5 Stars: “If you are jonesing for a new motorcycle club to fall in love with, then look no further than author Christine Edwards’ new release, Nordic Lessons …. Mikkel is definitely ‘book-boyfriend’ worthy. He is everything I crave in my erotic romance reads. He’s rough, but gentle. He’s funny, but serious.

—Kerry’s Review, GoodReads

“If you think bikers are hot, wait until you meet Mikkel. Freaking heck, I was in heaven reading this book. There is not a thing about it that I didn’t like. Mikkel alone makes Nordic Lessons a 5-star read for me, but then Ms. Edwards makes the book a complete reading pleasure with every other element. I adore Elora. She is sweet and after getting over her initial shock of encountering a modern-day warrior, she sees past Mikkel’s exterior to the man within. She is as drawn to him as he is to her. They complement one another beautifully and this makes for some seriously hot sex scenes, especially as Mikkel teaches Elora to tap into her submissive nature. Add to the beauty that is Mikkel, Ms. Edwards includes a great cast of characters – including one uncomfortably realistic bad guy.”  Read more ….

“Christine Edwards always gives me what I want. Bossy, Protective, Possessive and Loyal heroes! Heroines that have just the amount of sass and all the passion for these dominant lovers to make perfect matches every time …. I was holding my breath at times and was so sad when [Nordic Lessons] ended. I am so pleased with this sexy story and eagerly await the next passionate couple from Christine. She never lets us down.”  Read more ….

“This was one hot lush sexy read and although I’m not a lover of the ‘master’ play I couldn’t help but fall for Mikkel. The romance was a fast build up with both quickly realising this was more than a casual thing. The D/s was immediately established and both finding what they had been yearning for.”  Read more ….

“Excuse me while I sit in front of a fan for a few minutes because this book is HOT, HOT, HOT! …. For a quick read it was surprisingly character driven instead of a fast paced hardcore sex kind of book, but it wasn’t a bad thing, in fact I kind of liked getting to know the characters past and present instead of just a crazy wild night of wicked fun. However, you do definitely get your wicked fun here.”  Read more ….

“Scandinavian sex gods! **sigh** Mikkel is the ultimate Alpha Viking. He knows what he wants and doesn’t mince words with telling others what he wants. Elora is just what he’s been waiting for. She’s been yearning for a relationship like this and jumps in, boots and all, in this torrid affair. A well written, fast paced, action packed and sensual story has me certainly looking at this author’s other works. A hot and sexy read.”  Read more ….

“My goodness I love this book, hot alpha male who is not only commanding but also a protector/provider. Wait did I also mention he is a hot Norwegian Motorcycle president, a chivalrous one at that. Elora is funny and witty, but also just as strong as Mikkel is. For a romantic erotica, it is the one of the better ones I have had the pleasure of reading.”  Read more ….

4.5 stars: “This was my introduction to Author Christine Edwards and I am now kicking myself for not finding her sooner ~ she writes my Alphas just the way I like them; gruff, possessive, badass, a little sweet and a whole lot dirty. And her leading ladies are not mindless doormats with no personality which is a huge turn-on for me.”  Read more ….

“The love scenes between Elora and the elusive Mikkel are hot enough to burn  up the sheets.  I really enjoyed both of these characters and to watch as they got to know each other. Mikkel is awesome.  He is alpha but has a sweet side to him. He is gentle but at the same time dominant. Elora is sassy and spirited.   The chemistry was off the charts.”  Read more ….

Elora is a cultivated Londoner visiting her brother in Oslo, Norway. With her brother away on business, she decides to do without his permission and borrow his classic Jaguar to take in the sights. But when she pulls over to the side of the road to take pictures, the car won’t start up again. In a blind panic, Elora has nowhere to turn, until a warrior of a man stops to help her. A massive, handsome hunk of a man, clad head to toe in black leather.

Elora has never encountered anyone like Mikkel. As much as he frightens her, she realizes she is out of options. Then comes the exhilarating journey home on his custom ride, and Elora falls hard for her knight in leather armor, an alpha male eager to teach her the rules of Dom/sub relationships. Mikkel is head of his motorcycle club, and in the days that follow, Elora becomes increasingly entangled in the culture of bondage, bikes, and club rivalries. But how can Elora fully commit to a man whose world might as well exist on another planet?

Says Christine, “Writing this novel got meet thinking about the appeal of the strong heroine and the alpha male. It all comes down to balance. Many of us are drawn like magnets to deliciously dominant alpha males, yet without a leading lady who can stand up to him, the preliminary vibrating tension between them would never hold up. The hero needs that wild spirit to challenge him, to keep things in check so the scale never tips completely in his favor.”

Christine Edwards grew up in the Deep South on Hilton Head Island, SC. At an early age she developed a passion for the arts that led her to earn a bachelor’s degree in Art History from the College of Charleston in South Carolina. Christine has a special place in her heart for reading and writing erotic tales. Her main focus is on loving, multi-faceted relationships involving intense alpha males and feisty heroines. She adores snow skiing, traveling the world, and spending time with her amazing family. Christine currently resides in the sleepy coastal town of Beaufort, SC. Click here to find Christine online.

A surprised gush of breath leaves my lungs as his hands grasp each of my bare, chilled thighs to give a possessive squeeze before he dismounts.

“Enjoy the ride?”

I dismount with his assistance, quickly remove the elastic and sift my fingers through my braid, setting my red hair free once again. With my heart still pounding fiercely like a Japanese Taiko drum, I tell him—and I know I’m gushing—“Yes, there’s such a sense of power being on your motorcycle. Although I have to admit, I’m relieved that you’re the one driving. It seems like it would be far too much power for me to handle between my legs.”

Oh no, oh shit!

I watch his expression change the second the unintended double entendre leaves my lips. His eyes are smoldering, his breathing is more rapid. A perfect mask of male lust stares down at me. He’s absolutely stunning. His huge, hot palm reaches forward to glide through my hair, firmly cupping the back of my bare neck. He leans down several inches, closing any distance between us.

In a thick whisper, he says very slowly, “Oh, I have no doubt you can handle all that power perfectly, Elora.”

Muffled, thumping sounds of rock music engulf us as we become lost in each other’s eyes.

The heady moment is broken when he suddenly lets his eyes slide shut, drags in a deep breath, and changes the subject. “You’re proving to be the ultimate distraction, min skjønne. And I’m not easily influenced. We need to move now, we’re already over an hour late.”

Without another word, he grabs hold of my hand and turns to climb the steep flight of wooden steps. I glance out over the parking lot. Not a space to be had. There must be over a hundred people here.

He stops before the solid black door and turns to face me, his warm fingers threading confidently through mine. “I’m tending bar tonight, Elora, but I’m gonna place you right in my line of sight and introduce you to some quality friends. That work for you babe?”

“That’s fine, Mikkel.”

He lowers his body down farther to whisper against my parted lips, “My girl’s so fucking sweet.”

His girl? Yes, I absolutely adore that.
