"Bruised, bloody, and barely dressed, she knew it was over. She had no doubt the Vikings would search for her if she tried to run--especially now, with their companion lying dead. It would be dark soon, and she had no idea where she could go or hide. Jilliand knew they would come for her. The Vikings were not likely to let this go--especially it being an attack by a woman. She was defeated. Weak and shaking, she stared at the man's body. I think tonight I die."
