Meet the Gladiator Prince

Author Minnette Meador has a new book out this month, set in the same very real, very English historical world as The Centurion and the Queen and The Edge of Honor. In the Gladiator Prince,


Prince Thane is the last surviving royalty of the Trinovantes Tribe in Roman Britannia, having surrendered to the Romans after the Boudicca Revolt to save his two daughters, whose identities he sacrifices his freedom to protect. He is condemned by Nero himself to become a gladiator, to fight until he dies in the arena. When his two daughters are taken in a slaver's raid, Thane escapes, forcing the daughter of his master to take him to Rome to save his children. Little does he know that the beautiful Syrian woman holds not only the key to his passion, but a secret that triggers a disaster that ignites the world. Will this spoiled willful girl betray him in the end or sacrifice herself to save them all? Book III of the Centurion Series.


If you've been following Minnette's book tour this month you'll know she takes her historical research very seriously, then adds a dash of delightfully believable imagination to create great stories. Tomorrow she'll be visiting my blog to give you a glimpse into what she's learned of the history of London. I've already seen her post, and you really shouldn't miss it, some really fascinating facts and intriguing details... Minnette will be ready to answer your questions too, so don't forget to leave comments.
