    One thought on “Defiant in the Viking's Bed”

    1. All due apologies to Ghostbusters, but I've quit better books than this.Seriously, is it too much to ask for a Viking romance where the characters don't dialogue like a Regency? And that's not touching the cardboard backdrop, onslaught of names, don't-blink-or-you'll-miss-em battle scenes, or total lack of 'feel' to a Dark Ages story. Just adding swords & naming everyone Erik, Leif, or Halfdan doesn't make a quality Viking tale. On the plus side, this made me want to rewatch 13th Warrior for [...]

    2. This book would have been a lot more fun to read had I not kept wondering whether or not the two main characters were on drugs. Seriously, this shit was all over the place. She's happy, she's sad, she's content, she's crying, she's yelling, she's timid, she's indignant, she's trembling, she's flirty, she's shy, she's smiling, she's disgusted, she's depressed. I was getting to a point where I felt like I wasn't going to be able to take anymore. I was shocked when I discovered it was only 288 page [...]

    3. Una historia romántica, sin mayores pretensiones, pero que se lee muy bien ya que la autora, con un estilo muy ágil, logra mantener el interés de principio a fin con diálogos bien elaborados, que permiten caracterizar a fondo los sentimientos y frustraciones de los personajes. Lamentablemente, tiene un final algo flojo, que no está a la altura del resto de la novela.

    4. *I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*I suspect what attracted me to this book was its cover, which is beautiful. The synopsis indicates a story full of potential but, sadly, it never really came throughThis is the third book in a series and I got the impression that there is a common story to all the books, relating to the villains and the war, but it's not necessary to read the previous ones.The story begins with the hero Leif Egilsson rescuing Lady Ragnhild and [...]

    5. When I first saw this book, I was intrigued to find a novel about Vikings or Norse people. Since most romance novels take place in England, this came as a welcome change. Plus, I love the cover.Astrid (love that name) is high born but her parent's have died and her guardian is her horrible uncle. Leif is a Lord or Jarl, as they are called. He meets Astrid and is instantly drawn to her. Astrid accepts Leif's offer to become his mistress to avoid a horrible marriage. I cannot blame her for this, w [...]

    6. Os livros estão longe de ser perfeitos, mas gosto da escrita de Joanna Fulford. Ela retrata bem a época, seus mocinhos Vikings são cabeças duras, mas amolecem fácil. (view spoiler)[- Lief foi o mais teimoso até agora. Só no final pediu desculpas, por erros que cometeu desde o início e porque Astrid não facilitou as coisas. Ela o enfrentou e jogou várias verdades na sua cara. - Gostei de Astrid, se ser mulher até hoje não é fácil, quem dirá naquele período? Dentro das pouquíssima [...]

    7. 3,5 La novela está bien, es entretenida y te lleva a los tiempos vikingos sin poder evitarlo, pero a mí se me hizo bastante predecible y eso le ha restado un poco de fuerza a la trama. La autora sabe como meterte de lleno en las aventuras de estos bárbaros y disfrutar de ellas, pero un poco más de intriga hubiese sido perfecto ;)Lo que destaco de este libro es la naturalidad con la que está escrito. La autora da ese toque a la novela que hace que te creas lo que lees y lo disfrutes mucho. S [...]

    9. I am loving this new trend of Vikings! There seem to be a lot of Viking books coming out recently and, since I love Viking romances, I'm absolutely over the moon about it. Who can say no to a strong and sexy Viking? That's right, no one! And, despite these high expectations, Defiant in the Viking's Bed doesn't disappoint. It was a wonderful romance, full of thrills, misunderstandings, secrets, and hot Vikings.Astrid was a great character. She was caught up in the middle of a war that she wanted [...]

    10. I'm a complete sucker for a Viking, so I snagged this book immediately when I saw it available for review - and I am so pleased that I did! This historical gem is well written and easy to fall in love with. Leif and Astrid are a fantastic couple and I had a great time joining in on their adventure.I found Astrid a great leading lady. So often in historical romances, the women are demure and shy, but this hellion of a woman gave her Viking a run for his money. She is strong and even-headed, which [...]

    11. 3.5 starsWhen I requested this book from Netgalley, I didn't know it was the third in a Victorious Vikings series by Joanna Fulford The great thing is I didn't feel like I was missing anything at all and it's made me curious about the pervious book in the series.In Defiant in the Viking's Bed we get a sense of Astrid and Leif before everything becomes on betrayal after another. Yes, this is one of those historical romance books where almost to the end the H/h are reluctant to say "I love you". L [...]

    12. I admit my penchant for the Vikings, but this book didn´t engage me at all because the female protagonist is an idiot, and since I believe that much of a man can be understood knowing the woman he loves Ammetto il mio penchant per i vichinghi, ma questo libro mi ha preso proprio poco perché la protagonista é un'idiota, quindi siccome io credo che molto di un uomo di possa sapere conoscendo la donna che amaTHANKS TO NETGALLEY AND HARLEQUIN FOR THE PREVIEW!

