A Sons of the North Romance novel from Sandra Lake, author of The Warlord's Wife, who takes readers to 12th-century Scandinavia where two hearts clash in furious passion… The daughter of a Northern warlord, Katia is known as the Iron Princess for her mettle in battle. Headstrong and defiant, she instigates sword duels on a whim with little regard for her own safety. Katia would rather die on her feet as a warrior than live as a token wife and child bearer for a husband who keeps her castled as if she were a prisoner. Lothair is the illegitimate son of the Duke of Saxony, who was granted the title of baron, a castle and lands. Raised in an atmosphere of mistrust and deceit, he rejects the concept of husbandry and wants a life of purpose and sacrifice in the pursuit of security for the Baltic Sea. And when fate brings the Iron Princess and reluctant baron together, Katia and Lothair discover they are kindred spirits with fiery temperaments-and insatiable desires-to match… INCLUDES A PREVIEW OF THE WARLORD'S WIFE Praise for The Warlord's Wife "With compelling characters and a clever plot, The Warlord's Wife will appeal to readers obsessed with TV's Vikings, and who miss the classic Viking romances of Catherine Coulter or Johanna Lindsey."-Heroes and Heartbreakers "Lake's debut historical romance is sure to appeal to those who enjoy spirited heroines, grumpy alpha heroes, and a slow sweet journey to everlasting love."-Smexy Books "Man, this was a fun book! … I cut my teeth on Johanna Lindsey, and this book reminded me so much of those experiences."-Dear Author Sandra Lake is the author of The Warlord's Wife.
