Native tribes either yield their lands and possessions to become vassals of Rome or fight to the death.As Roman legions approach the Cornovii hillfort near the River Severn, Caerwin watches from the rocky battlements. Shrinking in horror as her tribesmen fall before the Roman blade, she turns to escape. Captured and held in Roman camp, she faces Legate Marcellus Antistius who makes it clear she will submit to hisdemands. In spite of her resistance, he forces her pleasure.She would rather die.A romantic story of conquest and submission, this novel follows Caerwin as she refuses to come to terms with her new reality: life as she knew it is over. Forever. In its place stands a man she can never love.Based on historical fact, Caerwin and the Roman Dog brings to life the little known Cornovii tribe. Their confrontation with Rome’s legions at the hillfort known as the Wrekin remains a scant memory from those times. The tribe’s leader, Virico, is honored in the naming of Rome’s subsequent fortress at Viriconium Cornoviorum,the ruins of which survive near Shrewsbury, Shropshire.
