Award-winning author Melissa Mayhue returns to the Highlands, where a beautiful warrior intent on avenging her father’s murder joins forces with the captivating Norseman who saved her life. . . .
Descendant of the ancient Pictish royal line, Bridget MacCulloch fears nothing, so when brash Halldor O’Donar rebuffs her offer to help defeat the foe that killed her father, she refuses to surrender her quest. But Bridget’s need for vengeance is equaled only by her growing attraction to Halldor.
Descendant of the Norse god Thor, Halldor must find the missing Sword of the Ancients, for only with this weapon can he overcome the loathsome monster that has entered the Mortal world determined to destroy it. Though he’s forbidden Bridget from accompanying him on his mission, he soon discovers the stubborn—yet sinfully irresistible—warrior princess heeds no one but herself.
Now they must learn to trust each other if they’re to defeat their enemies . . . or risk everything as they surrender to a desire with the power to conquer all.
