*I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review*
It’s strange how someone who knows anger so well can be the one who helps you find your peace. I never would have thought a bad temper would lead you to your soulmate, but in this case Mikkel and Joanna are make for each other.
Joanna started losing her temper after her sister died and she realized how inept the human population truly is. After that, even the simplest of things pushed her over the edge.
“I am grateful for my hobbies. She stopped, amended. My hobby. Which consists of sitting in a bar drinking my liver to death so I don’t go after the world with a tire iron.”
Mikkel was cursed by a witch and when he loses his temper he literally explodes with rage. After so many years he still can’t control it as well as he’d like, though he sure does try.
“Mikkel had tried to keep his temper all day. Having to work with a killer hangover was one thing, being mocked by a worm was another, but being rejected by the woman he wanted more than anyone in centuries…it was more than he could handle.”
The attraction between Mikkel and Joanna is crazy instant, and the things that she thinks are so contradictory to her words that it’s kind of funny. But despite her words she can’t resist a Viking. And no matter how many women he’s had, no one will drive him as crazy or make him as needy as her.
Her Fiery Viking has sex, humor, a crazy lunatic, and a very useful stun gun. It could have easily been made into a much longer book, but if you’re looking for a mouthy chick, a sexy Viking, backroom-can’t-make-it-home sex mixed with kidnapping and a creepy man with homicidal tendencies then this is the perfect quick read.
My Favorite Laughable Moment: When Joanna realized how old Mikkel is her mind just rambles in attempt to comprehend and it’s hilarious.
“… There wouldn’t even be tomatoes in Europe until he was two hundred years old! He couldn’t have eaten pizza until he was a thousand!”
