Prologue

Britannia in 78AD

The Romans began their invasion of what they had named Britannia in AD43. A few months later the Emperor Claudius arrived and declared that the tribes of Britannia had been defeated but nothing could have been further from the truth.

It took the Romans decades to gain any real control over the island they claimed as their own, but following the annihilation of Caratacus’ army in 51AD and the defeat of Queen Boudicca’s rebellion in 61AD the Romans finally began to feel secure across most of Britannia.

However, in 78AD deep in the mountains of modern day Wales the Romans were still only present in a few forts and a new generation of rebels were beginning to resent the foreigners who were slowly taking over their lands.

angelinatsao: I love this so much 🥺 I wish there was more to this series I would love to read them

grandmadscrafty: This was a quick read, but the story never seemed to drag on. A happy ending without cliff hangers. Once the initial ill fated relationship with her soon to be ex-husband, the new live interest had none of the ups and downs of the standard novel relationships, which was refreshing. No games!
