Publisher's Summary

The matter is settled: Aisling, a beautiful Gaelic lass living on the rocky coast of Ireland, is betrothed to a disgusting (and disgustingly rich) suitor - and the arranged marriage simply cannot be called off. Until it is...by a horde of Viking raiders led by their fierce leader, Cormac, who sweeps into town and sweeps Aisling off her feet.

Stolen away to a rough Viking settlement in Norway, Aisling will need to use all of her wits and wiles to free herself, protect her friend, save her captor's village - and win his heart in the process. Join Aisling for the adventure of a lifetime in a tale that is by turns funny, romantic, and filled with exciting detail from the Age of the Vikings!

Entertaining!

This book for me was an unexpected surprise. The Viking era is not one I look to listen to, but this one has an interesting story, and the narration by Luke Daniels is nothing short of amazing. The story is about Aisling, who on her wedding day is kidnapped and taken as a slave to a Viking settlement in Norway. Now having to care for Ragnar, the leader of the settlement, Aisling is adjusting to her new life, being watched by the sons of the leader and is attracted to one in particular. But will she be able to choose which one she stays with? Will she ever be set free to go back to Ireland? I loved Aisling, she is such a strong and feisty character. Her inner voice came through advising her which is something I can relate to. The sharp contrast between brothers is glaring, and makes the story that much more interesting. Throw in the humor of Brother Owen and we even have laugh out loud moments. With the visual background of Norway, this is a wonderful telling of the Viking Age with a little romance, a little humor and a lot of suspense!

Luke Daniels truly brings this story to life. He has a plethora of voices, each character easily distinguishable. I love his accents, his ability to voice male and female voices and even carry a tune! The book is a pleasure to listen to.

More than a romance

I found The Viking's Bride to be a refreshing style of romance. The lack of smutt in every chapter may deter some, however I found the dedication to a solid storyline to be better than most in the romance genre. The main character shows a depth and realism that is unforgettable. She isn't like those other frail damsels in distress. She comes to her own rescue now and then, making her seem strong and fiery. The performance by Luke Daniels was, as always, exemplary in every way.

Loved this!

Amazing listen! Amazing story full of action, romance, humor, and an intriguing cast of characters. This story moved at a good pace and all the twists kept me hooked and wanting to listen. I loved Aisling and Cormac, but my favorite character was Father Owen who often provided comic relief. Fantastic performance by the narrator, great accents and unique voices for each character and all delivered with plenty of emotion. I received a free review copy of this audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

Not what I expected, way to much filler

The story drags a LOT. Found it difficult to stay focused. Need female/male narrators to fully enjoy. Would probably return

The Viking's Bride

This was a pleasant surprise. Going into this book, I REALLY wasn't sure what to expect. I just couldn't get a bead on if I'd like it or not from the sample and blurb. But, the sample sounded good. I love Norse history and mythology. And, I haven't listened to anything by Luke Daniels that was bad, though he's fairly new to me. I'm glad I went for it. This book was a lot of fun. It was sprinkled with history, culture clash, and was about one woman navigating her way in a new land and new culture. It had humor and wit, battles and romance. This was my first introduction to authors James and Aasne Daniels.

I was also very different from anything I'd heard from Luke Daniels before. He always brings such energy and unique characterizations to his performances, that I knew he wouldn't disappoint. But, with this one I got to hear new voices, accents, and even singing. Another masterful performance. Totally enjoyed this book.

Wacky misunderstandings

I love Luke Daniels narration all the time, the accents and different characters are my favorite parts of any book. The story itself is super steamy but it's still fun. A good diversion for sure.

Standalone Story

Standalone Story.

Aisling is preparing for her dreaded wedding by hiding in the cellar, only to be abducted by a band of raiders and taken to their ship. Cormac is the dark, brooding man who saves her from being brutalized, but he still carries her away from her home. Once the boat reaches Norway Aisling is given to the ailing chief of the village as a slave. The chief has three sons who run the village - Cormac the brooding, Trygge the sweet and learned, and Rafn the Evil. If Aisling manages to survive her captors, can she ever become one of them?

If you've been looking for a great story with wonderful ties to Non-Greek/Roman mythology, this is the book for you.

Audio Review:
Luke Daniels embodies the characters he reads. His accents are well-thought-out and distinct.

The Viking's Bride

This book was well written and it has those great elements you look for in a book, action, adventure, betrayal and love. I love how they give you a wonderful picture of the time period and a beautiful descriptions of the landscape. Aisling is a wonder leading lady. Her bravery and quick thinking make her captors take notice of her in a good way. Having been captured, moved far from her home and now a slave Aisling must learn a new way of life and figure out how to fit in and who to trust. Luke Daniels does an amazing job with the narration on this book. This is a must read/listen!

Interesting and great narrattion

It was an interesting listening. With a little bit of angst and some funny parts.
Aisling was a great character, she is witty and strong and a little bit sassy. I love her inner voice and the ways this leads her.
Brother Owen was another character that adds the fun to the story.
The book has some twist that will have you on edge wanting to know what's going to happen.

The narrattion of Luke Daniels was pretty amazing, you could actually distinguish wich character was speaking because of his distintic voices. His performance made the book more enjoyable.
