Spartan Love: Book One

The Epics of Apollo's Men

Alone, Andreas toils on a remote farmstead for a Spartan overlord. When a kryptes enters his world, Andreas fears for his life. The dread warriors stalk and kill helots-like Andreas' father-as part of their training.

Andreas sees only one way to save himself: he must tame the fearsome warrior.

But what began as self-preservation develops into attraction. Yearning for the company of someone other than his ferret, Ictis, Andreas decides to trust the Spartan warrior and risk the fate that claimed his father.

Born to rule by the sword, Theron sees the world as his and acts accordingly, taking everything Andreas offers and reaching for more. However, love between men in Sparta is considered shameful and requires either exile or suicide to redeem Sparta's honor. Now, only the gods can save them from the terrible price Sparta extracts from men who desire other men.


A very unique historical romance that is very rich in the setting and the background, one can tell the author has done her research.  The setting of the story is almost half of the story! Despite some of the characters' inner monologue being a bit repetitive and tiresome, this has been a fascinating read and perfect for its time and place.  I can't help caring for and rooting for the lovers to overcome their difficulties.  A memorable story that makes me wanting more when it's finished.
