Blurb: Galeria is ready to hit the streets of L.A. for a quick snack. She is a very happy, satisfied woman—having just left her two hot vampire lovers sleeping soundly in her bed.
But their lives weren’t always so wonderful, such a long time ago in Rome. Back then Galeria was the emperor’s daughter. She wasn’t supposed to have a scorching secret affair with the beautiful and passionate Cassian, champion gladiator of Rome. Nor should she have taken comfort in the massive, marble-like arms of Atticus—Cassian’s best friend, her night chamber guard and a closet vampire—when informed of Cassian’s supposed demise.
Too late, they discover that Cassian lives. Overcome with jealousy, he challenges Atticus to a battle to the death in the arena. Galeria is caught in the middle, tormented by her feelings for these two powerful men. But a mysterious ritual changes all their lives. Forever.
Review: Loved It! And at first I didn’t think I was going to. I found the story a bit confusing at the on set and the trip back into their history at some points felt like a telling of events rather than experiencing the story with the characters. But then about half way through the story, I realized my heart was pounding, my skin tingled and I was completely immersed in the richness of the setting and characters. I was on the edge of my seat wondering what was going to happen next, and when the scene unfolded, I ached. Talk about an emotional sucker punch. The twists and turns are completely unexpected which makes this quickie and adventurous read. Tumble back in time to the age of gladiators. Damn, I want to go back again. Oh and in case you had any question, yes the vampires are hot, the bite intense and the sex was scorching.
