Brandr the Far–Traveled has seen the world and a good many of the beautiful women in it. His bed skills are the stuff of steamy legend, his sword sings death, and he can call up fire from thin air. No one in a hundred years ever thought he could be enslaved through trickery and forced to wear the iron collar of a thrall—least of all him.
Until All She Desires is Him...
Katla the Black isn't just called so for her dark, silky hair. His new mistress has a temper as fierce as a warrior's and a heart as icy as the frozen North. But inch by delicious inch, Brandr means to make her melt...
(Terra's Thoughts) After having read several books by these authors I was a bit disappointed in this one. I found it just a bit slow even though it did have a nice story line.
Katla the Black is a widow and the leader of her people. Since her husband died she is not in any hurry to look for another since she would lose all everything she has worked so hard for. A dark haired beauty who is respected by her people for her wisdom and fair justice while keeping them all safe and sound, well feed and hard working. But now her brother's think she should marry but will she or could she give up what she loves more than anything else. Freedom!
Brandr the Far-Traveled is the son of a karl and a brave warrior who has been off fighting wars for the the safety of the world as they know it. Strong, honorable, fierce and much to good looking for his own good. His week point however is a good woman in his bed to satisfy the itch that is constantly plagueing him. Will this be his undoing or will he out smart even the most ruthless of characters?
The story is set on a small island with Katla and her people while introducing Brandr to a fate he never expected. A bit slow in the storyline but one that is at least more that the slam, bam, thank you mam that is out there. There are some nice steamy hawt scenes that help make up for the pace of the book and will make you sizzle with envy. I wish there had been a bit more to this book but it was still a good read.
