Blurb: As a berserkr warrior, protecting others came naturally to Ulfr. After watching his family get cut down before his eyes, Ulfr vowed revenge. Decades later, he is still looking for the jarl that slaughtered his family. When he discovers a sexy redhead being held prisoner by the very man he seeks, Ulfr has to decide between vengeance and protecting his mate.
Sold into slavery by his brother, Eitri despairs that he will ever be free. When rescue comes in the form of the biggest warrior Eitri has ever seen, his fascination with Ulfr quickly outweighs his fear of the powerful berserkr.
There are forces at work that threaten to take away all they have found in each other’s arms. A brother bent on seeing Eitri a slave, a mischievous god out to cause trouble, and a murderous jarl willing to kill anyone in his path to immortality are just a few of the obstacles Ulfr and Eitri need to overcome if they want to protect their own.

Review: This is the second book in the Viking Lore series and continues where the first left off. I loved the many characters throughout this story. The Norse were fierce and superstitious. The Gods were another set I loved as they portrayed several and interacted off and on with the characters. The whole story was very intriguing as it combined many different things.
Ulfr and what happened to him as a child broke my heart. I could not believe a Jarl could be so cruel. Ulfr and the others stood by their new leader with loyalty and trust when things went south for the group and protected them with a fierceness that was awe inspiring.
Eitri, I felt sorry for what he had been through and the circumstances surrounding why.
It infuriated me as to who had put Eitri in that situation to begin with. I loved the different species and creatures that seem to be introduced into each book. It adds mystery and suspense to a story that keeps the reader engaged as the story progresses.
The passion is hot and steamy and the battles fierce and deadly.
I highly recommend this book and can’t wait to read the next book in this fantastic series.
