Vail Fillion has left her home in Huntington Beach, California, to study Scandinavian Culture in Oslo, Norway. But she gets her first real taste of culture shock when she goes along with her friend Lisetta to a wild party at her cousin’s biker bar. Vail is surprised to find such a large group of motorcycle enthusiasts in this often snow-bound country. She is even more stunned to discover that the bikers are normal guys, if perhaps even more physically imposing than your average Viking. Alreck Falstad—a 6’6” blond, tattooed stand-in for a Norse god—catches her eye but also scares her to death. Just as Vail is starting to enjoy herself at the party, something truly frightening occurs. The evening is abruptly cut short by a brutal crime, and she is the lone witness. Before she can make it to the cops, Vail is drugged, loaded into Alreck’s truck, and transported to his remote cabin in the Lofoten Islands. Why has Alreck kidnapped her, and what are his plans with her in his snowy haven? Is he her savior, her nemesis, or both? Even if she could escape, would she truly want to?

Vail Fillion has left California to study Scandinavian Culture in Oslo, Norway. Living with her friend Lisetta has been fun for Vail. Always doing stuff together, Lisetta invites her to her cousin’s biker bar for a party. Vail being nervous is convinced to go.
“Come on, Vail, it’s Saturday night and I thought you Americans had a terrific sense of adventure.”
The party turns out to be very interesting for Vail, she learns that scary bikers are not all that bad and cannot take her eyes off the one man that she has been warned to stay away from. Deciding she needs some space and fresh air she goes out into the very chilling weather and becomes a witness to a murder of one of the club members.
Lisetta has to keep Vail from going to the cops and giving a statement on Mikkel’s orders. Once Mikkel shows up to talk to Vail, and she notices a couple of the members there including the very hot Alreck, she knows this is not going to be good.
“Bail now, Vail! Very bad idea!”
Mikkel gives Alreck an order to take Vail away and keep her safe. While Lisetta packs her stuff, and Vail decides she wants no part of this, Alreck must knock her out with some ether just to get her in the truck to get her somewhere safe.
Vail is unsure if Aleck is trying to kill her or protect her knowing he was released from jail only six weeks ago. The only thing on Vail’s mind is escaping this man that scares and excites her. After multiple attempts of trying to escape she realizes she is never going to escape this man or the feelings she is feeling for him.
“Why do you have to be so fucking beautiful? Why, Vail, tell me? I live my life by complete control and rigid rules, yet with you its all fucking chaos. Do you know that, woman? Do you have any idea what you do to me?” His eyes are pained and questioning.”
This is turning out to be one of my favorite series. I love all of the characters and having the suspense in this book just adds to the excitement while reading. The intensity and passion that comes from Alreck and Vail is so entertaining. After reading this book be sure to read Nordic Lessons for a very enjoyable read.
My Favorite Moment: I absolutely love every time that Vail tries to escape this man. My all time favorite was when she takes his truck and honestly believes that she can finally be free.
“Easy, easy, not too forceful, he can’t catch you now. You’re the one with the vehicle!”
My Heartfelt Moment: My heartfelt moment is also when Vail tries to escape her “kidnapper” and is stuck out in the freezing cold with no help in sight.
