Nothing can stop Raine Cooper when she wants something…

Raine finally knows that her gorgeous neighbor, Torin St. James, is a legend straight out of Norse mythology, and that her feelings for him are strong. Torin is crazy about Raine too, breaking the one rule he lives by: Never fall for a mortal. The problem is he no longer remembers her, his memories erased by Norns—Norse destiny deities—to punish her for defying them.

She will make Torin forget his one rule a second time and fall in love with her all over again.

But she quickly learns that well-laid plans do not work when dealing with deities and supernatural beings. Desperate, Raine makes choices that could not only tear her and Torin further apart, but lead to the destruction of everything and everyone she loves.


EXCERPT

His attitude stank, even though I knew about his loneliness. I was meant to take it away, complete him. The thought fueled my anger. Before I realized my intention, I poked him in the chest. “It’s only crappy because you are too pig-headed to change. You choose to be alone when you don’t have to be. You had a chance to make me immortal, and you took the moral high ground.”

He grabbed my finger. “I’d never knowingly sentence a Mortal to this life, not even one as lovely as you.”

That hurt. I yanked my finger from his grip. “I wouldn’t want you to if you got down on your knees and begged.”

Blue flames leapt in his eyes, which moved to my lips before locking with mine. “I don’t beg, Freckles.”

“You lost the right to call me that, Valkyrie. And FYI, if I wanted to, I could make you beg.”

He leaned closer, making me catch my breath. He smirked at my reaction. “I could turn the tables on you like that, Freckles.” He snapped his fingers.

I cocked my head. “Oh, is that supposed to scare me?”

“It should. In fact, get your lovely ass back in your car and drive as far away from me as possible.”

I swallowed, feeling reckless. “I’m not afraid of you, Torin St. James.”

He leaned even closer, his breath fanning my face. Memories of our kisses mocked me. I wanted to reach up, grab his face, and force him to remember, make him tremble and breathless.

“Just because I don’t like emotional nightmares with snarky little Mortal girls doesn’t mean I can’t take what I want when I want it and move on without losing sleep over it.”

Thoughts of kissing him disappeared from my head. Snarky little Mortal girls? I wanted to smack him. “You’re a jackass.”

He laughed. “Now we’re getting somewhere.”

“I loathe you.”

“That’s even better. Don’t forget it when you come to my house for lessons,” he added and flashed that smile I’d once thought was sexy, but now made me want to kick him. “I’ll try to make myself scarce, but I’m not promising anything. So try to keep the snarky comments to a minimum. As for the girlish crush you think you have on me, it will pass. They always do.”
 
“It already did at ‘misunderstood’,” I shot back, getting behind the wheel and slamming the car door. He was the most annoying, shits-for-brains guy I’d ever met. Girlish crush? That was the last straw.




REVIEW

I loved reading more about Torin St James and Raine.  Raine is fighting for Torin, for him to remember their love.  But the Norns have other ideas. 

Ednah Walters puts so much into her books.  It leaves you with a feeling of wanting more!  If you enjoyed reading Runes, then you have to continue on with the series!  There's so much love, hate and revenge going on.  And there's a lot that will throw you for a loop.  I had to re-read Immortals, becuase I thought I had missed something!  And then ending, wow, can't tell you how awesome that was!
