THEY LOVED AT FIRST SIGHT...
Elowyn, step-daughter of a powerful Roman landowner, threw herself between the man on the auction block and his owner's whip. She had never seen anyone so compellingly handsom, and though they called him a barbarian, she thought he was an angel. And to an astonished Hengist, the powerful Angle chieftain who'd been captured and enslaved, the chains he wore were nothing compared to the bonds fated to join his heart forever to this courageous young woman...
...ONLY TO DISCOVER THEY WERE ENEMIES.
But Hengist knew his only hope of escape was to seize the opportunity Elowyn had given him and flee back to England. Yet how could he run from his feelings for Elowyn? And how could he know the one woman he desired above all others would become the greatest threat to his land, his heritage... his very existence...
