Nordic Bound by Christine Edwards
Rating: 4 stars
Ingvild would do anything to keep her little brother Kjetil out of trouble, even if that means committing a serious crime. The sinister leader of a Neo-Nazi group called the Norsemen asks her to steal for him in exchange for clearing her brother from his heavy gambling debt. She agrees, not realizing the chaos her act has just unleashed and the violent repercussions that will follow. A solitary Dom, Aksel prefers building custom furniture in his remote home to embracing the wild-biker lifestyle of his close friends. One night he tangles with a stunning thief who has managed to steal a priceless artifact owned by his family for generations. Acting on instinct, he shoots the woman, only to watch her flee into the arctic night with his most valued possession. Everything comes full circle when his best friend Mikkel, the leader of the Devil’s Wrath MC, mentions a mysterious woman injured by a rifle shot. Once Aksel gets his hands on her, there is no turning back, for Ingvild is a more precious prize than any artifact. Even if he can win her love, will this strong-willed woman be open to the world of bondage and submission?
I always enjoy Christine Edwards books, and Nordic Bound was a book I breezed through, intrigued by the plot and loving the romance. Ingvild and Aksel’s story is intense – Ingvild is attempting to save her brother from the trouble he’s gotten himself into, while Aksel is the perfect Dom to her submissive. Brought together when saving her brother comes at the price of stealing from Aksel, their story begins, and from there, things only pick up and get more intense.
I love how well Christine Edwards balances her stories – the romance is the more prevalant story, yet it cannot exist or flourish without the rest of the plot and the danger that comes with it. It is one of the best things about her books, and Nordic Lights was no exception.
Short and sweet, this book is one to finish in a day and sweep you off your feet and into the bewitching world that Christine Edwards has crafted. Ingvild and Aksel’s story is one you won’t want to miss.
