For generations, Arienh's people have feared the Viking raids. She knows all too well the terrible toll the Northmen have taken on the Celtes, having lost most of her own family to their swords. So one stormy night when she encounters and wounds a Viking warrior, she has every right to want him dead. And yet she hesitates. Ronan knows Arienh doesn't recognize him. He was just a boy when his kinsmen raided her village and Ronan risked his own life to protect her. Now he has returned to claim the beautiful girl who captured his heart years before. But wooing a Celtic woman is no easy task. And no one has a heart more guarded than Ariehn, who has sacrificed her own happiness for the good of her village. She and Ronan are unlikely lovers, forged in dangerouly opposite worlds, yet bound together by strength, sacrifice, and an undeniable passion.… (mais)

Loki's Daughters spielt wohl zu der Zeit, als Grönland sich als ungünstiges Siedlungsland herausstellte. Eine Gruppe "Nordmänner" macht sich auf die Suche nach einer neuen Heimat (heutiges Nordwestengland - Cumbria) - und das nicht ganz zufällig, denn ihr Anführer, Ronan, war schon einmal mit einer Wikinger-Truppe unterwegs und rettete damals einem Mädchen das Leben. Er findet sie und ihr Tal wieder, allerdings geht der Erstkontakt nicht so aus, wie er es sich erträumt hat - aber zumindest überlebt er.

Im weiteren Verlauf der Geschichte werden die Ressentiments der keltischen Frauen gegen die Nordmänner mehr als deutlich - schließlich hat noch kein "Wikinger" etwas positives gebracht. Und auch diese Gruppe dringt in ihr Tal ein und beansprucht es sich für sich - und beeinflusst damit nachhaltig das Gruppengefüge der nahezu männerlosen keltischen Gruppe.

Die Nordmänner sind natürlich alle kräftig, muskulös und gut gebaut, und so nimmt die Natur ihren Lauf. Bettszenen halten sich in Grenzen, und die Frauen verhalten sich erfreulich emanzipiert.

Aus meiner Sicht zog sich der Anfang etwas, und dass die Schwester der Protagonistin Arienh, Birgit, nahezu blind ist, hätte vielleicht auch nicht so häufig wiederholt werden müssen. Ansonsten: ein durchaus amüsantes und immer wieder spannendes Buch, das ich gerne gelesen habe. ( )

AUTHOR: This is my 1st time reading one of Delle Jacob’s books. I’m not impressed with “LOKI’s DAUGHTERS”. I found the content to be repetitive. If romance books provided (3) separate layers of “something that you can sink your teeth into”, this book only made it to the first layer. I never give up on an author and “fully” intend and look forward to reading another book by Delle. I want to be fair.

SYNOPSIS -
Many years ago the Celtic village was attacked by Vikings. A handful of women, children and one elderly man managed to hide themselves and survived. One young girl was hidden by a young Viking boy during the attack. Now as an adult, the Viking returns to seek his love, the young woman that he rescued so many years ago.

PASSION SCALE: This book gets (2) ASTERICK because the level of being argumentative takes away from the passion found in the romantic parts of the book. Intimacy is few and far between.
* NOT very descriptive and requires imagination
** WILL make you wiggle a little)
*** WISH it was me;
**** OH BODY, whew;
***** EROTICA and well over the top

FAVORITE PART: Feathers everywhere and how they got there.

LEAST FAVORITE PART: Arienh’s totally over cooked and over done character page after page after page.

YOU WILL LIKE THIS BOOK IF YOU LIKE: Historical romance, Vikings, Celts

This book gets TWO Stars. Romance books = 2 central characters, 1 male, 1 female…...we have that;
One or both of the main characters are in peril……..nope not per se; They work together to resolve the situation……nope; The perilous situation brings them together........nope not from the point of working together during a perilous situation but they do come together…..eventually. ( )

In some ways, it has the feel of a classic Greek play... or at least it reminded me of The Supplicants by Aeschylus in some ways. There's a village full of beautiful Celt women, struggling to survive the harsh lands. They've been all but destroyed by the Viking raiders, and have little love for that race. A boat of handsome Viking (strike that, Northerner) men land and set themselves up in the village, against the wishes of the women. The men want nothing to do with raiding, raping, and pillaging. Instead, they wish to settle down and take the village women as wives. The women start playing pranks on the men, the men who start fixing the village homes, plowing the fields, taking care of the sheep, etc... Things progress as the women fall in love, and the men work to earn their trust. Eventually, everything turns out perfectly and everyone is living happily ever after.
This is the author's first novel, and it certainly reads like it. There are some plot holes left gaping at the end of the story.... the story is tied up for the main characters, but some of the other relationships are left a little fuzzy. There were too many coincidences and everything is just too perfect to make it a truly interesting story, although it was a quick, entertaining diversion. ( )
