The Pagan's Prize: A Viking Romance (Captive Brides, Book 3)

Walker Publishing
59

The bold Viking warrior Rurik traveled alone on a mission of conquest. But along the way a golden-haired captive inflamed him with longing. He took up his sword to defend her…then swore to claim her for his own.

A beautiful Russian princess betrayed by treachery, Zora spurned the powerful man who held her prisoner—and vowed never to yield. He had been sent as a spy to pave the way for her people’s surrender. But his furious hunger for her heated touch—and her aching need for his burning caress—led to a fiery passion that was a greater prize than any kingdom.

**Best Medieval Historical Romance of the Year Award from Romantic Times**

With the sheer strength of his muscular body, Crusader Guy de Warenne overpowered his captors and fled the hell-hole of the Syrian prison. Yet he couldn’t leave Damascus without rescuing the lovely violet-eyed “slave girl” who had saved his life by tenderly caring for his battle wounds. 

She is Leila, a raven-haired English beauty kidnapped in infancy, schooled in medicine by the wealthy physician who adopted her…and trained in the sensual delights of the harem. To Leila, the Crusader is a savage barbarian who ravaged her adopted homeland and ruthlessly carried her away to serve his own purposes. Yet, even in her fury, she is drawn to this man of unexpected tenderness and awakened to a raw, sensual power that will carry them both on a tumultuous journey into adventure, danger, and love.

OPERATION HERO

Promised in marriage to a brutal Norseman, Nora MacTorkil flees in terror the night before the wedding.  The daughter of the richest merchant in Dublin, she knows she must hide—but where?  In the moonlight, she makes a desperate run along the dock hoping to conceal herself aboard one of her father’s ships.  Until Nora trips and tumbles into the River Liffey, her cry for help cut off as the dark water closes over her head…


Many drunken nights have passed and still, Niall O’Byrne cannot free himself from memories of the woman who betrayed him and broke his heart.  The brother of Ireland’s most infamous rebel, he rode away from Glenmalure in a wild attempt to escape his misery and vowed to never love again.  Yet a half-drowned damsel in distress moves Niall so fiercely that he’ll do anything to protect her from the beast who would claim her.
