My reviews of romance novel, Sunset Fire, follows.
CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, AND DEVELOPMENT:
Sunset Fire is an epic romance between the pagan Viking warrior chieftain and the Irish Christian daughter of a king. With vivid descriptions, Vincent details their journey across land and sea. I could smell the salt in the air and feel the tension between Dægan and Mara. I have never read a book which had as much sexual tension between the characters without using sex or descriptive language. The emotion is intense and deep as the romance blooms, reflecting Vincent’s talent for prose. It is nice to see an author who can relay to the reader the deep emotions of love without resorting to explicit or graphic language. It’s refreshing to read the deep emotion without all the crude language.
With well-developed characters, sweet romance, smooth and steady pacing, and an intriguing story-line, Vincent grabs the reader immediately; I could not read this book fast enough. Seen from the prospective of the Viking Chieftain Dægan, the Vikings are seen as ordinary people with responsibilities, families, friends, and beliefs. I must also tell the reader to have the Kleenex ready, as I cried like a baby at one point in the story.
Finally, in concluding my review of Sunset Fire, I found an intense emotional story-line with clean clear writing. I applaud Vincent talent. I would not hesitate to buy this book for myself or a friend.
