The Black Death has decimated Scotland, wiped out most of Grier MacInnes’s family, and killed her chances for marriage three times. The only members of the MacInnes family left are her and twenty year old Logan, cousin and laird of Durness.
A gifted healer, Grier spots two men floating in Balnakeil Bay outside the walls of Durness Castle during a horrific storm. One is already dead, the second is alive, but near drowning and dragging a broken leg. Grier and Logan pull Rydar Martin Petter-Edvard Hansen and his travel companion from the water. Grier sets Rydar’s leg and begins the healing process for the man who speaks only Norwegian, but quickly learns enough Scottish to captivate her.
With the town of Durness emptied of all young, viable men, Grier sees her life stretched before her as bleak and endless as a stormy winter sky over the North Sea. Her cousin will marry soon, and his fifteen year old bride will displace her. Not a lot to look forward to.
Despite the strong attraction and admiration he feels for the strong and compassionate healer, Rydar is anxious to return to the sea and find his way to Arendal, Norway to claim his inheritance.
Could he be the means for Grier to have the life she’s always dreamed of? Or will her Viking sail away and leave her to play maid to the new Lady of the castle?
Kris Tualla’s fourth book in the Hansen series delivers all the love, treachery and romance of the previous three. Loving the Norseman is a great read, and an enjoyable peek into yet another set of solid characters and their fascinating story.
