I was drawn to reading her new novel Norse Jewel for one simple reason. I like reading about the Viking getting the girl.
Norse Jewel did not disappoint me. I was quickly drawn into the tale of Helena, a Frankish (French) thrall (slave) and her unshakable desire to return to her homeland after being abducted by Danes. Gina does a wonderful job of balancing historical accuracy with the sensibilities of current day readers. Not often do we have a romance, especially a historical romance that includes a single father. Having Hakan the Viking as a single dad trying to get custody of his son in the first millennium isn't standard romance fare, but I loved it.
Once you read Norse Jewel, I am sure you will be as pleased as me to learn that a follow up book is coming! Click the Picture to enter the blog tour giveaway!
