Book Description

Julia Livia Rufa is horrified when barbarians invade Rome and steal everything in sight.

But she doesn't expect to be among the taken! As Wulfric's woman, she's ordered to keep house for the uncivilized marauders. Soon, though, Julia realizes that she's more free as a slave than she ever was as a sheltered Roman virgin.

It would be all too easy to succumb to Wulfric's quiet strength, and Julia wants him more than she's ever wanted anything. But Wulfric could one day be king, and Julia is a Roman slave. What future can there be for two people from such different worlds?

4.0 out of 5 stars Amazing book! 19 Mar. 2010
By Maria
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I couldn't put this book down!

Julia is a sheltered Roman woman who gets captured by Wulfric, a barbarian warrior invading Rome. She is taken as a slave and she has to learn how to cook and clean, things she has never had to do herself. She's planning to escape the first chance she gets but slowly she starts to realize how she has actually more freedom as a barbarian slave than Roman woman.

Soon she falls in love with Wulfric who has feelings for her also but being a warrior doesn't recognise it. But what future there can be for them as she is a slave and he the future king of he's people!

I absolutely loved this book! It wasn't too cheesy either which made it a lot more interesting to read, it's all about the love story but not overloaded with it.
I will definatly be reading this book again!

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't judge this book by its cover (or name) 2 Jan. 2013
By shelf
Format:Kindle Edition
The book is set during the Roman Empire and features a Roman heroine and a German/Visigoth hero (a Germanic tribe that invaded Rome a couple thousand years ago that I'd never actually heard of before this book). Interesting change from the cookie cutter historical's around now. I particularly enjoyed the forbidden aspect to it i.e. the fact that the were two people from different cultures falling in love which back then would have been something very taboo I'm guessing.

The hero, Wulfric, is a rare find in romance novels these days - an alpha but a fair, reasonable one as a leader to his followers, calm-headed but passionate when the time calls for it (i.e. with the heroine). The heroine, Julia, was also a pleasant change - she managed to be that kind if vulnerable damsel in distress heroines that seem to have been replaced by bold and bolshy ones in current romances but she had a back-bone and gave a good tongue lashing when the time called for it.

I would recommend this for anyone who enjoyed the old-school romances of the 80s/90s (except, naturally, these characters are a bit more PC).

This historical novel is right up there with Kathleen Woodiwiess's Wolf and the Dove, in other words, a book that will be constantly re-read. I think it deserves much better than the cheesy cover and awful title because it's honestly one of the better romances I've read and I've read a lot.

5.0 out of 5 stars A FABULOUS READ 14 Nov. 2012
Format:Paperback
This is a fabulous historical romance! I found it hard to put down!
The story is set during the time of the Roman Empire when the Goths invaded Rome from the north to take what was owed them after the Romans reneged on a pact.
Julia, a Roman maiden is taken. She learns that being Roman doesn't equate with being honest and noble and that those referred to as barbarians are anything but.
The love story between Julia and Wulfric, a contender for the barbarian kingship, is so fabulous, tender and endearing. The obstacles, both cultural, political and physical are many and kept ne on the edge of my seat.
All characters, both main and secondary, are wonderful and I enjoyed this book enormously!
