☆ The Viking's Touch ô Download by ê Joanna Fulford Me ha encantado, me la cort fue las ltimas p ginas, despu s de estar juntos todo fue muy r pido.
Ella enviud despu s de haber tenido unos a os de tormentos junto a un hombre que la obligaba bajo fuerza a estar con l y la manten a prisionera en su propia casa, dej ndole todo e inclu do su peque o hijo de seis a os Ahora tiene rond ndole los talones otro hombre cortado con la misma tijera, y ela se niega fervientemente Y encuentra su salida en un barco vikingo que llega a sus costas Unos sangrientos mercenarios que est n all para reparar su barco antes de seguir su destino, que se retrasa un poco cuando la bella dama de la ciudad le hace una proposici n que este guapo y fuerte vikingo no puede rechazar.
After the deaths of his wife and son due to an epidemic that swept through his lands, Wulfgar and his men have spent the last six years as mercenaries Wulfgar feels guilty that he had spent so much time away from his family and swears that he will never get emotionally close to anyone again.
Anwyn lost her husband a few months ago and rejoices in it He had been a brutal man who enjoyed inflicting pain on her She has no intention of marrying again, but the neighboring lord, Ingevar, has designs on her and her land.
After a storm damages his ship Wulfgar lands near Anywyn s home to make repairs The neighbor tries to run him off, but Anwyn intercedes and invites Wulfgar and his men to stay as long as they need to for their repairs After receiving threats, Anwyn first hires Wulfgar and his men as additional protection, but then proposes a marriage of convenience to protect her from forcible marriage to someone else.
Anwyn s experiences with men have been limited to types like her late husband, but she senses there is something different about Wulfgar It doesn t take long for her to discover that he is both honorable and amazingly kind It doesn t hurt that he s darned good looking too I liked the courage that she showed in standing up to Ingevar, and also in overcoming her fears to ask Wulfgar for his help Wulfgar has spent the last six years actively seeking death, only to be defeated by his own abilities I loved the way that Anwyn gets under his guard and he finds himself wanting to help her He lets her know that he won t stay, even if they marry, but that he ll make sure she s well defended before he leaves.
Wulfgar s kindness to her and her son soon has Anwyn falling in love with him She dreams of him staying, even though he has made it clear that he won t Wulfgar also finds himself dreaming of staying, but his certainty that he would make a terrible husband and father forces him to continue his plans to leave.
Wulfgar nearly loses everything because of his fears, whereas Anwyn does a much better job of leaving her past behind I really enjoyed seeing her confront Wulfgar about his fears and point out what he is doing to them both His ah ha moment came almost too late, but he did manage to save the day.
I did get frustrated with his actions regarding Ingevar, as by giving in to Anwyn regarding his fate he set up the trouble that came at the end He d have done better to follow his instincts, at least the second time, and explained to her why he did it.
I did enjoy the epilogue a lot It was fun to see them a year down the line.
This was no great romance In trying not to sound too cliche this book talked to much Too many words, not enough action This is suppose to be a Viking world, yet the battles were humdrum Good grief The sexual tension between the two leads was good at first, but their love was described so lackluster He made love to her and afterwards he watched her sleep Oh my heck You go through than half the book already knowing that the two of them hook up and that is all you get Some interactions were detailed, but not much On another note of lack luster detailing, one battle took only 2 pages to start and finish yet a whole chapter before of the guys going over plans The climax of the book is the last 2 chapters yup that s it I felt let down I read the book for pure entertainment purposes which is what I tend to read in the Summer something to read and finish, that doesn t waste a lot of my time but I just don t know if this one was worth any time at all.
I m kind of torn on this one In some aspects it was enjoyable, but the areas where it lacked did so in such a glaring way that it marred said enjoyment to a significant degree The romance was lackluster, any action negligible, and the fact that they spared the life of the villain repeatedly only to have him keep trying to stab them both in the back No I m sorry, no Any Viking dumb enough to spare the life of a duplicitous scumbag like that will eventually get run through This could have been so much better.

I was relieved when I finally finished this book I don t know why it was called The Viking s Touch Yes, he was a Viking, but that s the only Scandinavian thing about this book It doesn t even take place in Norway, but the British Isles, I believe So that was a huge letdown for me.
But that s beside the point My main problem with this book is that it reads like a manual The author doesn t let us figure out the characters emotions for ourselves she constantly has to tell us, His face showed anger, then a touch of sadness And enough with her pulse increased a bit I was so tired of hearing about racing pulses.
I felt absolutely nothing for the characters They were a tortured heroine hero, but I really didn t care.
The Viking s Touch appears to be a sequel to an earlier book by the same author, but it can be read as a standalone novel I know because I hadn t read the previous story My usual historical romances tend to tend to be set mainly in the Regency period, so this was a bit of a change for me It took a little while to get into, but overall I thought it was a good story with strongly drawn characters A bit violent and bloodthirsty than your average Regency, I have to admit, but as a change I did enjoy it.
The protagonists, Anwyn and Wulfgar were both sympathetic characters, but carrying a great deal of emotional baggage from their pasts Ignvar is maybe a character who is a bit too black to be real as he doesn t appear to have a single redeeming feature, but on the bright side you do feel like cheering when he finally gets his comeuppance, and this sort of book is really about making you feel good, so I guess that van t be a bad thing His Old Life Shattered, Wulfgar Ragnarsson Lives Only For The Moment, Cheating Death And Growing Rich As A Legendary Mercenary His Heart May Be Frozen, But His Desire Burns Hot For Courageous Widow Lady Anwyn, Who Needs His ProtectionFor The Safety Of Her Son, Anwyn Will Risk Everything Even Giving Herself To A Viking Warrior Who Teaches Her Not All Men Are Monsters Although He Shows Little Sign That He Will Ever Again Be Capable Of Love Need a smokin Viking not afraid to show some brutalism and getting what he wants This story is for you Want a heroin that matches the hero in every way Nopego elsewhere for that Anwyn was drab to meI dunno what jk.
She was totally drone She bored me to watching paint dry But anyhow, it was a good read A nice example of the genre, but it left me feeling a bit meh.
Gostei, mostra um pouco da realidade da poca Apesar desse se passar 27 anos depois, a realidade das mulheres tinha avan ado muito pouco Uma mulher rica n o era deixada em paz, o ass dio para casar era arbitr rio Gostei de Anwyn n o daquele tipo tosco e totalmente dependente de algu m Wulfgar de assustador n o tinha nada, foi muito doce para um viking da poca Valeu o tempo.
