Goodreads synopsis:

Bram is an ancient Viking with too strong a conscience to be the blood-stained conqueror his warrior family wants him to be. When his family takes on the wrong witch, he is cursed to be an invisible water wrath. Over one thousand years later he finds himself drifting, lost and alone at the bottom a Scotland loch, waiting for someone or something to end his suffering.

Audrey is a modern-day American witch with a broken heart visiting her family’s Scottish cabin for the first time. She came to Scotland to heal her heart, but will her magic touch be her final undoing?

NOTE: Each book in the “Her Elemental Viking” series stands on its own and can be read in any order.

My review:

I went into this book with the expectation of it falling a little short from the first story….which was hilarious and hot(see my review here). I am happy to say that I was proven wrong.

This book was great. Short but great.

Audrey had inherited a cottage on a remote island from her grandmother. She came to the island totally expecting a rundown cottage and finds a castle. After poking around for a bit, she decides to take a rowboat out onto the loch. While she’s out there, she decides “Hey, isn’t it a wonderful idea to sunbathe naked in the rowboat.” Totally not thinking of splinters or people unexpectedly coming upon her while she is naked in the row-boat. She thinks “It’s remote and no one will be here, so let’s do it”. Now if it was me and I decided to sunbathe naked in a rowboat, I would get a splinter in my butt and, with my luck, a plane full of grannies and school kids would decide to fly over at that exact moment and get an eyeful. So glad that didn’t happen in this book.

Bram is a Viking warrior who has been cursed to be water because the witch that cursed him accused him of being spineless. The actual curse went like this

I curse you to truly be the spineless puddle you are. Not until you prove the strength of your conviction and two households work together for your release, will my curse be broken.

So he spent a thousand years at the bottom of the loch until Audrey rows on by and disrobes. He immediately becomes aroused at the sight of her. Not getting laid for a thousand years will do that to a guy. It’s only when Audrey drops her necklace into the lake and dives after it, does he get a chance to make his move.

And oh boy, did he ever. Not going to go into the rest of the book (you need to read it) but there oral sex (on both ends) and one explosive sex scene. I had to fan myself during those scenes, they were so hot!!

How many stars will I give Her Steamy Viking? 4

Why: The sex was out of this world and I loved that Bram was a Viking with a conscience. Audrey was pretty awesome too. She had spunk…lol.

Will I reread: Yes

Will I recommend to family and friends: Yes

Age range: Adult

Why: Sex, sex, and more sex.
