No sooner had his marriage vows been uttered, (at the point of a sword) Leif Nabboddrson, a mighty Jarl of Denmark is shoved off his Drakkars, bound hand and foot, into the sea.
Instead of drowning, he washes up upon the shores of a strange and wondrous beach, and the woman who forced the sea out of his lungs with a remarkable, life saving kiss, is his treacherous bride. Or is she?
Upon her Nordic grandmother's admittance to a nursing home, Katla 'Kat' Jonsdottir was forced to fend for herself on the harsh streets of San Francisco until fate deals her an incredible hand and her life is turned upside down by the arrival of a Viking warrior.
Childhood legends come to life, trust and betrayal are at constant odds, and the attraction between Leif and Kat is too strong to be ignored.
In one deft movement, he flipped the woman on to her back and pinned her beneath him, holding his knife a hair's breadth away from her throat.
She screamed and a seagull flying above screeched in response.
Those captivating long tresses that the wind had taunted and teased but moments ago now spread about her on the sand, as dark as a starless night. Wispy bangs fell across her forehead, softening the elegant perfection of her face. Her smooth, flawless skin was almost translucent, paled by fright and her big eyes were wide and dilated with terror. Seeing her -- feeling her crushed under him, knowing she was completely at his mercy filled him with remorse.
Guilt? Nay, never let it be! Leif snorted in disgust. It mattered not that she was exquisite, fragile and frightened.
She was a murderess!
Her chin trembled as she struggled to form words.
"Please, get off me, you're hurting me," she pleaded, struggling.

Rosie Chan suddenly finds herself alone in the world: Her fiancÚ is dead, and her best friend is missing in the mist of Time. An unexpected night time call for help from the disembodied voice of her missing friend leads to a series of events which propel Rosie into a spinning vortex of Time.
When Rosie tumbles out of the vortex and into the year 904, she quite unexpectedly falls right into love. But the man who breaks her fall and captures her heart has a secret...
Can she love him, despite his secrets and their differing worlds?
Davyn Nabbodderson is banned from his homeland for a murder he does not know if he committed. He flees to Scotland and seizes Castle Rose Haven, but guilt and loneliness plague him, making his life a bitter existence.
Until, that is, Time delivers Rosie to him. But will Time allow him to keep her?
"I can't marry you," she told him, struggling to find the words to make him understand. "You don't even know me."
"That's where you're wrong, Lady," he said, his eyes playful now. "Kat has spent countless hours telling me of you and your time. I know everything I need to know about you. You may not realize it as yet, Lady, but you are my destiny. We were meant to be together. You will give me strong, loyal, spirited sons and beautiful daughters. And I will protect you from your enemies. You will grow to love me in no time at all."
Angry heat flooded her cheeks. "If you think that, gringo, then you obviously don't know anything about me at all."
He did not flick an eyelash. "Then it is a good thing that I will have a lifetime to learn about you," he countered.
Kicking off the covers Rosie swung her legs over the side of the bed only to discover, too late, that the bed was perched upon on a tall pedestal.
She landed with a complete lack of grace into Davyn's arms. Steal bands wrapped around her and she felt his chin rest atop her head. His chuckle rumbled in his chest.
She would have given anything at that moment to have the black void suck her up and spit her out back in her bedroom. Alone.
"You're not going anywhere, Rosalinda Yolanda Carmen Singhi Chan," he assured her. "You will remain at Castle Rose Haven either as my bride, or as my prisoner, the choice is yours."
