Review: Northman's Passion by Kate Hill

Now you guys already know I don't write many reviews because frankly, I don't think I do them well. lol So instead of calling this a review, how about we call it a "I loved this book so much I wanted to let all my friends know so they will read it too" blog post. *wink*

Description from Ellora's Cave...

Erik Ice Tooth is used to getting what he wants. Undefeated in battle, no man is his match and no woman resists him, until he meets Bera, daughter of his King.

Disgusted by the hulking brute who asks for her hand in marriage, Bera adamantly refuses him, but Erik is determined to have his way. He abducts Bera, vowing that theirs is a match made by the gods—and he has many lusty tricks in store to prove it.

My Take...

Now it's been a while since I read a Historical because I've been on a crazy vampire high for a long time. But I won this ebook and decided to read it and you all know how I feel about ebooks. o.o I don't usually read them unless they are by authors that I already like because too many times I start reading one and it's bad...Bad I say!

But...this was so good! Oh My Gawd...I got it in my email and I decided to read the first few paragraphs to see if it looked like something I might like. I didn't stop reading until I was done. It didn't even occur to me that I was reading the entire book until I got to the end and was like..omg, that was fantastic!

The funniest part of the book by far is Erik meeting Bera for the first time because he had fallen into a dung heap and smelled really bad. He didn't even bathe before asking for her hand in marriage! It's no wonder she said no to him, I mean really...who wants to be proposed to, or in this case be bartered over for a bride price like some piece of cattle *now I remember why I don't read many historicals, I want to reach through the book and bitch slap the men!* by a man who smells like a filthy beast? Not me...

But the best part, *are you ready for this* I'm actually thinking of buying the second book after this one! *I know! Gasp! She's gonna BUY an ebook?* Kate Hill told me that Northman's Pleasure is now out and it's about Erik's brother, Grim. 

For those of you who would like to buy Northman's Passion, you can find it at this link on Ellora's Cave

While I was looking at Kate Hill's different books on Ellora's cave, I found that she also writes PNR! Hubby is going to dog sit for a few days at the end of this month and I think I just found a few books to keep me busy. *rubs hands together excitedly*

If you like paranormal reads then this one might peak your interest, I know it did me. 

Oh, and since I won this first book on Shelly Munro's blog Taste of Kiwi, here's a link to one of Shelley's eBooks on Ellora's Cave. Because I never would have found Kate Hill without her. 

Description Via Ellora's Cave

Professional rugby player Lane Gerrard is used to women throwing themselves at him, but a scurrilous tabloid article naming him as father of a child sends his temper soaring. The woman he confronts doesn't fit the blackmailer profile. Kate Alexander is attractive with an enchanting innocence, enticing. A total stranger. Her feistiness draws his unwilling admiration, but the child…he is the image of Lane.

Kate can't deny her son's similarity to the sexy man at her door but no way will she hand him over without a fight. Kate doesn't possess money but she can shower her son with love. With public speculation rife, Kate reluctantly works with Lane to discover the truth. They grow closer as distrust slowly turns to mutual fascination, but the tabloid articles bring out a stalker. Mild pranks escalate into danger, and suddenly Lane realizes Kate is a woman he could love. With Kate and her son, he could have a family. Now, with his heart on the line, this is one game he's playing to win.


  1. I'm so glad you've found a new author to enjoy. I like Kate's books myself. And thanks for featuring my book too. It's much appreciated. :)

  2. You do fine with reviews or non reviews haha

  3. Hi Mary! Thank you for reading and reviewing Northman's Passion. I'm glad you liked it and Erik's dung accident made you laugh! Thanks again!

  4. Shelley, Me too, it's always nice to find a new author you like. And you're very welcome. :)

    Pat, thanks hun, I appreciate it. :)

    Kate, You're very welcome!

  5. Ha, slowly you are being corrupted (I mean converted) to e-books. It is an insidious process and I admit that I am not thrilled by them since I like print but I can't deny, it's easier to carry a large quantity of titles with me! Thanks for the review, I am not sure I have read this author's works but I am curious about them now even if that's not my normal genre.
