Ravished by a Viking by Delilah Devlin

Ravished by a Viking by Delilah Devlin
* I received this ARC free from the author in exchange for an honest review*
What a Viking wants, a Viking takes.
When his younger brother goes missing, Dagr, Viking warrior and Lord of the Wolfskin Clan, will do whatever it takes to get him back. But nothing could have prepared him for Honora-a feisty, intelligent woman who is nothing like the women of his world-women who are content to serve their men in all things. Drawn to her despite her recalcitrant nature, Dagr is determined to show her who’s boss both in bed and out.
When the two enemies-turned-lovers join forces to find Dagr’s brother they are thrown into a rousing adventure full of danger, intrigue and erotic abandon. Can their passion truly unite them or will their different worlds lead to destruction for them both?

Ravished by a Viking took me about 25 pages to really get into the story.  Once the holidays calmed down and I had a chance to sit down with this book and no interruptions, I didn’t want to put it down.  The story takes place in space and a primitive ice planet inhabited by Barbarians/Vikings.

Dagr, King of his people takes it upon himself to rescue his brother who has been taken captive along with others from their homeland.  With the help of an ancient weapon they uncover, Dagr and his crew end up on a consortium ship captained by Honora.  He is captivated by her from the first moment he sets eyes on her.

Honora can’t believe that after all these years, history is repeating itself.  Her life and career are over the moment the Vikings step foot on her ship.  She is determined to not be like her father but when she looks at Dagr, she is ready to submit to his orders, at least in the bedroom.

The attraction between Honora and Dagr is apparent from the first time they meet.  Both of them are fighting their own demons and the attraction to one another.  You have two people thrown together that end up working together in order to survive, neither trusting the other.  The sex scenes between the two of them are HOT and spicy with a level of trust that could only be shown in the bedroom.

This story had me hooked; the characters are interesting and complicated.  There are many facets to them that unravel as the story progresses.  Dagr, upon first glance is a crude barbarian, willing to do whatever it takes to rescue his brother but he is so much more than that.  Honora may be small but she packs a punch.  She is a strong female that has worked hard to get to where she’s at but isn’t afraid to give up control, at least to Dagr.

The author does a wonderful job describing the backdrop for the story, without overloading the reader.  The secondary characters are just as important as the main characters and the world building.  They lend more to the story without taking away from the main story.  Briget is one of my favorite secondary characters.  She may be a warrior but she is inexperienced in many ways.  Her character grows throughout the book and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for her, Erik, Baraq and Fatin.

Overall I really enjoyed Ravished by a Viking.  I recommend this book, especially to Delilah Devlin fan. I give this book 4 flaming hearts.

  1. the cover does not do this book justice. I’m glad you mentioned it was a space/other world story. The cover looks like it would be a historical.

    DD does an incredible job with the sex scenes…hot, intense, erotic.

    Good review
