I thought the characters were done well and the romance between them wonderful. The heat level was VERY sensual and had me squirming in my seat. We do get a HEA but this story did not have an epilogue: View all 5 comments. I love this author, but the names got so confusing at times, I didn’t know if we were talking about a boat or a reason. But I still liked it. Nov 04, MsRomanticReads rated it really liked it Shelves: This review can also be found on my blog. This was my first read by Jianne Carlo, and I was pleasantly surprised.
Well, the story takes place in the 10th century AD, and the characters are Vikings.

However, I was hooked from the beginning, so I am glad that I decided to stick with it and see where the story went. Skatha was the type of heroine I love to read about.
She may have been young and a virgin, but despite being blind, she was independent, kind, and she had spunk. Women cook, birth and complain. As soon as they felt more comfortable around each other, they each confessed their deepest secrets.
When he learns of her impairment, not only do his protective instincts go into overdrive, but his admiration for her soars — for her inner strength, the way she views the world, and the way she navigates it. It was just sweet to seeing her teach the big lug a thing or two.
Malice Striker by Jianne Carlo – FictionDB
They had excellent chemistry together which led up to great sex. The sex scenes burned up the pages. It may sound ridiculous, but I giggled a few times because of the verbiage used, but it stayed true to the time period I think. The author was quite descriptive which just further sucked you in no pun intended. He was capable of being gentle and romantic. Once all the drama died down, it was time for a spot of humor.
There are a few funny scenes between him and the strict abbess. That was the perfect way of making him jiannf hard to regain the love of his life. He inhaled the fresh sweetness of a new morn, the morn he and Skatha were to say their vows, and grinned like a sotted court jester.
I look forward to book two maliice I hope there will be a cameo of these two.
This was sweet, funny, sizzling and easy to read. I received a review copy from the author. A review in exchange was not promised. Oct stgiker, Sassafrass rated it it was amazing Shelves: I just love Jianne Carlo because no matter if it’s paranormal, contemporary or historical, she’s got these hot alpha men and strong heroines that would be just as strong without a man. This was awesome book! Yes, I went there. The story starts off with a bang.
When the fierce viking threatens her friends, Skatha steps forward and reveals her identity. The writer created jiqnne characters that were vibrant and easy to like. How wrong I was.
Brokk was the quintessential alpha hero — strong but caring. While Skatha was the perfect heroine — spunky yet vulnerable. They were perfect for each other in every way. Even in their honesty. After a rocky start to their relationshipBrokk and Skatha were truthful with each other. He told her the truth about the events that brought them together. And despite the reality that it could mean the end for herSkatha revealed everything about herself.
Carlo created the perfect couple — each with their own physical imperfections and insecurities. This muti-layered story is very character driven.
But the bones of every good romance novel is the HEAT. Carlo definitely brought the heat with this steamy story. The love scenes were scorching hot and OMG! The love between the two leads was wildly romantic and they admitted their love early on in the story. Brokk stole a piece of my heart with his unconditional acceptance of Skatha.
Even though he over-reacted a bit in his need to protect her it only endeared him to this reader even more. And now we come to the climactic ending that even I never saw coming. The true villain was revealed with a flurry of surprising twists and turns. Even more welcome was the bit of humor between Brokk and the Abbess at the end.
Malice Striker is a top notch historical romance. This story grabbed my attention and kept me flipping those pages well into the night.
Just like that delicious Oreo cookie. Nov 20, Jody rated it malie liked it. Malice Striker is a thoroughly entertaining read that has likable characters, a sweet and sexy romance, and an intriguing bit of paranormal malkce in to make it even more intriguing.
It has all these wonderful qualities but at times there’s almost too many outside characters that make it confusing and the plot points involving war and revenge suffer because of this.
As the good guys didn’t know who was the enemy, neither did I as the numerous name dropping became overwhelming. Those minor issues Malice Striker is a thoroughly entertaining read that has likable characters, a sweet and sexy romance, and an intriguing bit of paranormal etriker in to make it even more intriguing.
Those minor issues didn’t detract from my overall enjoyment of the jinne though as the unique heroine and to die for hero completely won me over. Their love story IS a love story as they fully accept each other’s less than perfect selves. Skatha’s parentage carl both worldly and otherworldly which makes her a valuable commodity.
Because of her jianme though she doesn’t see herself as thus which is why she’s kept it hidden and why she’s amazed by the feelings Brokk inspires in her. She’s extremely independent which I found wonderful, even if a bit unbelievable for the times, and her other unique abilities added a bit of exoticness to her demure nature.
Living in an Abbey you’d expect her to be fearful of sex but that isn’t the case, she jumps in wholeheartedly. I was a bit disappointed too with the jianbe of her blindness but saw it coming the moment I started the story. Brokk is a wonderful hero who’s sexy and caring and even though he could be bitter towards women because of a prior bad experience I never saw him act cruelly. He was particularly charming with his uncertainties as how to court Skatha and it made me love him even more.
Their sexual interludes were sweet yet steamy and perfectly spaced throughout the story. I wholeheartedly bought into their romance considering its abrupt beginning. The core group of secondary characters, Brokk’s family and the women who protect Skatha, were equally delightful and can easily segue into maluce books. These characters both helped and humorously hindered Brokk and Skatha’s malcie and their shenanigans brought a smile to my face.
The paranormal and mythological aspects of the story were only touched on briefly and I wish these issues were explained in greater detail which perhaps they will in future books. The revenge plot and the too quickly concluded ending were a bit disappointing but the main characters and their romance were the best part of the book.
