She was Gaelle, the chaste Germani priestess forced in the aftermath of revolt to live as a slave in the household of the wealthy and cruel Secundus. He was Cerdic, the magnificent Celtic chieftain bound in defeat to surrender his lands and freedom to a Roman barbarian...
Born to rule, Cerdic escaped death at swordpoint—only to be forced into a life of bondage and servitude. No painful lash could break his will, but a fellow slave as delicate and lovely as a fawn would soon claim his heart...
Gaelle knew her only hope of salvation was to trust this man who awoke dangerous desire. But her destiny forbade their union. Until their master's brutality changed Gaelle and Cerdic's lives forever. Risking death, they fled Rome on a journey that would take them from Italia to the foothills of the Alps and back to Britannia, where another kind of battle would be fought...as one man's conquest became one woman's glorious surrender...
