Blind Mercy by Violetta Rand


The Sigurdsson family legacy continues...

A woman who prayed for a hero...

Orphaned at a young age, Rachelle Finnes prayed for a hero to rescue her from her tragic life in England. When her only kinsman goes missing after the Battle of Stamford Bridge, Rachelle braves the aftermath of the battlefield to find him.

A man who lost everything...

Damned by the gods for surviving the bloodiest defeat in Norse history, Jarl Tyr Sigurdsson is still determined to get home. Hiding until nightfall so he can escape to his ship, his dangerous endeavor is disrupted when he's accidently discovered by a beautiful Saxon.

Brought together by war, Rachelle and Tyr face many obstacles. Can sworn enemies find peace through love, or will fate tear them apart?

This is the second book in Violetta Rand's Blind series and I personally have to say I love it! I have always had a thing for vikings and that era, so when I saw this series I knew I had to read them. There is just something about Tyr that makes you fall for him right away, he's proud, arrogant and courageous but at times seems vulnerable in a way that makes him more lovable. He feels guilt over the death of his brother and there is a scene in the woods that brought tears to my eyes. I have a bit of an obsession for him and I'm not ashamed to admit it lol. With the sexual tension between Tyr and Rachelle I must say I enjoyed it very much!  

There is so much in this book, the greed and jealousy as well as the betrayal will send your head spinning! I was able to connect with the characters during everything they went through, granted there were times I wanted to punch certain people and at other times I was fist pumping and almost jumping up and down. I grew a bit teary eyed during a certain reunion....I know I'm an emotional mess lol. 

It's books like this that make reading a joy as well as an adventure! The author is able to not only entertain me with her wit but also able to draw me into another time. That in itself is unique and I for one am anxiously awaiting the next installment!!! I would rate this book 4 out of 5 stars!!!!! Cannot wait to read more by this author!!!!
