No sooner had his marriage vows been uttered, (at the point of a sword) Leif Nabboddrson, a mighty Jarl of Denmark is shoved off his Drakkars, bound hand and foot, into the sea.

Instead of drowning, he washes up upon the shores of a strange and wondrous beach, and the woman who forced the sea out of his lungs with a remarkable, life saving kiss, is his treacherous bride. Or is she?

Upon her Nordic grandmother's admittance to a nursing home, Katla 'Kat' Jonsdottir was forced to fend for herself on the harsh streets of San Francisco until fate deals her an incredible hand and her life is turned upside down by the arrival of a Viking warrior.

Childhood legends come to life, trust and betrayal are at constant odds, and the attraction between Leif and Kat is too strong to be ignored.

Leif finds himself washed up on the shore of a foreign place and his savior has the face of the woman who orchestrated the killing of many of his family and men: the woman promised to be his wife, Katla. On their to be wedding day Katla schemed to have his ship and men ambushed because of her love for another man.

Katla does not realize the pain and harm she has caused until it is done and she sees first hand just what all her scheming has brought on.

Can Kat fix the wrong her ancestor Katla did to Leif Nabboddrson so many years ago? Because of jealousy and hate, a grave wrong was done to Leif and his family. All her life Kat's grandmother has told her that a man will come and she must follow. When Leif washes up on the shore Kat begins to think that he might be the man, but to where she must follow him is still the question.

Kat may look like her ancestor Katla but that seems to be the only thing they have in common. She is a smart and feisty woman who will always stand by the people she cares about. Leif is a gorgeous alpha male that cares for all those under him and learns that love is a good thing and heals many wounds.

Under a Viking Moon is a wonderful story full of love, intrigue and action. This story had me glued to the pages from the very beginning. Tami Dee draws the reader into her beautiful world and keeps you enthralled until the end. With great characters full of love and depth this story is a must read. I cannot wait to see just what comes next.
