Description

An imperial marriage is a complicated affair.

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, brokenhearted 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 actual personages as well as entirely fictional characters, plus has a touch of mysticism and the paranormal with appearances by ghosts and goddesses, priests and astrologers.
