N is for Norse and New Adult

NAs a huge fan of Norse mythology and all things Thor especially is he’s got Chris Hemsworth’s biceps, I’m delighted to re-introduce you all to two fabulous books by ST Bende starring some seriously hunkalicious Norse gods.

The Elsker Saga: Elsker

Coming May 29, 2014

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 now for the brand new cover…


But wait! There’s more…

Tur: An Elsker Saga Novella

Coming May 2014

Inga Andersson is the envy of every girl in Asgard. On the surface she has it all —

great friends, a job as Odin’s personal fight choreographer, and a happy ever after

with her realm’s hottest assassin. But when evil invades Asgard, her perfect world

comes crashing down. Someone is planning to kill off the gods, and Inga’s best friend

Ull is first on their list. With the Norse apocalypse a nanosecond away, Inga has to

decide how she’ll spend her final moments of freedom. Because from the moment this

battle begins, Inga’s happily ever after will be nothing more than a memory.

Some things are worth fighting for.



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 McVities cookies. Her love of Scandinavian culture and a very patient Norwegian teacher inspired the books of The Elsker Saga (TUR, ELSKER and ENDRE). She hopes her characters make you smile and that one day, pastries will be considered a health food.

Find ST on Twitter @stbende or her blog (http://stbende.blogspot.com). While you’re at it, introduce yourself to @UllMyhr — when he’s not saving the cosmos from dark elves, he loves meeting new friends. Especially the human kind.
