Hunting Season (The Gathering #1) by Shelly Laurenston ~V^^^V
From Book Blurb: Stubborn, lethal, and from Jersey...what more could a Viking warrior want from his woman? The Gathering, Book 1 Neecy Lawrence, winged warrior for a Viking goddess and second-in-command of the fierce Crows, doesn't know what to do with a nice guy. As it is, making up for a past she'd sooner forget leaves her barely polite most days. But Raven leader and loyal Odin warrior, Will Yager, isn't just nice. He's gorgeous, hot, and a distraction she simply can't afford. Yager has wanted Neecy in his life-and in his bed-for a long time. Not just for a night, but forever. And, like any self-respecting Viking, he'll stop at nothing to get what he wants. So what if she's the most difficult, complex, never-gives-him-a-break woman he's ever known? She's more than worth the effort. In fact, she's worth everything. And if it turns out that twenty-four hours of non-stop, any-way-she-wants-it sex doesn't work with Neecy? Then it looks like he'll just have to get a little more creative... This book has been previously published. Warning: Contains a strong, intelligent, ass-kicking heroine; an alpha hero with the occasional geeky tendency; gritty, realistic violence; and sex so hot that, well, let's just say there's not enough ice water in the world.
This was an interesting and steamy story. I liked both characters and the whole Norse mythology angle. Nothing much to say about it other than is had all the things we have come to love about Shelly Laurenston's stories. The humor was there and the steam was high. ~Michelle
