The Current: A Battle of Seduction (Tales of Freya) by Sarah Dahl
Marked from the latest battle, Aldaith wants to recover by a stream. But instead of finding solitude, he stumbles on the fearless shield maiden Nyssa. The fierce beauty invites Aldaith into the water to engage in a very different kind of battle -- one for which his training leaves him unprepared.
This is currently a freebie via Amazon and I was more than happy to give a 3 stars or 6/10.
This is the first in a series of short stories, that can be read as standalone reads. However, Aldaith and Nyssa are to return in another short story.
Due to this being a short story, we don't always get enough character development. The attraction between the battle scarred Aldaith and Nyssa soon developed into a sexual one and the two soon become one.
The erotic part is neither too graphic or gratuitous and helps to move the story on. I look forward to reading more in due course.
