More About the Author

Louise Allen is the author of over forty historicalromances, published by Harlequin and Mills & Boon.

The Regency is her passion, an endlessly fascinating era full of contrast and change, danger and elegance, luxury and squalor. Women had freedoms that would shock their Victorian granddaughters, yet lived within social codes that both intrigue and appal us now. Men in Society could win fortunes at the turn of a card and lose their lives in the hazard of a duel all in the space of twenty four hours. It is all so different, with the glamour of the past gilding it - and yet the characters seem to reach out and touch us now.

I must say, as a Harlequin, I wasn't so sure about this product. Sometimes they lack depth. Also, this is not your typical Regency or a book with a Scot running around in a kilt. However, the idea of a captured slave to a barbarian (And what a hunky barbarian he is!)in an era many know about but kind of gets put on the back burner, was just too intriguing. There was also the delimma of a spoiled, beautiful aristocrat becoming said slave. Would she have the spirit and courage to stand up to these barbarians?
In fact, these two very different people come to know each other, and themselves, delightfully. Mrs. Allen's characters are alive with strength, courage, flaws and deep emotion. The heroine is not your typical chin jutting heroine, but a delightfully real combination of vulnerability and strength. The hero is not typical, either, but a strong, fierce warrior who does things that are so typically male and so sensative, one is amazed, yet laughs out loud. Funny and full of excitement, as well as historical facts my World History teacher would have been proud of my learning (even if it wasn't in a text book) I would recommend this book to anyone! Boo-yah! Mrs. Allen!

I was pleasantly surprised in how much I enjoyed this book. I agree with the other reviewers that this is a nice change of pace for historical romance. The settings, characters and plot were refreshing. There were no (or very little) silly misunderstandings or outlandish stubbornness you come to expect from historical romance. I also liked that there was another female character challenging the lead female protagonist for the gorgeous hero. It was an added twist and a realistic situation. The quick ending was a little predictable, but definitely worth a read.

I was utterly amazed as to how much I like this story. The title is sooo stupid, but the plot, the characters...wow, they were so good. I love both the heroine and the hero. One thing I appreciated is that there were few misunderstandings. This couple actually talked to each other. You have to warm into the story, but by the 4th chapter,the story is already moving. Good and funny read.

Must say, It was like eating stale chocolate this one, but that's how I seem to find a lot of the Harlequins. It lacked something. Maybe it was tension, edge to the characters or depth. Wulfric was too good. Bordering boring. I liked his squire better, he developed more through the story. The whole master/slave thing can be very interesting to play with but it was never fully explored in my opinion. If I find myself wanting to rewrite many passages in a book to make it interesting I find it was a waste of money.

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

This was a pretty average romance - the privilaged Julia, the main character who is from a Roman family, refusing to admit her feelings for her Barbarian captor but eventually giving in, was not particularly original. But I LOVED the setting of the ancient Roman Empire. So many historicals these days are set in 1800s England and it's getting old. So if you love a romance with a unique setting I'd reccomend giving this book a try because even though the plot is not that original the setting definitley is/

I've never read a romance based in Rome before and found it refreshing. the characters were well written and easy to fall in love with. i enjoy novels were the heroin falls for the bad guy(who isn't really all that bad).

the women are strong minded and not "ninnies" to use the British term. i felt more of as connection with the female lead as she was strong willed and followed her heart even though it wasn't the easy choice! The ending was well concluded and heartfelt!

Overall i definitely recommend this book to any romantic!
