The Warrior's Viking Bride - Michelle St...
.I can't keep reading this, it's winding me up something rotten. Her borrowed dress is torn, she's riding on horseback and the "hero" is trying to convince her that dresses are better than her warrior clothes for their journey. He's also leaning towards gaslighting her into believing that everything she believes is wrong. He has no value for her opinions or thoughts. The latest was him trying to convince her of the advantage of dresses for easy sex access and I just can't keep reading this.
Any agency she has and any backbone she might have developed is being eroded ready for the "hero" to rescue her from her father rather than her being the strong person she is and choosing her own path rather than the men dictating to her. This woman was a battle leader.
I deserve better, she deserves better, my brain doesn't need this in it.
P.S. I've ridden a pony on a modern european saddle, with saddle blankets in shorts, ONCE. Bad idea, that was some epic chaffing. Trousers, thick trousers are the way to go with horsehair.
