When Lady Valeria Augusta Marianus is captured by the savage Pict army, she is fearful of her treatment by their renowned and fearless commander. His enemy is the Roman Empire and she is the Cesar’s niece, but Tristan Caileanach is nothing like the wild beast she imagined. Instead his ruggedly handsome face and toned body makes her long to be held in his powerful arms. And her traitorous body can only resist the heat of this fierce warrior’s touch for so long…
One night in Tristan’s bed is all it takes for Valeria to give him her innocence and her heart. Yet she knows they have no future together – not when his hatred for all things Roman runs so deep. But when the Roman army descends on the camp and Tristan is enslaved and forced to be a Gladiator, facing death every day, suddenly their roles are reversed.
Now all Valeria wants is to give him back his freedom, but Tristan’s only chance is to win it in the arena…

Was hoping for somthing a little more factual and not so focused on romance aspect but still a great book. Highly recommended. I really liked all the twists and turns the plot took. Under 300 pages.

A story of love and adventure. I recommend this book to anyone who likes to go back in time. I'm looking forward to reading more from this author.
I loved this book! I have always been fascinated by this time period and this book really captured what it was like to be in Rome or to be conquered by Rome. Tristan, Angus. Gaius and Valeria were amazing characters! Valeria was a strong but caring girl caught in the wrong time it would seem. Tristan had lost so much to Rome but was such a good man that he found a way to love again. Gaius is a perfect bad guy! Angus is a great sidekick and hunky To boot! And the others of her "family" are wonderful too. And the book is only .99...WOW! Well worth it!
