VIKING, GO HOME
Smith gives romantic time-travel readers just what they want with this exceptional read. The flow between the years 1016 and 2010 is seamless, with none of the confusing, awkward transitions that often occur in time travels. The heroine
is an excellent example of the modern woman who has no trouble standing up for herself. When reading this story this reviewer couldn't help but think of another excellent time travel, Jude Deveraux's A Knight in Shining Armor.
Enter novelist Raven Harrison, who lives in 2010. Hoping to cure her writer's block, she travels to an ancient cemetery to take pictures of medieval etchings carved on a mausoleum. Knocked unconscious by a tree branch during a wind storm, she awakens to find the handsome Viking standing over her. Not believing the yarn that Wulf is spinning, Raven is trying to get away from him when someone starts shooting. Upon escaping, Raven takes Wulf home with her where she introduces him to fast food, indoor plumbing and love. But who is after Raven, and what of Wulf's uncertain fate?
