When historical romance writer Kimberly Talbot finds a displaced, injured Viking at her campfire, her life sure starts to get complicated. She can’t just leave him there. Besides, what sort of writer would she be if she didn’t take up this splendid opportunity for some hands-on research of the sexy Viking god variety?

All she has to do is keep her heart out of the firing line.

Asger, son of Liufr, wakes up in a strange, cursed land. He's out of time, injured, and unable to shift. Drawn to the flame-haired kona by her intoxicating scent and the promise of food and shelter, he has no choice but to trust the woman his wolf claims is their mate.

He doesn’t belong in these strange times, but does Kim belong in his? A choice has to be made

Claimed by Her Viking Wolf by Doris O'Connor, this one is a roller coaster ride. Went from being really good, to being meh, to being okay. I felt like there was an emotional disconnect for me. I wanted it to be better than it was. Having said that, it is good, just I expected more.
Kimberly is camping with her sister, and they get an unexpected guest from the past. Way past. Like he is a real Viking past. Kimberly shows her guts, courage, and compassion. I liked that very much. She is a historical romance writer so meeting a man who could come from one of the pages of her novels was more than she ever expected.
Asger, son of Liufr he is a different character. He has many layers and they are all complex, I think perhaps I did not understand all of the layers he had, and there fore felt a disconnection to this story.
Over all it is good premise and good character connection. The time travel piece actually gets pretty, well trippy. But it is good over all. I am glad I took this interesting and new journey.
