Trained as a mercenary soldier, Darius Laris was a man of decisive action. He was also a man of compassion. Seeing a young slave woman about to become the spoils of war, he claimed her for his own. Marrying her before God and king, he made her a free and respectable soldier's wife. Brice Ashlyn was born a slave. Abused and beaten, she learned quickly to avoid being noticed and to stay away from men. When her master's walls fell to enemy forces, she ran, but not fast enough. In Darius' offer she found deliverance, but experience had taught her to fear power such as his. Could she trust in his protection, or had she traded one form of slavery for another?

Well this was my first historical romance and I must say I was surprised that I actually enjoyed it not being in my genre of choice it made for a good read.

Our journey is with Darius and Brice. Darius being King Jenran's right hand man and Brice a slave whose home was ravaged in times of  war. Together they find love and happiness even during tough times. Rachel has written a story that would capture the heart in all of us. The only drawback there really is not much of a setting. I mean like the time period and it could have used a little more description. On the positive side it was a well written story it just flowed from one page to the next. Before I knew it I had finished this very short read.
