To ensure peace between her tribe and their savage conquerors, the exquisite Bronwen has been promised in wedlock to a high-born Roman tribune. But the British beauty is also a secret spy ready to risk her life to free her people.
Dispatched to Britain by Mark Antony, Claudius is irresistibly drawn to the flaxen-haired, cobalt-eyed Bronwen. Yet he knows he dare not trust the woman who is bound to him by law – not love.
Award-winning author Doreen Owens Malek recreates the splendor and sweeping panorama of the ancient Roman Empire in this magnificent love story . . . a breathtaking tale of a long-ago time and a woman who loses her heart to a man she must condemn – or turn traitor to save.
