The Outlaw Viking is part of her Viking 1 series. I believe it is the second in the series. I have read a few of these, but not in order.

Dr. Rain Jordan is a dyed in the wool pacifist, she is also the daughter of a 1000 year old Viking dad and modern day time traveling mom (The Reluctant Viking). Rain has never believed the fanciful tales of her mom’s past time travel, but has been plagued with lifelong dreams of a bloody battle scene involving a battlescared, blond Viking. When a bump on the head sends her into a strange land back in time, she is forced to believe her moms tales.

Selik has lost everyone in life, his wife, his son and more friends and followers than he can count. He has one mission in life and it is to destroy every Saxon enemy he can find. He stands for everything that Rain hates.

I enjoyed this battle of the sexes. Selik is a hardened Viking who has been mentally wounded to the point where killing and brutality are his only purpose. Revenge and dying are his only goals. I love strong alpha males (especially when they have a hidden/wounded heart of gold). Rain has been sent by God to save him. I liked Rains spunk. I am not sure who is more stubborn, but their clashes leave a lot of fun dialog and material for Hill to work with. She does this well. The secondary characters of God, Ubbi (an arthritic faithful servant of Selik – who believes Rain is an Angel) Blanche (a young women with a eye on Selik and a will to do what it takes to survive) add to the tale. Rain’s mom Ruby was not actually featured heavily, but the references to her past in the Reluctant Viking have made me want to read it. Ruby sounds really fun.

Grade: B

Cover: Yikes, I will give it break since it is from the 80’s. It brings back great memories of the Mullet’s hayday.
