Jace Berisha hat es wirklich nicht leicht – zumal ihr Mann sie ... nun ja, ermordet hat. Doch nun kämpft Jace für die mächtigen Götter der Wikinger, Seite an Seite mit den gefährlichen Crows. Schnell geht es jedoch für sie bergab, als eine rachsüchtige Göttin auftaucht und nur eins will – den Weltuntergang. Die einzige mögliche Lösung ist, sich mit ihren Feinden zu verbünden, den Protektoren. Ein Wikinger-Klan, dessen einziges es Ziel ist, Crows zu vernichten. Glücklicherweise ist Protektor Ski Eriksen ein friedliebender Kerl. Denn die Frau, die er begehrt, ist ausgerechnet die schöne und unnahbare Jace. Doch nichts kann einen wahren Wikinger davon abhalten, das zu bekommen, was er will!
"Laurenston is the queen of paranormal romances that mix over-the-top humor, eccentric characters and sexy, crazy plots to produce addictive stories you won't want to put down." --RT Book Reviews No one would ever accuse Jace Berisha of having an easy life--considering her husband…you know…killed her. But that was then! Now she fights for mighty Viking gods with the spectacular and vicious Crows. But things are turning very bad, very quickly because a vengeful, ancient goddess has come into the world with just one thing on her mind--ending it. And the only way they can hope to stop her is if the Crows join forces with their one-time enemies, the Protectors. A Viking Clan created to do nothing but kill every Crow they see. Thankfully, Protector Ski Eriksen is a peace loving kind of guy. Because the woman he is desperately trying to get close to is the beautiful and not-very-chatty Jace. Battling Nordic clans? Unkillable goddesses? Jace's mean-spirited dog? None of these things would ever get in the way of a true Viking! “If you enjoy outrageous scenarios, witty banter, and hilariously over-the-top characters, look no further than Shelly Laurenston’s Call of Crows series.”—SmexyBooks, Best Books of the Year
For fans of A Man Called Ove and the novels of Adriana Trigiani, a charming, delightfully sexy, and bighearted novel starring Auntie Poldi, Sicily’s newest amateur sleuth An Auntie Poldi Adventure On her sixtieth birthday, Auntie Poldi retires to Sicily, intending to while away the rest of her days with good wine, a view of the sea, and few visitors. But Sicily isn’t quite the tranquil island she thought it would be, and something always seems to get in the way of her relaxation. When her handsome young handyman goes missing—and is discovered murdered—she can’t help but ask questions. Soon there’s an investigation, a smoldering police inspector, a romantic entanglement, one false lead after another, a rooftop showdown, and finally, of course, Poldi herself, slightly tousled but still perfectly poised. This “masterly treat” (Times Literary Supplement) will transport you to the rocky shores of Torre Archirafi, to a Sicily full of quirky characters, scorching days, and velvety nights, alongside a protagonist who’s as fiery as the Sicilian sun.
After being stabbed in an alley, former Marine Kera Watson is brought back from death by a supernatural warrior and transformed into one of the Crows, a group of women assassins loyal to a Norse goddess.

Concepts include: deriving triad pairs from the most used chord-scales, determining the best pairs for various chords and progressions, practice patterns for mastery, and exploring linear possibilities. Recommended for intermediate to advanced players as an expansion of the chord-scale approach.
“When it comes to combining offbeat humor and mayhem, it is tough to beat Laurenston.” –RT Book Review “If you enjoy outrageous scenarios, witty banter, and hilariously over-the-top characters, look no further than Shelly Laurenston’s Call of Crows series.” —SmexyBooks, Best Books of the Year Stieg Engstrom, Angriest Viking Ever, has got big problems. The human Viking Clans of earth are in danger of being obliterated—along with the rest of the world—and the only one who may be able to save them is a super pain-in-the-ass Crow. Most people annoy Stieg, but this is the one woman he really can’t stand… Erin Amsel loves being a Crow! Why wouldn’t she when the other Viking Clans are so hilariously arrogant and humorless? She’s not about to let all that come to an end! She just didn’t expect to be shoulder to shoulder in battle with Stieg. Then again, he’s so easy to torment—and also kind of cute. With the future of the world riding on them, Stieg knows he’ll have to put aside his desperate need to kiss the smirk right off Erin’s face. Wait. What? He didn’t mean that—did he? No! They have one goal: To conquer the idiots. Because nothing bugs Stieg more than when idiots win. If only he can keep himself from suddenly acting like one…
