Julia Livia Rufa is horrified when barbarians invade Rome and steal everything in sight. But she doesn't expect to be among the taken. As Wulfric's woman, she's ordered to keep house for the uncivilized marauders. Soon, though, Julia realizes that she's more free as a slave than she ever was as a sheltered Roman virgin.It would be all too easy to succumb to Wulfric's quiet strength, and Julia wants him more than she's ever wanted anything. But Wulfric could one day be king, and Julia is a Roman slave. What future can there be for two people from such different worlds?
Virgin Slave, Barbarian King is the first book that I have read by this author and is a roman historical romance. There are too many books that take place in that time period, so I just had to read this and its was short but a sweet romance that left me wishing it was a bit longer. From the first minute they encounter one another, Wulfric is so good to Julia, even though she is at times a wildcat, which is understandable given the circumstances…but I just fell in love with Wulfric who was very patient yet firm, and who is very loyal to those he cares for. It was such a delight to take the first seat on this adventure and I hope to read more from this author. I loved her style of writing and the way you see Julia and Wulfric connect….definitely worth reading!!! Just loved it!
