    I think most of the discussion here though has revolved around the hope that the romance elements of the story will not play out like you are winning some arm candy for your character though. I think...

    At the risk of veering off the main topic, I don't agree. While women in Viking society had it better than many of their contemporaries, the bar was not set high. Vikings used to expose infants, and...
