    Summary

    From the sea dwelling serpents came the merciless Norse men in search of land and treasure. Forced to witness monstrosities, the young heiress, Rey, was ruthlessly bound and gagged; stolen from all that she knew. Immersed into a culture very different from her own, she discovers a world filled with contradictions and beliefs that she can only summarize as barbaric. In this world, her title held no value, for a thrall owned nothing, was nothing, and would always be nothing. But not in the eyes of the raven haired warlord known as Kylo; the very man who brought down her village with a clean sweep of his sword and a victorious battle cry. With strict beliefs and a faith that is unforgiving, Rey finds herself faced with a difficult path and a master she is unable to resist.

    Summary

    Rey had no time for Ben's shenanigans growing up together in Medieval Scotland. But he crashes back into her life when violent up risings on the horizon culminates with clan Ren attacking Castle Jakku whilst under the leadership of the notorious killer Kylo Ren.
    Extract

    “It’s not so easy to kill a man Rey. Would you cut me here?”
    He lifts her hand and places the length of the knife against his jugular, holding her gaze the whole time. Sickened she looks down.
    “No? Perhaps here?”
    He lets the knife drag across his left pectoral and drop to the point below his sternum, Rey swallows and tries to pull her hand back.
    “Ah-ah, if you are going to kill a man, you need to mean it Rey.”
    He angles the knife so that a sharp upward thrust towards his heart would sneak beneath his ribs and pierce it. Rey hisses, tries to stop this, but Ben holds her in place.
    “You need to want to see them bleed out their life blood for you. It’s not a game Rey.” She’s openly crying now, and he ghosts his lips along the edge of her cheekbone. “It’s life or death, Rey. My life or death.”

    Summary

    Rey certainly never expected to become the sole inheritor of her caretaker's farm and lands, but then the Reverend Luke Skywalker was always known as something of an eccentric. After a life of belonging nowhere, and of being a nobody, it is a welcomed change.

    The sudden reappearance of Luke's purportedly long-dead nephew is a slightly less gladdening development, by comparison, but Rey could at least use an extra pair of hands for the winter.

    As for the rest of the man, she will have to find out.

    Summary

    "I remember everything!" he snarls, loud enough to make her flinch. "How you move— the way you breathe—" His words hitch on a strangled half-sob; he stares at her like a man caught in a waking dream as he skims the line of her jaw with his knuckles, stopping to touch the pad of his thumb to her bottom lip. "How your eyes met mine in the starlight," he continues through a broken, haunted rasp of a voice, "and I felt like the look on your face."

    Or: What is alive must heal. What cannot heal must endure.
