Publisher's Summary

Juliana Arthur, the Viscountess Hawthorne, has been thrown out of her husband's estate and her marriage declared invalid. With a small son to care for, she desperately needs a strong hero to rescue them from poverty and suffering.

A Viking wasn't quite what she had in mind.

Arik Thorgrim is caught between worlds. After dying from a battle wound, he expects to find the glory of Valhalla, where he can dwell among the gods. Instead he's brought forward 1,000 years in time, to a beautiful woman who tempts him beyond reason. Juliana doesn't know what to do with this sinfully handsome Viking warrior who brings weapons into a ballroom and refuses to be tamed. Yet beneath his barbaric ways is a man of honor, a man who vows to face down her enemies and fight for her son's future.

But as Arik wages a battle against her heart, Juliana is afraid of loving a man whose time has already run out.

    "Viking Time Travel 😁"

    I enjoy time travel romances so I got excited about this book as soon as I read the publisher's summary. 😁

    This book keeps your attention throughout with memorable characters and a plot that doesn't disappoint This delightful story takes you on a fantasy journey where wishes & dreams mix with reality and the lines of time become blurred. It is heartfelt and charming with more of a lust to love progression that captivates. If you enjoy historical time travel adventures then don't hesitate on this book.

    Brad Wills is an exceptional narrator. He never disappoints me. 😋

    Note: This is an Adults only listen. It contains detailed sex and language.

    I received this book from the author, publisher, or narrator and am grateful to them for the opportunity to review. I am looking forward to the next book in this series.

    My favorite books are 'Historical Romance'. A good book takes you away from your everyday life & puts you in the middle of an adventure.

    "A beautiful, exciting story."
    What did you love best about A Viking for the Viscountess?

    This is my first book by author Michelle Willingham, but it definitely won't be my last. I am a fan. This book is brilliant, unique story line, well written and romantic. I loved it. I hope she puts the entire series on audiobook, because you don't want to put this book down.


    Which character – as performed by Brad Wills – was your favorite?

    Brad Wills delivers an outstanding performance. That is the difference between Mr. Wills and other narrators. Mr. Wills truly performs the books he narrates. He is creative with character voices, delivers the story with passion and care. I say care, because he really is intuitive as to the sensitivity of the storyline. Outstanding Brad Wills. Loved it.

    "Brad Wills!!!!!"

    Brad Wills brought Michelle Willingham's characters to life. I read the book but was intrigued when I heard he was her narrator. I could listen to him for hours. I hope she uses him for all of her books. I'll be looking g for his next narration for sure.

    "Entertaining historical romance with time travel."
    Any additional comments?

    A Viking For the Viscountess (A Most Peculiar Season #1) by Michelle Willingham is an entertaining historical romance with a unique spin on time travel. The time traveler is Arik Thorgrim, a Viking from the year 811. After dying on the battle field, he is saved by the gods and transported to Regency England to rescue a woman and her son from poverty. The lady in question is Juliana Arthur, the Viscountess Hawthorne, who was recently thrown out of her husband's estate with her young son. In true Viking style, Arik immediately takes charge to solve Juliana’s problems for her, all the while anticipating the great hereafter in Valhalla once this last mission for the gods is completed.<br/><br/>There are two elements to this story that I especially enjoyed: (1) the sweet relationship between Arik and Juliana's son, Harry – Arik never talks down to the boy or “baby” him like his mother does; and (2) the similarities between Arik and the missing son of a Duke who lives next to Hawthorne Manor – the best scenes are those between Arik and the Duke. What I didn’t enjoy were the numerous detailed sexual encounters between Arik and Juliana. I eventually started fast forwarding through the audio to avoid all the salacious details. <br/><br/>I listened to the Audible version of this book and narrator Brad Wills is simply outstanding. He accurately portrays Arik as a man who is no nonsense, rough around the edges, and a bit uncivilized due to being out of his time. For Julianna, Brad uses a breathy falsetto voice whose tone and manner is polished like you’d expect for a Viscountess. I received a copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest and unbiased review. In summary, I recommend this audiobook to anyone who enjoys time travel Highlander/Viking stories.<br/>

    "Great Story"
    Any additional comments?

    Really enjoyed this book. Very entertaining, engaging and enjoyable. I love Historical as well as Time-Travel stories so this was a win-win for me. I have read several of Michelle Willingham's books before but this is the first book I have listened to. It was worth every minute. It's a well written and creative story pulls you in immediately and never lets go.<br/><br/> Is it worth you time and credit? That's a definite, Yes. Really looking forward to the next book in the series.<br/><br/>The perfect blend of romance, betrayal, second chance's, honor, regrets, family and love. With a great HEA<br/><br/> Really liked how the author handled the time-travel in the story. Intertwining the 2 characters of Arik/Eric was creative.<br/><br/>Brad Wills did a really good job with the narration. This is the first time I have listened to him narrate a book. Nice voice. Clearly spoken with a nice even pace. While his male character voices were great. The slight accent to Arik's character was perfect. The high pitch of the female voices took a while to get used to. Occasionally his female voices made me wince. Especially in the beginning. Grelard's(?) voice was great for an elderly woman as was Harry's for a child. He did bring the character's and story to life through his narration. Overall very enjoyable<br/><br/>I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator or publisher.<br/>

    "Wonderful time travel book"
    Would you listen to A Viking for the Viscountess again? Why?

    No, I have too many other books to listen to.


    What other book might you compare A Viking for the Viscountess to and why?

    One of Amanda Quick's books. The story drew on my emotions and also helped me learn about Regency England.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Addrick was shot.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Not really


    Any additional comments?

    I loved the little boy and how Addrick interacted with him. I got this book via audiobook boom.

    I've rarely met an audio book I didnt like. I love rom-com, cozy murder mystery, and self-help.

    "Wonderful Romance"
    Any additional comments?

    This is a lovely romance about a Viking who finds himself thrust forward 1000 years into the relatively modern 1800’s. The writer does a great job with Arik’s character, a Viking who wants to use force to resolve most issues but is extremely gentle with the woman and child he falls in love with and will protect above all. I also found humor in Arik tendency to always want to reaching for his weapon at inappropriate times for the 1800's. I think if you like a lighthearted, easy listening romance, this is a great audiobook. The narration by Brad Wills is great but some of the female voices can use a little work. I was given this audiobook for free in exchange for an honest review.

    "Great Historical Time Travel Romance"

    I was asked to read this book & give an honest review. It is not normally the historical era (the Regency) which interests me but this is incidental. The Viking hero "died" in battle & instead of being transported to Valhalla, he ends up being in the Regency period, rescuing a disinherited Viscountess from the sea in a storm. An erotic adventure starts the relationship with the hero mistaking the heroine for a lady love he lost but from this stems a new fragile relationship with the heroine & her son.

    Trying not to reveal too many spoilers but, it is a good story of redemption & trust despite differences in time & culture. I do recommend it - the style is easy to follow & the master, Brad Wills, weaves his magic on the story narration too. A winner!!
