Contessa Donnatella Margherita Luchella di Poliziano has lived a long time with her regret. If there were only some way to correct her past mistake and have her only true love with her forever. But it is against the rules to make another vampire. She cannot help but wonder if she had it to do over again, would she make the same choice?
Jergan Britannicus Lucellus is a Celt who has been captured by the Romans and brought to Rome to be sold as a slave. At first he believes that he will be sold to a brothel that caters to men, but is surprised when Livia purchases him as her bodyguard. He vows to himself that he will be the worst slave she has ever owned. But will his attraction to her keep him from fulfilling that vow?
Livia is plotting behind the scenes to overthrow the current emperor, Gaius Julius Caesar Augustus Germanicus, and restore the Republic. In doing so, she is attacked and many wonder how she survived, hence the reason she needs a bodyguard. When her future self finds a time machine and goes back in order to offer Jergan the immortal life of a vampire, she must live her past history over again. Will she make the same mistakes this time?
This sixth book in the Companion Series is out of this world. It is simply amazing and will draw you in so deeply you will think you are there. Ms. Squires is a truly outstanding author and she just keeps getting better. The romance and the realization of true love are slow in coming but when they arrive, they bloom and never die. If you have read any of this series, then this latest will only add to your enjoyment of this series. Ms. Squires has done an excellent job of keeping her fans hooked. I know I will be for many years to come.
