Here at ABM we’re kicking off our Romantic Treats Blog Blitz a day early. We were just so excited we couldn’t wait any longer! Our thanks to Delilah Devlin for providing us with our first taste of goodies for October!
I have to confess to a fondness for warriors. Something about the big lugs does it for me. Brawn over brain, or at least I thought that was what I preferred before I began writing my current series The New Icelandic Chronicles. As often happens to a writer, the muse led me along a path that found me describing fearsome Viking warriors who might be technologically challenged when fighting a war in space, but who adapted to their new challenge and triumphed.
When I began envisioning these men and the adventure they’d face, I let my imagination run free. Nothing could come easy to my Vikings. They live on an Icebound planet with a frozen ocean infested with sea dragons. They live under a harsh embargo which denies them the technology and comforts their hard-earned wealth deserves.
Still, they needed another challenge. One more immediate. What beside the precious ore the Vikings mined could entice a advanced culture to steal away those brawny men? Once I knew that answer, I knew what Eirik would face when he reached the warm planet of Helios. Add a touch of Roman spectacle, genetic engineering and heroine just as stubborn and prideful as Prince Eirik, and I think you’ll find a tale worthy of those adventurous men who conquered Northern Europe, sailed to the Americas and inspired terror wherever they went.
Enslaved by a Viking releases October 4th. I can’t wait to hear what you think. Be sure to visit my blog at DelilahDevlin.com. I’ll be giving away weekly prizes during the month of October to celebrate the release.
Though proud and strong, Eirik, heir to the Ulfhednars kingdom, found himself seduced and taken from his home world by a bounty-hunting vixen, who sold him into slavery. Purchased by a wealthy, Consortium-backed brothel, he is kept at a heavily guarded and secure breeding facility, where he is forced to feed the lustful whims of Helios’s elite at night. He bides his time, waiting for a chance to escape and get his revenge on the woman who betrayed him…
Once a sex thrall, Fatin earned her freedom through service. Now, as a bounty hunter, she is determined to earn enough to buy her sister’s papers from the same brothel she escaped. For this, she abducts a brutishly handsome, breed-worthy specimen from the Viking planet and delivers him to auction. But her desire for justice and his desire for freedom may consume both of them in a passion neither wanted—or can resist.
