Vengeance Hammer, Viking Vengeance Book Three, tentative blurb:

Vengeance would be his. All Dráddør has to do is kill Arnfinn, the Earl of Caithness, wed and bed the man’s first-born daughter, Lady Xara, and he fulfills the oath made to his dying father. Revenge.

But fate cheats Dráddør.

He arrives at Caithness to find Arnfinn dead. Poisoned by his own wife.

When he discovers Lady Xára cannot speak, Dráddør marries her anyway to claim the lands and title knowing full well that King Kenneth could not fault him if he later casts Xára aside.

Desperate to protect her sister, Evie, and the woman all think of as her mother, Lady Jennie, Xára willingly weds the Viking, Dráddørr. She must win Dráddør to her side before he discovers the secret that will destroy them all.

In the following scene, the king’s law sayer demands Dráddør publicly consummate his vows with Lady Xára.

Here are my 8 sentences:

Your skin is soft,” he whispered, and trailed kisses over the plane of her cheekbone, “and you taste like nectar.”

Nectar, nay Valhalla, the paradisiacal reward all warriors sought. He could not get enough, dipped into the moist recesses, licked along the smooth evenness of her small teeth, tangled their tongues together, and suckled until she was tempted into play. She grew bolder and imitated his actions.

When he eased his hand under the cover and cupped her breast, Xára held still. He nipped the tip of her tongue and sipped at her lower lip.

She grasped his shoulder, squirmed closer, and thrust into his mouth.

Dráddør traced the circumference of her sweet titty, set his thumb to the nipple, and rolled her flesh gently.

Hope you enjoyed! Vengeance Hammer releases on May 17, 2013
