Tara's Song Read ✓ 102 Chieftain Rorik Tara slowly overcomes her fear as Rorick introduces her to the joy of passionate lo This book captured my attention immediately There is no lull while we get to know the characters the very first page begins with the Viking raid upon the convent in Britain where the heroine Tara lives as a novice nun The background information is filled in here and there throughout the book though so the reader still gets to know about the characters particularly Tara as the book is in first person as told by the heroineAlthough the book s blurb describes her as having to get over her fear of the hero Rorik she never came across as being overly fearful of him some fear yes but not nearly as much as I would expect of an average woman in any century She seemed afraid for her soul due to her religion and his than of the man himselfNormally I do not care for books where the hero and heroine are separated from each other against their will for any length of time but in this book there was so much going on during that separation rather than her sitting around missing him that it was not the unpleasant reading I come to expect from the periods of separationThe plot ran along smoothly and never felt forced to me Sometimes it feels as though an author has tried to add scenes or situations just to add length to a book but everything seemed to flow fairly naturally there were one or two times where I felt Tara seemed to change from anger to love behave out of character or do an about face with her beliefs a bit too uickly but who can say how a woman of that time and with that upbringing and one who admits she needs a man s strength would do given the same circumstancesFor me the only real draw back for the story was the level of steamthere was not really much there The intimate scenes were rather brief and with almost no details But on the other hand there weren t a bunch of ridiculously flowery phrases used to describe these scenes either something I absolutely detest in romance novels by some authors I would have also liked to have had a bit information at the end of the book I won t say what I would have wanted answered because I don t want to give anything away but I didn t want the story to end anyway always a sign of a good book for meAs to the characters I liked both the hero and the heroine uite a lot Because the story was first person from Tara s point of view there was not as much of Rorik as I would have liked to have seen I felt he was a nice balance of the civilized male modern readers tend to demand in a hero with what would be realistic for a 10th century Viking warrior he was neither completely civilized nor totally barbaric It was also endearing to see his interaction and love for his children and his father s with his grandchildren Tara also was an interesting blend Modern readers often like to see a strong female lead but women in the 10th century simply were not usually overly independent She showed both strength of self and a dependence on a strong man depending on the situation There were many interesting supporting characters as well Some I loved and some I loathed but they all came together to make the book one I had a hard time putting down I read it in two daysAlthough it is rare for me to give a book a 5 star rating I gave one to this book because I couldn t give it 4 12 I would have taken off a half star for the low steam and the things left unanswered at the conclusion they could have easily been answered with a page or two epilogue Since I immediately felt the urge to flip back to the beginning and reread the book though I felt it deserved than the 4 stars I normally give a book I enjoyed Because I am on disability and not interested in watching the television I read books all the time It has been a while since I have discovered a book I ve enjoyed as much as this one I was fortunate enough to stumble upon this on openlibraryorg and am so grateful I borrowed it It is certainly one I will revisit in the future

Tara's Song Read ✓ 102 Beautiful devout young Tara a novice in a country abbey finds her cloistered life suddenly destroye Tara s Song by Barbara Ferry Johnson is yet another middling Viking romance that disappoints Written in the late 70 s at the height of the bodice ripper era you d expect this Viking Romance to rapacious and fun but I found it rather ho humHaving been betrayed by love the h is not a virgin stunning blonde Tara enters into a convent Despite what the book burb claims Tara is actually not a novice but a full fledged nun who has taken all her religious vows For some mysterious reason some of her fellow nuns ensure that Tara study the pagan Nordic runes Obviously the elder sisters knew their convent would be overtaken by a horde of ravenous Vikings and runic readings would come in handy for protection later onTara s new life begins when she is captured by Rorik He of the long curly reddish blond hair and two long mustaches that reach past his chin but no beard I imagine him as a young metal god like a cross between Dave Mustaine James Hetfield only with lots of muscles But alas even though Rorik is a marauder he s BORING As in so many Viking books I ve read the hero is a bad ass warrior who kills and slays hundreds But we rarely see Rorik do any of this as it s told in constrictive first person perspective The first person POV is really a hindrance here Tara tells rather than shows and there s a lot of info dumping and information overload some so very inaccurate like eating potatoes in Norway in the 900 s Reminded me of the chocolate colored eyes of the OW in Johanna Lindsey s Hearts of Fire Research people It s a basic thing The Vikings were also portrayed as dirty and unkempt never bathed with un groomed beards and wore clich d two horned helmets in battleAnyway Rorik doesn t force himself on Tara like a pillaging Viking would at first he romantically seduces her into his bed Meh Give me a Viking who s a pillager FIRST then learns to be romantic and civilized later on to a certain extent Where s the fun in the fantasy if the hunky Viking doesn t take me er I mean the heroine over his shoulder and have his wickedly erotic way with her on sight Why does he have to charm her into bed That s for Regency rakes not Vikings At least there is a naughty twist Rorik is a polygamist and he takes Tara home to his harem of wives That s right Rorik has not one but two wives and Tara is number three As a pious Christian former nun she resents this So she prays for the day that Rorik will cast off his other wives divorce them and be with only her because that that would the honorable thing For her When Tara won t give into Rorik s lust he just goes to the other wives to satisfy him But it s Tara he loves Eventually one of Rorik s wives plots against them and Rorik and Tara are kidnapped and separately sold into slavery into the eastWhen the hero is boring and the hH are parted for a long time in the book I don t mind as long as the heroine is up to fun adventures Regrettably Tara s adventures fall a bit flat At least with lesser known bodice ripper authors like Melissa Hepburn or Janette Seymour there were some amusing exploits Here Tara s escapades consist of getting the flu during the worst winter ever or getting her first taste of eating oranges There s Tara in Norway shopping now there s Tara in Constantinople shoppingThe most interesting character in the book is Olav an older Viking who has also been captured as well as castrated and is Tara s faithful companion He could have been a complex character but alas Ferry takes his personality heart and emotions away with his balls and his sole devotion to Tara is that of a slavish dog like protector not a man who can ever physically or even emotionally love It would have been intriguing to see just for the WTF factor like Bertrice Small s Enchantress Mine but no nothing special in this bookActually that s not 100% true as there is one mildly engaging scenario when Tara gets kidnapped and then is willingly seduced by a handsome and haughty overbearing lord Although she enjoys his lovemaking she finds him so arrogant how dare he lust for her body so Just days later she is dismayed to see a sexy young male slave dance his way into her lover s bed Guess Tara s not as hot as she thinks Again a faintly similar situation was portrayed in Enchantress Mine although in a much shocking and entertaining fashion and I wasn t crazy about EM because I hated the heroine so to me Tara s Song is the lesser bookO ancient gods of the Norse At times this book was as dry as the turkey from National Lampoon s Christmas Vacation HoweverIt does get good in the last few pages where Rorik once and for all displays his brutal warrior skills instead of us just being told about it He cruelly dispatches his enemies in a slaughter demonstrating his true awesome Nordic might Too bad too late Where was that Rorik 400 pages ago2 stars D Baker roll 1924 Eastern
