Princess Isabel of Norsex was riding her horse through the woods, daydreaming of a strong brave man who would come and claim her for his own. Then suddenly her horse throws her and she is tossed into the raging river. Barely keeping the fight going to stay alive she is half conscious when she is rescued by a handsome man Isabel begins to think of as her “angel.” Awakening in her chamber, Isabel is being kept sedated and told only that the vicious Viking warrior who attacked her is being punished by her brother, King Ranulf. Knowing the truth that the Viking didn’t attack her but was responsible for saving her life, Isabel steals down to the dungeon and discovers that her angel has been tortured and is barely alive. Knowing she must help him, no matter the wrath it will bring on her when Ranulf finds out what she has done, Isabel nurses him and then guides the beaten man back to his men.

Two years have passed since that fateful night when the beautiful young girl saved Kol Thorleksson from sure death in Ranulf’s “pit”. Knowing only her name was Isabel, Kol is shocked to find she is a princess, and sister to the man he has sworn vengeance against! Having easily defeated King Ranulf’s army, and conquered his Saxon kingdom, Calldarington, the legendary Viking warrior won’t rest until he has what he has come for, Ranulf’s head! With danger lurking at every turn, Isabel finds herself torn between her allegiance to her brother and people, and the growing love she is fighting against for Kol, The Sea King.

First time author, Jolie Mathis, pens a fantastic tale of twisted intrigue, sizzling romance and bold adventure with her debut novel, The Sea King. Kol is a tortured hero who was shunned by his own mother, and is cursed to roam the seas without ever knowing that one emotion he so needs. Isabel has been betrayed by the brother she thought loved and protected her. Bitter enemies are the barbarian Kol and the Saxon Isabel who vividly come to life as passionate lovers in the pages of The Sea King!
