Aulus dies in Britannia and his ghost haunts his brother, Roman soldier Lucius Ulpius Aquila. When Lucius travels to take over his brother's post in Britannia, he notices the ghost disappears only in the presence of a captive woman, Rhiannon.

Her Roman captors don't know Rhiannon is a Celtic queen. She witnessed the death of Aulus and the imprisonment of his soul in the circle of stones by the Celtic wizard. Her growing love for Lucius means she must escape soon and somehow stop the death of another Roman commander.

Nash creates a suspenseful, haunting and high-tension romance between conqueror and captive in a sensually realistic setting. A top-notch read. SENSUAL (Jun., 309 pp., $5.99)
