Viking For Hire by Jo Grafford ♥ Review Tour & GIVEAWAY ♥ (Historical Romance)

Branwyn O’Tyre’s estranged brother summons her for a healing ritual. Fearing he actually plans to arrest her for witchcraft, she drinks a protection potion before he arrives.

Eirik, a Viking sea captain pretending slumber in the tavern corner, witnesses Branwyn’s magic and offers her safe passage from Exeter if she will reverse a curse that plagues him. Alas, every woman who touches him falls madly but falsely in love with him.

There’s only one hitch: If she fails, Branwyn’s heart will fall prey to the same madness...forever!
This story has a little bit of everything!

Magic, action, mystery, deceit, love. I was pleasantly surprised to find all of these elements written into this story!

I was intrigued from the beginning because the hero, Erik, suffered from a curse that I'm sure most men would call a blessing. The adventure that ensued in hopes of ridding him of that curse had me eagerly turning the virtual pages!

I thought the ending was perfect. This is a kissing-only romance, but in my opinion, the story didn't need the steamy stuff to make it good. I just wish the book was longer, because I would have LOVED to keep reading it!!!

***I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review***
“Call yourself whatever you will, Branwyn. Your powers do not scare me. In truth, I sought you out a-purpose in the hopes you would heal me from the effects of a spell. ‘Twas cast on me by a most wretched sorceress.”

Fearing another trap, Branwyn stared at the ground. “Methinks you mistake me for another. I am naught but a lowly healer, cast off by an overzealous brother in a fit of religious fervor. Wh-why do you ask me such things, m’lord?”

“Very well,” Eirik snapped and dropped her wand back into the sack. “If you wish to indulge in games, at least choose one that gives me equal pleasure. By Thor, I’ve been long without a woman.” He closed the distance between them and hauled her into his lap.
