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.

IIRC there are quite a lot of those type of books here, though sadly they're all in Norwegian. But plenty of Irish holy women/young girls raised in Convents who are abducted and then converts Eirik/Harald/Bjorn whatever.

Though then again the Norwegian romance book marked is pure gold. The best of (worst of?) which is Margit Sandemo's epic The Legend of the Ice People, and makes everything from fanfic to romance novels seem pale by comparison. And which happens to be the most read books in Norway, next to the Bible. Lol!

Jesus. 47 volumes???? Is there an ice person who doesn't get a book? I must admit that I am strangely fascinated by these and would buy them if they had vikings.

(And I am glad the Norwegians are happily keeping the Viking romance novel genre afloat.)

That's a hella lot of ice people! And I wish I had a forebear as interestingly named as Tengel the Evil. *g*
