This story takes place in a villa in ancient Rome at the time of Julius Ceaser. Julia, a relative of Ceaser, divorced her creepy husband Lucius because he abused her. This was quite a scandal!! Back living with her disappointed father and stepmother, Julia all but waits for something to make her feel alive.. Enter Valen.
A Sexy, tortured, honorable, Muscled Gladiator…He has been sent to stay with Julia’s Family whilst the Arena Games in Rome are being prepared. Having been a gladiator for 5 years, he is destined to fight his last fight as a slave in the arena, with liberty within his reach he doesn’t need to distractions.
Julia is drawn toward the brawny brute, and the forbidden passion he invokes with her. Through a series of challenging events, dangerous ex-husbands and interfering friends and family, this delightful historical romance was one of the best I’ve read in a long time.
Erotic Romance from Ancient Rome is becoming a bit of an obsession of mine and this did not disappoint. The characters were engaging and the storyline imaginative. I especially liked the gripping gladiatorial fights!
Overall, Michelle Styles does a great job of keeping the reader engaged to the very end.
This is a great book for anyone who likes their Romance Erotica light
