Blog Tour: Naughty in Norway by Christine Edwards

Genre: Erotic Romance
Publication Date: November 1st 2013


Vail Fillion has left her home in Huntington Beach, California, to study Scandinavian Culture in Oslo, Norway. But she gets her first real taste of culture shock when she goes along with her friend Lisetta to a wild party at her cousin's biker bar. Vail is surprised to find such a large group of motorcycle enthusiasts in this often snow-bound country. She is even more stunned to discover that the bikers are normal guys, if perhaps even more physically imposing than your average Viking. Alreck Falstad--a 6'6" blond, tattooed stand-in for a Norse god--catches her eye but also scares her to death.

Just as Vail is starting to enjoy herself at the party, something truly frightening occurs. The evening is abruptly cut short by a brutal crime, and she is the lone witness. Before she can make it to the cops, Vail is drugged, loaded into Alreck's truck, and transported to his remote cabin in the Lofoten Islands.

Why has Alreck kidnapped her, and what are his plans for her in his snowy haven? Is he her savior, her nemesis, or both? Even if she could escape, would she truly want to?

Alreck hovers just outside the bathroom as I pull the door open, his legs spread wide and his arms crossed in front of him in a dominant stance. He watches me warily. “Choose a drink,” he says before stepping out of the doorframe. “Go find my wallet and I will,” I sass back at him with hands on my hips. He leans down within inches of my face and says in a harsh whisper, “Enough, woman. We’re not stopping again until the fuel runs out, so pick something to drink or you’ll go without.” Okay, what’s with the excessive alpha-ness? “Whatever.” I mumble to myself as I trudge past him and grab a giant bottle of Voss water. He slips the bottle from my fingers and stalks up to the register to pay. I see that he’s also purchasing a coffee along with another bottle of water. The forty-something female attendant bats her eyelashes at him and giggles as she gives him the total. If he notices at all then he’s not letting on. With his looks, women most likely hijack his cell on a regular basis to program their digits into it for him. Ugh! He takes my hand once again while carrying the bagged drinks in the other. We rush through the bitter cold toward his truck and this time he doesn’t attempt to help me get in. It is a struggle to climb into the cab, but once I’m seated I reach out and slam the door in his face, making certain that it’s left unlocked. Please let this plan work. My breathing is out of control as the adrenaline begins to course through my veins. I watch cautiously as he hauls his big frame up into the cab, and just as he reaches into the bag of drinks I lurch my door back open and jump down, falling hard onto my knees in the snow. It stings like a beast and I bite back a groan as I lurch to my feet and begin to run back, hell bent, toward the tiny store. I ran track throughout college and know that I’m quick, but my knees are killing me from the impact and the snowy ground is a far cry from a proper track. When I’m halfway across the parking lot, someone passes me in a sprint. Alreck? Before my brain can register how to evade him, he turns around and faces me with rage in his eyes before charging at me. He hauls me up and over his giant shoulder before I can so much as pivot away from him. Speechless, I look up in terror at the attendant who’s watching us from inside the window in stunned surprise. Like a complete Neanderthal, he locks a hold across my suspended legs and prowls right back to the station. He says something to her in Norwegian that, to my complete dismay, makes her laugh and wave to me as I’m carried away. “Call the …!” I wail, yet before I can complete the sentence a hard slap lands without mercy right on my ass cheek, effectively silencing me after I let out a startled, “Ooh!” as the burn spreads across my rear. The attendant gives me cheeky smile. What did he say? She seems to have zero clue what I’m desperately trying to convey to her. I’m doomed. Too frightened to struggle, I let my body go slack as I’m carried to the truck.

I wasn't sure what to expect with this book - it's by a newer author, and I wasn't loving the title - but I thought I'd give it a shot.  The book was done totally in Vail's POV - which helped with keeping you intrigued and curious about Alreck.  The image in your mind alone of Alreck had me all hot and bothered, but how he handled Vail was what clinched his status to another perfect book boyfriend.  Vail didn't make it easy for him, even if she was secretly lusting after him.  She gave him a run for his money as she kept trying to find a way home. 

I loved the quick pace of the book and how the story flowed, keeping me interested the whole way through.  If you love sexy Alpha males who are bad boys and belong to an MC then I think that you'll enjoy this book.  It may have you booking a trip to Norway in the near future!

4.5 Sweet Sizzling Stars
5/5 Sizzling Hearts for Heat!!
Ok, so this book really took me by surprise. I wasn't expecting such serious emotional depth. The title being "Naughty" led me to believe it might be an easy erotic read. Well erotic yes...but easy no! The erotic actually was mostly anticipation and sexual tension as high as Mount Everest. Vail (very intriguing name by the way) and Alrick just oozed with chemistry. I at one point wanted to schream..JUST DO IT ALREADY!!! Ok more than once actually!
But seriously this love story grew and grew and the emotions that Alrich showed Vail when she needed him just melted my heart.
Then ..his Dom cam out to play..yea..Alrich has a Dominant side that is so freaking sexy. Vail loved it and wanted more.
So did I ..but unfortunately the story had to move on.
Filled with suspense and passion I loved every moment and hated to see it end. I hope the next installment will let us peek into what happens with them and their future. I just loved that sexy Viking and want more of him!
