    In the days when Scotland lay under siege - from the Vikings who sailed from the north and the Norman English who came from the south - King David sought to unite his people into one nation. For this, he needed loyal warriors. Waryk de Graham soon proved the greatest of these fighters, and was knighted Lord Lion. But his honored position came with a price: a wife chosen for him by the king - a reluctant Viking bride.

    Overall

    This is my first book from this author and I chose it because of its high ratings. That was misleading... The only way I was able to go through the audiobook is that I had it on faster play. Some parts of the story are too slow with way too many unecessary details. The hero Waryk is quite honorable, wise and patient. The heroine Myllora was an utter idiot and nag. She must have said "I'm a Viking's daughter" and "You bastard!" enough to fill up 10 pages. She was bitchy, mean, a nag and utterly reckless and even violent towards her husband thoughout 3/4 of the book. Her behavior was completely unrealistic at a time when women were treated like a property. I could not understand why Laird Lion would fall for her, except for her beauty I guess. I would give it a C- overall. Too bad none of Julie Garwood or Kinely Macgregor's novels are on audiobooks instead of this waste of time.
