What inspired you to write your book?
I have a long love of history, in particular Ancient Rome. Writing this and subsequent books, to be released soon, has allowed me to combine my passion for the exotic setting with my love of steamy erotica.
Here is a short sample from the book:
Antonia enjoyed the rosy blush that came to the younger woman’s soft face as she rushed to fetch a carafe. She loved teasing and embarrassing the young slave Quintus had recently provided for her, though it was easy sport. Her wealth afforded her the leisure to devise amusements for herself which her indulgent but oft absent husband rarely provided, and she had already laid the groundwork with Julia for the approaching festival of Saturnalia. And with Uster, the hulking guard who Juila couldn’t seem to keep her wide eyes from following.
Antonia had noticed the obvious infatuation several weeks earlier, as the two servants constantly stole glances and exchanged nervous smiles. She had also heard whispers among the household of their burgeoning romance. Antonia blamed neither for the attraction, and found it both sweet and enticing. Uster was a perfect specimen, bought from the markets as a captured tribesman from Thracia. He had served Quintus as a guard for several years, and shown absolute loyalty in his time with them. The regular training he undertook had honed his tall body, and his eyes were kind and energetic.
