Malice Striker

(The first book in the Viking Vengeance series)
A novel by

The award-winning first book of the Viking Vengeance Series

Can a mere mortal Viking tame the daughter of a goddess?

When Scotland's King Kenneth orders his death and kidnaps his sister, the Viking Brokk--the Malice Striker--plans his vengeance: he'll steal the king's bastard daughter from Sumbarten Abbey and use her to buy his sister's freedom. But his schemes go awry when his liege lord commands him to wed Skatha--and when he finds five women instead of one at the Abbey, none will claim the King as father.

When the Viking abducts Skatha and her women, she's bewildered. Why did Brokk seize her? Why does he want her for his wife? She weds him willingly enough when he threatens to kill her companions, but she vows to control her own destiny and escape. For if the Viking discovers her secrets, the laws of his people will force him to cast her aside...or kill her. And even Skatha, daughter of a goddess, might not escape the Viking's wrath...
