Touched by a Gladiator

Marisa Chenery has done it again. I never thought I would enjoy her Gladiators as much as I enjoy her werewolves. Boy was I wrong, they are awesome.

Petra works for an antiquities collector, circa Ancient Roman times. Her boss brings home a gladiator's rudis which is a symbol of winning their freedom in a Roman Arena. This particular rudis gives Petra the ride of her life. She touches it and a window appears in a gladiator's cell. She comes face to face with a 4th century Roman gladiator named Euric. Euric is surprised and aroused by the sight of a scantily clad woman in a window. Thus begins a love affair that spans centuries between a 21st century woman and an ancient Roman gladiator.

Hold on tight for the ride of your life.

Book Blurb for Touched by a Gladiator

Petra never expected an antique replica of a gladiator’s rudis would impact her life, but impact it did, deliciously so. The moment she touches the relic a window to the past appears, and what she sees on the other side is shocking, beyond reason…hot. She can see into the world of an ancient Roman gladiator who is sexy as sin, and she soon discovers she’ll do anything for the opportunity to touch him.

Euric doesn’t know what to make of the strange window that appears in his cell, but he knows exactly what he wants to do with the woman on the other side. If only he could get to her. When the two discover they can touch through the portal, their sexual chemistry ignites and all thought as to why they shouldn’t be together disappears.

But when faced with the decision of leaving behind the lives they know, can either of them take that final step through the window, into the life, and arms, of the one they love?
