Kept by the Viking
Forgotten Sons Book 1
by Gina Conkle

Historical Viking Romance

Loyalty to the Brotherhood comes before all. Including women.

Formidable Viking leader Rurik knows the law. His loyalty to the Forgotten Sons
is his bond, and no woman will threaten what he’s built from the
ground up. But the Sons are a roving band of Vikings, and Rurik is
growing restless—so when Normandy’s chieftain offers land, the
proposal intrigues him. And the sultry Parisian thrall he finds in
his tent intrigues him even more…

Safira is cunning and clever and full of secrets. Rurik’s men have no
interest in securing her safe passage home, but, piqued with lust,
Rurik views Safira’s wiles as a captivating challenge—one he’s
determined to conquer, even if lying with her is as defiant as it is inevitable.

Traveling with Safira has been a fantasy come true—what started as lust is
quickly turning to the kind of partnership Rurik could never have
dreamed. But their arrival in foreign lands marks a new chapter, one
that demands a Viking wife. With impossible decisions to be made,
Rurik’s alliances are fraying, and past promises may not be enough
to save him from having to betray those he’s sworn loyalty
to—including Safira.

Her Viking Warrior
Forgotten Sons Book 2

When an outcast goes home and meets a woman seeking justice, hearts will clash…

Eighteen years ago, Bjorn was exiled from Vellefold. Honor-bound to return,
he’ll fight for the settlement…then walk away. First, he must
work with his childhood friend, now a beautiful, high-ranking Viking lady.

Fierce of spirit, Ilsa will do anything to save her people, including
convincing the banished son to take the jarl’s seat. But she has
her doubts about the stone-hearted Viking, despite the lust between
them. It’s only a matter of time before Bjorn discovers that Ilsa
is hiding dangerous secrets, secrets that may jeopardize all they’ve worked for.

When the darkest hour comes, the once-rejected warrior must choose: rescue
his men, the Forgotten Sons—or Ilsa, the woman he craves, body and soul.

Cold air nipped. Snow began to fall, white specks, dancing, twirling. The enemy could be watching, but he was useless to lift a finger. He needed Ilsa in his arms…to brace himself against rushing emotions, of being fearless and strong, vulnerable and claimed by a woman.
“We never have time alone,” he said, rubbing the small of her back.
Ilsa answered with a moan. Nestling against him, she clutched a handful of his mantle as if she wouldn’t let go.
Breathing sharp, wintry air…this satisfied him.
Night was peaceful save the barest breeze cutting through branches. He stilled when her forehead grazed his beard. Her nose skimmed his neck. His huntress scented him.
Why hadn’t they done this days ago?
“Please, stay,” she whispered “Think of the good you can do.”
Cold shock splashed him. He grabbed her shoulders and put some air between them. He nearly groaned at her lips parting and the pink tip of her tongue snaking out to wet them. When her eyes opened, the center of both were dark and liquid. True sensuality. Nothing forced. She might want him in body, but she implored on behalf of Vellefold.
Truth gutted him.
The settlement came first for her. The Sons came first for him. He squeezed Ilsa’s shoulders, unable to set her aside.
Want me! rang in his head but out came, “You wouldn’t like me as jarl.”

If he didn’t take the jarl’s mantle, who would?

Gina's fate was sealed when her mom read 'The Highwayman' for a bedtime
story. She was five years old at the time, but from then on, Gina was
doomed to love history and romance.

Some days she pens sparkling Georgian romance. Other days, she writes
evocative Viking romance full of heat and adventure. Gina spent most
of her life in southern California but now lives in Michigan with her
husband where snow days are perfect for reading and writing. Her
books have won awards and garnered critical acclaim. Poke around her
website and you'll run across those accolades.
