Blurb – Diana by the Moon
He is Arthur’s man. His duty is his life. She fears and mistrusts him. The only way they will survive is to work together.
Britain, 469 A.D.: Shortly after the Roman legions returned to Rome, leaving Britain open to Saxon attacks, Diana's abusive parents die during a Saxon raid on their villa farm, the same day her brother takes most of the male slaves and servants to join the rebel Celt, Arthur.
Diana, who no longer trusts anyone, must find a way for the women in her household to survive after the enemy has stolen everything. They struggle to eke out a living from the meager provisions remaining.
Alaric, proud Celtic warrior and trusted lieutenant to the upstart British leader, Arthur, has been sent by him to establish and maintain a line of signal beacons — one of which must be built on a strategic hill on Diana's property.
His mission is critical to the security of Britain. Alaric must overcome his hatred of Romans if he is to fulfill Arthur’s ambitions in the north. He forces Diana to agree in return for the protection of Alaric and his men. Diana is pulled into a deadly political net, when Roman British enemies, including the Bishop of Eboracum, take exception to her new Celtic allies.
A haunting tale of two lives touched by the coming of King Arthur, and two hearts and souls struggling to come together against odds as great as those against Britain itself. Only together will they survive, or else be sundered…forever.
The first book in the Jewels of Tomorrow series is an enthralling romantic suspense that captures the imagination with a fantastic mix of historical and mythological imagery.
Diana is struggling to keep her people alive after the enemy kills her family and steals everything from them which leaves her trusting no one. Alaric is a trusted lieutenant in Arthur’s army who must overcome his hatred of Romans if he is to fulfill Arthur’s ambitions in the north. When he’s needs access to Diana’s strategic hill for Arthur’s plan, he forces her to agree in exchange for protection. Alaric’s mission is critical to the security of Britain and when Roman British enemies pull Diana into a deadly political net, they must work together in order to survive.
The plot flows smoothly at a steady to fast pace and is set shortly after the Roman legions returned to Rome leaving Britain vulnerable to Saxon attacks. The author brings the story to live with vivid imagery and realistic details without overwhelming the reader with too much immaterial historical detail. The characters are strong and compelling and are easily related to. The author conveys the emotional turmoil of the characters with an intensity that invokes the reader’s empathy, making them feel as if they are part of the story.
Alaric is one of those male heroes that sometimes you love and sometimes you just want to hit him upside the head. Diana is a courageous character that overcomes a terrible and traumatic past with an admirable strength. Their romance progresses at believable pace with all the obstacles they must overcome.
From the very beginning, I was caught up in this captivating world created by this spell weaving author and she deserves lots of applause for the giving the reader a historical overview of the time period before the story begins which adds depth and helps set the mood for this haunting and moving tale. I found the story to be very entertaining and I will definitely reading more in this series.
