If the title sounds familiar, that’s because this story is also available in the Summer Lovin’ anthology, under the subtly different title of Lost and Found on Lindisfarne. (Why is it that a title that seems right for an anthology often doesn’t quite seem to work for a standalone? *ponders, and resolves to take more care in selecting ALL titles*)
When single father Chris meets a Viking re-enactor on Lindisfarne, he thinks it’s the perfect recipe for a holiday fling—and nothing more. Ian, or Ulf, as he’s known when in character as a Viking berserker, is a dreadlocked nomad who never stays in one place for long.
Chris had a relationship with a free spirit like Ian before, and it didn’t end well for him or for his bright but troubled daughter Kelis. He’s determined not to risk the stability of her home environment for Ian, no matter how well she gets on with him—and no matter how much Chris is drawn to the man.
But Chris hasn’t reckoned with the Viking way of taking all you’re willing to give—and coming back for more.
