Nordic Bound ($13.95/186 pages/ISBN: 978-1-60381-554-3) is the third book in the Nordic Lights erotic romance series, which began with Naughty in Norway and continued with Nordic Lessons. All three books are set in Norway and center around a motorcycle club called the Devil’s Wrath. Each story features a different couple, with cameos of characters from earlier books.

In Nordic Bound, a young girl menaced by a neo-Nazi group finds a champion in the man she was forced to rob.

Can the man who shot her protect her from the monster who hunts her? Ingvild would do anything to keep her little brother Kjetil out of trouble, even if that means committing a serious crime. The sinister leader of a Neo-Nazi group called the Norsemen asks her to steal for him in exchange for clearing her brother from his heavy gambling debt. She agrees, not realizing the chaos her act has just unleashed and the violent repercussions that will follow.

A biker with an iron will. A solitary Dom, Aksel prefers building custom furniture in his remote home to embracing the wild-biker lifestyle of his close friends. One night he tangles with a stunning thief who has managed to steal a priceless artifact owned by his family for generations. Acting on instinct, he shoots the woman, only to watch her flee into the arctic night with his most valued possession. Everything comes full circle when his best friend Mikkel, the leader of the Devil’s Wrath MC, mentions a mysterious woman injured by a rifle shot. Once Aksel gets his hands on her, there is no turning back, for Ingvild is a more precious prize than any artifact. Even if he can win her love, will this strong-willed woman be open to the world of bondage and submission?

Says Christine, “Nordic Bound offers several key elements found in previous Nordic Lights books, such as alpha-male bikers and stunning geographical settings, but with this book I added a tantalizing twist. I thought it would be fun to delve deeper into the BDSM aspect of the storyline by having the main characters visit a Madrid-based BDSM club called ‘Sangre.’ In addition, the lead hero, Aksel, is a custom furniture designer who specializes in distinctive leather and wooden BDSM pieces for his ultra-discreet clients. If your interest is piqued by bikers and bondage, I hope you’ll add Nordic Bound to your summer reading list.”

“Look at me, Ingvild.”

Her eyes lift to connect with mine. They are filled with sadness, and their arresting light-green color reminds me of spring leaves with sunlight dancing across them. I mentally shake off the pleasant image and continue, “Tell me where I can find what you took from me and I’ll leave you alone for good. You have my word.”

She furtively glances around and shakes her head, leaning in to whisper, “Listen, these are bad, horrible men. Trust me, from the look of your house, you’re a wealthy, smart guy. I’m sure that you have the money to replace that mask, but these men are killers. I know you’re angry but you need to let it go. No piece of art is worth a bloodbath.”

My vision blurs, clouded by unfiltered rage, and I have to mentally count backward from ten to get a grip before grinding out through my teeth, “It isn’t fucking ‘Art,’ girl. It is a piece of irreplaceable history that belongs to my family, and you took it upon yourself to steal it from right beneath my roof. Now your little ass is going to help me get it back. There’s no need to respond because I’m telling you a fact, not asking a question.”

She looks like she might pass out when suddenly a female voice crackles loudly from the walkie-talkie on her hip, slicing through the heady tension, “Ingvild, could you please assist on register three?”

She tries to skirt past me, saying quickly, “I have to work now.”

I step right and block her way. “When do you finish?”

“In one hour.”

“Fine. I’m parked right out front. Come to the black truck when you’re through, and don’t even think of playing games with me, because you won’t win.”

Nervously she says, “I’ll talk to you, but only if you promise not to hurt me again, and once I tell you what I know, you have to swear to leave me alone.”

She might as well have stabbed me in the gut with a rusty spike with that one. For a Dominant, the absolute worst thing in the world is to be accused of ‘hurting’ a woman for the sake of pain. No, pleasure and rewards follow punishment and all of it is craved intently by the submissive. To harm a woman, to severely injure her as I did this one, is not only unthinkable but not even on a genuine Dominant’s spectrum. That twisted shit is for the sadists. For the first time I’m feeling the crushing weight of regret from taking that shot. She most likely has nightmares about being hunted down.
