Caledonia AD84 - When Eirbrin meets Antony she believes she has found a mystic, a man of power who can help her to overcome old guilt and shame.
He is a spy, and everything about him should warn Brin of his deception, but her longing to atone and her growing desire for him allow her to deny any doubts she has.
To him, she should be no more than a valuable source of information. But as they move through Caledonia toward the gathering battle of Mons Graupius, they fall into an impossible relationship. Both of them should know better.
