Johanna Lindsay is a well-known name in world of the Romance literature. I remember reading her books when I was only 15 or 16 at the beginning of the 90's. Her books were my first books in English; this is when I started staying up all night wanting to know what happens to the characters, to learn about everyday life in past centuries. But then, I can't figure out why anymore, I started thinking that I should read other books than historical Romance.
Some month ago however I started again and yesterday I remembered Johanna Lindsay. Well I am back to enjoying her stories, her description of past cultures and ... staying up all night.
Fires of Winter is the first part of the Viking Haardrad Family Series first published in 1980.

Lady Breena is quite the tomboy and I was intrigued by her personality and determination not to give up on herself. Faced with a fate she has no control over, Breena refuses to become a pawn and subservient to the men that have pillaged her shores.
Garrick is a true viking... with a soft side (shhh don't tell anyone!) I found myself so attracted to this character as he is brutal and firm, yet does not lack compassionate and unlike many of his kin, he does not rule coldly.
When Breena is taken and promised to Garrick as a slave, she is unrelenting in her task of letting these barbarians know that she is never going to serve willingly. With many trials and heartache ahead of her, she finds herself drawn to a man that she is supposed to be revolted by.
I loved the constant wit and banter between the two main characters as a power struggle continued to grow. I was taken by the setting and depiction of this world that Lindsey has brought to her readers. I would say that the only problem that I had with this novel was the constant slip that seemed to land Breena and Garrick right back to the beginning. They are constantly losing any ground that has been gained and are booted back to the ridged and cold start of their relationship. I would have liked to have seen a gradual road to the love that develops between the two as I felt a sense of loss when all went back to having nothing between them.
