Penny throws her hot but worthless mooch of a boyfriend out on her front lawn with his clothes, and vows never again to be a bum magnet. Exhausted by overwork and mountainous debt, Penny pleads for divine intervention.

Gunnar, a rebellious Nordic warrior cast into servitude by an angry god to learn humility, answers. While Penny sleeps, the celestial arrives to houseclean, but she awakens and confronts him. The handsome immortal kisses her, sparking a passionate, forbidden sexual encounter.

Dark forces seeking vengeance for Gunnar’s past misdeeds mark Penny as a target. To protect his lover, Gunnar tests immortality in a death battle using a god’s magical sword. But the strength of Penny’s love and their lusty connection might be what saves them both.

Being a magnet for hot looking bums is nothing to brag about, at least not in Penny’s opinion. So she resorts to praying for divine intervention. The answer she receives is more than she could have hoped, or even dreamed, for. Tall, blond and decidedly Viking, Gunnar makes up for all the guys that left Penny high and dry. Instead, Gunnar leaves her wet and wanting.

This was a really fun read. Ms. Dubois tapped into several girlish fantasies inside this short novella including going to sleep and being awoken to a smokin’ hot man doing dishes. Honestly, is there anything sexier than a man doing housework? Not if he looks anything like the Nordic warrior turned Light Elf, Gunnar. This non-pointy eared elf has more going for him than just his looks, though. He’s loyal, caring and honest to a fault.

Penny’s history with men has left her a bit shy but there is just something instinctively honorable about Gunnar. Their chemistry is the perfect blend of hot AND steamy.

Ms. Dubois writing style is very easy to read. The premise is clever and unique; I was hooked from just reading the blurb. Also, I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how Ms. Dubois resolves the issue of an immortal loving a mortal. This reviewer will be keeping an eye out for further installments by Ms. Dubois. She has earned herself another loyal reader with Do Me Good.

I have this book but haven't had the chance to read it yet. I think I'm going to have to put Vicki Lewis Thompson aside for a few days! Great review!
