A star in a world of wealth and privilege....
Fed up with Hollywood backstabbing, famous movie actress Madalyn Simon decided to escape the spotlight. Her new back-to-basics existence in an Alaskan cabin did take getting used to, but at least she was in control of her own destiny -- or so she thought. While snowmobiling on the frigid coast with her sister, the pair is taken hostage by a band of rough men who want them -- for reasons beyond imagining.
A captive in a world of inescapable seductions....
They are neo-Vikings from a hidden underworld, in search of women Outsiders to breed for the New Sweden clan. Their sexy leader, Otar, wants only one woman: Madalyn. Overpowered by his masculine strength and unmasked desire, Madalyn must become Otar's wife or face the marriage auction block. Now, in a world beyond dreams and as real as the hot flesh of her enticing warrior-husband, Madalyn discovers the power of an all-consuming passion -- as the fires of revolution threaten all she has come to love....
In this purposefully over-the-top romp, Black goes in-depth on the underground Viking society that played bit parts in Tie Me Up, Tie Me Down. Sick of the superficiality of Tinsel Town, Hollywood starlet Madalyn Simon escapes to a remote village in Alaska. All is idyllic in her new environs until she and her visiting sister Drake are taken hostage by a medieval underworld society of Vikings called New Sweden. Separated from her sister, and forced to marry her captor, Otar Thordsson, Madalyn soon finds herself with serious Stockholm syndrome, wishing to escape, and yet falling inexplicably in love with her captor. Rambunctious and ribald, Black creates a captivating fantasy, replete with hulky enemies, twisty intrigue, steamy sex, and even some intimate reflections. Madalyn's human quirks and deficiencies, and disbelief at the absurdities of underworld life, are belied by her astute perceptions. Blithe and bubbly, Black cannot be faulted for her imagination.
I am very disappointed with this book. The characters and plot lacked depth. The use of some terms should have been labeled slightly offensive. Don't waste your money if her others books are like this one. If the sample had been more I wouldn't have wasted my money!!!
