DOWN AND DIRTY
Genre: Paranormal/Urban Fantasy, Time Travel, Paranormal Romance
With a highly unusual premise, a gift for outlandish humor and an abundance of steamy sex scenes, Hill returns with another in her series of time-traveling Vikings and present-day Navy SEALS. Fans of the author's prior novels will enjoy this continuation. New readers may be initially confused, however, as the book doesn't stand completely alone and much of the plot is farfetched.
Navy SEAL Zachary Floyd flees Afghanistan with the 5-year-old son he just found out he had. As the boy's only living parent, Zach feels justified in his decision, despite the resulting problems. One such consequence is Zach's assignment to train women for a new SEAL-like program. He immediately crosses paths with the last woman he expects to find in California or, well, even in this century.
Britta Asadottir, a six-foot-tall Norse lady warrior, has managed to escape her malicious father, a nunnery and the 11th century -- only to appear in Zach's boot camp. She met him once in her own time, and blames him for her latest batch of problems, so their reunion isn't a pleasant one. But Zach is as determined to win her over as she is to resist him.
