Ragnor Magnusson is bored. Not even swiving the most beautiful woman in the Norselands seems to be keeping his interest. So, he decides to go a-Viking ... and he and his men are the only ones left, stuck in a battle with the hated Saxons ... and losing it. Right in the middle of combat, he falls overboard, dragged by the Saxon warrior he was facing. On his struggle back to the surface, Ragnor feels that the Saxon keeps trying to pull him down. When he is about to give up, he sees a bright light which he wishes to follow, but two images beckon: one is his long lost brother Torolf, as he would look had he still been alive, the other is a red-headed goddess with huge green-eyes filled with fear, who seems to need his help. Ragnor finally succeeds in getting out of the water only to realize that he is surrounded by a bunch of weird looking strangers that have a funny way of speaking.
Sandra Hillís Wet & Wild, is without a shadow of a doubt, one of my favorite titles of her Vikings time travel series. Once again, a member of the Magnusson family is thrown forward in time, this time right in the middle of a Navy SEAL training facility. If you remember Magnus and his brood from the previous title A Very Virile Viking, Ragnor is Magnusí eldest, the one who was left behind along with his daughter Madrene. This book is full of Sandra Hillís trademark sense of humor. Ragnor is an absolutely delicious hero. Who wouldnít fall in love with such a funny, irreverent hunk of a man, who can be infuriating at times and yet so lovable. Alison is the reluctant heroine, but she canít be 'reluctant' for long. Ragnor is one determined Viking. Sandra Hill is a master of the romantic comedy for a reason, and Wet & Wild proves it beautifully. I look forward to her future titles and I am proudly adding her latest time travel romantic comedy to my 'keeper' shelf.
