About This Book
Overview

Scotland, 803 A.D.

About to be burned at the stake by her fellow villagers, Odaria does what any betrayed witch facing certain death would do. She calls down a curse. Within seconds, rampaging Norsemen raid the village, capturing everyone except her.

But her reprieve is short-lived, and Odaria lands in the clutches of the Norse leader Rothgar. Can she remain true to herself and fight her growing attraction to this domineering man, or will she fall under his influence and be used for his ambitions?

After Rothgar witnesses Odaria’s powers firsthand, he strikes a bargain with her. The raven-haired beauty will use her magical abilities to help him with his quest in exchange for safe passage off the isle. But can this cunning woman be trusted, or is she using him to exact vengeance on her village?

Together they must fight bloodthirsty villagers, battle a mutinous band of Norsemen, find a missing Norse ship, and learn to trust each other . . . before time is up.

“Weaving in paranormal and thriller aspects and a zinger of an ending, Wilkins presents a violent, exciting, and steamy tale sure to please historical romance readers.” ~ Judy Murray, Library Journal (August 3, 2012)

“The world she describes is believable and so easy to visualize, and the characters are all there. There is a hero and heroine, the horrid bad guy and all the secondary people to fill out the story.” ~ Vickie A. Sold, Amazon review (August 21, 2012)

“This book kept me engrossed from start to finish, wondering what was going to happen and if Odaria’s visions are really correct. What a great read!” ~ Teresa T., The Romance Studio (August 29, 2012)

“Ms. Wilkins has written a fun escapist romantic fantasy novel.” ~Star, The Bibliophilic Book Blog

“The Viking’s Witch is a fantastic novel. It is extremely fast moving, and the story is beautiful and scary and all around wonderful. The characters are easy to adore, as I obviously have done. It’s not often that I can sit down and start a book of this length one night and finish it in its entirety the following day. It was good enough for that to occur. This is a novel that I would recommend for anyone seeking a splendid adventure, or a scorching, heartwarming romance destined to set many hearts aflame. Readers will love this novel as much, if not more, than I do. This is a truly fantastic book.” ~Night Owl Reviews

“Author Kelli Wilkins created a fascinating worldview of the forgotten Pictish culture. Despite the generally dark tone of the story, the evolution of Odaria’s and Rothgar’s relationship provides humorous episodes as two powerful people vie for position in their relationship.” ~Rita, Coffee Time Romance & More
