The Romantic Times released its December issue and reviewed The Viking's Captive Princess.
It received Four Stars and Kathe Robin said:
She (Styles) maintains the myth while adding sexual tension, nonstop action and spice.
Given all the pain that I went through with this book, getting a review like this means that I was right to do it. It is all about trying to get the book to deliver the best story possible.
It gives me a spur to try to get the current one the best it can be! Because for me, it is not about resting on my laurels but about trying to improve. I have definitely not mastered that mysterious medium called historical romance yet. So today is yet more bleeding on the page and trying to make sure the light romantic touches are there.
