Roma Amor official website
A novel of Caligula's Rome

Introducing a new novel about the young Roman Empire's darkest secret...

Marcus Carinna longs to prove his courage by leading legions against Rome's enemies. Instead, his ambitious father orders him home to serve the man who was his brother's closest friend. But Marcus can't forget how his brother died, accused of treason. Or that the friend who didn't try to save him was Caligula Caesar, now master of Rome.
