Elora is a cultivated Londoner visiting her brother in Oslo, Norway. With her brother away on business, she decides to do without his permission and borrow his classic Jaguar to take in the sights. But when she pulls over to the side of the road to take pictures, the car won't start up again. In a blind panic, Elora has nowhere to turn, until a warrior of a man stops to help her. A massive, handsome hunk of a man, clad head to toe in black leather.
Elora has never encountered anyone like Mikkel. As much as he frightens her, she realizes she is out of options. Then comes the exhilarating journey home on his custom ride, and Elora falls hard for her knight in leather armor, an alpha male eager to teach her the rules of Dom/sub relationships. Mikkel is head of his motorcycle club, and in the days that follow, Elora becomes increasingly entangled in the culture of bondage, bikes, and club rivalries. But how can Elora fully commit to a man whose world might as well exist on another planet?

Read an Excerpt
A surprised gush of breath leaves my lungs as his hands grasp each of my bare, chilled thighs to give a possessive squeeze before he dismounts.
"Enjoy the ride?"
I dismount with his assistance, quickly remove the elastic and sift my fingers through my braid, setting my red hair free once again. With my heart still pounding fiercely like a Japanese Taiko drum, I tell him--and I know I'm gushing--"Yes, there's such a sense of power being on your motorcycle. Although I have to admit, I'm relieved that you're the one driving. It seems like it would be far too much power for me to handle between my legs."
Oh no, oh shit!
I watch his expression change the second the unintended double entendre leaves my lips. His eyes are smoldering, his breathing is more rapid. A perfect mask of male lust stares down at me. He's absolutely stunning. His huge, hot palm reaches forward to glide through my hair, firmly cupping the back of my bare neck. He leans down several inches, closing any distance between us.
In a thick whisper, he says very slowly, "Oh, I have no doubt you can handle all that power perfectly, Elora."
Muffled, thumping sounds of rock music engulf us as we become lost in each other's eyes.
The heady moment is broken when he suddenly lets his eyes slide shut, drags in a deep breath, and changes the subject. "You're proving to be the ultimate distraction, min skjønne. And I'm not easily influenced. We need to move now, we're already over an hour late."
Without another word, he grabs hold of my hand and turns to climb the steep flight of wooden steps. I glance out over the parking lot. Not a space to be had. There must be over a hundred people here.
He stops before the solid black door and turns to face me, his warm fingers threading confidently through mine. "I'm tending bar tonight, Elora, but I'm gonna place you right in my line of sight and introduce you to some quality friends. That work for you babe?"
"That's fine, Mikkel."
He lowers his body down farther to whisper against my parted lips, "My girl's so fucking sweet."
His girl? Yes, I absolutely adore that.

If you are jonesing for a new motorcycle club to fall in love with, then look no further than author Christine Edwards’ new release, NORDIC LESSONS. NORDIC LESSONS is the second book in the NORDIC LIGHTS series - although best enjoyed if read in order, each book definitely stands on it's own. You can check out the first book on Amazon, the title is NAUGHTY IN NORWAY. Elora is a British artist visiting her brother in Norway; when she borrows his prized possession, a classic Jaguar, and finds herself broken down on the side of the road, a dangerous looking sexy man comes to her rescue. By the author’s description, Mikkel is a “warrior of a man… clad head to toe in black leather” – he is imposing, overbearing and bossy as hell… Can this handsome stranger in this strange land be trusted? Mikkel calls to something deep inside Elora, something she has never felt. Mikkel is definitely “book-boyfriend” worthy. He is every thing I crave in my erotic romance reads. He’s rough, but gentle. He’s funny, but serious. He is fiercely protective of what he deems as “his”. Mikkel and Elora’s initial contact is a bit rocky and she is not sure what to make of the dude. After realizing her options are limited, she agrees to jump on the back of his bike – but just this once… [SEXY TEASER - SEE MY BLOG REVIEW OF THE VISUAL] If you have seen any of my other reviews of Christine Edwards’ work, then you know that I am a fan. Although I have loved her work from the beginning, she has definitely taken her work “to the next level” with each new book she has published. I kind of feel like I have been on this incredibly exciting journey with her (it helps that she always takes me to some new and exciting land with each book) - it’s been fun to watch her grow as an author. NORDIC LESSONS is a treat; it’s one of my favorites to date. If you love discovering new authors and you haven’t given author Christine Edwards’ books a shot, then I would highly recommend getting on board – she has a lot of entertaining material waiting for you! Excerpt: This is one of my favorite scenes that, in my opinion, totally epitomizes Mikkel – it demonstrates his alpha side; he’s raw and unfiltered and Elora’s fiery, but submissive side. It shows that he’s funny without trying to be; this scene made me chuckle as it perfectly exemplifies his cave-man-like persona – like she hasn’t been running around wearing stuff like this her entire life! lol… He is such a Neanderthal, but I love him!

I received this book in exchange for an honest review. 'Nordic Lessons' by Christine Edwards is book two in the "Nordic Lights" series. This is the story of Elora and Mikkel. I do feel this is a standalone book but Ms. Edwards writing is so good you don't want to miss anything! Elora is visiting/ staying with her brother in Norway when she meets Mikkel. Mikkel is very different type of man than she is used to. Mikkel is very tall, muscular, hard type and a biker. Elora isn't used to being talked to like he talks to her...nor has she every road on a motorcycle. Mikkel actually is a owner of a motorcycle bar. Elora is a painter and seems to be totally different from him. But they both are attracted to each other from the very start. I love how possessive Mikkel is about Elora and how he first thought she was an angel! This was another great...hot book by Ms. Edwards!

## I don't know. I've read up to the second chapter and it all seems so mechanical. When the characters are thinking and speeking. Like the author is trying too hard to be erotic. Just can't read any more.
Nordic Lessons by Christine Edwards 4 1/2 of 5 stars Christine Edwards takes us back to the beautiful land of Norway. While this is written as a stand alone, we do see some old friends and it is always nice to catch up. Elora and Mikkel meet when he rescues her and her broken down car. She's just moved from London and is staying with her currently absent brother. Mikkel and Elora quickly move into a relationship. As they test the waters, it becomes apparent Mikkel is a dom and Elora a sub. Elora's brother is not happy with her choice of partners upon his return. There is some drama involving Mikkel's motor cycle club and a lot of hot sex between a dom and his new sub. Mikkel and Elora are a perfect match in the end. I have read a few books by this author, I think this is my favorite. I hope other members of the club gets stories! I would highly recommend this book, read the first one as well if you haven't already. *a complimentary copy was given in exchange for an honest review* Susan, My Secret Book Spot
