    Summary

    Sequel to Hostage of Fate. Part Two of my series Aethelflaed: Lady of the Mercians, an AU take on Aethelflaed and Erik's story. Read Part One before continuing here :)

    Aethelflaed and Erik's plan has been foiled, and Aethelflaed is left hopeless and alone as she is returned to her husband Aethelred. But Erik lives, and dreams of a new plan to find Aethelflaed and make her his own. Together, they may be able to fulfill their fates...and fulfill their oaths to each other. But it will be a hard road, full of love and treachery, secret alliances and betrayals, and the inexorable pull of fate towards war. How will Aethelflaed reclaim her power, and her destiny? Will their love make it through to the other side? Only time with tell.

    "Sometimes Erik felt that he had little care for the power. It was only Aethelflaed he truly wanted. But if he had to, he would bring down a kingdom to have her."

    Summary

    The Lady Aethelflaed has been taken captive by the Norse brothers Siegfried and Erik Thurgilson. A hostage in the bloody conflict between her father King Alfred and the foreign invaders, she does whatever she can to maintain her pride and composure in the face of her ordeal. But she is surprised by the man she finds in Erik, and soon a forbidden passion starts to build between them. She begins to realize that she must take her life and her love into her own hands, or risk returning to her cruel husband Aethelred. Can the lovers forge a new fate? Or do they walk the path of a fool's destiny? Only time will tell...

    A whopping, lovingly-rendered, epically slow burning retelling of Aethelflaed and Erik's story, with the hope for a new ending. Canon is crossover between the book (Sword Song) and the show (Season 2). Part One is now complete. The follow-up, called Fate's Lady, is complete, and Book Three - called Fate and Folly - is underway.

    Summary

    Adultery and lust were sinful things, but in the moment, Aethelflaed couldn’t bring herself to care.

    God wouldn’t have placed such a man in her path if he didn't want her to do it.

    Summary

    Kylo’s fingers slowly begin to curl, gently grasping her hand. An icy cold shiver shot through her body as his thumb brushed over her skin. Her heart felt like it was going to explode out her chest, and a storm of butterflies raged in her stomach.

    Rey looked into his eyes. He was watching her intently. Was he feeling the same way she was right now?

    Rey’s squeezed her eyes shut and held her breath. She could hear Luke’s words echo in her mind. “You went straight for the Dark,” he had said “You didn't even try to resist it”.

    Rey’s breath caught in her throat. She looked back at Kylo.

    Emotions chased themselves across his face, a reminder that their connection was all too real.

    “Join me,” he said. “Please.”

    This time, her reply was not in anger, only sad honesty.

    “Never.”

    ***

    Seven months since the battle of Crait, the Resistance is only starting to recover their strength. Rey feels lost, struggling between her loyalty to the Resistance and curiosity for the Dark side which draws her back to Kylo Ren.
