The wild magic that brought them together is nothing compared to what they find in each other's arms. Lorelei Michaels, flamboyant lead vocalist of the all-female rock band The Sirens, has a passion for myths and legends. She just never expected to find herself actually living one. While touring with the band, a Viking armband with an interesting history and a design known as the gripping beast throws her into a time warp-full of Norsemen, macho attitudes and a lamentable lack of modern amenities. Upon seeing the strange, beautiful woman being auctioned off, Erik Thorolfsson was mesmerized. Until the slave trader put his hands on her. With a roar of rage and sword drawn, he charged forward to take that which he wanted for his own. But he discovers owning her isn't enough, he has to make her his-for all time.
