Decent prologue, but then went downhill. The plot was too big for the page count & left me annoyed at overly complicated spying and/or confusing reactions to motivational circumstance, so the story managed to drag & jump around simultaneously. Quite a feat, really.

My biggest gripe is that the reasoning behind Dania's decisions doesn't compute, which sets the remainder of the story on wobbling wheels. Dania is also something of a moo; I never understood why she divorced her first husband

When 15-year-old Dana, a native Brigantian, decides to divorce her husband Con of one year, as is her right, her husband's father, the Druid priest blames her for all the misfortune the tribe has had that year and demands she be sacrificed. Dana manages to convince everyone she'd be better off living in Coris (Corbridge) spying on the occupying Romans. She's allowed to go, after being branded with the sign of her tribe lest she forget and become a turncoat. Soon seeing how her weaver's shop beco ...more

This was a good old fashion love story with a deep and mysterious back plot (not really) and a Roman man in love with a tribal woman who runs a brothel but doesn't sleep with the men. I did like this story it was sweet, dangerous and of course the HEA was there. I think the setting was wonderfully and she did an excellent job with the descriptions of the places I felt like I was there. This is a sweet historical romance and reminded me why I love this genre the best. Even when I tend to read par ...more

Old-fashioned romance, with fade-out sex scenes.
British woman is seemingly ostracized by her tribe, and now runs a house of ill repute in a Roman outpost. But she sends the intel she learns from the women sharing the soldiers' beds back home, so the British living near Hadrian's Wall can remain free.
Until Fabian Peregrinus comes to town, preceding a visit by the emperor.
He knows her game, and starts playing one of his own.
Can these two find happiness beyond the political intrigue?

I loved this book, & loved how it not only focused on the romance of the two main characters but the stories of those around them and the setting.

As the author of books on embroidery design, the progression in 1994 from fact to fiction was perhaps less daunting for Juliet than it might have been for a complete beginner. But in many ways, the requirements are similar: a strong imagination and sense of design; an eye for detail; a love of color, scenery, and research; and a willingness to share inner thoughts and feelings with readers.
