More About the Author
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.

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!
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

Allen is very good at writing a love story, not only with conflict between the two main characters, but historical conflict as well. Read morePublished on November 10, 2013 by ****
