Having gone through the same training, Marcus Valerius Falco and Arminius have discovered together of the intoxication of combat and the pleasures of the senses. What started as a mutual dislike has gradually turned into shared respect, and eventually friendship. In this second volume, Marcus launches himself into the amorous pursuit of the gorgeous Priscilla. Unfortunately, the lady in question is already promised to another, leading the love-crazed Marcus into rash decisions and sticky situations. Luckily, Arminius has got his back, but his tolerance of his best friend's foolishness soon reaches its limits... Sexy, action-packed, with plenty of plotting and poison, against the backdrop of the Roman Empire's relentless military conquests.
