A Saxon maiden gets conquered by a brutish Danish warrior.

This is the first erotic, in fact any romance novel, set in this time period that I've read/reviewed and am looking to read more of.

I loved the author's slow, methodical pacing, starting at the beginning of the first scene which truly set the mood of what's taking place as well as showing readers all the fear, emotions and uncertainty of Aetherlin, her main character.

What starts out as Aetherlin and Hrald being almost adversaries slowly changes as the passion they begin to share keeps growing. Readers, I feel, will get thrown into her shoes as they begin to feel the almost raw emotions these two have for each other, until a crescendo is reached.

The dialogue, the character's actions and descriptions of the scenes are apparently quite accurate as far as I've found for this time period.

For giving her readers a sizzling hot read as they drink their morning cup of their favorite Joe, I'm giving Ms. Ashworth 5 stars.
