As an upper-class woman in Ancient Rome, that is her place
in life. But when her husband, Lucius, the owner of a
prestigious gladiatorial school, uses her body as a
bargaining tool to increase his fortunes, she is faced with
doing as he demands-or finding herself on the street.
Forced to lie with masked gladiators chosen by Lucius, Alba
is surprised to discover pleasure in being powerless. Only
in the forbidden arms of Caius and Marcus does she find
comfort, however temporary it may be.
But with Lucius' demands looming and the threat of death
for her gladiators ever present, will Alba's fleeting
pleasures be enough? Or will she finally grab hold of her
own desires, no matter the consequences?
