The Maiden of the Storm by Michelle Deerwester-Dalrymple
When the power of love is stronger than the chains of bondage . . .
She’s a powerful Scottish Highland Celtic woman. He’s a Roman warrior, captive in her village. When their passion for each other grows, can they find a way to be together?
Or will the conflicts between the Celts and Romans drive them apart?
In the Caledonii village, Riana is the chieftain’s oldest daughter and accustomed to position and authority. Until the day a Roman soldier is brought in and made a slave.
Despite her moral objections, she is directed by her father to tend to the Roman, to bring him back to health and make sure he’s fed.
At first, he’s nothing more than a curiosity for her, but as they spend time together during her duties to him, they forge a camaraderie that quickly becomes something more.
Something passionate and forbidden.
Horatio is a confident Roman soldier brought low after a night of missteps. Bound to slavery for the Caledonii tribe, he spends every waking moment biding his time and planning his escape. What he doesn’t plan is the desire he feels for the very woman directed to keep him in chains.
His desire grows, as does his love for the red northern woman.
As their passions rise, Riana decides that she cannot see the man she loves enslaved. They concoct an escape that is successful on the surface but leads to disastrous results.
When they believe all is lost, their love for each other gives them one final chance for survival. Will their love overcome the obstacles that would tear them apart?
