In 1013, with her entire family
presumed dead, Madrene Olgadottir attempts to defend her family land against an invader. Despite her efforts,
she is shipped off to Arab lands to
be sold into a harem, which she
later escapes.

Lt. Ian MacLean and his SEAL team are on a special mission in Northern Iraq. While scouting, Ian is hit over
the head and tied up by a woman
who seems strangely out of touch
with the modern world. Ian and crew
first assume that Madrene is connected
to the terrorists, and by the time they
realize she is not, they also decide not
to leave her behind. Ian reluctantly
agrees to a quickie marriage to get
her to the States.

Madrene is amazed at all the strange gizmos and habits that Americans
have, but she's no pushover. And that's
good, because danger lurks. While Ian
and Madrene are enjoying an unusual courtship, the terrorists are still close by.

In any century, Madrene is one determined woman. That time-traveling Viking clan is back and rounding up its last remaining member. The genius of Hill is that she can take the most outlandishly wacky scenario and make it seem plausible. (Jul., 384 pp., $6.99)
