Lindsay Townsend

Author Lindsay Townsendabout this book: I love swimming and bathing. The ancient Romans also loved bathing as a social activity and their wonderful baths are still with us. I used the setting of Roman Bath, Aquae Sulis, as my backdrop to this sensual historical romance and in it I posed the question: 'How far can you trust your lover, especially when he is also your master?'

Flavia, my heroine, is a Celt. She is also a scribe, with a secret which, if told to the wrong people, could kill her and her fellow slaves.

Marcus, my hero, is Roman but he has an interesting, secret past.

This novel is about secrets, the secrets people are sometimes forced to keep and the secrets that should be uncovered.

Review snippets:

• 'The ancient locale that is now modern Bath lends a vivid backdrop to a tender love story surrounded by mystery, danger and deceit. Readers will appreciate Townsend's thorough research and fluid style.' — Romantic Times: 4 Stars

• 'Townsend has a great ear for snappy dialog, and even her most minor characters spring instantly to life with a carefully-chosen sentence or description. Most details of Roman Britain at the time are faithfully rendered, although at its heart, this is a timeless story of two people finding love where they least expect it.' — Historical Novels Review Online (among reviews for May 2009):
