Release day: Betrayed

20 March 2013

Today is the official release of Betrayed by Christina Phillips (ebook, Ellora’s Cave).  Here’s the blurb:

BetrayedIn 51 A.D., Druid priestess Nimue is injured and enslaved by the hated Roman Legions. Even though she is drawn to her captor, she’s determined to escape and complete her mission for the Briton king and her duty to Arianrhod, the goddess she is bound to.

The tough Roman warrior who captures her is far from the brutal barbarian she expects. His touch inflames her desires and passion burns between them. Though Nimue does not accept her enslavement, her heart surrenders to her enemy. When Arianrhod appears to her in the form of an owl, Nimue knows the union is blessed.

Roman warrior Tacitus is enchanted by the fiery beauty who shows no fear and challenges him at every turn. Though enslaving her goes against his heart, he’s determined to make her his. No woman has ever heated his blood as she does. But when he discovers her true nature as one who actually communes with the gods, his loyalties are torn between his heritage and a woman who could destroy everything he’s ever believed in.

A Romantica® fantasy erotic romance from Ellora’s Cave

Christina dropped by to tell us a little about this book:

Betrayed is the third book set in my world of hot Roman warriors and magical Druid heroines, and I couldn’t be more thrilled that it’s finally been released 🙂 Tacitus and Nimue haunted me for two years, wanting their story to be told, and when the book sold to Ellora’s Cave last year I couldn’t wait to return to their world where gods and goddesses fight for the right to survive. Betrayed is the story of Tacitus, a Roman tribune conflicted by his past and cursed by a sense of honor few of his peers share. He’s forced to go against everything he believes in by enslaving Nimue in order to keep her safe. As for Nimue, she is caught up in a battle that threatens to destroy her world. But she also has to battle her illicit desire for a man who challenges every prejudice she has ever held.

You can find out more about the book at Christina’s website and buy it at Ellora’s Cave.

      Hi katherinesol80,

      Oh thank you so much for letting me know how much you love my stories! That’s wonderful 🙂 I’m really hoping BETRAYED goes to print, but there doesn’t seem to be a specific time frame as to when print follows the e-book. At the very least it will be several months, I think. As soon as I have any more info I’ll be shouting it out to the world!!!
