She fights them, she falls for him…
An absolutely gripping brand-new historical romance set in Roman Britain
As the Romans advance in their conquest of Britain, valiant centurion Quintus Falerius becomes separated from his legion.
Lost in unfamiliar woods without his horse and gear, Quintus encounters Sena, a feisty warrior of the Dobunni tribe.
Narrowly avoiding a fight to the death, Sena eventually offers to guide Quintus back to his camp in exchange for money. But on the way he becomes fascinated by her wild spirit, so different from the women at home. And beneath the armour, she discovers a gentler side of Rome.
The Romans are building a bathhouse on sacred waters and Sena knows that opposing them will bring her tribe to its knees. Maybe the reasonable Quintus might help them regain access to the sacred springs.
But Sena’s people are suspicious of her dalliance with the invaders and gruff, warring Tatirum, contender for chiefdom, will make his feelings known by forcing her to become his wife.
Will Sena do the right thing and submit or follow her heart and dash all hope of peace?
This is the first book by Lavinia Collins set in Roman Britain but she is the author of several other historical romance titles based on Arthurian legend. Look out for her epic stories about the lives of Arthurian women – Guinevere, Morgan, Morgawse, and Igraine – told from their perspective.
