The Viking she Would have Married is my first book by Lucy Morris. I was drawn to it as I love Viking history and strong female characters. The main character is Valda and she is the epitome of strong. Yet she also has a vulnerability to her that makes her a more believable and likeable character. I quickly learnt that Lucy Morris has a knack for combining the History of the time into the story superbly well. It certainly held my interest throughout. Thank fully this is not the mushy romance of old oh no this is a well rounded story that keeps the characters realistic and at the heart of the plot.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and am actually quite excited about the next book in the series.
