The orc warrior says I’m his… soulmate?
A long time ago, my father sold my sister to an orc. I haven’t heard from her since, but I am determined to find her and bring her home. During my first week on the road north, however, I cross paths with a massively tall Orc Guardian who claims I’m his… fated mate.
Magnus the Wolf says I’m coming with him, and he won’t take no for an answer.
Hm. Maybe getting kidnapped by a big, muscular orc who wants to marry me isn’t the worst thing that could happen. After he brings me back to his clanlands, I can find my sister and we can flee the Orc Realm together. No looking back.
But the first time Magnus kisses me, the whole world fades and I find myself yearning for his touch. I also find myself wondering if maybe, just maybe, escape isn’t the answer.
Lorna has been waiting for her mother to pass so she could escape her drunken father. As soon as her mother is buried she sneaks out in the middle of the night to go look for her sister, Hilda. Her father sold Hilda three years before to an Orc for drinking money. She is determined to find her and help her escape so they can be together. After a week on the road she is attacked by five highwaymen. She is sure she is going to die when they finish with her. But suddenly she is rescued by a huge Orc.
Magnus has been dreaming of his fated mate since he was a boy. He never dreams he would find her in the middle of the forest being attacked. He quickly dispatches the five men but Lorna has run off into the forest. He has no trouble finding her but convincing her to trust him and that she is his mate is not quite so easy!
Lorna is not so sure about being Magnus mate, but when she finds out he is heading home to the Orc Realm she agree’s to go with him so she can find her sister. The journey North is long and hard and fraught with danger, but Magnus does his best to protect her. As the journey lengthens Lorna is drawn closer and closer to Magnus. Can she really leave him when she finds her sister?
A great book and Magnus will steal your heart!
