Flavia's Secret

Book Cover
Lindsay Townsend
The price of Flavia's freedom may be her death.
Spirited young scribe Flavia hopes for freedom. She and her fellow slaves in Aquae Sulis (modern Bath) have served the Lady Valeria for many years, but their mistress' death brings a threat to Flavia's dream: her new master Marcus Brucetus, a charismatic, widowed officer toughened in the forests of Germania. Flavia finds him overwhelmingly attractive but she is aware of the danger. To save her life and those of her 'family' she has forged a note from her mistress. If her deception is discovered, all the slaves may die.

For his part torn between attraction and respect, Marcus will not force himself on Flavia. Flavia by now knows of his grief over the deaths of his wife Drusilla and child. But how can she match up to the serene, flame-haired Drusilla?

As the wild mid-winter festival of Saturnalia approaches, many lives will be changed forever.

Flavia's Secret


  1. If you've not read FLAVIA's SECRET, you're in for a treat! The young protagonist is smart, headstrong, and finding herself falling in love wth none other than her sensuous master--all in the context of the ancient Roman baths of Aquae Sulis (modern Bath).

    As with all Lindsay's works, this one will tug at your heart and fire your senses.

    All best to you, Lindsay. You are my muse! Erin O'Quinn
