Ulric is a LYCAN GLADIATOR, whose deepest wish is twofold
he would love his freedom and to find his mate. He must
find a maiden with a special wolf mark for she is the only
fitting mate for an alpha. But Ulric is a slave and meeting
this maiden will not be easy. He does meet an intriguing
woman who draws him as no other ever has.
Cassia is a slave whom everyone thinks is being trained in
healing by her physician master but the truth be known she
is already a healer. She is a Lycan healer. This is a well
kept secret because were it known that she is a wolf maiden
it is possible that the alpha of the local pack would keep
her for breeding purposes. As a slaves mate she would
belong to his master. That would be something that Ulric
would never stand for; no one will enslave his mate in such
a way. But what can a slave do to stop it ... find freedom.
LYCAN GLADIATOR is filled with the betrayal, jealousies and
intrigue that we all see as part of ancient Rome and with
the added twist of Lycans and wolf maidens you will not be
able to put this one down. Author Eva Gordon is able to use
her talent with description to make it seem as if the
ancient world is alive and you are there with the lovers
and those who would stop them. I found Ulric enticing with
his strength and abilities to survive and Cassia a woman
with secrets but with an open heart. I worried for a little
while that love would not triumph over the evil that seemed
to surround them but not to worry ... the happily every
is part of this storyline. I enjoyed this book so much that
I cannot wait to see what else Ms. Gordon comes up with for
During a time of bloody gladiator games and treacherous
schemes, a secret society of lycans live amongst the Romans.
When Ulric, a lycan gladiator, meets a mysterious human
woman with green eyes, he’s drawn to her fiery beauty,
enraptured by her alluring aroma. Unfortunately, Ulric and
the beauty are slaves. To make matters worse, he can mate
only with someone marked with the sign of the wolf.
Cassia’s hidden wolf mark burns in the presence of the
handsome gladiator. While her heart yearns to be near Ulric,
logic warns her against it—having a slave as a mate is
against the lycan society’s plans for her.
In spite of the lycan society’s rules and the emperor’s
brutal plots, their love grows … but their passion just may
cost them their lives.
