Howdy booklovers! Welcome to my stop on the tour for Tempted by the Runes! as always a massive thank you to Rachel of Rachels Randoms Resources for having me on the tour!
Born centuries apart. Bound by a love that defied time.
She couldn’t believe her eyes. The runes were normally so reliable and she had never doubted them before.
Madison Berger is visiting Dublin with her family for a Viking re-enactment festival, when she chances upon a small knife embedded in the banks of the Liffey. Maddie recognises what the runes on the knife’s handle signify: the chance to have her own adventures in the past.
Maddie only intends to travel back in time briefly, but a skirmish in 9th century Dublin results in her waking up on a ship bound for Iceland, with the man who saved her from attack.
Geir Eskilsson has left his family in Sweden to boldly carve out a life of his own. He is immediately drawn to Maddie, but when he learns of her connection to his sisters-in-law, he begins to believe that Fate has played a part in bringing them together. Amidst the perils that await on their journey to a new land, the truest battle will be to win Maddie’s heart and convince her that the runes never lie…
Did someone say…. VIKINGS?!
This book is wonderfully written and once you get started it’s hard to put down. Time travel?! Hell yeah! Hot Viking hero?! GIMME! A gorgeous love story? Yassss! What’s not to love about this story. I was unaware that this was a series but each can be read as a standalone so I’ll definitely be diving into the others very soon. I really loved Geir, I felt like he was such a gentleman towards Maddie, he was a multi dimensional character that made me want to keep turning the page.
Overall, I’d highly recommend to those who love a bit of historical fiction with a dash of magic
