Kera Watson never expected to face death behind a Los Angeles coffee shop. Not after surviving two tours lugging an M16 around the Middle East. If it wasn't for her hot Viking customer showing up too late to help, nobody would even see her die.
In uncountable years of service to the Allfather Odin, Ludvig "Vig" Rundstrom has never seen anyone kick ass with quite as much style as Kera. He knows one way to save her life—but she might not like it. Signing up with the Crows will get Kera a new set of battle buddies: cackling, gossiping, squabbling, party-hearty women. With wings. So not the Marines.
But Vig can't give up on someone as special as Kera. With a storm of oh-crap magic speeding straight for L.A., survival will depend on combining their strengths: Kera's discipline, Vig's loyalty... and the Crows' sheer love of battle. Boy, are they in trouble.

I spent much of the book trying to get a feel for Kera. She was this tough ex-Marine, except that she...had panic attacks, had difficulty killing and... one of those. I could get the panic attacks bit IF there was mention of PTSS, but no mention was made, nor was there ever given a reason for her le...
This was a group read for the Dangerous Hero Addict Support Group, and I'm glad it got voted for. It gave me that push to read Shelly Laurenston. I've heard from many that she's a good author, and I actually have most of her Dragon books written under G.A. Aiken, but I just hadn't gotten around to r...
This paranormal romance was okay. It had lots of humor and the hero pursuing the relationship was adorable but there were too many characters. The plot was basically describing all the beings and fighting. Ex-marine Kera dies and is brought back to life as a crow-shifter at the request of raven-sh...
