    When I saw that one of my favorite authors, Lizzie Ashworth, was a part of this anthology I knew I had to read it and I am glad I did! These stories make me want to go to the Netherlands and find myself a Viking, mmm, mmm, mmm. This collection has a plethora of dominant men, one dominant woman and some girl on girl. Those last two aren’t really my thing, but they are still hot as Hades. If you like Alpha males and good Inspiration, ;) then this anthology is what you are looking for! I give this collection 5 stars with 5 hands down the pants.

    A sexy anthology of hot Viking Warriors. These steamy group of stories has a little something for everyone, Alpha men, equally strong woman and plenty of hot sex. I admit there were a few stories I wish were a bit longer because I wasn’t quite ready to say goodbye to these sexy Vikings. I definitely found some new authors to add to my reading list. This is a great read, the characters are excellent, the stories kept me captivated and they are HOT, HOT, HOT. Loved it!

    ***A gifted copy was provided by the author for my honest review****I read all the books in this anthology but I am reviewing the books by Elle James & Delilah Devlin. Enslaved by Elle James – Konrad is a strong, handsome virile man who happens to be the man who takes over tall, raven haired beauty named Brigid who also is the clan leader. She took over for her father when he died. All looked to her and she has done all she could for her people. Now, now is this strong, alpha male. She has done her previous tricks and the old foolish men and their troops left her and her people to their devices but not now. This is a struggle of wills between the two and I LOVED how it ended. Would love to read a follow up story on her sister- I think there is a story brewing there . That is just my opinion. Even though this is a short story, the words flowed and the chemistry is hot .Cant go wrong with that. My rating: 4.4 stars ****How to Train Your Skjaldmaer by Delilah Devlin-The Viking jarl, Torvald, is tricked into marriage by the shieldmadien named Solveig. This story is just like out of the Norse tales. It is about a woman who is trying to prevent being pawned off in marriage so she playacts being the bigger and badder in from of the men to get it around that she is one of the “men” and the man she truly is interested in sees this and gets the wrong impression. When Solgveig meets him she is too busy trying to explain the misaphrension that he laboring under; Watching the mating dance between the two was priceless The ending was the perfect way to end this story. I would like to know how the couple continue their story- The author did such a good job writing the story which flows together . My rating: 4.4 The other stories in the anthologies are great. Great authors under one book with wonderful stories. My overall rating: 4.5 stars ****

    This anthology is a great value!My star rating is based on the two stories that I’ve read so far.How to Train Your Skjaldmaer by Delilah DevlinTorvald was promised one of Hagar’s daughters a wife; one “so fair roses blushed in dismay” but what he got instead was one with a tall angular frame and ruddy complexion. Hagar had pulled a switch on him. It didn’t take Torvald long to realize he much preferred Solveig to her sister.Solveig wasn’t meek and didn’t dress like a maiden but Torvald was intrigued by her. She was strong of body and will; qualities that would serve him well; a lady’s skills could be taught.This is a short story but Delilah Devlin is adept at creating a complete picture with few words. Reading how Torvald and Solvi interact with each other is steamy and entertaining. I thoroughly enjoyed this story.* * * * * * * * * * *Enslaved by Elle JamesKonrad and his soldiers have come to Ireland and conquered a village. He left Norway to get out from under his older brother’s leadership and find a new home. Brigid is the leader of the clan that Konrad has conquered; she would do anything to protect her people.Konrad had Brigid gather the unwed women and announced his intention to take a wife. She offers herself to protect her younger sister from being chosen. She has a plan to drug him to get him to leave her land but things don’t quite work out the way she intended.Their wedding night is nice and steamy; Konrad proves to be a considerate lover. This is a great short story!

    As a fan of Lizzie Ashworth I knew I had to give this anthology a go (just in case you're also a fan of hers, her story is great as always). I really enjoyed the set of stories and each author has the ability to weave a *really enticing* (like really enticing...don't read them at work like I did) story in a short amount of pages. There were a couple of stories that didn't really float my boat in terms of..shall we say, personal preference, but even those still had good elements to them. I really enjoyed the mix of male and female Vikings between the stories. It added a good element to the anthology overall. If you have a pulse, you'll enjoy these stories!

    Conquests is an anthology of thirteen hot Viking romances. They are all short stories packed with strong Viking men and women taking land, money, jewels and love as they see fit.The anthology is made up of thirteen different stories, all written by a different author. Before reading it I had only read books by Elle James so I got a taste of twelve new to me authors. All of the stories had their own style, but all included the history of what we know about Vikings and adding to it with fictional characters and a lot of romance. If your idea of a perfect romance has a strong alpha hero, a woman that can keep up and HOT romance then this anthology is just right for you. I was gifted a copy of this book for an honest review. All conclusions are mine and mine alone.

    Right from the get-go, The Captive by Lizzie Ashworth, set the steamy pace for this medieval Viking collection. My favs are "Asgeirr and the Tree of Life" by Mina Murray; "A Varangian Guest," Melissa Fuchs; and "How to Train Your Skjaldmaer," by Delilah Devlin. But all are well worth it if you like a little spicy with your "history."

    Really sad I can't use emojis, you guys. Can't really put my feelings about this anthology into words, I guess. I will say that it seems like finding a genuinely great romance novel is about as likely as my winning the lottery. Heartbreak emoji.

    Usually a collection has a theme, and each author puts her own stamp on it. In this case, the theme was so confining (length, Vikings, M/F) that each story is almost identical. There seemed to be additional constraints requiring that some variant of pseudo-archaic language must be used, so cock, pussy, and clit are replaced by staff, quim, and nubbin - by almost every author! The only variation is whether the willing victim has red or black hair to contrast with the blond invaders.All that said, each story is fairly well written, and if they had been sprinkled among different anthologies, I might have enjoyed them more. But here, the repetition was killing me.

    Enslaved by Elle James was a short and amusing battle of wills between the Viking conquerer and the Celtic beauty.
