Miriam Minger Book List


Interview with Miriam Minger
Have you traveled to do research for your books?
Most of the books I’ve written so far are historical romance, so I haven’t traveled specifically for any of the stories—except in my mind and during my research! I did travel to Norway with my grandmother when I was seventeen, though, and fell in love with that amazingly beautiful country. We visited lots of relatives and saw enough fjords, waterfalls, and preserved Viking ships to inspire me for years to come! In honor of that unforgettable trip, two of my historical romances are Viking stories—Twin Passions and The Pagan’s Prize. If you love Viking romance, don’t miss them!

Do you enjoy reading your own stories?
I’ve been re-reading my books to prepare them for print publication with Amazon Createspace, and it’s been a wonderful experience. I just finished The O’Byrne Brides series, Wild Angel and Wild Roses, set in medieval Ireland, and I so fell in love again with my two heroes, Ronan “Black” O’Byrne in Wild Angel and Lord Duncan FitzWilliam in Wild Roses. I hope you do, too.

Do you laugh and cry while writing your books?
Yes, I do, which is an amazing experience when what I’m writing is so vivid to me that it leaps off the page and into my heart, making me laugh and cry. Wow, there is nothing like it. The characters come alive and I’m so rooting for their happiness in spite of difficulties they face on the sometimes rocky path to love and happiness. And if I find myself laughing or crying, then I believe my readers will be so engaged by the story unfolding in front of them that they find themselves laughing and crying, too.

What is your go-to snack?
Chocolate, of course! What goes better with romance?

What are you writing now?
I’ve started a series in a new genre for me—erotic romance. My historical romances are all very sensual so I’m simply taking the stories a couple heat levels higher. I’m also planning a contemporary romance series and a paranormal romance series, so it’s going to be a busy year!

 Twin Passions
Twin Passions by Miriam Minger
Godric, the Earl of Cheshire and his wife, Lady Bronwen have twin daughters. Anora is always the proper English lady while Gwendolyn enjoys wearing her trousers and going on the hunts with her father. More like a son. Life was about to change for the young ladies as Anora was about to marry so they agreed to spend one more morning together before the marriage. A morning that turns out quite differently for them. The morning they go from English ladies to Viking slaves.

Hakon was the second son and had left his home to go into trading, and he did quite well at it. When he gets a message that his brother is ill, and he must return to Norge, he goes. When it's discovered that he was disobeyed and two of the men have taken captives while they were stopped in England, he's outraged but cannot return them, and one look at the glorious Anora and he don't want to ever let her go. Her 'brother' Garric is quite the spirited young man and much too pretty for a boy. What he doesn’t know is that Garric is not a young man and that Anora’s twin will stop at nothing to protect her sister and get them home so that she can be reunited with her betrothed.

This was definitely a book that I couldn’t put down until the last page. Full of adventure and some nasty villains who just wouldn’t die. A sister’s love so strong that she would put herself in danger or give completely of herself to protect the other. And of course full of Vikings and their unique ways and lifestyle.

A Warrior’s Passion
With the sheer strength of his muscular body, Crusader Guy de Warenne overpowered his captors and fled the hell-hole of the Syrian prison. Yet he couldn’t leave Damascus without rescuing the lovely violet-eyed “slave girl” who had saved his life by tenderly caring for his battle wounds. Never did he imagine that his damsel in distress would become a hot-blooded temptress who would torment his days and nights with every move of her innocent young form.

She is Leila, a raven-haired English beauty kidnapped in infancy, schooled in medicine by the wealthy physician who adopted her…and trained in the sensual delights of the harem. To Leila, the Crusader is a savage barbarian who ravaged her adopted homeland and ruthlessly carried her away to serve his own purposes. Yet, even in her fury, she is drawn to this man of unexpected tenderness and awakened to a raw, sensual power that will carry them both on a tumultuous journey into adventure, danger, and love.
The Pagan's Prize
A Clash of Wills and a Triumph of Desire

He had been sent as a spy to pave the way for her people’s surrender. But his furious hunger for her heated touch—and her aching need for his burning caress—led to a fiery passion that was a greater prize than any kingdom.

Captain Garrett Marshall was entrusted with the capture of the mysterious brigand called “Black Jack.” But the sensuous, azure-eyed beauty hidden beneath the bandit’s manly garb tested Garrett’s loyalty to his King. Inflamed by a desire he could not ignore, the handsome officer would wed his bewitching enemy to save her from the gallows. But first he’d have to quell her hatred…and conquer her heart.

Kassandra whirled to face the arrogant military man she'd hoped never to see again, remembering all too clearly his kisses that lingered like molten honey on her lips. To admit it was her innocence he'd stolen in a moment of blazing passion would ruin her father's diplomatic career and forever destroy her reputation!

Stefan nearly shouted in triumph. He'd searched throughout Vienna for the beguiling tavern wench who had aroused him past endurance, and here she stood like a shimmering goddess. He must have her, he would have her--if only to safeguard her honor by making her his wife!
 Defiant Impostor
Beloved Deceiver

Once, the exquisite impostor would have welcomed the attentions of handsome Adam Thornton. But now, consorting with a “hired hand” is unthinkable—though the raw, sensual power of the rugged plantation manager leaves Susanna breathless. Driven by a long-held desire for vengeance, Adam is ruthlessly determined to win both Briarwood and its beautiful new mistress—only to be undone by a soul inflamed with passion…and a heart ennobled by love.
