Historical Book Fair Extravaganza!

Welcome to my very first Historical Novelists' 4 Day Book Fair!

I'm an ex-pat Brit now living in sunny Western Australia, and the third book set in my Roman/Druid world, BETRAYED, has just hit the cyber shelves :-)

My historical romances set during the first century have strong heroines who are struggling against all the odds to preserve their way of life so their beliefs don’t vanish into the mists of time, lost forever to future generations. They are about ancient goddesses who will do anything to ensure their names linger on in the minds of their children. And most of all, they are about how love can conquer anything.

In 51 A.D., Druid priestess Nimue is injured and enslaved by the hated Roman Legions. Even though she is drawn to her captor, she’s determined to escape and complete her mission for the Briton king and her duty to Arianrhod, the goddess she is bound to.

The tough Roman warrior who captures her is far from the brutal barbarian she expects. His touch inflames her desires and passion burns between them. Though Nimue does not accept her enslavement, her heart surrenders to her enemy. When Arianrhod appears to her in the form of an owl, Nimue knows the union is blessed.

Roman warrior Tacitus is enchanted by the fiery beauty who shows no fear and challenges him at every turn. Though enslaving her goes against his heart, he’s determined to make her his. No woman has ever heated his blood as she does. But when he discovers her true nature as one who actually communes with the gods, his loyalties are torn between his heritage and a woman who could destroy everything he’s ever believed in.

Thank you for taking part, Christina.

With gods and goddesses taking the stage that's a perfect medium for power struggles and love crossing the boundaries of myth, legend and magic! ;)
