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 To learn more about Catherine Sharp and Viking's Desire, follow Catherine on Facebook, Twitter, Linked In and visit www.catherinesharp.webs.com.

British Museum Opens New Gallery SUTTON HOO AND EUROPE AD 300-1100 Today
by BWW News Desk - Mar 26, 2014

A new display of the British Museum's unparalleled early medieval collections which include the famous Sutton Hoo treasure is scheduled to open in Room 41 in March 2014 made possible through a generous donation by Sir Paul and Lady Jill Ruddock. It is the first full refurbishment of the gallery since 1985, involving replacement of the flooring and roof, and renovation of the internal architecture. Marking 75 years since their discovery, the gallery's centrepiece will be the finds from the Sutton Hoo ship burial in Suffolk, one of the most spectacular and important discoveries in British archaeology. Excavated in 1939, on the eve of the Second World War, this grave inside a 27m-long ship may have commemorated an Anglo-Saxon king who died in the early AD 600s. It remains the richest intact burial to survive from Europe. Many of its incredible treasures, like the helmet, gold buckle and whetstone have become icons not only of the British Museum, but of the Early Medieval as a whole.
