About this ebook

"Loved it! A compelling, gripping, original time travelling romance novel with wonderful characters." — ReedsyDiscovery

"An engaging time-travel tale that appreciates its characters’ histories as much as ancient Rome." — Kirkus Reviews

"Ancilla is an uncommon novel that mixes science fiction and romance in an entertaining way. The readers are transported through diverse settings; these vary from wormholes and the most recent technology to years before Christ with archaic methods. The edition was outstanding...I rate Ancilla 4 out of 4 stars. I recommend it for those who like the science fiction genre blended with romance." —


For psychiatrist Nicole Sava, the time has come to start a new path to letting go and living her dreams. But an unexpected reunion with Autumn and Brandy, her two childhood friends, turns into a nightmare beyond anything Nicole could imagine. When a lab accident warps the fabric of time and space, all three women are thrust half a world away and two millennia into the past.

Now, it’s a struggle for survival in Ancient Rome, a future dependent upon the lifelong bond of three friends. But Nicole needs to evolve quickly. Mistaken as slaves, one friend goes missing, and the other is close to death—she must push herself to the limit and save them all.

Yet, she can’t do it alone.

Nicole’s master, Marcus, has the power to help her, but can she trust him or deny the feelings his presence brings? Can she trust anyone?

The danger stacks higher for Nicole when a man in Marcus’s household reveals he’s more than what he seems. She must fight to uncover what he’s hiding, why he’s there, and if he can get them home.

There are questions she can’t find answers to, impossible choices she will have to make, and redemption she may never recover. Is Nicole prepared for what it takes to survive if there is no way home?

Is surviving worth it if she loses everything?
