#BookReview – “Taming the Wolf” by Virginie Marconato

Book Review graphic


Merewen of Ashwick awakes tied to a post at a slave market with no recollection of how she ended up there. Struck by her beauty and spirit, Wolf, an Icelander exiled for a crime he did not commit, feels pity and buys her.

The attraction between them sizzles – and neither knows how to deal with it. Ashamed by her fascination towards a man who purchased her, Merewen fights her attraction, determined not tofall for him.

Wolf senses this fiery woman might well be the one who will allow him to put the pain of his past behind him. And so, knowing he cannot keep her as a slave, he asks her to be his wife.

Merewen refuses his offer. But living next to her reluctant champion makes it difficult to hold on to her resolve…


I love Viking romances but don’t read them often, so I was thrilled to snag a copy of Virginie Marconato’s newest book. It’s book one in the Noble Norseman series, and man, I don’t think I’ve ever read a Viking book with such an honorable, decent hero. Although Wolf buys his heroine, Merewen, at a slave market, he’s not a pillaging brute. He ends up saving her from what was sure to be a lifetime of abuse. Wolf and Merewen were great together. They’ve both experienced pain and trauma, and though miscommunication and self-doubt often divided them, their desire and obvious need for each other kept pulling them back together.

For readers who love hot Viking romance with a strong heroine and honorable hero, Taming the Wolf is for you.
