It’s been a while since we got to see some of Lee’s hot and hunky Berserkers, so I’m really happy to get back to it with Mastered By the Berserkers. This is the latest one in the Berserkers Bride series, which started by taking spaewives from a nunnery. This one runs concurrently with some of the other books (if I am recalling the timeline correctly, I didn’t go back and reread the entire series). (I’m sure someone will correct me if I’m wrong.)
SSo, we are finally getting to Sister Juliet’s story. She was the only one of the nuns to try to protect the young women in their care, and she got taken too. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that she’s a spaewife, just like all the young women under her care are. When they got taken, there were a couple of Berserkers who paid her a lot of attention, Jarl and Fenrir. Any time that they saw that she needed something, that thing would just magically show up where she is. Once they finally got to the Berserkers’ mountain, many of the spaewives, especially the younger girls, live in one long house, under the care of Sister Juliet, who is a devoted Christian and who is deeply devoted to making sure that her young charges are safe, warm, and fed. Meanwhile, she’s hiding the fact that she is starting to feel the things that the other spaewives do.
Jarl and Fenrir know that she is their mate, but they’ve been careful aboout how they go about dealing with her. Their Alphas have made it very clear that the Berserkers aren’t to be just grabbing any spaewife that they want, it has to be the woman’s choice, and if things don’t happen that way, there will be hell to pay. So, they’ve been waiting for Sister Juliet, but one night, things come to a head, and they spirit her away. They take her far away to the other side of the mountain where they have built a house for her. Jarl and Fenrir are going to make her theirs now.
Like I said before, Juliet is a devout Christian, I mean, nun, right? Because of that, she has some issues with being with any man, let alone two men. Celibacy is a thing, and it’s a thing that she’s sure that she has to stick to, because she made a vow to her God. I think that she is a very good person. She really wants to stick with her beliefs, but Jarl and Fenrir have made it really obvious that she is their priority and that they really want her. She spends a lot of time really torn over how she feels over everything, and I can understand why she feels that way.
Jarl and Fenrir show just how much they have paid attention to Juliet, and how willing they are to give her what she needs and what she wants. I am really impressed by the measures that they are willing to go to so that Juliet will be happy. I truly approve of that.
I can’t wait for the next one in this series, because the Berserker Saga books were some of the first books I read when I started getting into indie books and romances back several years ago now. When I was a young tween, I read romance a lot. Harlequin was my friend, but I pulled away from that for a while, but now I mix romance in with all my other reading, in case you haven’t noticed, LOL.
I do think that the Alphas are just a teeny tiny hypocritical in this, and I’m glad that they get called on it, because they really should’ve been.
OK, that’s all for this one. Go check out all these books, they are so awesome. Happy reading!
