I'd love some recommendations for gay historical romances involving Vikings--assuming they even exist; I haven't been able to find any on my own. The closest thing I've found to what I'm searching for is A Companion to Wolves by Sarah Monette and Elizabeth Bear, which really isn't close at all. Basically, I want the profic versions of [archiveofourown.org profile] Helenish's Patience, a Steady Hand. Any recs?

This one's harder than I realized, but I believe Kirby Crow has some that might fit. She did one short story awhile back called, hrm, The Prisoner (not really sure), which is clearly about Viking raids, though it may be out of print by now. She also has a trilogy that's fantasy, but heavily influenced by Norse elements (Scarlet and the White Wolf, Mariner's Luck, Land of Night). It's far more of a fantasy with some romantic elements, and the story takes its time with the romance.

Rosemary Sutcliff wrote two books set among Vikings, Blood Feud and Sword Song. They aren't romances, nor gay, and I haven't read them yet, but given that they're Rosemary Sutcliff, they are almost certainly satisfyingly slashy. (I have no idea if that helps.)

Also, I know there's some recentish Arthurian stuff that includes both invading Norsemen and gayness, although possibly not at the same time...

Blood Feud is slashy; Sword Song isn't very, IMO.

You would think these would exist! I was looking for them recently, but couldn't find anything other than a couple time-travel things with vampires or college students (the latter ludicrously badly written).
