Forbidden

(2010)
(The first book in the Druid Chronicles series)
A novel by

Between a warrior and a princess comes an all-consuming love that transcends the hatred between their warring worlds...

Determined to do whatever she can to rid her beloved land of the barbarian Romans, Carys, a druid acolyte, defies the order of her High Priest to remain within their safe enclave. She escapes to help her oppressed people, only to be captured by a dangerous, battle-scarred centurion.

Charged by his emperor to eliminate the powerful Druids in Britain, Maximus doesn't expect his mission to be thwarted by the clan's ethereal princess, Carys. Unaware of her true heritage, he's enchanted by her beauty and intrigued by her bravery, and while he wants nothing more than to protect her, he reluctantly releases her.

Shaken by the encounter, Carys can't forget the fearless warrior and is convinced her beloved goddess brought Maximus to her for a reason. Although he's the enemy of her people she can't stay away, but their clandestine assignations threaten more than their lives.

As Carys' loyalties are twisted, and freedom is no longer her single-minded obsession, the avenging High Druid plans to crush Maximus' people into oblivion. With time running out, Carys and Maximus must overcome the devastation of war and face the ultimate sacrifice if their forbidden love is to survive.
