Welcome back! I have the wonderful Celeste Barclay with me this week with her First Kiss snippet from Book #1 in her Viking Glory series, Leif.
Fate brought them together. Free will binds them.
War is the last thing Leif wants, but he'll do whatever necessary to save the seer who has foretold their destiny--and who has captured his heart.
You'll find my next First Kiss snippet from The Highlander's Pirate Bride on Celeste's blog here: www.celestebarclay.com/blog

Leif forced himself to take several deep breaths lest he maul the woman when she let him in. He heard objects being moved away from the door before she lifted the bar and the bolt slid back to its home. She pulled the door open and peered out. Leif saw the knife in her hand. She dropped it when she knew he was alone and threw open the door wide then stepped back. His intention not to maul her fell away the moment he could reach her. He pulled her into his arms, and he felt her come willingly. She wrapped her arms around his neck as he lifted her off her feet. Their mouths came together with a hunger born of fear and longing. The kiss was not gentle but fed a simmer that had started for Sigrid long before it did for Leif.

After months at sea, Leif Ivarrson wants nothing more than to revel in the comforts of home. Yet when word arrives that a new threat has invaded their land, Leif is forced to take up his sword once more. Tasked with rescuing a jarl’s niece, Sigrid, from this malicious enemy, Leif departs on a journey that will alter the course of his fate.
Since she was a young girl, Sigrid Torbensdóttir’s visions have been both a blessing and a curse. Now a grown woman and powerful seer, she knew enemies would come for her, eager to exploit her gift. Yet her visions taught her that fate could not be denied or ignored. As she had foreseen it, the heroic Viking would save her and sweep them both up in the raging storm of inescapable destiny.
Drawn together by the will of the gods, Leif and Sigrid battle to save their people from a rival tribe’s scramble for power. Will their blossoming love survive the tests of war and family? Can a match created by fate withstand the machinations of man?

Thank you! I loved writing this story. It's the only one that I've done that has some slightly paranormal elements since Sigrid has the gift of second sight. She knew Leif would save her.

Terrific scene, Celeste! It must be difficult to be able to have 'the sight'. So much personal turmoil.
