Silvana Junia is doing the best she can with what little she has to work with. Her uncle has lost the money that would secure her brother a position as a Junior Tribune and she is willing to do almost anything to make sure it happens. Her former stepson has control of the debts and holds the power to ruin her if she cannot find a protector.

Lucius Aurelius Fortis believes the Fates are smiling on him when he pulls a wet Silvana from the bay. He does not realize that this is the woman he has been summoned home to save his cousin from. He is also home to catch a pirate and the senator who is the go between. He is hoping he will catch them but never imagined he would be caught by Silvana in the process.

Silvana has a hard time accepting help from anyone, let alone a stranger. But Fortis is persistent and rises to the challenges as she throws them at him. He attends the dinner parties held by her uncle and watches her almost possessively. He realizes soon that Silvana and her family are being setup by the very person he is there to catch. When Silvana's uncle is caught and imprisoned, she makes a deal with Fortis to become his mistress. Too late he realizes her shocking secret and also knows that she is in danger from her stepson. Will he be able to save her and their relationship?

An amazing read and one filled with interesting historical facts. Ms. Styles has done the research for this book extremely well and makes it an entertaining read. I loved the strong willed and equally strong tempered character of Silvana. Fortis is equally arrogant and strong willed, but short to temper. That makes him a wonderful alpha male in my book. The suspense of the story will have you holding your breath, while the love scenes will make you melt. This book is a must read for anyone who loves historical romances with just a dash of suspense. Ms. Styles is on my author watch list after reading this marvelous book.
