My Historical Novels

Something about the stories and how I am getting on with them.

An update on Jealousy of a Viking.

I decided to send Jealousy to Next Chapter. It is available in all formats, including audio, from a number of different platforms as well as Amazon. Barnes and Noble, Kobo, Apple, Nook etc. and in hardback and paperback as well as an ebook and audio book.

Here’s a bit about the book.

Helgha is a descendant of Adelbehrt from Vengeance of a Slave. Her mother is the one who has him as an ancestor, and her father is a Viking, come to England with the Great Heathen Army in 865. Helgha is their eldest child.

One day, when she is foraging in the forest, she meets a lost young man, Erik. His horse has been injured and cannot be ridden, and so he leaves it at Helgha’s home and borrows one. Helgha becomes infatuated with the young man, and he her. He visits a number of times.

Helgha’s father challenges Erik as to his intentions. Erik admits his father will not countenance a marriage as Helgha is of a lower class and he must marry someone who can bring influence. Helgha’s father challenges Erik to a duel, and Erik kills him.

On the spur of the moment, Erik grabs Helgha and takes her with him to his home in Jorvik (York).

Everything is fine until Erik marries the woman his father has chosen for him, then the trouble starts. Both women are jealous of each other. This jealousy leads to accusations and a bleak future for Helgha.

The book has 4.7* on Amazon.

Here’s what the narrator said about it.

I am absolutely loving the book and have read on to chapter 20 in the guise of ‘prep’ but honestly, it’s because I am loving the story! These are the signs of a really enjoyable, great read and it’s a real pleasure (and honour) to have the opportunity to narrate it.

I like your writing, the flow is elegant and informative and utterly compelling. Absolutely fab. Your amazing narrative flow is the absolute backbone of this story.

You really are a great writer and although this is only the second book of yours I have read, I am keen to add more to my recreational reading list! There is an honesty of emotion and emotional strength in your writing that I absolutely adore

When they are sold as slaves and taken to distant Britannia, Adelbehrt vows that one day he will escape and take revenge on the Romans. But escape is not so easy. Nor is taking on the might of Rome. How can Adelbehrt achieve his desire to exact revenge on the Roman army? And will he be destroyed by his hatred?
