When Slayde pulls Llyrica from the ocean off the shores of Kent, how she arrived there from Denmark becomes the first of many questions. Her beauty and alluring voice evoke a deep and troubling need in him, but he must stay focused on the job at hand: Ridding England of the last of the Viking raiders.
Llyrica is now a stranger in a strange land, on a mission to fulfill a deathbed promise. But, she must now also find her missing brother. This man, Slayde, known as The StoneHeart in his country, seems determined to block her at every turn. And yet she can't help but be drawn to the affectionate, loving side of him that awakens when he sleeps, the sleepwalker.
Unknown to both Llyrica and Slayde, each will use the other to accomplish their quests. Both will also fall under Llyrica's love spell, that of the Songweaver.
Set in the year 895, the story of Loveweaver happens among actual events. It was a time when many Vikings were settling peacefully in England while other would-be conquerors still sought to overtake the country. A romance between a Viking woman and English (Saxon) man was certainly not unheard of, but might still raise eyebrows.
The fact that Llyrica makes a living as a weaver appeals to those who value the importance of feminine creativity, cultural arts, and using those talents to carve out a place in the world.
Slayde depicts a man struggling to live up to a character of military might, while denying a life he would rather live, that of an inventor, a dreamer, a builder.
Llyrica's presence reignites in Slayde a reason to be done with war, to open the way for peace and his love for the beguiling weaver.
