    1. Beautifully told story with stunning imaginative graphics and time frame. You can almost feel yourself transported back into that era and feel the furs clinging to your skin. Wild roasted meats are flavoring the air and the sound of sword play and battles draws your attention. A classic tale of betrayal, deceit, jealousy and greed fills the storyline.


    2. I don’t even know where to start with how bad this was. From the blurb “a powerful Viking lord will discover a fierce heart cannot be taken by mere force”. I was expecting something like Fires of Winter (Haardrad Viking Family #1) by Johanna Lindsey, which is one of my all-time favorite Viking bodice ripper romances from the 90s. I spent much of my teenage years reading bodice rippers and I still have my well-thumbed copies by Johanna Lindsay, Kathleen E. Woodiwiss, Rosemary Rogers and man [...]


    3. This review was originally posted on Addicted To Romance Summary Lida was practically a girl when she fell in love and married, but then her husband died and she was pregnant. Her husband's family kicked her out, claiming she was a whore. So Lida returned back to her family, mourning the man she loved and left alone to raise their daughter. Lida is content working on her family's farm and raising her daughter who is sweet, smart and innocent. But then Jarl Magnus and his entourage comes passing [...]


    4. Originally posted at SmexyBookssmexybooks/2015/03/review-Favorite Quote:“In our fathers’ day, you could have tossed her in your ship and be halfway to Tronscar by now.”“Our forefathers had all the fun.”Married and widowed in a two month span, Lida returns to her family’s home. Eight years later, happily raising her daughter on her own, she inadvertently captures the attention of a powerful viking warlord who will do anything to make her his wife. Before she knows it, she’s wedded, [...]


    5. Amazing Story!What an amazing story that shows the endurance of heartache and suffrage from one tragedy to the next. My mind was blown away with the imagery I depicted from this incredible visionary story. The Viking savagery is expected you might think but not all Viking tales are the same and this one handsome Viking - Jarl Magnus - Warlord of Tronscar changes the meaning into a man of worth and honor for his time. His sacrifice and love builds his character as he falls in love with Lida.Lida [...]


    6. "She had conquered him. Oh, how he despised her for it."I had read this book once, years ago and absolutely loved it. I'd found it by accident and, as it takes place mostly in Sweden, where my father's side is from (I even found my name with correct spelling in the book!), I was fascinated! Putting you in mind of Vikings and The Last Kingdom, both tv shows I absolutely love and though they are set far earlier than this book is written, this is the enthralling story of a brave half Finnish/half S [...]


    7. C'etait court mais c'etait biiiiien *-*Je sais plus ce que disait exactement le review des smart bitches mais ça m'a motivé à le lire et je regrette pas Magnus *soupirs* (et ya pas que lui Tero et Hök se démerdent pas mal dans la couinitude)Et Magnus et la petite Katia c'est trop chouuuuuu et Katia est l'héroïne du tome 2, je vais me jeter dessus xD


    8. Review copy courtesy of the publisher via NetGalley.Oooh this book was my first foray into a really, REALLY historical romance! This one is set in, like, the freaking 1100's in Viking country. It was touch and go for a while but I'm pretty sure that I liked this book!Lida was awesome. I felt for her right away since she was being accused of being a whore. Not an auspicious way to start a book but it was pretty great. I liked how she wouldn't cower or lie to save her own ass. She just stood her g [...]


    9. I was in the mood for an historical book but didn't fancy the usual regency or even highland type romance so was quite interested when I spotted this book on Netgalley. It's the authors debut and set in the frozen north of Sweden so the idea of reading a romantic novel about Vikings piqued my interest.Lida is our heroine and she has survived very rough treatment at the hands of her late husbands family ( queue mother in law jokes here!) but eight years later she is raising her daughter Katia wit [...]


    10. I've read more than a few books that started off well, but floundered as I moved along. However, The Warlord's Wife follows a less common path. The first half or two-thirds of this book is painfully terrible, so awful in fact that I found myself wondering if F- might possibly be a grading option. But the second half - or at least the last quarter? Well, the ending's a little too pat, but the author really does improve things by fitting in a cracking good action story amidst the crazy romance. If [...]


    11. DNF at 50% and the only reason I held out so long is because it was late in the evening and I did not have the brain capacity for a fresh book but still wanted to read something. Congratulations, this is the one of the worst books I've read this year. And again, I bought this on sale without having a look at the reading sample when do I ever learn?I was hoping for some hot viking sex but instead I got terrible plot, irritating characters (the MC's daughter started out cute and then went from gra [...]


    12. The Warlord's Wife was a good historical romance. It wasn't the best but I enjoyed it overall.Let me start with what I liked about the book:Magnus was amazing. Sweet, kinder than he let on, and always honorable. I loved how kind he was with Katria, Lida's daughter, and how protective he was of everyone under his care. He was wonderful and I totally adored him.The second half of the book was great (we'll get to the first half later). It came with a few twists and thrills as a troublemaker continu [...]


    13. Originally Reviewed For: Bodice Rippers, Femme Fatales and FantasyThe Warlord's Wife is book one from brand new author Sandra Lake and a very nice first book it is! Lida married young, well typical for her time period, but her first child came just four months after the marriage and after the death of her husband. Politics abound and she was accused of having a bastard and disowned by the family. Turned away she was lucky to return back to her own home. Now 8 years later a visiting warlord wants [...]


