At first, Brittany Callaghan thinks she’s dreaming. Afer all, she’s not used to seeing blond, nearly seven-feet-tall Nordic gods in her tiny California town. But when the spectacular-looking Viking turns up on her doorstep, Brittany knows her dream man is very real.
Though a stunning, statuesque beauty herself, intelligent and independent Brittany has struggled hard to cam respect in a man’s world. So she is somewhat taken aback when her visitor – whose name is Dalden – informs her that he is, in fact, a barbarian warrior. But Dalden is a long way from home and needs her help – and is willing to pay for it – so if he fancies himself a savage, that’s fine with her. Besides, he’s had Brittany’s blood running red-hot since the first time she saw him, and warrior or no, she’d like to get to know this gorgeous giant a lot better!
But the truth is a very rude awakening for the curvaceous West Coast lady. For Dalden is exactly what he claims to be. Where he comes from, brute strength is the law, men are all-powerful, and their women always obey. As bold and brash as she is beautiful, Brittany isn’t going to be subservient to any man, even one who is everything she ever wanted in a lover, and whose very touch sets her senses afire. If she and her Norse god are ever going to get serious, something is definitely going to have to give.
Still, Dalden is a warrior to the depths of his soul – proud, powerful, and brave – a man who will fight fearlessly and relentlessly for what he wants. And now what he wants most of all is Brittany…
