SHORT-LISTED FOR THE 2019 ROMANTIC NOVELISTS’ ASSOCIATION
SHORTER ROMANTIC NOVEL AWARD
Daughter of a slave…
…wedded to the warrior!
Livia Valeria is furious when she’s ruthlessly gambled away by her intended bridegroom. Luckily, it’s tall, muscled and darkly handsome Roman centurion Marius Varro who wins her as his bride! She must hide her Caledonian roots, but when Marius faces a barbarian rebellion at Hadrian’s Wall, Livia must make a choice: her heritage or the husband she’s falling for…
‘A historically accurate, sensual and evocative romance […] The story is wonderful in-depth, an emotional roller-coaster ride through Roman Britain that will keep the reader turning the page. The descriptions of life during the time, especially once Livia and Marius reach Hadrian’s wall is astounding, it is rich in history and the scenery is so vivid and real […] A mesmerising romance’ – Chicks, Rogues and Scandals
