Editorial Reviews

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?

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.

As other reviewers have already said, I loved the different setting and time period. I also loved the H and h, they were well written and appropriate for the time period I think. I hated the fact that right from the start of their intimate relationship there was always the sense that it was temporary and that the H would marry for political advantage. I'm convinced that it was the way of things in those times but I always like commitment when the main characters become intimate. t's not a favourite plot line for me that the other woman was waiting in the wings and was so jealous of the h. I totally didn't enjoy it when the other woman and the h had a physical fight over the h being a whore and having some jewellery from the H. This lack of commitment and uncertainty went on for way too long into the book. The ending was really good and made up for a lot though.

There is erotic and there is raped. You can't even argue forced consent with this short story. Sorry, not my cup of tea.

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
