Overview

Where are all the real men? she wondered...

For Lady Diana Davenport, they existed only in her books and dreams. There she could lose herself, becoming the licentious Diana, goddess of the hunt--far from the rigid restraints of eighteenth-century London, where she was courted by fops and fools. That is, until she tried on an authentic Roman helmet in an antiques store and was catapulted back in time, landing in Marcus Magnus's arms. This was no dream! She was lost in Aquae Sulis, the city she knew as Bath, prisoner of a Roman general who accused the violet-eyed beauty of being a Druid spy--and then made her his slave!

"COME TO ME."

His words were soft, imperious, charged with danger and desire. Marcus Magnus was powerful, arrogant, and infuriating. A real man. And now Lady Diana was his slave, hostage to his will, vowing to fight him to the end--with every seductive weapon she possessed....

Virginia Henley is the author of eight romances published by Dell, including the New York Times bestsellers Seduced and Desired.

She divides her time between Ontario, Canada, and St. Petersburg, Florida.


From the Paperback edition.

Immersing herself in the past, Lady Diana browses through an antique shop and finds the helmet of a Roman centurion. When she puts it on, she is transported into the world from which it came, and her first sight of the powerful man who takes Diana as his slave. It could be worse, Diana realizes, she could fall in love with him. Reissue.

    Time Traveling Heroine Meets her Ideal Man

    Redonk Nutshell: Woman is transported back in time to Roman-occupied Britain where she gets lessons in ancient history and passion

    I've recently been on a time-traveling kick. I found myself searching GoodReads for romance books that featured a time-traveling hero or heroine and I came across Enslaved by Virginia Henley. I've not yet read anything by her, though I've come across her name several times in my travels through romance-land.

    Lady Diana Davenport lives in 18th century London and is on the cusp of inheriting her father' s legacy. Her guardians have other plans for the money, and are anxious to make a match for Diana so she can be married off. Diana, however, has other ideas. She's smart and opinionated, and most of the men in her life are dandies. She daydreams about times long past, how knights rode to defend the honor of their ladies, blah blah blah. When Diana comes across an old roman helmet in an antiques shop she can't keep herself from putting it on her head. And WOOSH! She' whisked back through time.

    Figuring the strangely dressed woman as a Druid priestess and spy, Marcus Magnus instructs the woman to be enslaved. When he recognizes her light hair and pale skin as strangely beautiful, he takes her as his personal consort. Diana, once again, has other ideas. But she struggles to keep herself from becoming enraptured with the Roman who has taken charge of her.

    My experience with this book was mixed. I'd say for the first half I was really intrigued and really into it, especially because we get a lot of set-up featuring Diana in her time period. Her guardians are odious people, and Diana's small ways of rebelling against them are lovely. We are also introduced to a blackguard of an earl who sets his sights on Diana, and their exchange are feisty as well.

    When Diana is thrown back in time, we the reader quickly realize that the Roman Marcus Magnus is a distant relative of the aforementioned earl, so identical to a point where Diana can barely see a difference between the two. I found myself wondering if Diana was perhaps experiences a Dorothy Gale moment and wasn't actually transported back in time but rather having a delirious hallucination. But alas, no, she was in fact really back in that time period.

    The parallels between Marcus and Mark Hardwick, the earl, really turned me off. I don't typically dig reincarnation stories, and this one really spoiled that story for me. When Diana is returned to her time she has to convince those around her that she had, in fact, been back in roman times. When Mark starts to remember things is about when my head started to hurt from rolling my eyes so many times.

    There's nothing wrong with a bodice-ripping cheese fest of a romance novel, but I at least like a good hearty story behind it. Unfortunately, Enslaved fell short for me. The first half was fun, spirited and rich, but the second half fell flat with cliched predictability. A plus? It was pretty raunchy to which I say, "ohhhh...those Romans!"

    I have come home!!

    I'm a truly shocked with myself that I totally forgot about this author. Virginia Henley is one of my first romantic authors that I fell in love with and now I know why. I have truly become "Enslaved" with this novel. This book is so refreshing. It is about how love..true love withstands the test of time. Ms. Henley takes the reader from Prince Pinny era to Bath 61AD, Roman Era. When I started this novel I was like how would Ms. Henley make that transistion smoothly but oh she did and believeable to. It's like the reader is watching a play unfold in front of you...the writing is just that good! The romanctic scenes are just that "hot" and the drama keeps the reader on the edge of their seats. The plot so full of twists and turns you will not see coming. If you want a romantic story to transport you back in time then please don't hesitate to purchase this one. I bought it for my nook and I'm definately going to keep this one in my library circulation. I am definately glad I rediscovered Ms. Henley and her books. I definately will be requainting myself with her other novels. Enjoy my fellow readers!

    Haunting love story!!

    This is the first novel I have read by Virginia Henley and I was very impressed. Time travel as a concept is sometimes difficult to convey effectively but Ms. Henley does a first rate job. The twists and turns the plot took left me thinking about this rich love story for days afterword.

    A must for any historical romance novel reader!

    I love historical romances but what I particularily liked about this novel is that it brought me to a time period that is unusual for such novels: the roman empire, it is such an intriguing, inspiring and grandiose time period...even though, as the books shows it, it is a very cruel era. The book was educational and yet wonderfully enjoyable. What makes Virginia Henley such a wonderful writer is that she pays attention to details, you know that she made some research and that she knows what she is talking about. You fall into the story from the beginning of the book. The couple in the novel is amazing, each is a great match for the other. Lady Diana is wicked in an innocent and spirited manner, she shows a great deal of courage and strength in a time period that is not hers. Marcus...well, he is a force of nature, and yet he is what a man should be like, wonderful inside and out. Its pure joy to watch their relationship evolve from strangers to soul mates. It is my all time favorite novel by Virginia Henley.

    A very good book

    You can count on Ms. Henley to write a great Alpha male! I have read a few of Virginia Henley's books and this one is my favorite. I had a hard time with the beginning, though. I kept putting it down but once she got to the time travel Roman period: WOW! Diana and Marcus were great. Their coming together was electricity on paper. I wish more stories took place in that period. However,I couldn't give it 5 stars. The author keeps using the same story device in her villians/conflict resolution; the villian is a jealous male relative who resorts to repulsive or homosexual behavior.

    loved this book

    this book was so good! Diana and Mark are really great characters and the way Ms.Henley takes Diana from Georgian England to Roman occupied England is amazing. I loved Marcuse/Mark he's a great alpha male hero and Diana is a sexy vixen you can't help loving them. I was up the whole night reading it, and this is my 4th time rereading it.

    A MUST HAVE

    <p>Virginia Henley wrote MAGIC with this book. It was absolutely amazing. The words were always fitting, they always had a lot of substance (but not too much to make you want to skip a paragraph). The real history implied within the romance was just wonderful. Anyways. I ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT!!</p> <p>I just finished reading the book today. I started last night. I couldn't put it down for one second! Now I am craving everything that has to do with the Roman Empire (and I must admit I have never even thought of that time before this book).</p> <p>Please don't stop writing the magic, Miss Henley, and thanks for the wonderful hours of love... :)</p>
