The Current: A Battle of Seduction
(A Tales of Freya short story)
The "Tales of Freya" is a collection of sensual short stories set in the Viking age –
and it opens with "The Current – A Battle of Seduction"!
Viking warrior Aldaith meets his real match only after the battle:
Marked from the latest battle, Aldaith wants to recover by a stream. But instead of finding solitude, he stumbles on the fearless shield maiden Nyssa. The fierce beauty invites Aldaith into the water to engage in a very different kind of battle -- one for which his training leaves him unprepared.
"Sarah Dahl brings a crisp, contemporary voice to an ages-old world of battle, bloodshed and primal indulgences. Her refreshing style not only draws the reader back into ancient times; it brings the characters to us, allowing us to meet in the middle for a vibrant and accessible experience.
From two ravaged warriors reaping the spoils of war to the sensuality of a medieval menage, Ms. Dahl has a way of making scars sexy and luring out the vulnerability in the invulnerable."
J.D. Lexx, author of The Crimson Confessions
"With her unique writing style and in-depth knowledge of this bygone era, she brings the world of clashing swords, dashing warriors, and strong, independent shield maidens to life.
Brutality turns into sensuality in an instant, leaving the reader satisfied, yet craving more. Her writing is addictive, and every story in this brand new and exciting series is sure to thrill and delight."
Elaine Coetzee, author of Runo's Curse
"A clever concept, focusing not on the chieftains and knights, but the very people battling to love and survive. Very naughty in concept, steam and steel meet in harmony in the imagination."
Chris Cherry, author of the Bestselling Love and War novels
