Book Review: A Nun For The Viking Warrior by Lucy Morris *AD gifted

I was provided with a free ebook of A Nun For The Viking Warrior by Lucy Morris ahead of the blog tour.

Remember how much I loved The Viking Chief's Marriage Alliance, the author's debut earlier this year? and I did a five favourite quotes? And it was utterly perfect and amazing?

Well, how dare this book be so perfect too.

Forced to wed the warrior

Falling for the man…

Noblewoman Amée Évreaux had pledged her life to God, until her father promised her in marriage to thundering Norseman, Jorund Jötunnson.

After escaping her overbearing father, Amée vows never to fall under another man’s thumb, but her resistance to being Jorund’s wife turns to desire as she gets to know her intriguing new husband. For beneath his fierce exterior she’s glimpsed an unexpectedly pure heart.

If only she can penetrate the fortress that surrounds it…

5 Word Review: Control, love, cruelty, family, betrayal.


The gentle giant of my dreams is here, and I am in love.

We meet Amée first, and she is an excellent heroine. I loved her story - she has had a messy, complicated life and it's made her a messy, complicated character. I loved the scenes of her inner turmoil whether it be about her faith or her attraction to Jorund. She has a great sense of duty to those under the care of her estate, and the conflict she felt when coming up against Jorund was excellent.

And Jorund? Possibly my new favourite romantic hero. I freaking loved him. I loved that he was tough and rough and gentle and caring all at once. He was as generous as Amée and together they made the most wonderful pair.

This is a fast paced romance, with a bit of everything you need for a good story. The romance was enticing, the passion was sizzling, and the action was breath-taking.

I thought that the historical setting was exquisite. I loved the small details that brought the world to life, the different constraints placed on different characters by society and how that helped shape their world. Life was hard, justice was harder, and A Nun for the Viking Warrior really brought the world to life.

This is perfect for fans of Vikings or The Last Kingdom.

I can't wait to see what Lucy Morris writes next, because her first two books have been truly phenomenal.

As a little girl, Lucy Morris was obsessed with myths and legends. She regularly escaped into the adventures of her imagination, with characters who were strong and fierce. Now fully grown she finds she can't forget the stories plaguing her mind and has to write them down. A book by Lucy Morris will sweep you away on a historical adventure filled with vivid characters haunted by their pasts. Her books will have you flying through her pages, desperate to reach her characters passionately romantic happily ever after. 

She lives in Essex, UK, with her husband, two young children, and two cats. She has a massively sweet tooth and loves gin, bubbly and Irn-Bru. A member of the UK Romantic Novelists' Association, she was delighted in 2020 to accept a two-book deal with Harlequin after submitting her story to the Warriors Wanted submission blitz for Viking, Medieval, and Highlander romances.

Writing for Harlequin Historical is a dream come true for her and she hopes you enjoy her books!

  1. I’m normally not a fan of romance books, but the way you describe the character development and the Viking setting it makes me want to pick up thus book. I’m a big fan of anything Viking / norse related so I may just need to add this book to my TBR.

  3. I don't know a great deal about the Vikings but the sound of a thundering Norseman sounds too good to miss! Glad Amée is a sparky-sounding heroine too - great review, Cora :) x
