Publisher's Summary

A twist of fate....

When Aestrid Karisson escapes for an afternoon of adventure, she never suspects to alter her destiny forever. Captured by Veleif Kollsvein and his fearsome warriors, Aestrid is mistaken as a slave. It isn't until they reach Veleif's stronghold that her true identity is discovered.

A battle of wills....

Determined to torment him until he returns her to her home, this vixen wages a personal war with the dark and dangerous Viking prince. When Veleif's high council decides the two must marry, he embarks on a campaign of his own.

Seduction.

Can the wicked heat in Veleif's game of temptation melt Aestrid's combative heart? Or will the Viking prince find himself tamed by his rebellious bride?

His Viking Bride is a love story filled with folly and challenge, wit and passion...with two iron-willed characters who share more than their explosive traits, the ecstasy of all-consuming love.

Prepare to be amazed!

When you press play, it’s like popping open a lovely champagne- bubbling over with effervescence and life. Within the first 5 minutes of the opening salutation, I was completely bewitched by the irresistible combination of a well- written story given sparkling animation by a truly gifted voice actor. I can honestly say this is the first time I’ve been inspired to compose a favorable review before the first chapter was fully underway (that usually happens if the audiobook is exceptionally horrid...) This title will grab your imagination and sweep you far away to the world created by the author so don’t hesitate to exchange your credit for this gem. It’s a romance to be sure, but it’s too early in the book to say how spicy...quite honestly I don’t really care since I’m so enchanted by what I’ve heard so far. I’ll be looking for this author/narrator duo with eager anticipation.

One of my favorite historical romances

First of all I have to say I loved the characters in this book! Spirited and determined Aestrid is an incredibly stubborn, yet caring character and the strong, dominant and oh- so- masculine Veleif can't help but be drawn to her. She is nothing like he has ever encountered before. Their head to head battle of wills and vocal sparring makes for an amusing and entertaining book. The little comments made by Veleif's men made me laugh several times. In addition to the great writing of this book, Greg Patmore gives an excellent performance which truly brings life to the characters. The strong voice he gives to these big Vikings was wonderful and made listening more enjoyable for me. This one is a must have for fans of Viking historical romances!

Excellent Historical Romance!

I really enjoyed listening to this entertaining tale! The story draws you in and keeps you engaged all the way to the conclusion. The author did an excellent job creating a unique story with great characters to keep you enthralled all the way through. Narration was excellent and brought the story to life. The only thing I could have done without is the main character being with someone else after he has met the feisty Aestrid. I prefer when the main character only has eyes for one woman. Although, this book was so well written and entertaining that I did not let this one point interfere with my final review score. I throughly enjoyed being immersed in the story and this book is well worth a credit! "I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review."

Wayyyy better than expected

Wow this book was great. It was something out of the ordinary. Looking at the cover you would think it was one of those rinkydink second hand stories with a subpar story and narrator. Well this was not the case. No spoilers here but it was a great listen, with a great narrator. Well worth the credit!!

Strong Willed Stubbornness and Attra timon

 I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. Drawn in in the first paragraphs of a loving sister , Aestrid, and her 14 yr old brother enjoying an afternoon at the lake until tragedy strikes and Aestrid’s life is forever changed. Veleif is the prince of his Viking clan...he mistakes Aestrid for a slave until he finds out she is the daughter of a rival clan. Marriage to join the two is suggested by his counsel...he laughs, but is intrigued by her. She is beautiful but stubborn, strong and i afraid. He tries to woo her and I have to say she was a bit too stubborn, although I like it’s when the heroine doesn’t immediately fall and get pushed around..but she went a little too far so ai dropped a star only for this at. The narrator was incredible! The voices emotion and it was listening to a play..he was fantastic If you like historical and very strong characters, fun and interesting secondary characters this is the book for you!

Great Historical Romance!

I found this listen to be captivating. It is my first "viking listen" and by a new to me author and narrator. I was truly impressed by the imagery and story. I loved the added humor. I loved all of the details the author wrote in the book and thought the narrator was wonderful with all of his various character voices and accents. I wasn't certain of the direction of the book when it started, but I absolutely loved it! I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. I will definitely listen to more books by this author and narrator.

Loved It

"I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request, via Audiobook Boom, and have voluntarily left this review."
I didn't think I would enjoy this but I did.I like how the arrogance was taken out of both the H and the h.There were many lol moments in the book that tamped down the battle scenes. The epilogue made me laugh so hard I cried. Some of the interchanges were just unbelievable but overall this is worth a listen. The narrator was very good and I was able to distinguish characters throughout the story.

Fast paced

Truly enjoyed this fast pace book. Narrator did an exceptional job and the characters are well rounded. The story takes you on a quick lively jaunt into a highly aggravated women’s tale of loss and then into her captures lure. That soon finds her wed and bedded and waking to find she rather stay the face a life in which she is just a thorn in her fathers side. Loved the pace of the book. I received this book at no charge in exchange for for an honest review. I can honestly say it is a 👍🏻. 😻

Truly Fantastic

Easily one of the best, if not the best historical romance books out there. I’ve listened to at least two dozen historical romance books and this is plot is unequaled. While the beginning is a bit slow, it’s more than worth the wait and does a great deal to establish the characters. The narration is fantastic and both main characters are dynamic, human and believable. The heroine is loved for her spirit and defiance which is not often the case within the genre. She had agency and a mind of her own which is respected and admired. Her dialogue is witty, genuine and narrated expertly. The hero is not a one-dimensional male brute, but rather has layers of temper, compassion, honour and strength. Narrated perfectly. The love scenes are some of the best - they manage to not be too graphic while also being intoxicating. They are limited, more so than most, but the length and build up make them that much more satisfying and plausible. There is a ferocity and reverence to them and unlike many historical romance novels, they are not boring, predictable or cringeworthy. Pure passion! There’s a great cast of supporting characters which enhance the story rather than detract. Plenty of humour and vivid descriptions that make every chapter unique and engaging. An absolute must-listen for anyone who loves genuine romance and an enthralling plotline. The love between the two characters is never overplayed and the arc of their story is captivating. A phenomenal tale from start to finish! Be sure to listen to the epilogue!
