    Johanna Lindsey novels are always such guilty pleasures There's so much wrong with them but I take them for exactly what they are fiction There's just something about the way Lindsey writes that takes me back into time with warrior heroes and strong spitfire heroines I don't read them for relationship advice nor do I look to her heroes for ualities I want in a man I read them for the angst love and heartache I also love the reali

Fires of winter

A primitive abandon that leaves her breathless igniting fires of passion that blaze through the cold Nordic nights and forge the unbreakable bonds of a fiery eternal love. Old school romance I swear Fires of Winter still has the juice even though it was written 30 years ago OOIt ll immediately hook you and not let go if you can get passed two of the most stubborn headstrong protags you ll ever meet in romanceSetting up a big misunderstanding plot line with a heavy hand you know exactly how this story is going to go within 10 pages But Lindsey s viking tale really doesn t get started until the Hh meet long about 70 or 80 pages inIndependent Celtic beauty Lady Brenna is an oddity to be sure walking around in men s trousers and trained to war like any son of a chieftain But she s none the less willing to submit to her father s wishes of being married off to a Viking to make peace because she loves him so However the Vikings entered the deal under false pretenses and on the day of her father s death they strike with a fury killing and taking captive all those Brenna love Garrick Haardrad has no idea the plans his father has made of striking the hated Celts And he has no idea that he s been gifted with a new slave a lovely dark haired maiden who instantly fires him up on numerous levels It isn t long though till he realizes this slave would need tamingand that he might enjoy the effortDespite her anger at her circumstances part of Brenna instantly wishes things were different between Garrick and she that they would have indeed been introduced to be man and wife but his hated father ruined all that with his cruel raid and the gorgeous Viking s determination to think of her nothing but his property rankles even So she resolves to never submitIndeed if circumstances were different Garrick and Brenna would have made a happy match but fate it would seem had other plans well fate helped along by selfish and self serving people all around them It will take nothing but true love to burn through all the hatred and misconstrued circumstances they find themselves in if they have the courage to learn to trustLike I said this book is old school brutish men taking what they want with the big misunderstanding running the majority of the plot What makes this one a bit different is the strong willed heroine although almost too willful for my tastes If they had just been honest with each other from the beginning they would have saved themselves a lot of heart ache But then where s the fun in that P Srsly I wanted to bang their heads together for believing everyone else around them but each other but at least they made me feel I hate when characters are so boring you could care less what happens to themListen these kinds of books aren t for everyone but Lindsey was once a master in her day and this book and series is one of the reasons why I read Fires of Winter eons ago and still remembered much of it even before my recent reread That s saying a hang of a lot since I cant remember some of the plots and characters of books I read only weeks ago Her novels once had a certain kind of thrill and sad to say it s been long gone from her recent releases If you want to know what made this genre what it is today read one of her oldies She definitely had the magic If you need a rec for one other than this because it isnt necessarily one of her best imo just ask I ve read them all 45 out of 5Interesting note on the old Joanna Lindsey cover art she didnt like that women were always the ones that were half naked on romance novel covers so she insisted it be reversed on hers bucking industry standards She won God bless ya woman Oh and ever heard of Fabio Pretty much because of her books P

are too high for an author who is in the pantheon of the genre with her backlist never out of print I d kinda like her books to be seriously good Not asking for brilliance here Some three dimensional
