Passions flare in the icy north in the third Sons of the North Romance novel from the author of The Warlord's Wife and The Iron Princess...
Sovia, daughter of Baron Losna, is on a mission to seduce Stål Magnusson, firstborn son of Swedish warlord Jarl Magnus Knutson and heir to his seat. With a civil war on, the stakes are high. The Baron needs the money and political alliance that Sovia's marriage to Stål would secure. Fortunately, Sovia's skill with men, not to mention the rugged good looks of her target, makes the assignment all too easy. But the tables turn when Sovia realizes she has taken the wrong Magnusson- Stål's twin brother Hök-to bed. Wrong brother or not, Hök is enamored, and offers to marry Sovia. When that offer is rejected by her father, Hök's heart and pride are broken.
Seven years later, as Lady Sovia is about to be executed by Norway's usurper king, Hök, now a battle-hardened warrior, comes to her rescue-by finally taking her hand in marriage. Though his intent is to take revenge, as well as her hereditary land, he cannot help but be impressed by her unbreakable spirit. But Lady Sovia has secrets that will make it nearly impossible for them to live happily ever after...
