Guys, there is a book that i've been trying to find, ask ko naman ang tulong nyo.

The book is Libertine's Destiny by P. Ancier. published in 1967. I already asked the help of I-Carly pero wala syang mahanap. I just learned today that the book was banned pala because it was based on true story.

If there is any who has a copy, kahit xerox copy lang nung book OK na din. I am not very sure, pero baka available sya sa library ng DLSU, Cavite. If anyone here studies there, baka pwedeng ipa-xerox for me. The story is really good, I hope you guys can read it too.

Yung story kasi was set after ng WWII, yung hati pa ang Russia at under occupational troop yung half at yung half eh under pa ng Nazi. If the story is really true to life, then it is the story of a princess and na mentioned how her parents died and how the Nazi regime used her wealth. But it is really a romance novel, a pauper who fell in love with an American army but not love at first sight ha. Twist kasi agad nung magkakilala sila.

kafatid... back read mode ka dito sa reviews... tsaka doon sa connie mason thread... nakapost yan dito at doon, pati mga sizzling hott reviews... LOL

post ko mamaya ang viking!

kala ko pinakamatindi na yung sheik at pirate prince... may viking pa pala!!! Shocked ,ukhang feel na feel kong maging babaeng erotic pag nababasa ko yan...

the thing is... it's not just sex alone... yung paraan ng pagsusulat ni mason, parang naiilagay mo ang sarili mo sa mga characters niya... and for that you made yourself feel like you're the most sexiest and beautiful like those characters in this stories...

Viking!
(1998)
A novel by Connie Mason


Synopsis and summary:

Thorne the Relentless spots Fiona the Learned in a pool naked on the Isle of Man after he feels a compulsion to go to the island. Immediately he is enchanted and has to have her. He is scared off but returns a year later after suffering a whole year dreaming about her and obsessing about her until he is sure he is bewitched. He is sent to kill the 'witch' on the Isle of Man. He soon finds he can't kill her, he'd rather stop breathing for he feels completely under her siren spell and must have her.

Fiona is no witch, she is a healer. Since she was small, her friend and teacher Brann, has told her she will be captured by her future soulmate, a Viking, on a raid. She is appalled and aghast. She isn't sure Brann is correct, but when Thorne shows up and takes her to his homeland. She soons realizes she is indeed his soulmate and can't understand how Thorne will accept this since he firmly believes she is a witch and has cast a spell on him.

Spoilers and review:

At first, i thought I wouldn't be interested in Viking theme, except when I watch the movie pathfinder...

Well according to King Arthur's history, they were vicious, savage, notorious and mean! They not just plunder and steal, but they raped women... (it's their way of marking the territory actually). They want the women to carry their blood.

On this book, Thorne was strolling at the beach called Isle of Man (that's in Ireland by the way)... as usual, wala sila sa mood mang harass ng territory o magnakaw, untill he was called by the siren's voice...

Wala namang voice actually, it's only him could heear it. I think Brann (the wizzard of that Island) did that so Fiona and him would meet. according to Brann's prophecy, the Isle of Man will be ruled by Fiona and her future soulmate; the Viking warrior'ss sons.

Fiona's Brann's apprentice.

He saw her naked on the pool. He came to her and about to rape her, but she ran away.

But he didn't bother to follow her... naisip niya, uwi na lang ako sa bayan namin kung saan maraming chica babes na naghihintay for me...

Thorne's a royalty back home. he's the son of the King. he's got a mayhem of women back home. And a fiancée waiting for him too... (arrange marriage of Clans) But the thing is, he couldn't get a hard on with those babes waiting for him... Shocked

so he realized that maybe that chick on the pool cast him a spell. For almost a year, she haunted him on his sleep, he couldn't get her off his mind... and couldn't "raise a flag" each time he attempted to bed another women.

Well this is how he think though:

I am Thorne the Relentless! No one would take over my mind, nobody would eer dare to control my feelings except ME!

(ain't that cocky?! Rolling Eyes )

anyway... his father told him: Just go back to the island and bring the woman's head on me! that way you'll be free of her witch spells!

So mega sugod naman pabalik si papa thorne... they ransack and plunder the village... his men raped the women... He got the head villager... (it happens to be Fionna's father) as the bait or hostage so Fionna will show up...

Then as usual, when he saw her running to aid her father. He turned mushy inside, like a his heart was like a wild beast inside his chest... na akala niya maic spell na naman... Neutral

he was ready to kill her. he's about to swing his swrod to her neck but he felt a pain to his chest... unbearable pain... blaming it to the spell again...

I mean... don't u get it dude!? Obviously it was love at first sight! But yo're stubborn as a mule to realize it! Thinking that she's a witch putting a spell on you!?

Then he changed his mind of killing her. He kept her as a slave instead... When he tried to molest her and harassed her 'give me your virginity! I will have you now!'

Oh well... this girl played along with the witch stuff he accused of her... so she said:

"marry me before you claim my body..."

"Are you mad? Why would I marry you!? You're my slave. I can bed you whenever I please!"

"If you bed me against my wishes, I'll put your family under my spell too!"
Shocked Shocked Shocked



May scene dito sa book na literally I squeal with frustration... Dude, you're in love with the girl! Get it!?

So he marry her to save his family under her spell… Pooh!!! Lame excuse! You want her hot and willing that’s why you give her wishes!

Sex? well, hindi siya papahuli sa Pirate Prince at Sheik... I lost count of how many times they made love with sexy flirty verbal foreplays.

I wanna scream on the tug of war phase of their lovestory… yung phase na…

“he hate me… he just wants my body!”

“She puts me on spell that’s why I couldn’t think straight…”

Minsan ang sarap nilang pag untugin!

The thing about Mason? You can always put your self in the heroine’s shoe… Hindi kasi sila complicated pakisamahan at makisama… It’s the people around them most of the times misunderstood stuff about the heroine that’s why they had troubles…

Gustong-Gusto ko yung part dito na galit na galit si Fionna kay Thorne… She asked him to go away and leave her in peace. But Thorne insisted:

“I want to stay with you… you’re my wife!
“I am no longer your wife! Go away!”
“I won’t go anywhere no matter what you say! I will make you love me like the way I love you!

Plot: 4 stars
Sex: Is there any higher than 5 stars?
Story overall: 4 and a half stars Wink






this is how I look Thorne inside my mind...This is how I pictre out when he was looking for Fionna to kill her.

Images from Pathfinder movie...

ang ganda ng story ah...

sana mabasa ko rin iyan balang araw...

matagal na akong facinated sa mga vikings... talagang matitigas ang ulo ng mga iyan...

but deep inside... well they are good... in many ways Wink hehehe

si sandra hill ang daming viking story... trip ko iyong tigas-tigasan ng ulo. na inakala ng marami ay because they are really bad people. they are not... that's only the way they are because that's the way they are trained to be... most of them are warriors kaya ganoon...

hayz! masarap ding mahalin ng mga viking... the right viking :p
