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
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.
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?

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.
