          Brandr let go of her when he came to his weapons in the grass. He knelt down, his profile severely set. “We need to get you to Hakan’s farmstead quickly. One of the women can tend you there.” She rubbed her arms briskly. “Your warming me sounds like a better idea,” she said in her sauciest voice. “If you kiss me like you just did, I promise my tunic won’t get in your way.” The Viking turned...

How to Eat Like a Viking: Bread in Bag…Viking Fast Food

  What’s a busy Viking matron to do when she’s got a gaggle of kids at her skirts and a farm to tend? You know as well I do at the end of the day many mouths will want to be fed.   Like so many moms on the go, the Viking wife and mom had a lot of responsibilities. Sometimes planning dinner falls through the cracks.  Norse women had the same problems you and I do, trying to get through her to do list, but unlike the modern...

Tuesday Teaser: “Try me”

    “I know why I like working alone,” he said. Her wide mouth stretched in a flat smile. “But today you’re looking for the treasure with me.” He almost laughed at having his own words tossed back at him, except his eyes itched and his body ached.
