Is he a threat to the power given to her by the gods - or a threat to her heart?Having spent almost all her life under the careful tutelage of the Seeress who has raised and trained her, Katrin anticipates her day of freedom, when she becomes a full Seeress in her own right. Using her visions and messages from the gods, she looks forward to building her own retinue and bringing prosperity to many. Yet, as that day grows closer, doubts about her mistress arise and spur questions that demand answers.Compounding her worries are the dreams where she is haunted by a virile warrior, one who inspires longing and desire. Katrin doesn't understand the meaning of these dreams, since the conditions for her to retain her powers require her to remain pure and innocent of men. When she comes face to face with her dream warrior, she is overcome by lust-inspiring visions.Since being publicly betrayed, Hradi has despaired of ever finding a woman to trust. He is suspicious of the arrival of the Volur, witches who bring blessings from the gods. Because the young maiden faints at the sight of him, he believes she fears him, even as he is drawn to her innocence. Worried Katrin's mistress intends harm, Hradi makes a deal that allows him time alone with the young witch, far from the watchful eye of her guardian, in the hopes of learning the truth of their intentions. Instead, he soon realizes the innocent Seeress understands him more than anyone else ever has and forces him to admit the doubts that have plagued him for years.Secrets threaten to destroy their fragile trust, and the hope they share for a possible future together. Will they discover the truth, before it's too late?Features A Kinky Twist on History! love scenes, including bondage and spanking!

In all the Ages of Man, there have been decent and honorable men. Jarl Brand Ketilsson is one such man. He is a leader who does not seek or covet wealth, but wishes only to maintain peace in his realm. Unfortunately, Ketilsson is forced to go to battle and shed blood in an effort to achieve his goal. But, he will fight-fight to the death to save his people and those aligned with him. Set against the historical backdrop of ninth-century Scandinavia, when Viking history was every bit as romantic as it was brutal, Forced Blood: The Norseman offers a multidimensional depiction of the Norsemen who survived the Viking Age in their own country. With its vivid attention to detail, Forced Blood: The Norseman is an epic tale of one man's strength and courage against those who would rob him of his land, his culture, and his life.
... enduring the Norseman's gaze was far more humiliating. 'There were no conditions to the gift, lady,' he said, his voice thundering so all could hear.

Sea Narratives: Cultural Responses to the Sea, 1600-Present explores the relationship between the sea and culture from the early modern period to the present. The collection uses the concept of the ‘sea narrative’ as a lens through which to consider the multiple ways in which the sea has shaped, challenged, and expanded modes of cultural representation to produce varied, contested and provocative chronicles of the sea across a variety of cultural forms within diverse socio-cultural moments. Sea Narratives provides a unique perspective on the relationship between the sea and cultural production: it reveals the sea to be more than simply a source of creative inspiration, instead showing how the sea has had a demonstrable effect on new modes and forms of narration across the cultural sphere, and in turn, how these forms have been essential in shaping socio-cultural understandings of the sea. The result is an incisive exploration of the sea’s force as a cultural presence.
