I was pulled in by the setting of a period of history rarely written about, and even more rarely used for romance. This is, in my opinion, the strongest of the 3 novels of this time period, though, the heroine seemed a bit too 'naive' and couldn't see what was right in front of her. The hero, a reluctant one for the heroine, has a nice balance of the 'good' and 'bad' aspects of the time, the commonly held gender identities and being forced to serve an army that was portrayed as not all black and white, as well. There are no 'simple' solutions in this book, because that time period was anything but simple for the people living in it and the author does a good job showing tht, as well..

I enjoy books that pull me in and stick with me after reading. This series does that. I have all three books and I recommend the book.

I read book three first and then this book, book one. This book is about 700 pages. The book is well-written and full of adventure. The male is strong even when he appears weak. The female lead is stronger than she knows. The romance is good and not vulgar. I did not understand the first marriage. There is lots of suspense and the people are mostly pagans. The story deals with Rome and its aggression.

I had some confusion in the beginning chapters with understanding who was who and how they came to be doing what they were doing. I almost gave up on it, but glad that I didn't, I enjoyed it.

This is a story of love overcoming everything. The ending left me hanging with some unanswered questions, however it held my attention.

So far so good. The author pulls you in with the characters. Can't wait to read the books in the rest of the series.

I can't believe this book is free... one of the best I've read in a long time.

The main character, Maia, was not likable.  There was too much self-involved inner turmoil and not enough action.

I was excited to purchase this book at a free rate and more excited by the rarely written time period. But what annoyed me was the fact that the communications between the man and woman were a bit unbelievable for a woman of that time in history. Brothers and sisters were commonly married off to each other then. So this book started out plausible with plausible phrases being used between men and women. But , the author didn't stick to plausible. By the end , I felt like I was listening to a bunch of teenagers in the here and now. The romance was hot without being obscene. I felt as if the author portrayed true love between characters very very well. It is definitely historically correct but lacks a lot of action. At times this book drags. It could have ended 25 pages before it did. However, even though I got a wee bit bored here and there and communication between characters was laughable, I am giving this book four stars and highly recommending it to any younger or newbies to historical fiction, as it Is a fairly good book and almost any other authors wouldn't dare to even attempt this time frame. Kudos to the author on this time frame in history. Also, a big thank you to the author and B&N for the free book. Might read more by this author.

Encouraged from the beginning. Some good twists and turns but too many twist that never got resolved or they were simply forgot about. Not a book I would read again. Actual rating would be 2.5 There were some dramatic and intense sex scenes. Overall plot was good just failed to deliver in the end for me. Would not discourage anyone from reading to see their opinion as well.

a little disjointed at times because of strange character relationships. could have been much better with more development of character drives and explanations of motives. a little bit of crazy as far as the personalities and ending seemed like the author forgot plot line and just wanted it to be done. overall a decent read if you just go with it.

I didn't really enjoy Maia as a character, but on the whole I didn't mind reading it.
