Publisher's Summary

Highborn and privileged, Valeria has never known life outside her father's Roman fortress. But when Hadrian's Wall falls, Valeria's world shatters.

Ripped from her bed, she's captured by savages. Terrified, she prays her betrothed will mount a rescue. But it is the enemy, a Pict with Celtic tattoos and hair of fire who wields his sword and fights for her freedom.

When she seeks refuge in the warrior's stronghold, the Picts eye her with distrust and force her to earn her keep as a commoner. But the longer Valeria remains, the more agonizing it becomes to conceal her burning love for the Celtic warrior.

Contains mature themes.

Terrible story. Average narration. Not good enough to be on Audible.

Where to begin? This story is supposed to occur in ancient times during the Roman occupation of Britain, but the storyline is crippled by glaring historical inconsistencies. A quick superficial Wikipedia search reveals:

Roman occupation of Britain was from AD 43 to AD 410. Christianity wasn’t the official state religion of Rome until AD 391. The term “Pict” was invented by Roman writers around 297 CE to refer to the different tribes of northern Britain. There was no tribe called the “Picts.” Side-saddles weren’t invented until the late 14th century. The term “milady” wasn’t used in antiquity.

I have listed above a tiny fraction of the inconsistencies throughout this work of fiction. The entire plot collapses under the weight of so many things that could not have existed at the same time. The author insults readers with this junk, and Audible does great damage to any expectations of quality by including this title.

Love conquers all!

This was such a fascinating story. What an imagination this author has. The descriptive details and the story line are incredible. The trials the two main characters went through was exhilarating and captivating. Strong, well developed secondary characters as well.
This was the wrong story for narrator Shiloh Grey.
She did not do the story justice and in fact was a terrible distraction. Her voice would do well with Regency stories, something dainty. If you can set her narrating to the back of your mind, you will enjoy this most fascinating story. I would still get this book & ignore the narrator’s voice. It’s really quite a story & well worth getting.

oh dear should have listened to the preview

I love this Author and have most of her books on audible, this story sounded perfect. the narrator who I have heard before and was usually good but, completely wrong, for the girl but atrocious Scottish accent and sounded ridiculous with the mens voices. sorry. I could have returned but as I said I love this area. so I suffered.
