My Review:

A wonderful second-chance romance, The Viking She Would Have Married is part of the Shieldmaiden Sisters series. Suffering from a broken heart and desperate to help her family, who is impoverished, Valda is stunned when her ex-love Halfdan Ulfsson offers her a job on his merchant ship. Halfdan is thrilled to have the only woman he ever loved on his ship. When old feelings stir, can Valda and Halfdan put the past and all of the obstacles in their way behind them?

Halfdan and Valda have such a wonderful second-chance romance! The pair has a complicated past, and secrets, misunderstandings, lies, and life got in their way. It’s interesting to see them slowly work through the events and feelings of the past and face their wounds and issues.

The story is exciting and entertaining as Valda and Halfdan sail together across a dangerous trade route, and I became so invested in their story. What really happened in their past? Will Valda ever trust Halfdan again? Can she help her family? Will Valda and Halfdan give in to their feelings? And how will they deal with his villainous father? There is a lot at stake for the pair and others close to them.

The secondary characters are also great, and I can’t wait to read more about them and learn their stories! There is a potential romance hinted at in the book with one of Valda’s sisters, and her story sounds like it’s going to be a swoon-tastic enemies-to-lovers romance!

Lucy Morris is such a wonderful storyteller, and I always enjoy reading her books. The characters are compelling, the stories are intriguing, and the romances are swoon-tastic! Special thanks to the author and Rachel’s Random Resources for providing me with a copy of the book. All thoughts are my own.
