The year is 2012. Darcy Lewis, a S.H.I.E.L.D. lab assistant (or intern) to astrophysicist Jane Foster, is transferred with her boss to Norway to build a specialized prison cell. Shortly after the prisoner arrives along with the Tesseract, Darcy is accidentally transported from the lab. Suddenly she is a Vinlander--a person from the lands far to the west--in Viking territory torn by warring clans during the late 8th century.
Hurled back in time by the Tesseract, an object she is unable to hold and control let alone understand, Darcy is catapulted into the intrigues of Viking kings, queens, warriors, and Gods that may threaten her life...and steal her heart. For here Loki, the Norse God of Mischief, shows her protection and a love so intense that Darcy becomes a woman torn between wanting to return to her own time where he is a hated enemy and the desire to be with the version of him she loves...and between vastly different versions of her own two irreconcilable lives.

Some days he hated the shield and the costume, hated pretending to be perfectly polite and a shining example of the best and the brightest. Some days he just wanted to be a man. Some days he just wanted.

“Holy shit!” His exclamation was buried under the screech of tires as the truck skidded to a dangerous halt in the middle of the road, just a few inches shy of the car before him.
The reason for the accident, it turned out, was a naked woman who was presently eyeing the crash with caution. She wasn’t entirely naked, but even in this century, Steve knew that people walking around in their unmentionables was not a common occurrence. He stared in open-mouthed shock as she casually walked past the two ill-fated vehicles and approached Steve’s truck.
“Um,” he said when the passenger door opened and she slid in beside him without any explanation.

Darcy is lonely in London, waiting for Jane to come back from Asgard, is still unpaid, and is living off of the small retainer fee that is deposited into Jane's accounts and her perks as a sort-of Stark Industries employee. If she starts touring the labs and making friends while sneaking in for free coffee and food, well, no one has noticed yet, right?
Steve is not lonely, he's too busy to be lonely. But he is possibly struggling to connect, and really frustrated by all this technology stuff. And if he likes having a friend who doesn't know about and tip toe around his past, or expect anything from him? Who could blame him?
Stark Industries London yearns for the days when it was a force to reckoned with, and now it has received its first direct communication from Pepper Potts since December 28th, 2007.

“I am trying to create an intricate storyline about a complex, deeply disturbed anti-hero struggling to make up for killing his own father and you’re telling me they won’t publish my manuscript because Kylo Ren doesn’t have a fucking girlfriend?!”
Hux quirked a single eyebrow, sipping his tea just slowly enough to be a certified dick, and finally explained himself. “Look Ben, this company has been publishing your books for years now, and it’s been a wonderful partnership. There’s no denying that. However… this series is getting stale! You’re ignoring an entire demographic of people who enjoy a little romance in a story! We’ve had producers calling with interest on making your books into movies, but let’s face it… sex sells! Frankly, it’s no wonder Kylo Ren has anger issues considering the dry spell he’s enduring.”
“What the hell do I know about romance, Hux?! You’re asking me to re-write an entire manuscript!”
Armitage Hux only shrugged in response, leaning back in his black, leather chair. It was the perfect body language for ‘that’s not my problem, asshole.’ “You’re a writer, Ben. Do some research.”
