Viking Raider: Gundar Herjolfson is one of the most feared Viking warriors ever. Sneering at the fates who have denied him of his rightful honors time and time again, he adopts the bitter sobriquet of Talon as his battle cry. Ruthlessly he cuts a swath of destruction through the French countryside in search of riches. One night he happens upon a small cloister and decides to have some sport to break the monotony of battle, and possible to find rest for a weary body. Danielle D'Arcenau is shocked when a nearly naked man, dressed in wolf pelts and armed to the teeth invades her cell. Lifting her chin she bravely meets Talon's icy gaze. Even though she knows fear, she understands that to show it in front of this invader is folly. Death may not be far away, but it never looked so magnificent. For two lost and despairing souls to find each other is a miracle, but for them to actually find love in their situation should be impossible; or is it?
