Welcome to the 105th week of My Sexy Saturday.
This week’s theme: My Sexy Boyfriend
Who wants a sexy Viking as a boyfriend?
What was the use? They were trapped. They would die together, but at least she would not have to worry about marrying. The thought of her dying and Bram alive to marry Rebecca made her laugh.
“Nothing. Thinking of what I shall do to my sister if we survive.” She hunched inside the hearth with Bram’s back facing the brunt of the fire. No doubt he wanted to keep the flames from her as long as possible. But the fire chewed at the wooden walls of the kitchen. Through the smoke, she heard shouts, but they sounded so far away. His body pressed closer to hers and she licked her cracked lips.
“Fire rages against us and the thing on your mind is a kiss?” His teeth gleamed white against his soot colored face.
“No, I wonder if I have the strength to push you into the fire for getting us here.”
“Well,” he winked. “’Tis not bad idea if you were thinking of kissing. Mayhap we need more practice if you cannot admit your thoughts freely to me yet.”
She frowned, but already her lips tingled from the thought of his kiss. With a coughed chuckle, he
then leaned his head to her. His lips brushed hers as if she held nectar for him. The thought of death
lingered in her mind so she relaxed into his embrace. After all, if they died she would be forced to marry no one. Her lips opened for him with a sigh. Bravely she soothed her tongue across his. But he did not laugh at her attempts. His tongue danced with hers. Taken aback, she clung to his shoulders. Liquid heat melted her inside and it had nothing to do with the fire crackling around them.
Also, Viking Flame, the prequel to this novel is #free this weekend at Amazon.

Andrea R. Cooper writes fantasy, paranormal, historical and romantic suspense.
Her favorite childhood memories revolved around creating vibrant characters for her friends, and then acting out their adventures. Inside her fantasy worlds of darkened forests, dragon-filled glades, and iced islands, nothing was banned. From the ethereal Elvin to the most maligned Vampires, all were welcome in her fictional realities, a stark contrast to her home, where the magical and mythical was forbidden.
Divorced and disillusioned of love and believing all the love songs and books exaggerated, she put aside her creativity for life. Many years past before characters, from the familiar to the freshly conceived, came to her again, but this time teasing at a new passion, the written word.
Gradually, her real life hero brought love and magic back into existence. During the time when her characters were getting reacquainted, the love of her life was showing her that true love never gives up and rekindles no matter how many times others attempt to extinguish it. Today, she is happily married with three children.
Andrea believes in the power of change and delighting in each moment. But most fervently, she believes in the magic of love and imagination again.
