A Great Read for those who love Ancient Rome

Jaye Shields has done it again! Her latest release Gods and Gladiators is an amazing story set in ancient Rome. It features none other than the great God of War himself Ares...a God with more than his fair share of women and war! However, when he meets mortal woman Eirana he's instantly impressed...

This is one story I wasn't sure I could put down. It was a fast paced read that focused on the heart of a god of war and the slave woman he meets. Together they prove that love does conquer all...its a must read!

When the Olympian Gods contest that the Romans aren’t nearly as mighty as they think they are, Ares, the God of War, is the first one to prove it by spending a month as a Roman. Ares arrives in Rome as a Gladiator, thrilled to have a human body in which to kick some ass. His first chance at Gladiator glory is to reenact the slaughter of the Sabines but when Ares spots a beautiful slave with eyes blazing with courage, he refuses to tear through the defenseless prisoners.

Eirana of the Gauls is only one of hundreds of women taken as slaves by the Romans. Weaponless and starved for days, she’s forced into the coliseum to be symbolically massacred. She’s seen the infamous Gladiators in action enough to know there will be no mercy. But then something incredible happens, one Gladiator chooses to protect the defenseless women. He claims to be a God, but he bleeds just like a human.

Eirana is the most incredible being Ares has ever seen. With only a month in the human realm, the God refuses to leave until knowing she is safe. But if he can conquer the Romans keeping her as a slave, will his heart still be able to let her go?

To meet Ares and Eirana yourselves, check out Gods and Gladiators on
