World of de Wolfe Pack: Breton Wolfe (Kindle Worlds Novella) (The Wolves of Brittany Book 1) By: Victoria Vane
"She vowed to defy him to her dying breath... but passion blurs the line between love and hate...
The bluest blood and the hardest heart... at least when it comes to marriage... The daughter of a duke and granddaughter of a king, Adele of Vannes was bartered at birth in a marriage treaty for the sole purpose of producing a royal heir. When her philandering husband is slain by Norse marauders, Adele’s only desire is to retire to the peace and solitude of a cloister—until coerced to wed a savage Norseman. Adele knows that her beloved Brittany needs a strong hand to survive, but how can she ever reconcile her bitterness and hatred with the desire she feels for her avowed enemy?
She’s the jewel he seeks for his Breton crown...A Barbarian bent on building a dynasty, Valdrik Vargr, ‘the Norse Wolf,’ is renowned for both his bravery in battle and shrewdness in statecraft. Setting his sights on claiming the kingdom of Brittany, he knows that siring sons from royal blood would solidify his hold, but the woman he would claim as his queen refuses to have him. Will he fuel her hatred by taking her to his bed, or will the man who strikes terror in the hearts of men be reduced to wooing his bride?"
This was a interesting historical Viking fiction romance. I did find it somewhat predictable but
still the read will keep your attention to the very end. It was something to read how this 'Norse Hunter' [Valdrik] would be able to gain the attention of Duchess Adele especially now that he was now over the 'Kingdom of Brittany.' Now, that the Duchess Adele husband has died will she be able to except what Valdrik had to offers her? I found the characters very well developed, colorful and oh so believable helping to make the read definitely a quick descriptive, colorful page turner. When it all comes together at the end will these two [hero and heroine] ever be able to fully trust each other? This is where I say to get the whole story the reader will have to pick up "Breton Wolfe" to get the whole presentation of a good story.
Thank you for the novel from the author for my honest opinion.
