God’s Eye by Susan Fanetti

Historical romance lover? Vikings are HERE!
Can I speak honestly for a moment?
I was so uncertain about what to expect going into this book. I am not a big fan of Vikings … not that I have anything against them – I’ve just never had an overwhelming interest in them before now … so, my nerves were high, worrying that I might not fully appreciate this book, based on the subject matter.
Of course, I should have known better.
There are some really intense moments in this book. Full of a lot of action. And all authentic feeling. The history was obviously, really well researched (even though I know very little of it myself – I got the sense that it was as it should be).
I think what had worried me was that the story would be all dark and brutal history, with little room for romance. But, I’ve discovered that Vikings are a hell of a lot more romantic than I could have ever imagined.
The heroine, Brenna is easy to connect with. She is strong, independent and fierce. I seriously adored her. And the leading man, Vali … holy shit! This man is H-O-T. Their romance blossomed a little quickly, but I had to appreciate that once they knew what they wanted, they wasted no time on games or drama. The strong connection with these 2 definitely pulled on my heart-strings.
Kudos once again, Susan Fanetti. Well done!
