“Women should fight at my side as Shield-maidens, or warm my bed. What they should not do is shoe my horse, because that takes real skill.”
Isla Sinclair is celebrating becoming a blacksmith on the remote Scottish island she calls home when a mysterious stranger steps out of the misty night and sends her hormones racing. Isla and sex have been strangers for too long. She’s more accustomed to working hot metal than a hot man, and when this hard-muscled individual demands she ease his aching limbs with extra services, Isla’s not impressed. But…twenty-first century hospitality surely dictates she offer him a bed for the night.
Ragnar Rask, King of a Viking settlement in 800 A.D., has taken Viking wanderlust to new levels in his hunt for a suitable queen to fight at his side, bear his children and continue his line. Strong, resourceful Isla may be his chosen mate. But luring her back to his own times leads straight into danger. An evil priest’s magical powers have increased in Ragnar’s absence, threatening everything he holds dear.
Does a time-travelling Fire Witch possess powers to defeat a dangerous warlock and claim her rugged mate?
