Men Were All She Lived For

From the back:

Clement studied Margaret’s uncovered knees through half-closed eyes. Watch it, he told himself. Don’t get any ideas. Remember, she’s Lady Norton now. Not the plain Margaret Dobay you used to know. With a sudden movement she stood up. The negligee parted dramatically down the middle and he stared breathlessly. “Embarrassed?” she asked in a very low voice. Careful! his mind warned him. Not that. Not with the wife of all-powerful Lord Norton! Then the former Margaret Dobay closed her eyes. Her lips parted slightly and she seemed to sway toward him. It was an engraved invitation. What man could turn it down?

The Golden Slave

23686624-4068759265_778724c26f_o[1]

A thundering novel of conquest and vengeance in the barbaric days of the First Century B.C.

From the back:

100 B.C.

The Cimbrian hordes galloped across the dawn of history and clashed in screaming battle against the mighty Roman legions.

Led by their chief, Boierik, and his son, Eodan, the hungry and homeless pagan tribes hurled back the Romans time after time in their desperate search for land. But for all the burning towns, the new· caught women weeping, the wine drunk, the gold lifted, the Cimbri did not find a home.

And now it was over. At Vercellae the Roman armies shattered them completely. Only a few survived-and for them death would have been more merciful.

Eodan, the proud young chieftain, had been caught and sold into slavery, his infant son murdered and his beautiful wife, Hwicca, taken as a concubine. But whips and slave chains could not break the spirit of this fiery pagan giant who fought, seduced and connived his way to a perilous freedom to rescue the woman he loved.
