    In the minds of the Saxons, perhaps the most frightening of this generation of Vikings is probably Dragon Hakonson. However, the mighty warrior knows that the times are a changing, as he must marry a Saxon to complete the triad of weddings for peace. Though he will do the honorable thing for his people, Dragon goes hunting by himself one last time before his trip down the alter.

    While hunting, Dragon meets Rycca, a Saxon woman garbed in male clothing obviously on the lam. Rycca does not want to marry a barbarous Viking even in the name of peace, but decides to feel passion once in her lifetime with this handsome escort. As the Viking and Saxon war with words, they share two common feelings: love and not desiring an unknown mate, but neither one realizes that each one is the other side's peace offering.

    This reviewer has never before seen any publisher release a trilogy in two months for an established author let alone a debut writer. Anyone who reads COME BACK TO ME, or the two previous novels packaged in one book,(DREAM OF ME and BELIEVE IN ME) will understand why Josie Litton has been accorded this honor. Her latest tale completes this strong medieval romantic trilogy with a powerful plot starring two energetic and charming characters. The previous lead couples also return so that the series is wrapped up completely. Though this novel can stand alone, sub-genre fans will want to obtain the three stories to read over a few pleasant days.
