Tempered Steel

Vikings of Honor, Book 4
Gustaf Ræliksen lives by the blade of his sword. After avenging his father's murder and reuniting with his family, he wants nothing more than to settle down and have sons of his own. Only one woman will do—a beautiful redheaded thrall he saved from the spoils of war.

Free from slavery and those who kept her captive, Æsa has nothing to offer the noble warrior except her heart. But when someone with a deep score to settle seeks revenge and the whereabouts of buried silver that only Æsa knows, she must break Gustaf's heart in order to spare his life.

Gustaf’s world is torn asunder, and he has but one vow—saving the woman he loves from the dangerous rival who will stop at nothing to have it all.

Night Owl Reviews, 5 Stars TOP PICK

"A beautifully written story, infused with passion, surprising plot twists, Ireland, an adrenaline-charged plot, humor, and romance. She brings both past and present vividly to life in a way that only she can. This series has definitely made me a fan of Renee Vincent’s works and is the reason that her books are now on my ‘must read’ list. This series has become my all-time favorite. Do yourself a favor and do not miss it!"

"FAN-FREAKING-TASTIC!" This story deserves so much more than just a 5 star rating, in my opinion. Renee Vincent weaves a tale of everlasting love that transcends the boundaries of time, adding just the right twists and turns to keep you guessing. It's the perfect ending, wrapping the entire series up into one perfect package. I'm honestly sad that it's over. I'm eagerly awaiting to see what literary gem Vincent has in store for us next."
