Empress of the Seven Hills

Book 3, Empress of Rome

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


A tale of love, power and intrigue from the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of The Alice Network.  
Powerful, prosperous, and expanding ever farther into the untamed world, the Roman Empire has reached its peak under the rule of the beloved Emperor Trajan. But neither he nor his reign can last forever...

Brash and headstrong, Vix is a celebrated ex-gladiator returned to Rome to make his fortune. The sinuous, elusive Sabina is a senator's daughter who craves adventure. Sometimes lovers, sometimes enemies, Vix and Sabina are united by their devotion to Trajan.

But others are already maneuvering in the shadows. Trajan's ambitious Empress has her own plans for Sabina. And the aristocratic politician Hadrian—who is both the Empress's ruthless protégé and Vix's mortal enemy—has ambitions he confesses to no one, ambitions rooted in a secret prophecy.

When Trajan falls, they all will be caught in a deadly whirlwind that may seal their fates, and that of the entire Roman Empire...

After Trajan suffers a stroke, Plotina s manipulations secure Hadrian s ascension to the throne, making Sabina the reluctant empress. Despite their past quarrels, Hadrian makes Vix his personal guard, and he and Sabina resolve to defy the new emperor, the foreshadowed consequences of which point to the continuation of the series.
