The last Magnusson son remaining in 1010 A.D. is quite bored. Ragnor has no idea that his missing father and siblings time-traveled forward a thousand years. Fate now decides it's Ragnor's turn when he "drowns" at sea. He suddenly materializes in the middle of a water exercise in the present, and everyone assumes he's an aspiring Navy SEAL named Torolf.

Ragnor thinks that Lt. Alison MacLean, the sister of his military adversary, is the most magnificent woman he's ever seen. Alison, meanwhile, doesn't know what to make of this Viking warrior who doesn't take no for an answer.

Only the mind of Sandra Hill could dream up this hilarious and wacky scenario. The Vikings are on the loose once again, and they're wreaking sexy and sensual fun. (Oct., 374 pp., $6.99)
