Felicia, high priestess of Venus, awakens on a “skyship” terrified and disorientated. Her prophetic dreams foretold Pompeii’s destruction, but no one would listen to her warnings. A handsome young man appears at her side, insisting he’s an agent of Venus. She is intrigued by his touch and soothed by his charm, but she knows his story is false. If Venus had chosen another to empower, Felicia would have sensed it.
Doctor Aiden Thrax is part of the rescue party transporting the people of Pompeii to their new home on the planet of Fedoros. He’s thrilled that so many lives have been saved, but he’s suspicious of his employer’s motivation. And his concerns are intensified by his attraction to Felicia. Each kiss, each heated embrace makes him more determined to expose the greed and corruption behind the evacuation.

New Pompeii, playground of the rich and decadent, has been operational for two years when Elaina decides something drastic must be done. Her brother and the other founders are out of control. Their cruelty and disregard for the lives and dignity of the city’s inhabitants has become widespread and twisted.
Elaina accepts her brother’s invitation and attends the gladiator games. She finds the battle revolting and barbaric, yet stirring in ways she didn’t anticipate. Theos, her brother’s new champion, is mesmerizing. His sculpted body and untamed spirit leave her aching for an up close and personal demonstration of his strength.
Theos is torn between frustration and anger. His master has requested that he pleasure Fedoran women before and he has always refused, but this time is different. He must convince Elaina that he is content, that New Pompeii exists for the pleasure of all Fedorans. If she succeeds in closing the city, she will nullify his reason for living.

Princess Naloni attends the Festival of Venus expecting to expose the orgies, decadence and brutality within New Pompeii, but instead becomes fascinated by the uninhibited sexual displays. She sees two magnificent gladiators wrestling—their naked bodies sliding, straining. She can’t help but imagine herself between their steely hardness. An instant later, she finds herself not only sandwiched between their gleaming, hard bodies, but trapped in the middle of a gladiator uprising.
Max knew his friend was going to attempt an escape. However, he had no idea a hostage would be taken. Naloni does not go quietly. She struggles, attempting to sabotage them at every turn. Max is intrigued by her resistance and aroused by her supple body. His pulse pounds as he imagines how he will take her. How he will stoke her fire until she burns out of control. Their passion is forbidden, but their hearts don’t seem to care. They abandon themselves to a romance that will change the course of their world—or destroy it.
“Max and Naloni stole my heart… Great job in converting a non-science fiction reader to one that now looks forward to more of the series.”
