To Find A Viking Treasure

To Find a Viking Treasure
By Gina Conkle

GENRE: Historical Romance 

Survival’s in his blood…

Rough-souled Brandr’s ready for a new life far from Uppsala, but the Viking has a final task —protect the slave, Sestra. Her life's full of hardship…until she learns the location of a treasure. With war coming, stealing the enemy's riches will save lives, but only one man can defend her —the fierce Viking scout, Brandr.

The two have always traded taunts, now they must share trust. Passions flare as secrets unfold, leading one to make a daring sacrifice on their quest To Find a Viking Treasure


Brandr sliced the oars through water…back and forth, his body’s motion hypnotic and smooth. “Go ahead. Talk to me.”

The Viking could be a mystical warrior dressed in black against waning fog, his graveled voice working a kind of silken magic. Sun shined through clouds, the pearled orb anointing his head. Perhaps Odin did send Brandr to save the day.

Wraiths rose up from the channel as if to push them along. Did the Norse gods want them to succeed? She didn’t believe in Odin and his Valkyries, but the stories Vikings spun at night entranced her.

“You could tell me what you’ll do with your reward,” she said.

He snorted. “I said you could talk to me. Not the other way around.”

“That’s not how it works. People take turns talking and listening to each other. It’s called conversation.” She angled her head coyly. “Vikings can do it. I’ve seen it happen.”

Brandr squinted at tree tops rising above the mist. “Never been much for talk.”

“Your mouth never stops when trading jibes with me.”

His chuckle was raspy and low. “You have a way of loosening my tongue.”

To her shame, his laugh cut a scorching path through her body and her legs fell open under her skirts. Her knees were heavy, and she left them open.

“You’re a warrior long in service to Lord Hakan. Surely you’ll get a bigger reward than a handful of coins?”

His tarnished silver eyes pinned her. “Maybe I get you.”

A steamy Viking tale. Told among days of political upheaval, everything familiar will soon be gone. Even the alehouse in which slave girl Sestra works is burnt to the ground, presumably to "help" their cause. Being braver than she knows, or perhaps because she has no other choice, Sestra is sent off on a mission, a treasure hunt, with the solid, darkly handsome Brandr.

I will warn you, the treasure found comes in different ways and forms.
This is not a read for the feint - hearted. There is skin involved, near - death, and secrets revealed.
Will Sestra learn more about herself and change her mind about what her future should look like?
I would love to also have a less sexually charged version for younger readers. 
This is a strong about discovering self and true strengths.

Hi, I’m Gina Conkle and I write Viking and Georgian romance, which makes for interesting characters in my head. I grew up in southern California and despite all that sunshine, I love books over beaches and stone castles over sand castles. Now I live in Michigan with my favorite alpha male, Brian, and our two sons where I occasionally garden and cook. Living in snow gives me the perfect excuse to get lost in reading and writing. I enjoy connecting with readers at conferences and on social media.
