BOOKS BY FRANKIE ROBERTSON
THE VINLANDERS SAGA SERIES
A great tale of adventure and romance, beautifully imagined and deeply engaging from beginning to end!
— Diana Gabaldon, bestselling author of Outlander.
A WORLD OF MAGIC, LOVE, AND BETRAYAL
Celia Montrose has been trained to deal with any emergency–except being thrust into another world. Crisis management training hasn’t prepared her for meeting the Viking descendants of the lost Vinland colony, or coping with kidnapping, murder, and magic.
Lord Dahleven is preparing for war when he rescues a strange and beautiful woman in the drylands. Though he fears Celia may be Fey-marked, Dahleven can’t resist the powerful attraction he feels for her. But is Celia in league with the enemy, or will she provide the key to saving his people?
Alone and off-balance, Celia finds herself falling for Lord Dahleven. But dangerous forces are at work, and one of them is offering Celia a way home–for a price.
As the second son of the Kon of Nuvinland, and a priest of Baldur, Lord Ragni understands the demands of politics. He’s not surprised when his father arranges a marriage for him to the daughter of another Jarl. Unfortunately, Ragni has just fallen hard for Saeun.
Saeun never expected to fall in love with Lord Ragni, but what began as a casual dalliance with a ladies’ man blossomed into a deep passion. But her hopes for the future are dashed when her tools of forbidden magic are discovered.
Confronted with Saeun’s crime, Ragni faces an agonizing choice: enforce the law he’s sworn to uphold, or save the woman he loves.
And while the lovers’ hearts are breaking, a dark and ancient threat to all of Nuvinland is gaining strength.
Son of an Oathbreaker, Aren is desperate to restore his family’s honor, and leaps at the chance Lord Fender offers. His task seems simple enough for a Tracker: bring in a young woman accused of a vile crime. Simple, until his duty to the Jarl conflicts with a debt he owes to the Elves.
Fey-marked and friendless, Annikke flees the wrath of a vengeful lord. When Aren intercepts her, Annikke must choose: trust a stranger with warm brown eyes who promises justice, or protect her daughter—and remain a fugitive forever.
Grabs you from the start with excellent pacing, fascinating characters and culture, and a satisfying romance. I want more!

As I’ve posted before, I’ve been reading a lot of Indie fiction – yet maybe you’ve been wondering why there aren’t many reviews posted on my site…well, I’m not recommending anything that I’m not absolutely in love with – and I love, love, love Frankie Robertson’s book Dangerous Talents. The story unfolds quickly with an incident that changes Celia’s (our heroine’s) life. From the get-go, the story unwinds with believable, interesting characters that you will both recognize and find strangely unfamiliar. Woven throughout this tale is Norse Mythology and Legend (I’m not telling you how, you’ll have to read it to find out) and it’s masterfully done with well written dialogue and artfully crafted scenes that let you glimpse the inner lives of the characters. The motives are clear, the scenes fluid, and all of the loose ends are neatly tied up in nice little packages with pretty ribbons that leave you completely satisfied and gratified. I highly recommend this book for a wide variety of reasons – memorable characters, a strong plot, nice blend of myths/legends and contemporary characters and (naturally) a liberal dose of magic and a villain that keeps you on the edge. LOVED it – and will definitely read the next book Forbidden Talents – as soon as I read the other books that are on my kindle!

–Melanie Rawn, best-selling author of Diviner, and Spellbinder
4 of 5 stars
I’ve always loved books that deal with angels, demons and good vs. evil. This book seemed to promise all that and more from its description and I have to say it didn’t disappoint.

From Siren Book Reviews:
(Siren’s Best Book Stone) by Nikki
“From the get-go, Veiled Mirror grabbed my attention. With plenty of suspense, and a small touch of paranormal, this is one of the best romantic suspense books I’ve read in a long time. There’s deceit, murder, lies…I was left guessing the whole way through. I worried for Beth, cried for her family that died, and was at the edge of my seat, hanging on to every word because I never knew what to expect next.
Frankie Robertson is a new-to-me author, and from my journey with this book, I will be keeping an eye out for more. The characters are so well created, the tension is high and it never wavers. I stayed up late into the night-hours to finish this book. I read it in one sitting, not wanting to miss a thing, yet I didn’t want it to end either.
Kudos to you, Frankie Robertson. You’ve created an amazing suspenseful story. Readers, if you’re a romantic suspense fan, add this book to your list right away.”
(4 hearts) by Stacey :
“Veiled Mirror was a surprisingly wonderful story. The blurb interested me, but it didn’t even hint at how well the story would capture the reader’s attention. Frankie Robertson does a fantastic job of getting the readers attention early and not letting go until the end. She gives us just enough detail to keep us going but not so much that you just skim through parts.
Veiled Mirror is a story about family and love. The mayhem that accompanies it is a definite bonus. I would recommend Veiled Mirror if you like romantic suspense stories with a few plot twists and a friendly ghost to help things along.”