    13. "Nobody does Vikings as well as Fulford. This marks the start of a new trilogy for her: Victorious Vikings. Book one is an engaging, thrilling and action-packed adventure about a hero chased by inner demons and the feisty heroine willing to fight for his love. Readers will love the clash of temperaments and the quest for justice." RT Book Reviews, rated 4 stars

    16. Ancienne enseignante, la Britannique Joanna Fulford a eu la chance de se consacrer, à partir de 2009, uniquement à sa passion de l’écriture, et tout particulièrement à la romance historique. Malheureusement, elle nous a quittés en 2013, à l’âge de 60 ans, et la romance historique a ainsi perdu une grande dame, au talent plus que prometteur.Sur le site internet qui lui est dédié, Joanna s’est adressée à ses lecteurs, auxquels elle rappelle Do not put your life on hold : pursue y [...]

    17. [warning Spoiler]The start of this book is a bit hard to read, I really don’t go into violence against women, especially when it is their lover, but I persisted with this book and I am glad I did although the rough treatment of Astrid at first was hard to stomach Leif never did anything to hurt her and his actions are explained in detail later in the book. Defiant in the Viking’s bed is full of romance and action and extremely entertaining especially with Astrids defiant attitude.The PlotAst [...]

    18. 3.25 starsDEFIANT IN THE VIKING’S BED is the third storyline in Joanna Fulford’s Victorious Vikings historical romance series.

    20. J'ai lu le tome 2 avant celui-ci car c'était un SP. Malgré tout, je n'ai pas été perdu pendant ma lecture car Finn le frère de Leif et héro du tome 2 ne fait qu'une apparition. ici nous nous concentrons sur le couple Leif et Astrid. Je l'ai un peu moins apprécié que le tome 2 , mais cela reste une très bonne histoire et joanna fulford reste une de mes auteures chouchous.J'avoue que pas un seul moment, je n'ai changé de camp, je suis resté fidèle au personnage d'Astrid qui a bien rais [...]

    21. This book took me by surprise. I really enjoyed it. I loved the characters and the plot.Leif was a really deep character with things in his past he couldn't let go of. I was brought to the end of the book on the edge of my seat waiting to see how the relationship with him and Astrid would end. Their relationship changed throughout the story. It was sweet for the most part with some hot and steamy scenes thrown in. I think Astrid was really likable, not just the shy woman falling for the man like [...]

    22. DEFIANT IN THE VIKINGS BED by Joanna Fulford is an interesting Historical Romance set in the Dark Ages. #Victorious Vikings Book #1 Trilogy. This is Leif Egilsson and Lady Astrid's story. Fast paced and filled with deceit, betrayal, treachery,and passion. Sensual tension jumps off the page as you follow these two unlikely people on a journey of passion and trust. A victorious Viking, no man could defeat him, but Lady Astrid would defy him and bring him to his knees or take his heart!! Leif was c [...]

    23. The first Lady Astrid saw Leif Egilsson was when he came and rescued her princess from Jarl Hakke. Once returned to their homes where Astrid was Ranghild's lady-in-waiting, both Astrid and Leif developed feelings for each other; then Astrid was forcibly returned to her uncle while Leif was away to be married to a brute of a man. When Leif risks all to rescue her, they are caught and he becomes a thrall, the lowest of the low. Astrid's uncle forces her to convince Leif that she wants no part of h [...]

    24. Par son style d’écriture et son rythme, l’auteur nous entraine dans son roman bien que l’on peut facilement deviner les choses.Les personnages principaux sont attachants mais pas convaincant. Lui, Leif, ne m’a donné l’impression d’être un viking, mais plutôt un guerrier lambda. Elle, je l’ai trouvée un peu passive. Il manque du piquant entre ces 2 personnages.Il est difficile de croire à la vraisemblance de certains faits.On croit facilement à sa capture, mais la manière do [...]

    25. Another cracking, action-filled Viking saga from Joanna Fulford. When Leif is captured by an enemy and treated like a dog, he believes he has been betrayed by the beautiful and spirited Astrid. Once he escapes, he extracts his revenge by capturing Astrid in turn and treating her as his slave including bedding her. I know some people view Mills & Boon Historicals as trashy, but I always find them a good read with more at their heart than a love story. This is the first novel in what was meant [...]

    26. 2.5 Stars – Moderate SteamDefiant in the Viking’s Bed does not deliver. I was bored. The romance between Astrid and Leif is acceptable - neither epic nor inspiring.Having never read a Viking historical before, I was hoping for gritty, intense, unique and interesting. Instead, this story was pedestrian and bland.I might add that there is only ONE orgasm in this Viking’s bed. (Poor, unsatisfied Astrid!) This glaring deficiency of sensual skills makes Leif a hard hero to commend.PassC courtes [...]

    27. A high 3 stars. This had sparks, steaminess, some suspense, evil villains, spunk, good personalities, self-discovery, emotions, and a good HEA. This would be something I wouldn't mind reading again, but more for the relaxing lazy-day read. It definitely keeps you interested but doesn't quite pull you in all the way. This was my first read into this series and I would definitely like to read more and see what happens with the other characters. I liked the action that was thrown in too, although i [...]

    28. Ben scritto, coinvolgente, la storia di Astrid e Leif è una variante "vichinga" di Romeo e Giulietta. parlando di vichinghi, ovviamente, lui ammazza tutti e se la carica sulle spalle salpando verso il tramonto.Meno male che alla fine, ma proprio alla fine, Astrid si palpa la schiena e si rende conto di avere ancora una spina dorsale.L'inizio parte bene ma la scrittura perde vigore man mano che ci avviciniamo alla fine e la conclusione è proprio anticlimatica.Si ringrazia NetGalley per la genti [...]
