By Holly Bargo
Fleeing horrific abuse and an uncaring legal system in the USA, Zoe lands in Norway to study archeology, specifically pre-Viking civilization. With the nightclub where she worked closed down and her apartment building condemned, she needs a new job and a new place to live.
Her roommate and fellow student Tabetha comes to the rescue and invites her to move in with her family. Zoe's grateful for the offer and the warm welcome Tabetha's family extends to her, even though Tabetha's oldest brother discomfits her.
Wounded in battle against eco-terrorists who attempted to wrest control of an oil platform, elite sailor Lars moves back in with his family while he recuperates. Upon seeing his sister's roommate, he discovers that his father's "pow" theory of love isn't just a cute story: Zoe stirs his blood like nothing else.
Zoe's not looking for a relationship, but Lars' gentle persistence shows her that she can trust him. However, an enemy wants to make Lars suffer by harming what will hurt him most, and one of Zoe's abusers wants her back. She saved herself once, she'll have to do it again.

Thank you! As a hero, I think Lars is outstanding, because he's not an arrogant, womanizing jerk who treats women like toilet paper (something to be used once in a disgusting manner and discarded). Not every hero has to be a kinky billionaire. I also like Zoe. She's endured some terrible things, but she rises above them without indulging in alcoholic stupor or reckless, stupid behavior. Neither of them is perfect, but they're both good people--and why shouldn't good people get wonderful love stories, too?

"archeology, specifically pre-Viking civilization." - Ooh!

Yeah. I figured I'd do something a little different. ;-)

I liked that this is eco-terrorism. Unique option.

Thank you. I get really tired of reading about kinky billionaires and wanted to write of a better kind of hero.

What an interesting premise and the characters both sound very strong.

Thank you. The characters are strong: she's no doormat and he's actually a nice guy. Wow!

Sounds like an intense read. Love the Viking part.

I saw a program on the Ulfbehrt forge. I say forge because genuine carbon steel swords from that forge were made for about 200 years, which makes one think that Ulfbehrt may have been a family name or the name of the original blacksmith who discovered the secret to carbon steel and passed it down to his sons. It wasn't until 2014, I think, that a modern blacksmith figured out how to replicate the sword. It's a piece of art. Beautiful.
