What may save their people could tear them apart...
A sickness has swept through Ragnar and Sif's Viking tribe and their survival now depends on renewal and rebirth. A fertility ritual demanded by the goddess Freya promises to provide Sif with children. The catch: it requires letting another warrior, Gerhard, into Sif's and Ragnar's marriage bed.
Can Sif's and Ragnar's love survive such a sacrifice and bring healing to their people?
