The Norse Family Saga Series

A Viking saga of love, revenge, sacrifice, and betrayal.

Bjorn Alfarsson cares nothing for the blood feud that has raged for years between his foster-father and brother. But when Bjorn’s best friend is killed by the son of their bitter enemy, he is drawn into the long-standing conflict. With the safety of his children at risk, Bjorn does whatever is necessary, but the hatred he has wrought threatens to unravel his world. 

Astrid Tryggvisdottir is the daughter of a powerful jarl. What she wants most is to marry a man she loves, and to keep her loved ones protected, but hers is a world fraught with hardship and danger. Her father’s blood feud has now spilled over onto her and her brothers. Astrid must decide whether to sacrifice her own happiness or that of her family. If she chooses wrong, everyone she cares about will be in danger. It is up to her to weave the two families together. 

Book One in the Norse Family Saga.

Determined to make her mother proud and to be the weaver that threads both families together, Astrid takes on her role as Bjorn’s wife. 

Living in the village of her family’s enemy is lonely and terrifying. Harold’s people let her know they want her dead or want her husband, or both. Astrid fears her sacrifice is worthless as she is faced with dark plots and rejection, even from her own husband. 

Bjorn burns. With lust for his wife. With hatred for her family. With the need to protect his own from the enemies surrounding them. 

Having a wife has made Bjorn vulnerable, and within him a resentful war rages. He is Harold’s wolf, a vicious warrior who shows no mercy. He is also his father’s son, and memories long buried surface as his wife’s gentle and kind nature fills his home. He must protect his family with his sword, but he longs to create beauty with them instead.

Out of the chaos, Astrid must unearth a deep well of courage to protect her loved ones and herself. Her hard-won love of Bjorn is put to the test as new families are created and old family ties renewed. 

As the Warrior and the Weaver, the Hero and the Healer, Bjorn and Astrid must use all the tools they possess to overcome their enemies and forge a new life.

A forgotten identity. A found family. Scars from the past. A young man comes of age in the turbulent, violent world of the Viking era. To survive, he must trust the ravens. 

Called only “dog” by a cruel owner, the boy escapes alone through the mid-winter woods guided by two ravens who lead him to safety. With a strength he does not believe he has, the nameless child chooses a name, finds a family, and begins to heal. 

As part of a trading crew, Helgi travels from the far North lands of the Sami to the island of Alba in the West until, as a young man, he arrives in the Great City of Constantinople.

Through much hardship, Helgi grows from boy to man, slave to protector, and from unwanted to beloved. But, no matter how much he is loved or how strong he becomes, Helgi yearns to discover his true identity.

Will the wounds of his past keep him from forging his own future? Or will he transform them into marks of strength?
