Overview

Book one in a 6 book series.

The Romans had taken Britain and made it their own, but when the Roman Empire collapses on itself, the Roman legions leave the fringes of the Empire and draw back toward the center, to Rome. Leaving Britannia defenseless against the Saxon barbarians.

She was a Roman Briton and she embodied all that Rome stood for. He hated her on sight. She, proudly Roman, fought him with every breath. He burned his way into her life, destroying the world as she knew it, and she vowed to fight him to the death, either hers or his.

He was a Saxon warrior and stood for everything she loathed and feared. He was a beast, an animal...a barbarian. He destroyed her villa by fire and then stayed to torment her, finding joy in her despair, playing out his revenge upon her until he grew bored with his game and decided to kill her.

The hate they felt for each other burned with a fiery blaze, yet when he touched her, she trembled. They felt only hatred burning in their souls...or was it respect, admiration, and even love?

To Burn is the first book I've read that takes place such an ancient setting. I know nothing about the time period, but I was hooked from the very beginning and couldn't go to bed until I finished the book. The battle of wills between Melania and Wulfred was something to watch and revel in. This pair was well-matched from the beginning and I loved Melania's strength of spirit from the beginning until the end.

Seems too technically perfect. Odd how the "barbarian" Saxon thought and spoke. Seemed way too sophisicated- even more so than the cultured Roman lady he tried to smoke out. Cliched and stereotyped characterization and story. Passing on this.

Having read some of Claudia Dain's earlier works, I bought this book as soon as it hit the shelf. I am dissappointed to say that I was unable to finish reading this book. The idea of someone falling in love with the man that murdered her family and enslaved her is not very believable or appealing to me.
