The Reluctant Princess(2003)
(The first book in the Viking Brides series)
A novel by Christine Rimmer
THERE'S A...VIKING IN MY LIVING ROOM!
Elli Thorson, displaced Nordic princess, was used to an occasional reminder of where she came from. But even she was surprised at the sight of the handsome if hulking man in her apartment. He said he'd come by order of her father, the king--to bring Elli home by any means possible. And though she didn't want to go, the idea of a journey with this "warrior" was strangely appealing....
Hauk FitzWyborn, the king's right-hand man, knew what His Royal Highness really wanted from his daughter--to marry the man who would be king. And that man was most assuredly not Hauk, he knew, even as he struggled to resist the beautiful princess. Still, as her loveliness reminded him, they were in California now--where even the wildest of dreams could come true....
