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.
