As if called by the object, Leif Dæganssen, an archeologist from Norway, uncovers an ancient chest buried beside his coastal cottage in western Ireland. The intricately decorated artifact might confirm the existence of a Viking settlement on Inishmore. Leif is driven to establish a link between himself and the Scandinavians who once inhabited the rugged isle.
For as long as she can remember, Lorraine O'Connor has had dreams of a Norse warrior. And even though she's never fully understood the reason, she welcomes the meaningless pleasure of being in a Viking's protective embrace—until the day she meets that very Northman on an impulsive vacation to Ireland.
Though blindsided by the relevance of her dreams and the eerily familiar man within them, Lorraine can't help but feel drawn to Leif. The more she gets to know him, the more she's convinced they've shared a life together in a time long forgotten.
As their pasts and present lives begin to intertwine, old conflicts and angers rise to the surface. Leif and Raine must win the right to be together in this life – if Raine can even convince Leif he was once her ancient Viking lover.
