Erik the Tempered (Dokiri Brides #2)

She never thought to find love. He never thought to keep it.


Sold to whoremasters by her own husband, Tysha flees into the night, pursuers hot on her trail. For once in her life, the merciless gods take pity on her and deliver her to a protector, a quiet man who is as wild as he is noble. Near him, Tysha’s long-dormant heart awakens, drawing ever closer, even as she senses him burying his own.  

Obligated to choose a bride for himself, Erik has spent weeks in half-hearted pursuit of a woman. Any woman will do, just so long as he can easily say goodbye to her. However, a turn of fate binds him to a mysterious woman who is as lovely as her green eyes are haunting. To lose himself to her would cost him everything he holds dear: his family, his home, his purpose. Though with each passing day the scales begin to balance, and Erik is less certain which price is higher.

In the medieval world of Sestoria, along the frigid peaks of looming mountains, a man and woman will learn both the reward and price of unconditional love.

 I should let her go.

He didn’t. He held her even tighter, his arms in open rebellion. She didn’t whimper, didn’t stir. There was no sign of the turmoil that had haunted her as she lie curled against him.

Erik’s face drifted forward until he felt her wild, stray hair tickling his face. A sense of giddiness overtook him as he breathed in her scent. Had he ever felt this way? So content? So alive? So terrified?
He was like an orphan that had lived a life destitute, only to be plucked from the streets and plunged into the warmth of a loving family. For all the pleasure and contentment of this moment, thoughts of returning to his old life, of losing her, made his stomach clench and his heart sicken.
