His orders are clear: launch a raid against England and bring home the spoils of war. But the prophecy is also clear: General Torben will take a foreign bride—one who is a seer and healer just like his mother. The eldest princess of England is said to be just that…a beautiful, charming, and headstrong woman. But he’s a Viking army general and she’s an English princess—and one who is already promised to the king of Tara.

Two worlds collide in this epic historical fiction centered on an undeniable chemistry that smolders against the odds. Richly written and injected with moments of humor, this action-packed romantic tale will leave you breathless.

When you pick up a Quinn Loftis book prepare to be dazzled! She writes books that keep you captivated with humor, deep respect for intimacy in a marriage bond, and finding a partner who is your equal in every way! The Viking’s Chosen is no exception! I skipped a class just to finish it! I’m just bummed that I have to wait 8 months for the next book!

Torben and Allete couldn’t come from more different worlds! They both will do whatever is best for their kingdom. Both don’t like what is necessary to achieve that! Torben’s mother is an Oracle who prophesied that Torben needs to kill his jarl (think King) and marry a foreign princess to help his clan from becoming extinct with jarl Magnus’s blood thirsty ways and insanity. And how is he to marry a princess who is already engaged to a King from another kingdom?

This King Cathal is pure evil and is constantly putting Princess Allete down, putting her in her place and physically abusing her in places no one else can see. But Torben and his second in command Brant witnesses plenty of it. Torben and Brant are given a glamor to look like English guards and are assigned to the Princess. Torben and Allete find themselves falling for each other. Allete thinks he is just a guard and is still off limits for any future with him. Torben can do little to the evil King without being hanged himself for treason or causing Allete’s family to suffer with the veiled threats if she should try to get away.

There is non stop action and adventure and time to find that they have a lot in common and to watch Torben, the hulking Viking as he is, to be very tender with Allete! You can’t help but sigh when you read when the two of them are alone together. There is only kissing between the two of them when they are alone, which is never that long. Or he is brushing her hair and cleaning her up after King Cathal has had his hands on her. See, Sigh!!!!!!


Allete is also a healer, like Torben’s mother, and people don’t really like to see the magic because they are afraid. So Allete heals people in secret. Those she heals, loves her for it.

Brant keeps me grinning, he is funny and a very hulking Viking who likes to wield his hammer! He likes Allete’s sister Dayna. Dayna has a slightly foul mouth and opens her mouth before she speaks and Brant loves it. Her words are “arse”, “bloody hell” and the like. I can’t wait to see where these two go too!

If you like stories that leave on a cliff hanger, Viking’s, Kingdoms, good vs. evil, action, finding your soulmate, healing, magic, Oracles, stories that make you sigh then this might be for you!

I really need the next book now! I will be rereading this book over and over!! Well, probably the whole series too!
