Publisher's Summary

Elissa Rubria Honoria is a Vestal Virgin - priestess of the sacred flame, a visionary, and one of the most powerful women in Rome. Vestals are sacrosanct, sworn to chastity on penalty of death, but the emperor, Nero, holds himself above the law. He pursues Elissa, engaging her in a deadly game of wits and sexuality. Or is Elissa really the pursuer? She stumbles on dark secrets. No longer trusting Roman gods, she follows a new god, Jesus of Nazareth, jeopardizing her life and the future of The Roman Empire. (From “Tales from the Adytum” collection.)
Please note: Due to the setting and the times, the book includes several scenes involving deviant sex - suggestive rather than graphic - and not more than a few paragraphs.
