THE VIKING PRINCESS is a legendary romance filled with honorable Knights from King Arthur's Round Table, Salacious Pirates, and Brutal Vikings.
Everyone knows of Excalibur and King Arthur but few know of his brother-in-law, the Danish Viking Prince and warrior Holger Danske or his sword Cortana. The Viking Princess is a New Adult legendary retelling of folk-lore legend and Danish leader, Holger Danske, and his magical romance with the sorceress, Princess Morgaine Le Fey.
They met on a battlefield, poised against each other, but their attraction was more powerful than any sword, stronger than any warrior and more magical than Merlin.

Many tales have been told of Britain's King Arthur, France's King Charlemagne and Danish Prince Holger Danske. This is the tragic love story of Prince Holger and King Arthur's half-sister, the powerful sorceress Morgaine Le Fay.
Morgaine is willingly captured by Holger as his Vikings battle King Arthur's army, happy to be whisked off by the brutally beautiful Norse god when he appears to her as if by magic. A spell is woven between the two of them, and they quickly determine that they never want to be apart, traveling back and forth between his lands, Camelot and Avalon, where he receives the match to Excalibur, the sword Cortana. After much fighting and cajoling and pleading, King Arthur gives his blessing and announces an alliance with his former enemy. But there are people who vehemently oppose the union, not to mention a war against the Saxon's to win.
THE VIKING PRINCESS is the first book in the Viking Series by Kim Kasch. Even though this type of book is not usually not my cuppa, I found myself nonetheless enchanted by the story's integration of myth and history and legend to make an utterly new folklore. The overall story is an ancient one featuring the magic of King Arthur and Camelot, Merlin and Excalibur. I'd heard the name Morgaine Le Fay but never Holger Danske, so this was all very fun and exciting for me, especially after a brief online search had so little information on any relationship between the two of them.
This story was mystical and magical and super erotic yet with a storyline that stayed true to the basic facts I knew about these Arthurian events. I even suspended my longtime distaste of men with long hair just so I could mentally run my fingers through Holger's luscious blonde mane, which sounds like it could be used in a Pantene commercial. The story kept me intrigued and waiting for the shoe to drop on either Morgaine or Holger or both, given the odds that were stacked against them. And the end? Yes, I know it's labeled a "tragic" tale for a reason, but I still shed a tear!
Bottom Line: Pick this one up and allow yourself to be transported to another time and place for a while.
