Part of a band of Viking warriors cursed by an evil sorceress, Torvald has searched for years for a magic that can free him from his fate—to live forever as a were-creature, a man by night, a stallion by day. While studying with the alchemist to Queen Elizabeth, Torvald meets the lovely widow Josian Delamere and hopes she might be the one woman who can save him.
Unwilling to give up the independence of her widowhood, Josian expects to become merely lovers, but Torvald's tender seductions make her yearn for more. Just as she’s poised to surrender her heart, a hidden enemy reveals Torvald’s secret to her—and she flees the dark magic that surrounds him, in fear for her very soul.
The proud warrior can win any battle, but he cannot surmount the pain of losing Josian. Yet when her life is threatened, he will risk it all to come to the defense of the one woman who means more to him than his own salvation.
Immortal Defender wasn't bad at all, the low rating is actually mostly my fault. I have not read this entire series and was lacking in previous history and backstory however when I spotted the book I was hoping for an easy slide in. Unfortunately it wasn't as easy as I'd hoped and wound up being a loss simply because I just didn't get it.
I liked some of the cast but uh the animal shifting didn't quite come across as well as I was hoping.
I definitely need to start from the first book in this series to hopefully change my thoughts on this book the next time around.
