    • Once upon a time, there was a warrior maiden of reluctant femininity who fell in love with the slightly emo but always badass second son of a noble family.But this is not their story This is FIRES OF WINTER, a bucket of dead tree barf that was cobbled into really cheap toilet paper, the sort of thing Eowyn Faramir would use to wipe their dogs feet on a slushy winter morning Truly, this is one of the worst books I ve ever read It s not even bad in a funny way it s just Really, Really Annoying To [...]


    • This was my first romance novel ever And twenty four years later, it has a special place in my heart Okay, this is a bodice ripper It was written during the I like, I take era when heroes did rape heroines I am not defending that, I am just saying that is what was done I was twelve when I read it, and I didn t understand the mechanics of sex at all I couldn t figure out what went where yes I was that ignorant about sex I loved the adventure in this book Although Brenna does annoy some friends wh [...]

      Instagram Twitter Facebook PinterestIf you peruse the bodice ripper lists on , you will consistently see two names near the very top the list Kathleen E Woodiwiss and Johanna Lindsey These two authors might not be the best writers in the genre, but they are prime examples of the most lasting and the most successful I have a love hate relationship with Woodiwiss s books sometimes they re on on point, sometimes they miss the point but I d never actually read anything by Lindsey I intended to recti [...]


    • 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 qualities I want in a man I read them for the angst, love, and heartache I also love the realistic approaches she takes, and how rape was such an indiffere [...]


    • Ni siquiera voy a perder m s tiempo haciendo esta rese a del que perd leyendo el libro.IncoherenteIncomprensibleIntolerableNo lo recomiendo Fin


    • So I recently watched the incredibly awesome The 13th Warrior yet again, but for the first time since my dive into the old bodice rippers, and I saw the Norsemen heroes in a whole new light In other words, my pervy freak on for my male ancestors became highly relevant to my reading interests It got me thinking that I should probably come up with a personalized Viking BR hero yardstick.So I asked myself this Does the hero in this Viking BR make me want to be the lucky female thrall who gets ritua [...]


    • MAJOR SPOILERS I m becoming quite the spoiler these days So when this book started I was seriously thinking I was expecting an arranged marriage and then vikings attacked and ransacked Brenna s village and took her and several other women hostage What continued for quite some pages was rape, rape, rape, and wait for it Rape But of course Brenna acted so crazy and was so admired by the chieftain that no one touched her.Now I ve read plenty of books with rape, but I was just sitting there thinking [...]


    • Old school romance I swear, Fires of Winter still has the juice even though it was written 30 years ago O_OIt 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 romance Setting 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 H h meet long about 70 or 80 pages in Independent Celtic beauty, La [...]


    • In a nutshell I really disliked this book and I was sorely tempted to give it a 1 star rating but I couldn t My love and respect for Brenna were too intense to be ignored I don t deny that this could be a good and entertaining read for others, but the themes and plot elements were just not for my liking For one, I was not comfortable with the rampant rape scenes that kept on popping out in the story And, second, I hated with every fiber of my being the fact that adulterous relationships were tre [...]


    • Danielle has a brilliant review and plot summary done and as I couldn t add to it, I will just leave my opinion.These old Johanna Lindsey books are far better than some of her recent ones OK they have the rapes and the not too adorable Hero s but thats what make s them great Whether you are screaming at the Heroine to get some sense, or wanting to put your hands into the pages of the book and slap the Hero the point is you are gripped From the first JL hooks you with her great characters even if [...]


    • An old school historical bodice ripper with the requisite feisty heroine, Viking alpha male and throbbing manhood If you take into account the time is was written the 80 s it isn t a bad tale just a little dated by today s standards.


    • Loved this book Brenna es el personaje femenino con m s car cter que he le do hasta ahora Posiblemente el libro que m s me ha gustado de Johanna Lindsey junto con el segundo de su misma serie.


    • 2.5 stars, not quite a 3 A Viking romance book hmm until I joined , I didn t know such a thing even existed Then I signed up for a book challenge and I needed to read a book about Vikings Fires of Winter fit the category, so I sat down to read it.Fires of Winter is a fascinating glimpse of Viking life I mean, when I think of Vikings, I always thought of tall, blond, fierce warriors pillaging the lands around them This book paints a very different Viking society Sure, there is the raping and pill [...]


