Christian knew who it was, who it had to be, even before he saw her—little Jacey Morgan. Alone and defenseless, trespassing on Æsir land on the night of a dark moon hunt while there were monsters prowling the night.
His heart nearly stopped in his chest when he came out of the woods into the open clearing and spotted her, wearing that oversized coat and slowly backing away from the jötunn stalking toward her. Christian kicked his horse forward and adjusted the angle of his blade, aiming to position himself between Jacey and the jötunn. It would be close, too damn close.
What the Hel was she doing out here?
When he realized he wasn’t going to make it in time, he shouted to distract the creature. The demon hesitated, lifting its head and rearing back slightly onto its haunches to meet the new threat.
One year after his bride left him at the altar for his best man, Christian Jager is stuck in a rut. Working at the local co-op, dating the same handful of women he’s known since childhood, riding with the wild hunt twice a month to keep the jötnar who destroyed Asgard from invading earth.
He wants something more, but he’s not quite sure what it is until Jacey Morgan blows into his life like a breath of fresh air. A wildlife biologist who’s come to Ragnarok to investigate rumors of a strange predator in the area, she’s also a native Midgardian who can’t ever learn the truth about Christian or his clan. His job is to distract her and get her the Hel out of town as quickly as possible so the Æsir can take care of the problem themselves.
Jacey wants the case wrapped up quickly too, and she’s not about to get distracted by the sinfully sexy man who’s so unexpectedly determined to help. With a new degree and a plan to get out of Iowa, she’s ready to move on to bigger and better things… A dragon isn’t quite what she had in mind.
