Contessa Dahl has spent most of her life in a haze. As a rudderless orphan, most of her decisions involved her fists and feet and choosing to either fight or run. At twenty-eight, she’s chosen to clean up her act, and just in time.
She’s destined to be a special kind of leader.
Born into a reclusive group of Viking descendants in rural New Mexico, Tess was meant to become a link for them all—their queen and conduit. Her childhood abduction and the death of her parents meant her people, the Afótama, have had a hole in their web for too long. Now that she’s back at home, it’s Tess’s job to mend it.
But she can’t do it alone.
She needs a perfect mate to fill in her psychic gaps, and two men claim to be fated for the job. Harvey Lang, her childhood champion, and the group outsider Oliver Gilisson would fight to the death to win her. However, Fate has another monkey wrench thrown into the works for the reluctant new queen: to gain full control of her considerable power, she must find a way to keep them both.
