Review by: linnetbird on Nov. 11, 2011 :
I have a soft spot for historical romances (Phillipa Gregory, Anna Godberson, etc.) and there aren't enough of them on Smashwords :(. I wasn't sure about this book because I didn't know anything about ancient Rome and I was afraid it might be stodgy and old-fashioned, but it turned out to be the best book I have read in a long time. I ended up reading the whole thing on my computer screen in a day because I was too absorbed to take the time to download it to my Nook, lol. C.S. Lund is an amazingly good writer and she has definitely done her research on this era, the language is incredibly descriptive and I felt like I was watching a movie, and even though it's historical the characters are real and relatable. This book is funny, sexy, tear-jerkingly sad, it basically has everything. I hope she writes another book soon!
