She faced him once again, this time with hate in her eyes. “What about all your slave boys? Are they not satisfying enough? Is your appetite so voracious you need to start in on the women of the imperial household?” She spat in his direction.
Incensed by her vituperation, Hadrian recoiled to strike her. He flinched, stopping himself, knowing abundantly well that he would be admonished harshly…
It is said theirs was a loveless union.
He was vain and arrogant, his passion for a youth one of the most celebrated romances in history. She was moody, difficult, and aborted his heir to prevent harming the human race.
And yet, she left her home and followed him to the ends of the Empire, from Britannia to Egypt. He died only months after her, a crushed, broken-hearted man.
This is the story of Hadrian and Sabina.
Divided into four parts, following four love affairs – including that of Hadrian and his beloved Antinous – Hadrian and Sabina: A Love Story offers a new interpretation of the relationship between the Roman emperor and his wife, and new insights into 2nd-century imperial politics. Darkly erotic and intensely historical, Hadrian and Sabina features historical personages as well as entirely fictional characters, with a touch of paranormal.
A War Zone
Seduced into marriage by the wicked British general Lord Strathmore, Lady Clara Hastings is forced to leave her beloved England for the shores of the uncivilized American colonies. They arrive upon the outbreak of that young nation's struggle for independence.
Kidnapped and held for ransom by Strathmore's enemies, Clara learns of her husband's debauched pleasures and sadistic past, and discovers her own sensual needs and carnal desires.
A Quest For Freedom
Escaping captivity, Clara is taken by patriot fighters. In their clutches, her beliefs are challenged, her values are threatened, and she is caught up in a battle for her heart in the arms of a handsome American revolutionary.
Epic Passion During the American Revolution
She had never been kissed before, had never known the wonderful sensations of a man's lips and tongue tasting her own, of his hands clasping her body to press her more fully against his masculine form. It was extraordinarily delightful, but it was ever so wrong. Her hands flat on his chest, Clara tried to push him away. "Please, my lord, we are not engaged. This cannot be right."
