Publisher's Summary

A.D. 69. The Roman Empire is up for the taking. The Year of Four Emperors will change everything - especially the lives of two sisters with a very personal stake in the outcome.

Elegant and ambitious, Cornelia embodies the essence of the perfect Roman wife. She lives to one day see her loyal husband as Emperor. Her sister Marcella is more aloof, content to witness history rather than make it. But when a bloody coup turns their world upside-down, both women must maneuver carefully just to stay alive.

As Cornelia tries to pick up the pieces of her shattered dreams, Marcella discovers a hidden talent for influencing the most powerful men in Rome. In the end, though, there can only be one Emperor... and one Empress.

    "Riveting though . . . Shouldn't this have been"

    the first book in the series? It gives a beautiful perspective on the world that created the story scape of Mistress of Rome. Either way don't sleep on this author. If you love Anita Diamant or Maria Kalogridis you will eat this tome up.

    "Great book!"

    I read The Mistress of Rome before I read this book, and I enjoyed Mistress of Rome a little better than this one, however it was still a great book and very interesting stories and characters!
