   For as long as Arienh can remember, her Celtic people have feared the deadly Viking raids. She knows their brutality first hand, having lost the men from her own family and village to their swords. When she encounters and wounds a Viking warrior one stormy night, she has every right to want him dead. Instead, she allows him shelter in her cottage. Although she fears him, his confidence and teasing manner give her pause. He acts as if she belongs to him. As if he knows her.

       Ronan didn't expect Arienh to recognize him. Why should she? They were both just children when his uncle forced him into a raid against her village. But Ronan risked his life to protect the young Arienh from his marauding kinsmen. Now that the time has come for Ronan and the other warriors to choose wives, he has returned to claim the beautiful girl who captured his heart so long ago.

       But for men accustomed simply to taking what they want, wooing the courageous, headstrong Celtic women is easier said than done. And for Arienh, who always sacrificed her own happiness for the sake of her people, trusting-and loving-a Northman may be impossible. By turns poignant and humorous, Loki's Daughters is a stirring tale of unlikely lover, forged in dangerously opposite worlds yet bound together by sacrifice, strength, and undeniable passion.

This is my first time reading a Delle Jacobs back and I will say I really enjoyed it. Historical Romance has got  to be one of my favorite genres and this is my first time reading one that has Vikings in it. I think Delle Jacobs did a great job putting this story together. I had no problem staying interested, in fact I could not put it down. It had no problem keeping me entertained the whole time. I give it five stars this is one I will definitely reread.
