HER WARRIOR SLAVE

Image of Her Warrior Slave

The backdrop of ancient Ireland adds
color to a conventional captive plot. Willingham's likable characters, classic story and underlying sexual tension make this a pleasant read.

Determined to pay penance for his brother's death, Kieran sells himself into slavery and is bought by the Irishman Davin, who asks him to carve a small figure of his betrothed, Iseult.

Though she's to marry Davin, Iss is fascinated by Kieran. She hopes to convince the warrior to help her find her son Aidan who was stolen from her last summer. Kieran is far more attracted to Iseult than a slave should be, and even though Davin has promised him his freedom he believes he cannot give her what she needs. Iss wants to break her engagement and go with Kieran to find Aidan. But there are forces that will separate the lovers, and only a twist of fate can bring them back together.
