When in Rome

When in Rome by SweetUnknown
Fix-ups are the worst for Kate, who hasn't trusted a man since her father took off. So when the gods send her back to Ancient Rome and into the arms of a famous gladiator, she's certainly going to have something to say about it. Even if he is her soulmate

Kate Thinks: This story is completely and utterly addictive. The author, SweetUnknown, does a wonderful job of making her unique and imaginative plot seem real and believable. In the story a girl named Kate is sent back in time to be with her true love Crispinus. Unfortunately, he Roman gladiator. The main reason I think SweetUnknown does such a fantastic job is, because when Kate is sent back in time she does not instantly understand Latin or Roman customs. She struggles to fit in and understand what is happening around her, and if it weren't for Crispinus she'd be in so much trouble. I also adore the romance between Kate and Crispinus because the author makes their chemistry so intense and yet believable. The fact that she mirrors their romance with glimpses of the gods' love lives, especially Hades and Persephone, adds a whole new layer of depth to the story. The way she writes is wonderfully descriptive and it feels as if you are reading a published book. I would definitely suggest this to anyone looking for a excellently written romance.

  1. One of my absolutely favorite stories!!!! I wish SweetUnknown made a sequel. It would be so interesting to read from Crispinus's point of view!
