Xina, the daughter of a prostitute, has lived in a brothel all her life and is bought by a powerful Pompeian General, Lucius. Her life as his slave is dangerous in a house filled with intrigue and petty but lethal jealousy.

Lucius is fascinated by his new "pet" but takes his responsibility as a General seriously while living all the excess afforded Roman rules.  When dangerous enemies align against him, what will happen to his loving slave?

The master and slave may share desire for each other, but will this be enough to survive against their enemies, both known and unknown.  

Whom Gods Have Favored is a very unique look at Pompeii, with the unexpected twist of vampires.  The basic plot is good and when the storyline changes readers are shocked.  Xina is an interesting but limited character, since all she has known is servitude.  This is depicted well by Ms Bridger, as is Xina's survival instincts. Lucius is very well developed, more interesting and everything one would expect from a General, with absolutely no clichés.  There are few redeeming qualities in the background characters, but they do set up the story well.  When the storyline switched I had to check to see if it were written by two authors, but both sections are interesting.  The sex was great and perfect for the historical setting.  The ending was complete but I would also like to read about the changes the couple goes through as their lives progress.
