Twenty years later and now a family man himself with children of his own, Benjamin receives a tip-off that could confirm one way or another whether his brother is alive or dead.

In A GLADIATOR’S LOVE, the latest short story by Lance Morcan, dashing Greek gladiator Leonidas promises his true love he’ll buy her freedom if he wins his own in the Colosseum of Ancient Rome. First he must defeat an opponent he knows he cannot kill.

 

A Gladiator's Love by [Morcan, Lance]

The year is 83AD and it’s nine years since Roman soldiers killed a young Leonidas’s family in their farmhouse outside Athens and consigned him to the life of a gladiator at Ludus Magnus, one of the biggest and best ludi gladiatori, or gladiator schools, in Rome. Since then, he remains undefeated after twenty-five fights and has risen to the top of the gladiator rankings.

The Greek gladiator craves freedom. The one good thing in his life is Fatuma, an Ethiopian beauty who is a gladiatrix, or female gladiator, and who has stolen his heart. They share fleeting but precious hours together after dark in Leonidas’s cell – a concession occasionally granted to the gladiators by their Roman masters.

The outcome of Leonidas’s next fight will decide both their futures for he’ll be fighting Gaius, another undefeated gladiator who held the Greek to a bloody draw when they met in the arena previously. At stake will be the rudis, the small wooden sword given to gladiators who are granted their freedom.

 

A GLADIATOR’S LOVE is available now on Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B082S2MKN3/

“An immensely entertaining romance adventure!” That’s how Amazon Hall of Fame Top 100 reviewer Grady Harp describes our new release aviation thriller-romance THE HEATHROW AFFAIR.

 

The Heathrow Affair by [Morcan, Lance, Morcan, James]

New release aviation thriller-romance.

 

Excerpt’s from Grady Harp’s review follow:

The Morcans make their novel very contemporary in feeling and content as the opening suggests: ‘The evening of July 25th was an evening young East Ender John Woods would never forget. It was the end of London’s hottest day ever when the temperature hit an all-time high of 37.9 Celsius, and Britain, like the rest of Europe, sweltered in a heatwave like no other on record. It was also the evening John’s beautiful Cambridge-born wife and childhood sweetheart Sandra announced she was pregnant. That wasn’t the only surprise in store for him, however…’ And with that degree of immediacy of conditions and seeds for intrigue, the novel sets flight on an immensely entertaining romance adventure!

… The novel is short, an exciting two-hour read, and provides a fine diversion for an evening away form the clutter of the world. Lance and James prove they can write romantic novels very well indeed. Recommended.
