WHAT IT’S ABOUT:
He was her enemy and her lover…
As her cousin Cedric fights battles down south, Rowena unwittingly rides into an enemy war camp, and is taken prisoner by her old friend Lars, who is not what he seems.
Yet Rowena is not helpless. After all, she is a half-witch with a whole lot of magic in her. Too bad she doesn’t know how to use it. Escaping from the camp, she continues to botch up spell after spell. Soon Kendra joins her on the trek back to Huel, along with the latest magical mistake, a flame-burping dragon called Cinders.
When war comes to Land’s End, it brings the one man who threatens to conquer everything in Huel. Her enemy and her lover…the Viking Warlord.

Rosanna Leo, author of Predator’s Kiss
“Magic and mayhem, demons, a dragon and a Viking who has eyes on more than just Land’s End. Another winner in the Rowena Through the Wall series.”

5.0 out of 5 stars Melodie Campbell does it again! July 5, 2014

Rowena and the Viking Warlord is the capstone of Melodie’s Land’s End Trilogy. The funny parts are funnier. The sexy bits are sexier. And the tension is ramped up as Rowena sails a difficult course between duty and love.
The consequences Rowena has to deal with in Rowena and the Viking Warlord make the other adventures look like a walk in the park. Melodie’s research into historical weapons and warfare add weight to the setting. When a soldier is put to death after killing one of his comrades, you can almost hear the heavy axe fall. Equal effort seems to have been put into the creation of the magic in Land’s End. Melodie sets the rules and sticks to them, often sticking it to poor Rowena.
If you’ve read Rowena Through the Wall and Rowena and the Dark Lord, you don’t need me to tell you to pick up Rowena and the Viking Warlord. If you haven’t, buy the whole series and have a great read.
5.0 out of 5 stars Raising the 5-Star Flag! July 3, 2014
Ever since I picked up the first book in the Land’s End series, I’ve been hooked. Melodie Campbell writes foot-stomping funny, yet romantic endearing, stories that keep me turning the electronic pages well past bedtime.

I loved this book and series. The twists & turns were unpredictable. I wasn’t sure who Rowena would choose as her partner until the end. All characters were complex and interesting. This series was a must read for me
