The Jarl’s Challenge–A Viking Romance

This is the blurb of The Jarl’s Challenge–A Viking Romance

He broke her nose when they were children. Now he’s telling her to be his wife. Telling her, not asking her.

Borghild doesn’t have much but she has her honor. The only way to keep it is to challenge Eivind, the new jarl, to a holmgang.

Eivind is home from his long trip abroad. He’s laid claim to the throne, now he needs his childhood friend to marry him.

Borghild is as proud as he remembered. A challenge? Let the battle begin.

*Stand-alone short story*

This Viking romance includes a fierce shieldmaiden, a warrior who loves her, a cold Scandinavian Winter, hot romance, and plenty of humor.

Love the cover

I just can’t get over the beautiful cover of The Jarl’s Challenge. It was designed by The Cover Fling and I can tell you that it wasn’t an easy job!

A lot of Viking romances out there have this hulking brute on their covers, often with a naked torso and some kind of fur hanging down his back. Completely wrong historically speaking. I mean, why would you walk around with a naked chest and a fur down your back? It doesn’t make any sense.

Unfortunately, this seems to be what readers expect, judging from the available cover models.

Luckily Anna Volkin from The Cover Fling didn’t give up. She wanted to give my book a stunning cover, but also something that felt “right”.

I would say that she delivered! What do you think?
