Snatched from the streets of London — she became the most hated women in all France
A bitter blend of murder and blackmail
She was alone — with a crew lashed by a hurricane and maddened by desire
The world-famous novel of a broken people

Imperial Rome — centre of the world — throbbing with the white heat of violence, bloodshed and uninhibited sexuality…
Bought as an actor, kidnapped by pirates, sold as a gladiator, young Cleon’s beauty and flagrant masculinity made every woman – harlots and Vestal Virgins alike – desire him.
And passion drives Cleon to help destroy a Caesar who combined the vices of his predecessors with his own special perversions — the Emperor Nero…
Frank Frazetta also did a cover for this book.
