'Whenever I need a break from the Twenty-First Century, I read one of Christina Courtenay's novels.

She transports me effortlessly to a different time, where I feel I'm experiencing life in Viking settlements' SUE MOORCROFT'I've been looking forward to this book . . . and it far exceeded my hopes and expectations. Romantic, fascinating and gripping, it's one of my favourites of the series' NICOLA CORNICKBrimming with romance, adventure and vivid historical detail, Christina Courtenay does for the Vikings what Diana Gabaldon's Outlander and Clanlans does for Scottish history.

The long-awaited story of Ivar Thoresson, foster brother of Linnea and Madison Berger, is told in Promises of the Runes - available now!....................................... He travelled through time to capture her heart. Ivar Thoresson is desperate for adventure. As an archaeologist specialising in Viking times, he wants nothing more than to travel back to the ninth century as his loved ones have done, to learn everything he can about the era which fascinates him. And whilst his adopted family have always made him feel loved, the chance to meet a true ancestor, the warrior Thorald, is a temptation he cannot resist. But while Ivar is preparing to go, he uncovers an amulet which shows him a vision of an arresting woman with red-gold hair.

Clearly in distress, she is pleading for help. Convinced of the power of the charm and its message, Ivar's journey takes on a new purpose.

He steps back in time determined to follow his destiny - and find the woman who has called to his heart. .......................................
