The multi-talented Virginia Henley gives her fans a luscious treat with her first time-travel romance. She feeds readers' deepest fantasies, and brings a magical master/slave story to life. Leave it to this grand mistress of sensuality to write another outstanding romance to keep you ENSLAVED.

Lady Diana Davenport finds the men of her own time, Regency England, to be less than inspiring. She prefers immersing herself in the history and heroes of the past. Only one man even catches her interest - Mark Hardwick, the Earl of Bath - and he is her adversary, too arrogant to inspire her respect.

While browsing through artifacts, Diana dons a Roman centurion's helmet and is transported back to Roman Bath, landing at the feet of the powerful Marcus Magnus.

Marcus doesn't know what to make of the mysterious woman who simply appeared before him and his men. He decides to take the strange woman as his slave, keeping her safe while he attempts to uncover her secrets.

Diana soon learns that falling in love with Marcus scares her more than being his slave. Here in the past she has found the man of her dreams, and now fears that she will lose him.

Abruptly swept into her own time, Diana discovers that the man she once spurned just might be her beloved Marcus.
