Her honor or her life, her life or her love… His choice.
Heledd Bannawg is a prisoner of war, hostage to ensure the good behavior of her father’s friends, bondservant sold to a warrior. Bruises, blisters, aching muscles are small prices to pay to avoid the nightmare of life as a warrior’s whore.
“…But they are not Heledd Bannawg, ‘ngwraig,” he finished in a low voice.
She gasped at the realization of his meaning. “I am not your woman.” Her chin lifted. “They are whores.”
“Do you think you are better?”
“I have not …” She knew as well as he that there was no substance to her claim. She was what people believed her to be – because of him. “I am not. I will never be, no matter what you do to me.”
“Some women are tricked. Some are forced. Some, like you, are willing.”
“I am not. How can you think I am willing?”
“To know love?”
“That is not love.”
“You will know love, Heledd Bannawg. You will know what it is to tempt a man beyond endurance. And you will know the depth of his love.”
He was laughing at her and every word lashed across her hard-worked, aching back that even the warmth of his hand could not ease. And she was leaning into his embrace, absorbing his scent into her body as though she couldn’t breathe without him.
“As often as I remember your soft hands and the silk of your sun-kissed skin, as much as I dream of your delicate body yielding to mine—.”
On the battlefield, Gwennan Pendyffryn meets the only man her father won’t dare kick down the stairs. Her attempt to kill him fails. Her attempt to defeat him fails. There is only one way she can conquer Jehan-Emíl – marry him. Available at Smashwords, Apple’s iBookstore, KOBO and major online booksellers.
“You will know the man…”
One woman stands against the INVASION of her home. One man holds her life in his hands. And… “he was not a man who needed a lot of women. He was a man who needed a lot of one woman. This woman.”
Invasion has undergone a few transformations since I began work on the romance, a few years after my first encounter with Cymru (Wales). I so fell in love with the country that I began to write before I knew much of the history between the Cymry and the Saeson.
Invasion is a work of the imagination, in spirit with the forces and passions that existed in the early years of co-existence between the invaders and the Celtic people who had made Briton their home.

The Tywi: Vengeance’s Son
Over the decades I have lived in Wales, I have found inspiration in so many ways, that writing has become a way of showing my ultimate respect and admiration for this Celtic country. As little known as it is outside a close-knit seiat of scholars and friends, this country has fueled many of the most important social, industrial and cultural changes the world has ever known.
