Publisher's Summary

Does a curse only work if you believe it does?

Chosen to be a priestess from childhood, Athena knows everything about aligning her energy with the universe and spreading hope, healing, and wisdom to people. But her inner balance is disturbed when Finn shows up on her doorstep.

The large, annoyingly flirtatious man kept her imprisoned in the past, and now demands she lift the spell she cast on him. Rather than explain to him that the spell wasn't real, Athena sees her chance of teaching him a lesson in karma and makes demands of her own. Finn will allow her full power over him for five full days or live with the curse forever.

Contains mature themes.

THE SNARKY SEDUCER

I liked the first book in this series so much that i thought i’d give one of the sequels a try, and i chose this one because the two main characters seemed like they’d be particularly interesting---Athena, a beautiful, self-composed priestess/spiritual guide and Finn a good-natured, friendly, (for a Northman) character. However, this book disappointed me and I’m planning to return it because i’ll never listen to it again as the two main characters both behaved like vengeful adolescents for 2/3rds of the book, which was completely out of character with who they were in the first book. Finn, in particular, was relentlessly snarky, cynical and sarcastic---chapter after chapter. Some of that would have been okay but it went on too long and wore down my patience. The last 10 chapters were interesting, after they finally had sex, fell in love, and got down to trying to help Khan and Pearl save the tenuous peace their respective countries had previously established from lapsing into a disastrous war after an earthquake destroys the wall that protects the MotherLand from being invaded by Northmen who would like free license to degrade all the protective measures the MotherLand has created to restore the toxic environment, human and animal rights, and peaceful relations. A big dilemma as these two opposite cultures--the North, inhabited mostly by men and ruled by masculine principles; and the MotherLand, inhabited by more women than men and ruled by nurturing feminine principles---are completely opposite and yet desperately need each other for the survival of the human race. Sound familiar?

Another win

I got introduced to this series by a friend and it has yet to let me down. The story line is compelling even if the government structures make me want to bash my head in a wall sometimes. Finn is an extremely likable guy and Athena tempers him without losing a lot of her own calm and strength.
