Surely there must be a giant market out there among Christian romance readers for nuns/holy women/Christians abducted by Vikings who then convert their abductors? You'd get it all: mad pagan violence, lots of barbarian chest heaving, the hand of God and so forth, and get to have a nice Christian marriage at the end.

I suspect that even a trashy romance novelist knows that the Vikings were far to smart to throw away a MANLY pagan religion for some whimpy Christian god. But the Romans were rather different - how manly can a guy be if he wears a toga (long gown) or a tunic (short gown).
Of course, there was the army with all them swords but I think all the conversion novels I read involved neurotic Roman patricians. Who knew that it was so difficult to find a good virgin in Ancient Rome and that the price was so high?

I have always imagined that Christian virgins had accesss to some sort of magic scent in Rome. It would explain a lot.
