So, let's talk about the books and showcase some rockin' Cover Art! (also there's a giveaway WOOO!)
The Elsker Saga #0.5
by ST Bende
Inga Andersson is the envy of every girl in Asgard. She’s a fight choreographer for Odin’s army, she’s in love with one of Asgard’s top assassins, and her best friend is Ull, the uber-reserved and ridiculously good-looking God of Winter. But being a goddess is anything but easy. Inga would rather use her sword to fight than to teach, and Ull’s been perfectly exasperating since he found out he’s fated to love a human. Now Asgard is under attack from Dark Elves, the Norse apocalypse is a nanosecond away, and Inga’s about to be kidnapped by a giant. Again. There might never be a better time for a vacation, but where can a trio of Norse gods go to get away?
The Elsker Saga #1
by ST Bende
You don’t win the heart of an immortal assassin without making a few enemies along the way.
Kristia Tostenson prefers Earl Grey to Grey Goose and book clubs to nightclubs, but when she transfers from her one-stoplight town to Cardiff University in Wales she falls in love with Ull Myhr. Her new boyfriend isn’t exactly what she was expecting. He’s an honest to goodness Norse God - an immortal assassin fated to die at Ragnarok, the battle destined to destroy Asgard and Earth. Kristia’s crazy visions are the only thing that can save their realms. Her orderly life just got very messy.
And finally, a little bit about the fabulous S.T. Bende herself:
Before finding domestic bliss in suburbia, ST Bende lived in Manhattan Beach (became overly fond of Peet’s Coffee) and Europe… where she became overly fond of the musical Cats. Her love of Scandinavian culture and a very patient Norwegian teacher inspired the ELSKER series. She hopes her characters make you smile and that one day pastries will be considered a health food.

*Not to mention the fact that S.T. is pretty much one of the nicest and kindest of author-folk out there.
