Set in the time of the Roman Empire, Phillips’ wonderful story of the romance between a Roman soldier and a Celt is more than entertaining. Tiberius is strong and surprisingly openminded when faced with Carys, a Druish high priestess. The heat between these two crosses cultural boundaries, but the real question is whether they can stay together when the world is yanking them apart.

When her secret lover finds her out, Carys submits to his erotic touch and body even though their joining is forbidden, as she is a Celt and a Druid, something the conquering Tiberius Valerius Maximus will never understand, much less accept. But when circumstances keep forcing them together and their relationship begins to develop they will get caught in a war between gods and the Romans. (HEAT, Sep., 336 pp.,$15.00)
