    The second hot Ancient Britannia romance is a superb tale

    Druid priestess Morwyn watched in horror when all she believed in died with the successful Roman invasion of Britain. Angry at her failed Goddess, Morwyn takes a vow of celibacy while also seeking to free her people from the ruthless legion.

    She masquerades as a trader trying to reach Cymru and her fellow Britons hiding while regrouping in plans for a counter insurgency. However, a Roman unit catches her and abuses her until their leader Brennus ends their assault. He claims the Celt as his. As they travel together, they fall in love. Her visions say he is the man she seeks to save her people, but Morwyn distrusts anything sent by the Goddess. She flees to where her king is only to find Brennus beat her there; as he reveals he is not a Roman but an undercover Gaul loyal to her monarch.

    The second hot Ancient Britannia romance is a superb tale as the Druid priestess knows her abstinence pledge is being tested by her meeting the "Roman". The story line is filled with action yet also insures the audience will feel caught in the conflict in AD 50, seven years after the invasion. Each of the lead couple struggles with an attraction that has come at the wrong time in the wrong place, and further complicated by purposely misleading omissions. Readers will want more historical thrillers like Captive and Forbidden from Christina Phillips.

    Great book, I highly recommend! Perfectly strong hero and heroine with a nice blend of damsel in distress and damsel in control.

    GREAT READ - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

    Christina Phillips latest novel, Captive (a Forbidden Novel) takes place in AD 50 at a time when the Romans were conquering all surrounding lands. This story takes place in Cymru, an island off the coast of Britain, where the Romans have killed and raped to overtake lands rich in minerals of gold, copper and lead. Lead by the Druids, the people of Cymru rebel and then flee to the Isle of Mon to recoup their strength and develop a plan to attack the Romans again.
    One of the Druids is a priestess named Morwyn who is disillusioned by the Druids and wants to join the rebels to fight for her country. Another reason is the loss of her lover who was killed by the Romans. She decides to travel to Camulodunon, where her closest friend, Carys, now lives to try to persude her to join the rebels. She travels with traders along their route but are attacked by Roman soldiers who kill everyone but Morwyn. She is to be used for their pleasure and then killed.
    Brennus is a loyal Briton soldier who is fighting undercover in the Roman army to gather valuable information that might possibly save Cymru from destruction. He accidentally comes upon the scene of the trader's murders and saves Morwyn from the brutality of the Roman soldiers. He does not believe in rape and torture and displeases his Roman army brothers by taking her under his protection.
    Morwyn hates Bren even though he has saved her; she believes he will keep her for himself and rape her when they are alone. She fights him every step of the way, both physically and verbally. Through it all, Bren tries to keep a calm reserve understanding her behavior quite well. He also starts to lust after Morwyn admiring her strength and passion. But he will not force himself on her.
    Not knowing what to do with Morwyn, Bren decides to take her to Camulodunon. Along the long ride on horseback, Morwyn starts to develop a lust for Bren as well. His strength, reserve and kindness, as well as his bright green eyes, sets well with Morwyn but she hates him for who he is and will not give in to her desires. She fights every attempt of kindness that Bren offers and makes life miserable for both of them. After a horrible nightmare about her lover's death, Bren comforts her and they both give in to their longing for each other. Bren is happy about this, as he is becoming more and more enthralled with Morwyn, but she hates him even more now. Her guilt is overwhelming.
    Captive is a very fast paced story of love and betrayal, of passions and desires and how secrets can destroy everything is its path. Bren and Morwyn are so real that the reader can feel their passion and their pain. We want them both to reveal their secrets in the hopes of ending this pain but it is not always the case. Ms. Phillips has a lot of twists and turns in her story which adds even more to the desire to keep reading until we reach the last page.
