BLURB:

Nothing can stop Raine Cooper when she wants something…

Raine finally knows that her gorgeous neighbor, Torin St. James, is a legend straight out of Norse mythology, and that her feelings for him are strong. Torin is crazy about Raine too, breaking the one rule he lives by: Never fall for a mortal. The problem is he no longer remembers her, his memories erased by Norns—Norse destiny deities—to punish her for defying them.

She will make Torin forget his one rule a second time and fall in love with her all over again. 

But she quickly learns that well-laid plans do not work when dealing with deities and supernatural beings. Desperate, Raine makes choices that could not only tear her and Torin further apart, but lead to the destruction of everything and everyone she loves.

EXCERPT:

No, they weren’t going to win. Not when it came to Torin. If I had to remind him of everything we’d done together, every touch, every kiss we’d shared, I was going to make him remember. 

As though he felt my gaze on him, he turned and stared straight at me.

I ducked, the folder slipping from my hand and landing on the wet ground with a dull thud. I squeezed my eyes tight and cringed.

Way to go, Raine. That was the dumbest move ever. How was I going to help him remember anything when I couldn’t even face him?

Acting cowardly wasn’t encoded in my DNA, but what was I supposed to do when I’d thoroughly humiliated myself the last time I saw him? I’d run straight into his arms and kissed him, welcoming him back, thrilled to see him after I thought I’d lost him. I hadn’t noticed his initial reaction, the hesitation, the words that should have warned me that he didn’t remember me. So he had kissed me back, a stranger, a silly Mortal girl throwing herself at him—a Valkyrie.

Oh, the humiliation.

But that was two weeks ago. Now, I had a fail-proof plan to fix him. Two, to be on the safe side. Dad had taught me to always have a back-up plan. By the time I was through with Torin, he’d either remember we were meant to be together or he’d fall in love with me all over again.

Slowly, I stood and peered over the hood of my car.

Our eyes collided, and I winced. He stood on the other end of my car in the cocky pose I’d come to expect from him, backpack slung over one shoulder, hands in the front pockets of his jeans, brilliant blue eyes studying me with a wicked gleam. A zing shot through me. That gleam still had the power to make me weak in the knees.

“Are you hiding from me again, Lorraine Cooper?” he said in a deep, hypnotic voice, and my entire body flushed in response to the sexy timbre. I wanted to savor the feeling forever.

“No. I dropped my folder. See?” I wiped the wetness off the red leather cover. He flashed a sexy grin, and my traitorous heart leaped. I knew the smile too well. It said he knew I was lying, but chose to ignore it. “How do you know my name?”

“Mrs. Rutledge told me.”

I thoroughly disliked that gossipy neighbor, but I forgave her this time. I was still annoyed at her for this morning. She’d crossed herself when she saw me, and then hurried back inside her house as though I was the devil’s spawn. I guessed everyone around town knew about the incident at the meet. I hoped they wouldn’t start a witch-hunt. Being burned at the stake didn’t exactly fit into my future plans.

REVIEW

5 of 5 Immortals

First I have to say that I love Ednah's writing and the more I read from her the more I need from her. She is just simply amazing and Immortals totally blew me away. I mean I just could not put it down because I needed to know what was going to happen. I felt like I was sitting on the edge of a cliff and any minute I was going to fall. I mean I was crazy as crazy can get because Immortals picks right up from Runes. If you read Runes you know the ending was crazy and I cried because I said there is no way in hell Raine can survive this by herself. She will need all her friends to support her and help her because let's face it the wrath of a God is far worse than any punishment man can deliver.

The Gods are just straight out pissed at Raine for what she and Torin did but she is determined to fight back for her and Torin's sake. Raine is a force to be reckoned with and she is determined to right the wrong she did. Although in her eyes loving someone is not wrong and she is not sorry for loving Torin and being with him. What the Gods did to Torin is so wrong but Raine will revive all that was taken from him and he will love her again. Torin is crazy about Raine and no matter what the Gods do to him deep down inside his protective nature will bring back all that he has lost. True love like that can never be taken away because it is in their souls and their souls call to one another.

Raine has no idea that she is very important in the grand scheme of things and the she will have to sacrifice will be nothing for her because she is determined to reverse what she has done to Torin. The Gods will also not go down without a fight and they are determined to get what they want. Raine will have to make choices that have some serious consequences and decisions will be made with a heavy heart but at the end of the day Raine is determined to have her old Torin back.

Will Raine be able to get Torin to love her again? What will the Gods do? This is such a must read series that I need book three like I need air to breathe!
