Description

"Action-packed, sexy, and fun! Reminiscent of J.R. Ward—but with Vikings!"—Illona Andrews, New York Times bestselling author on Viking Warrior Rebel

A double 2016 RITA Finalist for Best First Book and Paranormal Romance!

When Loki's forces descend
Immortal Vikings are humanity's only protection against the dark

Under attack from Loki's minions, immortal warlord Leif is shocked to encounter a dark-haired beauty who fights like a warrior herself. Wounded and feverish, the Viking kisses her, inadvertently triggering an ancient Norse bond. But when Naya Brisbane breaks away and disappears before the bond is completed, Leif's warrior spirit goes berserk. If Leif doesn't find her fast, he's going to lose himself to permanent battle fury.

But Naya doesn't want to be found...and they're both running out of time.

        Bradley’s debut blends Norse mythology and evil government experiments into an unusual paranormal. When fugitive supersoldier Naya Brisbane rescues a big blond man from a were-wolverine attack, the last thing she expects is to be immersed in a society of immortal Vikings. Leif Skarsganger, the band’s king, has spent lifetimes fighting the minions of Loki in an effort to hold back Ragnaroek, the end of the world. Leif’s magical snake tattoo tells him that Naya is his destined queen, and his berserker spirit threatens to drive him insane if she walks away. But Naya sneers at “manipulated neurochemistry” and swears that nothing will keep her from leaving Leif in order to save her brother’s life. Though the dialogue is mundane at times, the immortal Viking premise is perfect for paranormal romance readers who are looking for something different. Agent: Sarah Younger, Nancy Yost Literary Agency.