    14. Historical romance was my very first love. It was my first introduction to the genre in the sixth grade. I was 11. Since then, my love for historical romance has grown and expanded to other genres under the romance umbrella and beyond, but I always find that reading a well written historical romance always hits the spot.The Warlord's Wife is one of the first romances I can recall reading set in the 12th century and only the second or third set in Sweden. I was hooked from the very first page. My [...]


    15. This tale of Northern Europe during the Viking period is really well researched and written. A young woman in Finland is thrown out after her husband dies, and raises her baby in her own family's hall. A few years later a Swedish jarl or landowner is returning from a trade mission and sees this fine strong young woman, who has already had a healthy child, and decides that she would make a good wife. Magnus finds it hard to win the trust of Lida, but her family is willing to haggle and the bishop [...]


    16. Actual rating 3.5 stars.This book has a solid 5 star idea, but unfortunately, the execution was only 3½ stars for me. In this way, it reminds me a bit of Beautiful Wreck, where there is a great idea, but the exection leaves the reader a bit wanting. But my 3½ star rating is not certainly a bad thing, but I feel as if this story could be so much better if:- I would have a better idea of the timeline of things (I felt that the timeline was kind of skippy (?!)). - I had had a chance to get to kno [...]


    17. Sandra Lake’s début historical romance 'The Warlord's Wife' gives readers everything they could possibly want in a story of heroism and tormented hero's. A tale not to be missed. Any reader who enjoys Highlanders, TV’s Vikings or a romp through the countryside, will enjoy this read. Passion runs rampant through this great story as Lida was a great lead character. I'm looking forward to read her second story in this series which is entitled 'The Iron Princess'.

    19. I loved this book. It has great romance, intrigue, betrayal, and a little bit of action. And little katia so sweet and honest. I can't wait to read the next book.


    20. An entertaining read; I’m glad I picked this up and would try another book by Ms. Lake. This is reminiscent of early Johanna Lindsey books, though the setting is better developed in The Warlord’s Wife and it has more heart (e.g the interactions between Magnus and his new step-daughter). Plenty of alpha-maleness if that’s your thing and FYI, while the heroine physically consents to fulfill her marital bedroom duties right after she is wed, it is clear that she does not emotionally consent ( [...]


    21. Interesting to read a historical romance from this era. But so many twisted feelings on the story, too close to rape and abuse. I feel like the story could have been told without going there, creating conflict and keeping the culture of the time true without the abuse.



    22. It fun to read a romance novel with an actual plot and character development. It was a fun fast read, and I will definitely be reading the next books


    23. This book was well written and had a steady plot (most of the time) with the romance accentuating that. The author did a very good job of balancing the story and the relationship between Lida and Magnus. I will be honest though. It wasn't the most in depth of reads, but sometimes one needs a suspenseful quick-read now and then (I finished this book in about 5 hours on my Ereader.) Even though it is genre of historical romance we learn hardly anything about where it's set so don't go into reading [...]


    24. This was the first historical romance I have read, and I was actually a little surprised by how much I enjoyed it. For much of it I was quite into it and wanting to keep reading. A few times though my interest did wane. Primarily when dealing with the plotting of the bad person.After losing her husband of mere months at 16, Lida is beaten and disowned by his family for being pregnant before their wedding night. Eight years later she's got a beautiful daughter and is happy to continue her life un [...]


    25. Debut author Sandra Lake takes historical fiction to new heights with her first book in the Sons of the North series, The Warlord's Wife. Readers who enjoy historical fiction but are tired of the same old offerings will find this book a refreshing change. Lake gives readers a look into the Viking culture and history like they've never seen it before, through the eyes of a young woman, touched by tragedy. The Swedes that Lake writes about are a strong and noble people who brave the cold and inhos [...]


    26. A story of a woman who has suffered through loss and picked herself back up. That same woman being faced with being uprooted from her home, her family, to become a warlord’s wife. Something that she doesn’t want or need in her life, but is willing to make the sacrifice if it means giving her child a name. And the hidden treachery of ones around them who will do anything to gain power.Lida was a strong character at such a young age. But she was forced to be that way. She lost her husband at s [...]


    27. The Warlord's Wife is the first book in the Sons of the North series. It is also the debut book from Sandra Lake. It is a wonderful start to what is bound to be an amazing career as an author for her.The story is set in Sweden in the 12th Century. Lida is the main female character. She is a single mother living on her family's farm. She had been married in her past but when her husband died, his mother accused her of infidelity and managed to convince her husband to have Lida shunned and sent ba [...]


    28. The Warlord’s Wife (Sons of the North #1)By: Sandra Lake5/5 starsLida became a young, pregnant widow when her Finnish husband was killed during a crusade against men from the North. Instead of the protection of her husband’s family, they accused her of adultery. While they had the lawful right to kill her after such a claim, they instead sent her back to her father’s home in Turku, Finland. Lida swore that she would never marry again, and it was a decision that her father respected, though [...]


    29. Independent Lida is used to fending for herself. When her husband, the love of her life, died he left her with a gift. Unfortunately, his family called her a whore when they discovered her pregnancy and sent her packing. Now she has a beautiful daughter and lives with her family.
