a strong leader, competent and capable and well respected by his men Fiery is his nature, passionate and determined, this is all signified with a shock of red hair that graces his locks He is truly the Lord of Fire, and it only remains to be seen if he can melt the icy reserve of his wife and lady.Della is cold, yet that is a shell to protect her heart and express her discomfort with her situation While she appears to use her lack of emotion and reactions to embarrass Brant in the company of others, her utter dismissal of him during their private moments are akin to throwing ice on a burn.Yet, the two need to learn to trust one another, and find the keys to share the passion that is buried within And there is where I had a few moments of repetition in the story there was often a rehashing of their issues, as if neither wanted to learn from the first time around Those were moments that made me want to shake them A few overused words that came up often, and a bit too much dithering in interior monologues about their undying concerns, passions or love when it was abundantly clear to the reader that they were electric and attached to one another, they seemed to take a bit of time to get to that realization themselves I did adore the fact that this was a veryearly historic romance, based in the middle of the Anglo Saxon era of Vikings and Wars and Alfred the Great, king of the West Saxons.Narration in this story is provided by Mason Lloyd, and his voice is unusual for most romances, yet a perfect adjunct to the story Effortlessly modulating pitch, tone and even accent, his narration never distracts and often enhances theemotional moments, adding in scorn, disbelief, anger and frustration with apparent ease Even the softer moments are clearly defined with his voicing, and the rare moments of happiness and laughter are spoken as if he were smiling from within.This isn t a smooth run to the end, but the story rarely finds the reader without some sort of emotion from frustration to anger to worry to ultimate cheers as the two finally sort out their communication and manage to come together for a happy ending.I received an audiobook copy of the title from the author for purpose of honest review I was not compensated for this review all conclusions are my own responsibility

    Got this as a First Reads from Michelle Pillow herself I REALLY wanted to give this higher than 3 stars, but just don t feel like I could and be totally honest I DID like both Della, and Brant, over all They were both decent, good hearted people deep down And the sex scenes were pretty well written My issues are as follows 1 methinks was overused Used multiple times on each page, it really came across as forced Could ve done without reading that one words SOOO darned often Small crit Got this as a First Reads from Michelle Pillow herself I REALLY wanted to give this higher than 3 stars, but just don t feel like I could and be totally honest I DID like both Della, and Brant, over all They were both decent, good hearted people deep down And the sex scenes were pretty well written My issues are as follows 1 methinks was overused Used multiple times on each page, it really came across as forced Could ve done without reading that one words SOOO darned often Small criticism, though, that 2 often the character would say do things that were completely 180 degrees off from what they professed to be feeling IE Brant felt tenderly toward Della but proceeded to follow her from a room in a rage The two emotions just do not jibe, certainly not in the same sentence 3 There was SOOO much misunderstanding between Della Brant Times I wanted to reach into the pages knock their equally wooden heads together, other times I wished Gunther or Edwyn secondary characters would to it for me or that they d bring in a good marriage councelor LOL 4 With so much misunderstanding, so much does s he, doesn t s he between the characters, so much fighting making up, the book seemed to really drag on I m giving it 3 stars, because over all I think the story has promise, and some good bits.Michelle M Pillow I m hoping, Ms Pillow, that for future novels you ll consider this as positive criticism, and that of the other reviewers, and not be too angry with the criticisms I did have I DID enjoy your book and I appreciate you picking me as a First Reads winner I think I would love to read a novel about Gunther but please reduce the amount of back forth, reduce the number of methinks used , and perhaps a good Thesaurus, maybe for those moments when rage is about to be used for the 10th time
