Rough and Ready
Torolf "Max" Magnusson is a Navy SEAL. He learns that the barbarian from his childhood destroys for years after that, even declaring himself king. Steinolf killed hundreds of men, raped and killed women and children. His rule and destruction lasted long after Torolf's family had left and time traveled to the present. Now he has to figure how to return to around the year 1000 to his childhood home in Old Norseland to stop Steinolf.
Some of his SEAL buddies from his unit insist on joining him on his trip to the present day Norway. When all five of them time travel back to Max's original homeland, the other four are sure it's a reenactment. But Max knows the truth. He has further proof when he meets his cousin, Hilda. She has escaped from Steinolf's terror and has started a women's sanctuary at some old, isolated family property.
Hmmm, five hot and randy Navy SEALs in a sanctuary of only women - women who want to have babies. That will lead to some escapades, of course. Yet the men are there to take down a terrorist as bad as anyone they know in the 21st century. They start training the women to fight. Max also goes out to find his cousins and get more help.
Hilda does not want the men in her Sanctuary. She does, however, want Steinolf dead. She knows Max from when they were children and trusts him. She is reluctant to go along with him, but does. Now she finds herself putting off him and his "bedplay" as well. That will not catch Steinolf.
Sandra Hill has a series for her time-traveling Old Norsemen (very different from the Norwegians of today). She has a lot of fun with Max and his Navy SEALs. Any of them would be the perfect man for a hot, spicy romance novel. Hilda is also a Norse beauty although she compares herself to her times' standards and doesn't match up. She matches up to Max's idea of beauty, though.
Rough and Ready is a modern fantasy romance - both in time travel concept and in the romance itself. Hill keeps the action going. The reader has to decide how (and when) Max and Hilda will share their future.
