(US Cover & Title)

(UK Cover & Title)


_____________
Publish Date: April 3rd 2012
Format: Paperback 512pp

Synopsis (From the Publisher):
"Powerful, prosperous, and expanding ever farther into the untamed world, the Roman Empire has reached its zenith under the rule of the beloved Emperor Trajan. But neither Trajan nor his reign can last forever… 
Brash and headstrong, Vix is a celebrated ex-gladiator returned to Rome to make his fortune. The sinuous, elusive Sabina is a senator’s daughter who craves adventure. Sometimes lovers, sometimes enemies, Vix and Sabina are united by their devotion to Trajan. But others are already maneuvering in the shadows. Trajan’s ambitious Empress has her own plans for Sabina. And the aristocratic Hadrian—the Empress’s ruthless protégé and Vix’s mortal enemy—has ambitions he confesses to no one, ambitions rooted in a secret prophecy.

When Trajan falls, the hardened soldier, the enigmatic empress, the adventurous girl, and the scheming politician will all be caught in a deadly whirlwind of desire and death that may seal their fates, and that of the entire Roman Empire."

I still need to read 'Daughters of Rome'. I don't know why, but I keep neglecting to read it.

ugh I am with Carole! I really want to read her other ones. It shows how far behind I am when the third book gets announced...

I own both her previous books and haven't read them yet. I guess I'll have to get started on them so I'll have an excuse to buy this one too!

I can't wait for this one!

Thanks for the heads up!

Carole- Did you read Mistress of Rome? It was amazing!

Marie- Lol, I know what you mean! After I end up being that far behind I often neglect reading them due to the overwhelming stack that awaits.

S.L. Stevens- Any excuse is perfect for buying a book, but this is exceptional :)

Oh my, I didn't realize another was coming out so soon. I really must read Daughters of Rome and before this one comes out. I really enjoyed her first book. I just wish I had more time to fit in all the books I want to!
