Marcus Carinna hears a voice whisper, `Your turn,` as he rides
past his family tomb. An unseen presence also startles the Germanic
priestess Aurima, whom he is bringing to Rome. But hardheaded Romans
scoff at ghosts, and Marcus can't believe it's a warning from his
brother, who killed himself three years earlier.

37 AD: To great acclaim, 25-year-old Caligula Caesar has become
Rome's new master. No one is more pleased than Senator Titus Carinna,
who helped him succeed to the throne. It's a shame the Senator's older
son--Caligula's closest friend--committed suicide after being charged
with treason. But that still leaves Marcus, his second son.

Headstrong and hot-tempered, Marcus would rather prove his
courage by leading legions against Rome's enemies than take his
brother's place. Yet when his father orders him to befriend Caligula, he
has no choice.

Caught in a web of deceit, conspiracy, and betrayal, he will
uncover a secret that threatens his family, the woman he desires, even
his life... and may bring chaos to the young Roman Empire.

About Sherry Christie

Vikings were the heroes of my first historical novel at age 11. They soon lost out to Romans, thanks to "Ben Hur" and "Spartacus." After earning a Phi Beta Kappa creative award in college for an early draft of ROMA AMOR, I spent many years of research and revision developing the story into the struggle between fathers and sons that it wanted to be. It's a joy to immerse myself in the lives of first-century Romans-and a definite change from my day job as a professional copywriter. I live on the coast of Maine with a native-born Viking and two cats.
