England is burning.

And the cause…men are too afraid to utter in nothing but a whisper.

The Northmen.

My father is King Eanred.

And me?

I am Princess Emeline.

My father wants to protect our kingdom against the ruthless Vikings who continue to raid England, so he has betrothed me to Aethelwulf, the son of King Egbert of Wessex—the most powerful realm in all of England. Without this union, Northumbria will fall, which is why I must submit. I must do this for my people.

However, it is not in my nature to surrender. So when my father captures the most savage Viking known in our land, I do what no good, God-fearing Christian would do—I help him.

His name…Skarth the Godless.

People fear what they don’t understand, but I will not allow that to control me. Fear makes us blind to the truth, and I refuse to cower because Skarth soon becomes my teacher—in all things. And when his rival, Ulf the Bloody, shatters my world, it becomes clear the lessons have only just begun.

My soul is tarnished.

I am a sinner.

Lord, hear my prayer…

My Review 💋

Star Rating : 4/5 Stars

Cliffhanger : yes

Review :

Damn, one of my favorite authors decided to give us a viking romance and I am all ready for it!!! Monica James has been my one click author for a long long time and Her dark romance always pulls me in the best way. This book was no less. She tried a new genre and definitely aced in it!

This one was a take between a lost princess and a hardcore viking who had me swooning for the whole time. Skarth was deadly and totally gorgeous. I wanted go punch the man almost two third of the times and the rest of the times he was too hot to resist 🤣🌝 That being said, you all definitely need to get a taste of this viking .

The ending of this book left me reeling for more and I hope that we all get more and more of these characters! Definitely recommending this one to all the historical romance loving people out there.
