Goodreads 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…

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…

Darcy's Review:
OMG, this book was so much fun to read. It had all the characteristics of books that I come to rely on from this author, woman that are strong, fight like crazy, are slightly crazy, have a wicked sense of humor and a razor sharp tongue, and really hot sex scenes.
I wasn't too sure when I started this book, but soon I was sucked into this story and really loved Neecy and her ornery personality. Yager was fun too, he was so much like a love sick puppy dog it was fun watching Neecy beating him down, but he just wouldn't give up and there in lies so much of the fun of the book. I also loved getting to know the Crows and the Ravens and how they were so different from each other, yet so a like too. The way each would pick and bug the other like siblings really made for some fun scenes, especially the ones between Mike and Janelle. What a great book to read!!

Thanks Michelle!!

If you haven't read Shelly Laurenston yet, run do not walk to check her out. She is fantastic!! She also writes as GA Aiken, and that series has all of her trademarks. She has 2 great series The Pride and The Magnus Pack, both have weaker 1st books, but they get so much better as they go on.
