She is the voluptuous breathtaking exquisite Acte, the illegitimate daughter of Emperor Claudius and a slave for life in the royal household. When the virile young Nero first spies her magnificent beauty in the palace garden, he knows he must have her at any cost. Acte is also drawn to Sergio, the handsome gladiator. It is with him that she finds the true, pure love she has dreamed of. But in a loveless world where lust and power rule side by side, Acte's secret obsession with Sergio can me only one thing in Nero's decadent court - doom.
Would you try another book from Becky Lee Weyrich and/or Kathleen Godwin?
I WOULD PROBABLY LISTEN TO ANOTHER BOOK BY BECKY LEE WEYRICH BUT I DON'T KNOW A BOUT THE NARRATOR. KATHLEEN GODWIN COULD HAVE BEEN A LITTLE MORE ENTHUSIASTIC IN HER READING. SHE WASNT RIGHT FOR THE BOOK...
What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?
I THINK THE MOST INTERESTING WHEN NERO MOTHER WAS TRYING TO GET HER SON TO BE THE EMPERIOR AND SHE WAS KILLING OFF ANYONE THAT GOT IN HER WAY..THE LEAST INTEREST WAS PART WAS NIKEE AND ACTE GOT RAPE
Have you listened to any of Kathleen Godwin’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
I HAVE NEVER LISTEN TO HER BEFORE.. SHE WAS NOT A VERY GOOD NARRATOR FOR THIS BOOK...
If this book were a movie would you go see it?
Any additional comments?
FIRST OF ALL THIS BOOK WAS SO BUSY YOU DIDNT KNOW WHEATHER YOU WHERE COMING OR GOING. IT HAS MARRIAGE BETWEEN UNCLE AND THE NIECE AND MARRIAGE BETWEEN TWO COUSIN AND IT ALSO HAD RAPE, ABUSE, ADULTRY AND INCEST (MOTHER AND SON SLEEPING TOGETHER) YOU NAME IT SEEM LIKE IT HAD A LITTLE OF SOMETHING IN IT. AND AT THE END IT SEEM LIKE IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN MORE OF A ENDING BECASUE YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT HAPPEN TO NERO, IT KIND LEFT YOU HANGING. BUT ALL AND ALL IT REALLY IS A DIFFERENT KIND OF HISTORICAL READ. IF YOU CAN STAND ALL WHAT I HAPPEN IT THE BOOK YOU MIGHT ENJOY THE READ..THE GOOD THINK I CAN SAY IS THAT SEX SCENE WASNT DONE IN FULL DETAIL, IT DIDN'T GO INTO TO MUCH DETAIL WITH THE SEX SCENE YOU HAVE TO USE YOUR IMAGINATION....
