Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

<p>Romantic fiction has a first name: Johanna! For years, the remarkable Johanna Lindsey has created love stories that rank among the most satisfying ever written. Her ability to seamlessly blend charm and wit with steamy passion and tender romance -- while casting uniquely memorable characters into bold original plots -- is unrivaled. And now, with thirty-seven national bestsellers already to her credit, Lindsey has brought the magic back in a wonderful new novel that proves once again how delightfully well she knows the intricate workings of the human heart.</p> <p>At first, Brittany Callaghan thinks she's dreaming. Afer all, she's not used to seeing blond, nearly seven-feet-tall Nordic gods in her tiny California town. But when the spectacular-looking Viking turns up on her doorstep, Brittany knows her dream man is very real.</p> <p>Though a stunning, statuesque beauty herself, intelligent and independent Brittany has struggled hard to cam respect in a man's world. So she is somewhat taken aback when her visitor -- whose name is Dalden -- informs her that he is, in fact, a barbarian warrior. But Dalden is a long way from home and needs her help--and is willing to pay for it -- so if he fancies himself a savage, that's fine with her. Besides, he's had Brittany's blood running red-hot since the first time she saw him, and warrior or no, she'd like to get to know this gorgeous giant a lot better!</p> <p>But the truth is a very rude awakening for the curvaceous West Coast lady. For Dalden is exactly what he claims to be. Where he comes from, brute strength is the law, men are all-powerful, and their women always obey. As bold and brash as she is beautiful, Brittany isn't going to be subservient to any man, even one who is everything she ever wanted in a lover, and whose very touch sets her senses afire. If she and her Norse god are ever going to get serious, something is definitely going to have to give.</p> <p>Still, Dalden is a warrior to the depths of his soulproud, powerful, and brave -- a man who will fight fearlessly and relentlessly for what he wants. And now what he wants most of all is Brittany....</p> <p>A deliciously enchanting and brilliantly imaginative addition to the Lindsey library, Heart of a Warrior is richly overflowing with the humor, surprise, sensuality, emotion -- and, of course, unparalleled love -- that have become the author's trademarks. When it comes to fictional affairs of the heart, the extraordinary Johanna Lindsey is truly one of a kind.</p>

Library Journal Review

Brittany Callaghan is very tall and works in construction (saving to build her own house with her own labor), and she attributes these facts to her inability to find a man who will accept her stature and her job. Disappointed repeatedly, she can hardly believe it when a gorgeous 7'-tall man shows up at the local mall. She comes to his aid (he's obviously foreign) and dares to dream of their future together. Until she discovers that he is an alien, and they are on his ship headed to his planet though she believes that this is all a government-funded hoax. But how long can she suspend disbelief when her heart tells her that Dalden is her soul mate? Romance fans will recognize this scheme with an sf setting, as Brittany struggles against her feelings 'til the last although her ability to continue to deny that she is in space and then on another planet is more device than plot. Laural Merlington's narration is lively and engaging, though her voice for Dalden is a bit too robotic at times. As is usual with this producer, voices coming over a speaker or phone (and the former is the case with the computer with which Dalden is in almost constant communication) are given a slight echo chamber effect.