    • 1 I love the cover of this book2 There was soooo much rape Nearly every woman in this book was raped A lot Now, this is a book about vikings and raping and pillaging is their thing so I wasn t overly shocked BUT Many of the raped women liked the experience or at it didn t phase them This bothered me a lot.3 Putting the rape reluctantly aside I liked the characters in this book and there was an especially strong contingent of female roles 4 The pace in this story kept me interested There was plen [...]


    • Historical Romance The Book Club July 2015 Group Read Medieval I couldn t decide if I liked this book or not I had a difficult time gathering my thoughts in regards to the book Overall, it was great Johanna Lindsey s writing was at its prime at the time she wrote this It was very entertaining with the banters and antics of the main and side characters, and the many plot twists I have had no previous research on Vikings and I have not read a lot of Viking themed novels, romance and otherwise, so [...]


    • This is one of the first Romance books I read, and I tell you it got me hooked I now can t seem to get enough of Vikings, Pirates or Highlanders p This book has a great story line full of adventure The characters are very likable and strong willed It was entertaining to see them battle it out while their relationship was developing Brenna was kidnapped from her home by Vikings, and made a slave She was given to Garrick by his father in hopes that she would make him happy What follows is quite en [...]




    • Cantik, tomboy, di culik dalam pembantaian keluarga nya oleh musuh mereka orang Viking, Brenna di jadikan budak oleh para org Viking tersebut Di jadikan hadiah buat anak pemimpin mereka, GarrickBrenna jd budak pemberontak yg justru membuat Garrick jatuh cinta.Dengan setting sekitar tahun 851an, tidak banyak di harapkan kelembutan HR dan cinta yg berbunga2.Kekejaman bangsa Viking yg saat itu berperang dg bangsa Celtic di gambarkan cukup detail oleh Johanna Lindsey dengan plot cerita yg tidak memb [...]

    • Going back and reading an old favourite is sometimes like catching up with an old friend It makes you all nostalgic and warm and fuzzy Johanna Lindsey books are the romance books I started off reading, sneaking them from my mums bookshelf and hiding away in my room when I was a teenager I wonder sometimes how reading these may have affected mehahah.Fires of Winter is classic Johanna Lindsey style Proud woman, dominant man, all the things I come to love I will address if you don t like forced sed [...]


    • It s interesting how reading a work at one time in your life versus another can change your opinion Another of Lindsey s early books is one of my guilty pleasures and I don t use that phrase lightly because I don t really believe in them , because even when I read it now, I can see all the problems with it but I like it anyway Or maybe I respond to it is a accurate framing than liking it.Anyway, that s all to say that this is super, super rapey, and in a way that I found hard to read I intellec [...]


    • The Fires of Winter is a very absorbing, witty and sensual historical romance.Brenna Carmarham is not some simpering cowering maid, she has been raised by her father as a son She may be a quarter of the size of a Viking but give her a sword and she might prove a match Garrick is a Viking merchant who already had his heart broken by a woman When people with such conflicting and bold personalities are together, sparks are bound to ignite fire.The squabbles and quarrels between Brenna and Garrick w [...]


    • Maybe it is Lindsey s writing, but I feel I shouldn t like this book yet I couldn t put it down Don t get me wrong, the captor captive storyline is my fav, but the H is such an unreasonable jerk at times that i want to kill him He distrusts her because another broke his heart and treats her very coldly at times There are several scenes of RAPE as well The kind that cannot be termed forced seduction, where it is made clear that the heroine is not ready for the act Yet, he continues to consistentl [...]


    • I honestly did not think I would like this I love historicals, but I ve never tried any Viking centered romances, which naturally, includes dubious consent or straight out rape scenarios Plus, the heroine is a tomboyish beauty, whose spirit seems to warm every male Viking soul loins Along with men who seem to find the need to rape and the women still find pleasure in it , and cruel, coldhearted female supporting characters and villainesses are littered all over Making you think that maybe JL cou [...]


    • Must Read Book WARNING This book will make you throw it away Or feel to kick the hero, stab him, and buried him in the deep below Hahaha


    • 4 Viking stars Lady Brenna is a proud warrior Raised by her father like the son he never had, she is a skilled fighter and horseman She values her pride than her life And when her father betrothed her to a son of the much hated Vikings chief, she has to let go her pride and become the Viking s bride to protect her people But instead of a wedding, the Vikings destroy her village and take her hostage as their slave Garrett Haardrad is a cynical man who has given up on women and love Betrayed and [...]
