Michelle Styles' latest Viking romance from Harlequin Historicals, THE VIKING'S CAPTIVE PRINCESS, received 4 Stars in the December issue of the Romantic Times. Kathe Robin said, "Basing her love story on an ancient Viking legend, Styles spins the tale of a Viking warrior and a princess. She maintains the myth while adding sexual tension, nonstop action and spice." Congratulations on another great review, Michelle!
