by Lori Soard
Christian Historical Viking Romance

Rok Erikson comes from a long line of Viking warriors. The tradition of his upbringing, his new Christian faith and the code of honor that says he must protect his family at all costs wage war within him. He and his brothers go on a mission to kill Jarl Van of Colby before the man can make another attempt on their father’s life. The code of honor insists that they either kill or be killed, however, there are dark forces at work of which Rok is unaware. Leani is the daughter of the jarl Rok believes is making attempts on his father’s life. When the eldest brother reaches her village ahead of Rök and the rest of the party, he kills her father and defiles her frail sister. Enraged, and fearing for her own life, Leani drives a silver dagger into his neck. Leani is captured by the vile Eriksons and forced to leave behind her broken sister as they take her to face a trial for killing the Viking who murdered her father. Leani’s life hangs in the balance as she struggles with her guilt over taking the life of another and tries to find forgiveness where none should exist. Her faith will be tested to the limits as she fights a growing attraction to her enemy, tries to hide the truth about her identity, uncovers a treachery that runs deep within the Erikson clan, and sees how God can come to your rescue even when all hope seems lost…

What Readers Are Saying

“With a story involving Vikings, you know there will be violence. I wasn’t sure what to expect. The author did a wonderful job of being true to telling a Viking’s tale without going overboard with blood and gore. It was tastefully done. Vivid descriptions of the scenery. Sweet romance. I also liked the struggle the characters faced with their beliefs and family traditions. Bought today and just finished it. I really enjoyed the story. 🙂 Well done!!” ~ Kimberli, Amazon reader


Characters with Courage and Faith

“This is a short, quick read with a sweet romance. However, it deals with issues of faith, loyalty, family, tradition, and love in a way that causes the reader to think about those issues in his or her own life. I found Viking Christians intriguing, as I had never thought about Vikings being anything but violent plunderers. The characters face the choice of family or faith, maybe even life or death. Taking a stand for the Christian God in a family and culture that worships many gods took courage and strong faith. These characters had both.” ~ Lillian Ammann, author of Dream or Destiny


“This is a sweet romance that will pull at your heart strings. Rök Erikson’s new found Christian faith clashes against the traditions of his Viking family; he fights against falling in love with Leani and the duty he feels for his family that demands he avenge his brother’s death. While Leani’s life hangs in the balance, she feels guilty for taking the life of another and places her punishment in the hands of her savior.
As Rök’s and Leani’s faith is tested over and over, Lori Soard handles these characters’ inner and outer struggles like a pro.” ~ Kim Cox, author of All This Time
