Overview

Desire can heal the coldest heart—or burn it to ashes.

Alrik Gunn knows from bitter experience that change isn't always for the better. From the woman who annihilated his Viking clan to the goddess who tricked him into centuries of slavery, betrayal has dogged his existence. The Goddess of Love is going to let him avenge his family, but for a price. As a Phoenix-a merchant of change-he must grant a human woman three chances to change her life.

When former Irish dancer Calleigh McCarthy tosses a carved-bird statue that belonged to her ex into a roaring bonfire, she unwittingly summons an honest-to-god Phoenix. A sexy, irresistible Viking who offers her an unbelievable bonus-three get-out-of-her-crappy-life-free cards. She'll take it, even if it means guarding her cautious heart against the dark pain behind Alrik's eyes.

Alrik has vowed never to let love sway him again, but Calleigh's innocence and kindness throw him off balance. Yet even as his need for revenge fades and his love for her grows, he is bound to let her make her choices without interfering.

One wrongly chosen word, and any chance for happiness-for either of them-will go up in flames.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Breathtaking prose, enthralling story-telling, a rare find. Painter is a major talent!”- NYT Bestselling Author Gena Showalter

“Highly entertaining, utterly charming and memorable. A fantastic story. Kristen Painter has a new fan.”
~ Long And Short Reviews

“I was completely entralled in this debut novel by Kristen Painter. Who doesn't want a sexy, uberhot Viking at their beck and call? This book made me pause and think about what I would want to change in my life and the consequences that it may cause. Captivating and charming.”
~ Publishers Weekly, Beyond Her Book blog

“Painter's tale is a great read with a strong, likable heroine and a hero to die for. The paranormal aspects are woven seamlessly into contemporary New York, and the author's fun writing style captures the mood perfectly.”
~ Romantic Times Book Club Magazine

    Very good read.

    The description of the book that is provided by the site is extremely inaccurate. It is not a sequel to Colter's Woman, that book is a completely different author.

    This story is about a Viking that suffers the ultimate betrayal by the woman he loves. He ended up in service to the Goddess Freya. He became a Phoenix, bound to change the destiny of of whomever gains his talisman. Constantly seeking his own freedom so he might gain vengence upon the one that murdered him.

    Calleigh is a girl that hasn't had anything go right for her all week. She found out that her fiance was cheating on her with her best friend/cousin. So she set out to have a bonfire with all the stuff he left in her house, starting with that weird eagle looking thing she ordered for his birthday from e-bay...

    I'd recommend the book. It is a romantic read, but there are no explicit sex scenes. It has a fairly good plot line, though it did remind me of the Dark Hunter Series by Sherrilyn Kenyon.
