5.0 out of 5 stars Don't judge this book by its cover (or name), 2 Jan 2013

This review is from: Virgin Slave, Barbarian King (Mills & Boon Historical) (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was also a pleasant change - she managed to be that kind if vulnerable damsel in distress heroines that seem to have been replaced by bold and bolshy ones in current romances but she had a back-bone and gave a good tongue lashing when the time called for it.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.
