Twenty-first-century praetorian Carina Mitela's attempt to resolve an old family indiscretion turns into a nightmare. Convinced her beloved husband has deserted her, and with her enemy holding a gun to the head of the heir to the imperial throne, Carina has to make the hardest decision of her life.... Roma Nova - the last remnant of the Roman Empire that has survived into the 21st century - is at peace. Carina Mitela, the heir of a leading family but choosing the life of an officer in the Praetorian Guard Special Forces, is not so sure. She senses danger crawling towards her when she encounters a strangely self-possessed member of the unit hosting their exchange exercise in Britain. When a blackmailing letter arrives from a woman claiming to be her husband Conrad's lost daughter and Conrad tries to shut Carina out, she knows the threat is real. Trying to resolve a young man's indiscretion 25 years before turns into a nightmare that not only threatens to destroy all the Mitelae but also attacks the core of the imperial family itself.
