My Thor's Day Viking Reading


Obsession. Treachery. Revenge. Redemption. Certain themes resonate across the centuries.

In ninth-century Ireland, Selia is a girl on the verge of womanhood, frustrated by the confines of her gender and resentful of the freedom her brother boasts of. Intelligent and resourceful in a time when neither is valued in a female, she longs for an escape from her sheltered existence. Fascinated by the tales of Viking raids told by her maidservant, Selia’s hunger for independence is fed through the stories of heathen ferocity she hears at the woman’s knee.

A decision to sneak to the city’s harbor to view the Viking longships leads to an encounter with Alrik Ragnarson, a charismatic Viking warlord whose outward beauty masks a dark and tortured mind. With the knowledge that her father is about to announce her betrothal to a man she doesn’t love, Selia marries Alrik and within a day is on the longship bound for Norway and a new life.

While Selia’s relationship with her new husband grows, her friendship with his brother Ulfrik grows as well. And as Alrik’s character flaws come to light and tension mounts between the two brothers, Selia begins to have misgivings about her hasty marriage . . . especially when a secret from the past is revealed, one that threatens to destroy them all.

As Einarsson Chieftain, Mista protects those who have sworn fealty to her. Although she captures the handsome warrior wearing the enemy's chain mail, she spares him, making him a slave until he is proven innocent...or not. The fact he seems slightly deranged takes nothing away from his sexy good looks.

Gabrielle, a lawyer, begs Ivak to help get her brother out of prison. Aided by the Cajun LeDeux family and their chief looney bird, Tante Lulu, Ivak reluctantly agrees.

Death Blow by Jianne Carlo

Can a mere Viking break the curse of a sea god?

Cursed by the sea-god Ægir to be burned at the stake, Lady Nyssa seeks the one man who can save her--the warrior who bears the mark of the Saracen. When she finds a Viking warrior wounded and senseless on a beach, she knows he is her savior. But Ægir’s wrath extends to others in her life as well. He’s killed her father and stepmother, turned her stepbrother into a mountain lion, and imprisoned her people. And worse, he’s cursed any man who lays with her to have his manparts wither and die.

Konáll has traded coin a-plenty to gain a wife with lands, the daughter of the King of Moray. He expects a refined, comely, trainable damsel, not a doomed warrior princess with the strength of a giantess who cannot bear the touch of a man. But once he learns more about this woman who speaks to talking mountain cats and hides as a peasant among the rabble, he cannot deny his feelings. There’s more than one way to breech a maidenhead, and if teaching her the ways of a woman’s pleasure with a carved ivory dildo is what it takes to make her his, then he’s more than happy to challenge the wrath of a god…

It's not easy being a Vampire Angel.

No one knows that better than Trond Sigurdsson. In the centuries since he last went out drinking and wenching with his Viking buds, Trond has been a gladiator, a cowboy, a ditch digger . . . even a sheik.

The "cop" part of Nicole tells her there's something bizarre about her gorgeous godlike teammate.

A Viking's Return by Cassandra Zara

In an ancient time, a young girl waits for her lover to return. Despite Eydis' best efforts, she knows she will be married off soon to another. Will Arlan return in time, and will he still be the man of her dreams?

This 4500 word story features a young couple in love and their steamy romance, with two love scenes showing the passion of youth and the excitement of reunited lovers.

Eydis was pretty, and she knew that she could not wait for Arlan forever. Even though she insisted that she be able to wait for the boat to return, it had been over a year since it had left, and some of the men of the local villages were quite insistent. Her father was sympathetic, telling men that came with dowries that she wasn't ready yet. Her mother was gradually trying to convince her to find a husband, someone to take care of her. She said that it was summer love, and that sometimes these things weren’t meant to be. She knew that if she settled with another man, if she had his children, Arlan would never forgive her, and she would never be truly happy. She walked carefully when she was off her father’s farm- some of the looks she got were from men that wouldn't take no for an answer if they found her alone and could force her into marrying them through a pregnancy.

It was all she thought about most days, and this day around noon her thoughts were interrupted by the sound of a little girl in the village, Brynja, yelling about boats in the horizon. She climbed the ladder next to the house until she could see the shore. Was it him? Had he returned? She could see the white sails bobbing in the bay as small figures emerged from the returning ships. She bolted to the field where they had always met, where he would look for her. An hour passed, then two. She thought about going back to the village but she was afraid of the rough men that would come back with him, or, worse, that she would find he never came back at all. She played with her two braided pigtails while she thought about what she would do if he didn't come. The ships had returned and if he was not on them, she would be left to the mercy of her scorned suitors.

My Thor's Day Viking Reading

Joka of the Vale by JW Cleland
"They came from the east in the spring of the year. I had heard of such as them; the old stories of devils who ate children might have been about their kind. Their attack came silently at dawn, while most still slept and the rest moved slow in the cold. Many of our men were gone, at sea, some were fishing, and the warriors were gone a’raiding. We never thought that anyone would come a’raiding on us."

Joka was a strong, fierce young woman, a misfit even among her own Norse people for her tough character. When the raiders came, she was taken as a hostage and carried far from her home to Germania, adapting to survive, visiting strange new lands and learning that even captors can become friends, and more.

Length: Novella (Caution: Adult erotic content)
