Synopsis

 New York Times bestselling author Anya Bast introduces her newest paranormal romance, set in the world of Norse mythology… A damned Viking warrior. Centuries ago Broder Calderson committed murder. As punishment, he was given over to the dominion of Loki, the Trickster God, made part of the Brotherhood of the Damned and condemned to an immortal life of battle against the Blight, blood-drinkers from Hel. A mysterious woman he can’t resist. One thousand years to the day he was damned, Loki allows him a woman as reward for his good service and repentance of his crimes. Once Broder sees Jessamine Hamilton, he is overcome with need. But Jessa is no ordinary woman, and the truth of who—and what—she is could have dangerous consequences. A tormented man she can’t deny. Though a future together is impossible, the warrior’s touch ignites an irresistible passion in Jessa. But every heated kiss pushes them closer to destruction. Forced to return to the brutality of his Viking past to protect her, will Broder surrender forever to his darkest impulses?

Jessa and Broder’s story kept me reading long after the clock said I should’ve been sound asleep.

this wasn’t my favorite Bast read. I struggled through the first half or so with the slow moving plot and the lack of connection between myself and the book, and the characters themselves.

Embrace of the Damned is a sexy, dark paranormal romance. If you like sexy Vikings, smart-ass women and Norse mythology then this is one Viking romance I definitely recommend.

Ms Bast gives the readers a new storyline and a new reality to lose themselves in. She has continued as an interesting, intense, sensual writer who gives hours of enjoyment to her readers. The book is well paced and thought out with entertaining primary and secondary characters that I can't wait to read more of.

Tortured Viking heroes, cursed in different ways, they each revealed slivers of their personalities that has me very excited and hopeful that they will find more worthy matches than Broder in upcoming Brotherhood of the Damned books.
