I'm delighted to have my dear friend Michelle Styles visiting my blog today. Michelle writes for Harlequin Mills and Boon Historical, and after she sold The Gladiator's Honor back in 2006 I love to call her the trail-blazer when it comes to opening up the line to ancient historical romances :-)

I'm over at Michelle's blog today chatting about my world of Forbidden, so do please pop by there and say hi - there's a copy of Forbidden or Captive up for grabs for one lucky commenter!

And to be in with a chance of winning an e-book of Michelle's Harlequin Undone - The Perfect Concubine - leave a comment for her over at my blog

She is a prisoner of her sworn enemy - and her own desire...

Having lost her faith when Roman invaders destroyed life as she knew it, Morwyn took a vow of celibacy to spite her goddess. But before she can join up with the rebels, she's captured by a Gaul mercenary whose animal charms and chiseled body will test her conviction... and make it harder to kill him.

Bren, pledged to the true Briton king, has spent three years undercover in the Roman Legion. So when his own unit attacks and brutalizes a fiery Celtic beauty, he saves her the only way he can - by claiming her as his prisoner. But unlike his men, Bren would never take the woman by force, no matter how obviously she burns for his touch.

As they near Roman headquarters, Morwyn resolves to honor her vow of celibacy - but if the Gaul were to ravage her, could she be blamed for enjoying his body? With just a hint of seduction, sooner or later the Gaul will succumb to his exquisite captive...
