Northman's Pleasure is related to Northman's Passion but can easily be read as a standalone. The story is a sexy, brooding tale about a man who refuses to love and the woman who has loved him from afar. Grim is a difficult hero to get to know but his compassion drew me in. Asgerd survived brutality at the hands of her kidnapper but never lost her spirit. When the two come together, the chemistry is sizzling. Ms. Hill pens very sensual and erotic love scenes and brings the two characters to life. This is a delightful, fun read and perfect for a weekend getaway.
Grim Hammerhand doesn't trust women, even the one he secretly lusts after. When Asgerd is taken and brutalized by another, Grim is sworn to rescue her. Asgerd has survived but fears that the warrior she loves will no longer want her after her ordeal. Grim not only claims the kidnapper's lands but also Asgerd. Is it possible that he really loves her?
Legend says Grim Hammerhand is half wolf. Vowing never to marry, the muscular red-haired warrior saves his passion for the battlefield and the forge. That is, until the woman he secretly lusts after is abducted.

After the king sends Grim to rescue his daughter and claim Stein’s land, the passion between the couple finally ignites. In the end, Grim’s mistrust of all women could destroy their one true chance for happiness.
