Description from the publisher:

It's hard to be good when the other side is oh, so bad.
The Valkyrie, Book 2

Linnea isn't exactly happy with her life as one of Odin's handmaidens, but she has always done what is expected of her. Yet all the while she knows the truth--the Valkyries are stretched thinner every day. And now Evil has stopped playing by the rules and started recruiting minions from the supernatural gene pool.

Her newest assignment: counter the vampires' plan by seeking out brave male souls with supernatural powers to join Valhalla's cause. Leaping through waterfalls of time and into legendary battles has never bothered her before, but even with her magic, it's tough to beat the bloodsuckers to the best warriors before they can be turned.

She never expected her quest to bring her face to face with love, in the form of Kerr Laochailan. Their innocent temptation flares into desire, so hot and fast it attracts the wrong kind of attention. In a cruel joke of fate, Kerr is torn from her. Yet her mission goes on. And Fate isn't through playing tricks on the lovers yet, nor is it done introducing lovers to her bed...

Warning: This book contains a butt-kicking female, torn between her love of a stubborn Scottish vampire and a super-sexy Italian blood sucker. Oh, and a lot of fight scenes. 

This novel contains adult content and is intended for mature audiences only. Must be 18 years or older to read.
This is the second book in the Valkyrie series.  Please do read them in order.

If you haven’t yet read book, The Valkyrie, then stop…. Don’t read any further.  I’m begging you – go read it first!  Trust me, you want to.

Now, for those you have read The Valkyrie, remember reading it and thinking, “Oh, how did she meet Kerr the first time?  Who is Corbin to her?  Gregorios?  Lucha?”   I know for me, I just knew those were rich stories and felt disappointment that I didn’t know the rest of it.  Well, as Paul Harvey used to say, here is “the rest of the story.”  But seriously, do not read this one first.  Allow yourself the mystery and read it as intended.  I’m glad I did; it made for such an outstanding journey.

I read this book in less than a day.  I absolutely could not put it down.  I would have finished it sooner, but I kept getting interrupted (these people actually want to discuss business while I’m traveling through time and around the world!)  I was even trying to read it while making obligatory phone calls.

Please, Mandy Roth, please, with a cherry on top, I’m wishing for book three!
