Sir Vidar of Spearhead is too busy guarding the borderlands to bother with the headache of selecting a bride. Ordered to marry by the king, he plans to grab a woman and get back to the warfront as soon as possible. That is, until he meets the alluring Lady Karre with her teasing eyes, lush lips and irresistible ways.
Known by many names, inter-dimensional thief Karre has only one purpose - take down the company that ruined her life. When her luck runs out and she's caught, Divinity Corporation condemns her to matrimony on a primitive, warrior-filled plane where Karre soon discovers there are worse fates than being the sexual prisoner to a man with insatiable carnal appetites.
Before long, days and nights filled with a surfeit of sexual bliss become something neither expected, and when Karre is taken, Vidar is forced to confront emotions a battle-hardened warrior never expected to feel.
Karre has her own issues with the Divinity Corporation and has been slipping through their fingers for quite some time but it appears her luck has just run out. Karre finds herself slap bang in the middle of the ceremony where selected Warriors choose brides; but it seems the gods are smiling as just before the ceremony, Karre gets a sneak peak at Sir Vidar and forms a plan of sorts. Poor Vidar has no idea the woman he lusts for is probably the most amazing chameleon he will ever meet and as her veneer starts to crack, this couple plunges headlong into a passionate relationship that's about to have explosive consequences!
Taking Karre does work as a standalone but it would be well worth your time (and money) to read the rest of this series. As each book adds yet another layer to the world building it's long been a wish of mine to discover more about the Divinity Corporation and just why these women in particular were chosen. Happily a lot is answered with this book, but I can well imagine Ms Pillow still has plenty of ideas to expand the world she has created.
This is essentially a romance with a very spunky heroine and she is definitely not afraid to take charge! Vidar, whilst bemused by his sexy wife, has no doubt she's meant for him and his willingness to embrace their differences make him a sweetly loyal husband. I won’t pretend it's all smooth sailing though, as this couple do quite literally come from different worlds and there's misunderstandings aplenty. It's a very passionate and steamy read and perhaps, there maybe too much sex for some readers, but this heroine was undoubtedly my favourite of the series.
A great end to what's been a wonderful series and these Warriors are very tempting indeed!
