|Can a mere Viking break the curse of a sea god?Cursed by the sea-god Ægir to be burned at the stake, Lady Nyssa seeks the one man who can save her–the warrior who bears the mark of the Saracen. When she finds a Viking warrior wounded and senseless on a beach, she knows he is her savior. But Ægir’s wrath extends to others in her life as well. He’s killed her father and stepmother, turned her stepbrother into a mountain lion, and imprisoned her people. And worse, he’s cursed any man who lays with her to have his manparts wither and die.
Konáll has traded coin a-plenty to gain a wife with lands, the daughter of the King of Moray. He expects a refined, comely, trainable damsel, not a doomed warrior princess with the strength of a giantess who cannot bear the touch of a man. But once he learns more about this woman who speaks to talking mountain cats and hides as a peasant among the rabble, he cannot deny his feelings. There’s more than one way to breech a maidenhead, and if teaching her the ways of a woman’s pleasure with a carved ivory dildo is what it takes to make her his, then he’s more than happy to challenge the wrath of a god…
Genre & Heat: Erotic Historical Viking
Long and Short Reviews: What an awesome book ! I loved this story and can’t wait for Draddor to find his true love in the next book. After reading the first book, Malice Striker, I couldn’t help contemplating what kind of wondrous journey Ms. Carlo would take the readers on in the next book. Well, I just want to unequivocally state that she did not disappoint with Konall’s story. It was wonderfully romantic as well as overflowing with action and suspense. And as expected, the heat level was hot enough to scorch your panties off.
Midnight Attic Reader: This is a wonderful story that brings you even further into Norse mythology than the first story in this series and with a slight BDSM edge to it. The characters, as always, were very engaging. I hope we see more of Nyssa's brother, Mus/Ciarran, in the third book, or at least learn what happens to him. I look forward to reading the next book in this series, Vengeance Hammer, about Konáll's brother, Dráddør! Awesome series!
