Bael Bloodborn will go down in history as the lone Viking berserker who held Stamford Bridge against the Saxons, killing hundreds with his own ax. Mortally wounded, he’s carried downriver to a witch who has the power to heal not just his body, but awaken wicked desires he’d thought long dead. First, he’ll have to forgive her for binding her to him against his will with a kiss that would not only change the course of their destiny, but that of the entire world.
She needs his protection…
All Druid Princess, Morgana de Moray, knows is the angry Nordic berserker she pulled from the river is the only man who can free her from Saxon captivity and get her back to the Highlands. A dark evil threatens her home, and she must gain back Bael’s broken trust if she is to make it in time. Morgana is left with no choice but to strike a deadly bargain with the dangerous warrior, and risk all to unleash the beast from within the man without losing her heart, or her life.
Join the de Moray Druids as they each find a love that will be worth defying the forces of evil and risking their souls to save our world.
Morgana needs the most lethal man on the planet.
I give this book 5 stars!
Kerrigan Byrne has delivered a story that has kept me sitting on the edge of my seat, still wanting more. I could not put this book down long. I mean I didn’t even want to go to the bathroom! I was so engrossed in this; I read it so quickly that I was actually depressed when it was over. Kerrigan has some of the best character development I have ever seen.
By the time the book is ending, you know everything you need to know about a character. She makes sure that they are well-rounded, full of real emotional things that happen to we humans every day in real world. This read is short, but it has everything you’d want in a book! Hot and steamy romance, plenty of drama, and very real sex scenes! You can read this as a stand alone novel.
So Morgana is a strong heroine and Druid princess that is determined to save her family and their land. She feels the berserker is her only chance. Bael, the Berserker, does not want anything to do with life anymore and he’s given up.
The things that are very important to a berserker are acceptance, love, and not being used. He has suffered tremendously by the people in his world, and he’s fed up with everything. He runs into Morgana, who is not to be told no. She needs his help and she will not stop until she gets what she wants.
So the story starts with Bael attempting to shut down. His berserker side is being enthralled by Morgana and wanting to help her. I really love how the berserker bonded with Morgana so quickly, and little did Bael know, but the beast was pushing him to keep going. There are good things coming for him, he just has to be patient.
Will Bael finally come undone and accept the love that has been so freely given? Will he listen to his beast and make the right decision? I guess you all shall see.
