Catherine Sharp Releases "Viking's Desire"by BWW News Desk - Apr 10, 2014
Author Catherine Sharp is proud to announce the recent release of her novel Viking's Desire. In the novel, Viking's Desire, Vikings raid England for treasure but the Jarl Eriik Thorennson finds more than treasure in England, he finds the Lord of the manor's beautiful daughter. He takes her back to his homeland and after many twists and turns and her kidnapping back to England, they fall in love and live happily ever after. The book trailer for Viking's Desire was revealed today on DGT Book Promotion news. In addition, Catherine Sharp shared her insights this week in an interview on the Reading and Writing Addiction blog about the release of Viking's Desire. Sharp's interview can be followed at www.readinwritin.blogspot.com and the official trailer for Viking's Desire can be viewed on YouTube.
About The Book
Sailing to the west of the Norse lands, the Vikings lay siege to an English castle inland. After spying a raven haired beauty, who turns out to be Lillian, the lord's daughter, Eriik, the Viking Jarl, is determined to take more than Saxon riches back to his home. In order to save her beloved home from complete destruction, Lillian accompanies Eriik and his band of raiders to his homeland. Little does she know that not only is she losing her home and family, but will soon lose her heart to the wild, handsome Viking as well. For this stubborn, independent beauty, this might be the utmost indignity of all. Viking's Desire is not only a sexy love story, but an exploration as well. It takes the reader from the quiet knolls of England to the stormy, remote terrain of the Vikings... a thrilling, romantic adventure from start to finish.
Praise for Viking's Desire:
'What a wonderful story of finding love in unexpected places. The story of Eriik and Lillian was full of danger...suspense...and the makings of true love. The author did a great job with the storyline and characters. Well written and it kept me interested from the beginning. A very enjoyable sexy story.' - Dsaraceni, Amazon reviews
About The Author
Catherine Sharp says, 'This exciting romantic adventure is for anyone who believes true love can win out over any and all obstacles. The romance between the lovely heroine Lillian and the savagely handsome Viking Eriik is breathtaking.'
The author is married with two sons. She loves to read and write romances and likes the way romance builds bridges to other worlds which only her imagination can take her. At a time when she was reading voraciously, but not getting exactly what she was yearning for, she started to write the kind of story she was searching for. Catherine found that putting her own words to paper was so much fun that now, even with a job, a husband, and two sons, she always finds time to not only read, but write.
Viking's Desire (216 pages, ISBN# 978-1496084897) is available at Amazon.com
