Publisher's Summary

Caught dancing barefoot in the moonlit woods, dressed only in her shift, Elizabeth Penshurst is considered by decent folk to be notorious and disgraced. Sent by her father, a reverend, to serve penance with a cousin in Hernewood, Lizzie sets her thoughts on becoming the perfectly demure and reserved young woman any suitor would want.

But evil haunts the woods of Hernewood Abbey. As the Druid festival of Beltane approaches, a sinister cult seeks a virgin sacrifice. Their intended victim: Lizzie. Her only defender - and the man likely to relieve her of her dangerous maidenhood - is the mysterious Gabriel, the Dark Man, a fellow outcast and scholar of Druidism. The forest calls to them both.

Their irresistible attraction, both mystical and bawdy, may be the only force more powerful than the cult's dark purpose.

A hero with a dark side

Gabriel is the hero who will help Lizzie find what she needs. her father who is a hard to please minister finds her dancing in the moonlight sends her to a place that is filled with Druids and they decide to make Lizzie their virginal sacrifice. This is a dark love story but a love story nonetheless. The narrator was good also.

classic love story

I received this book free from eblast, and this is my unbiased opion. Average love story, the narrator was a bit off, listen to a sample reading before you listen. Worth a listen overall.

Two Outcasts..

Any additional comments?



This book has just about everything, Druids, Cults, and a bit of Romance.

The female lead, Lizzie is a free spirit and Gabriel, the male lead is mysterious, I though

that they were well matched

There were a few twists and turns and the story line was well written with likable

developed characters.

Overall, a Good Suspenseful Romantic Read.


Christine Rogerson did well with the narration

Sweet romance with a dark side

Any additional comments?

I really enjoyed this story. It's the first book I've listened to by Anne Stuart and I liked the characters and the setting. She did a great job a giving us a good understanding of the personalities of the two main characters and the physical setting of the story. Also, the bad people are detestable so I liked that too. I really liked Gabriel’s dark side and the consistency of his character despite falling for "an innocent". Overall it’s a good romance with tension, desire and love.

The narrator, Christine Rogerson, does a great job with the characters. I was able to easily keep track of characters from the voices she gave them. I can easily recommend this book but I must include that I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the narrator in exchange for an unbiased review.
