    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.

    Not as good :(

    The story isn't as good as the "Mistress to Rome". I literally fell asleep within 35 mins in.

    Powerful, prosperous, and expanding ever farther into the untamed world, the Roman Empire has reached its zenith under the rule of the beloved Emperor Trajan. But neither Trajan nor his reign can last forever...

    5 mins in AND ITS WONDERFUL!

    I would listen to both "Mistress of Rome" & "Empress of the 7 Hills" all in one sitting if I could!

    Elegant, secretive Sabina may be empress of Rome, but she still stands poised on a knife's edge. She must keep the peace between two deadly enemies: her husband, Hadrian, Rome's brilliant and sinister emperor; and battered warrior Vix, who is her first love. But Sabina is guardian of a deadly secret: Vix's beautiful son, Antinous, has become the emperor's latest obsession.

    Fantastic plot, not so great performance

    The storyline of this book is great, especially towards the end: gripping! However, about half the book is from a male perspective. I think that they ..Show More »
