Published by: Vestal Valley Press

Genres: Urban Fantasy, Romance
All of Asgard depends on Thor, and his legendary hammer Mjölnir, to protect them from their foes. So when Thor returns one night without his hammer, refusing to say how it was lost or where it may be, all of Asgard is at risk. Loki tracks Mjölnir to the muscular arms of the fearsome warlord Thrym, who reluctantly agrees to a deal: Thrym will return Thor’s hammer in exchange for Freyja, the most beautiful woman in Asgard.
There’s only one problem with Loki’s deal. Freyja refuses to marry the ruthlessly handsome Thrym. Low on options, Loki insists he can still retrieve the hammer. All it takes is wrapping Thor in a wedding dress obnoxious enough to allow him to pass for Freyja.
Once inside the dark confines of Thrym’s castle, however, things take an erotic turn not even Loki the Trickster could have predicted…
This erotic twist on the traditional Norse myth is highly explicit, and not intended for readers under 18.
When I’m offered one of this author’s books to review, I will jump at the chance.
Her unique retelling of existing Norse myths is a refreshing (and erotic) addition to my kindle catalogue.
This is very firmly a novella at just 31 pages. But what she manages to fit into those pages is shot through with humour and heat and characters that are surprisingly human in their desires. Even if they are endowed with a rather large … hammer.
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.
