The old eddas speak of dreki—fabled creatures that haunt the depths of Iceland’s volcanoes and steal away fair maidens.
Haakon wants none of such myths. For years he's searched for the beast that stole his wife, desperate to slay the golden dreki and rescue his precious Árja. He has sacrificed everything to find her—including his honor—but now Haakon knows the truth. His entire marriage was a lie. The woman he knew as his wife was no victim, but the dreki herself. And when he finally tracks down the deceitful princess, there will be a reckoning of passion and glory....
She came to him on a storm...
Long ago, Árdís gave her heart to a mortal man, despite knowing it could only end in tragedy. When her clan summoned her home, she had no choice but to leave—or see her husband pitted against her vicious cousin, Sirius.
When Sirius insists upon a betrothal that will help him gain the dreki throne, she is forced to flee—straight into the arms of the now-ruthless dragon hunter she once called husband. But can Haakon ever forgive her deceit? And can she save him from a spurned dreki prince who would see them both dead?

I loved Storm of Desire. Dragons, action, and passion done right. Haakon and Ardis were such a fiery pair. Their sparring was the stuff of legends, and I couldn't get enough of it. While we saw quite a bit of Haakon in the first book, this one showed us the other side of him. Seeing him with Ardis really put him in a different light. Speaking of Ardis, she was awesome. She was fierce, and learned a lot of really cool things about herself. I don't want to give any of that away. As usual, Bec McMaster wove a fascinating tale, and setup the next one so well, that I can't wait to get my hands on it.
Book two in Bec McMaster’s new series set in Norway, where dragons thrive and where it is deadly to be royalty, especially when you are one dragon princess who fled her human husband several years ago and is now being hunted by that very husband turned dragon slayer. Ardis left to protect the man she loves from her mother the queen, but she left in such a fashion that has left Haakon thinking a dragon stole her away, at least until Rurik sets him straight. Now Haakon wants vengeance and answers from his lying and deceitful wife. What he doesn’t expect is for that wife to seek him out and ask him for help to get her to her brother Rurik. Along the way, he starts to realize that there is more to why Ardis left all those years ago and when he discovers the truth, he is even more certain that he will fight for her and so they set out to find peace and to escape her vindictive mother and uncle. I loved their story. It was well written, strong, entertaining, action packed and passionate. It definitely left me wanting more. Can’t wait for Malin and Sirius’ story. So exciting and this one was definitely better than book one and book one was good. A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book and my comments here are my honest opinion.
