Syra, wounded and captured, is taken as slave and sold in Rome to Marcus Brutus, a politician in the late Roman Republic. As the days pass, Brutus finds he is the one captivated by the beautiful slave. However, there is more to Syra than mere slave, and as events escalate with Caesar, Cicero, Brutus and others, the fate of an Empire hangs in the balance.
I was enthralled by this book – enthralled by the time period, the romance, the characters, and the historical events unfolding in an exciting, organic, yet complex way. I kept looking up the historical references, and was delighted to find the amount of research the author, Carolyn McCray, had done for this novel. Sharing the journey with Brutus and Syra was unforgettable and immensely enjoyable. Kudos, Ms. McCray!
