Product Description

Product Description

Quintus Ambustus is a slave--Adiona Leonia is a wealthy socialite. He fights for his life in the gladiator's ring--she plays cutthroat politics in Rome's high society. He's sacrificed everything for his Christian faith--she believes in nothing and no one. But when Adiona's life is threatened, Quintus is chosen as her bodyguard, and their fascination with one another shocks them both. Neither thought to find joy in a match society would condemn...but their feelings cannot be denied. Have they lost too much to believe in happiness? Or will their growing love let them leave the past behind--and build a new future together?

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Great First Century Romance 1 July 2010
By Sis Steele - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I picked up The Protector with trepidation. Would this follow up to the Rita-nominated The Gladiator live up to my expectations? I should not have been concerned. Once again, Capshaw has written what I have come to term a "mature" inspirational with vivid detailing of the first century, alpha males like no other, and an action packed plot. Capshaw's ability to create a vivid world often neglected in historical romances as well as her knack for twists and turns make this a book not to be missed.

Capshaw's gift for faith development shows through on every page as she draws characters who are human in their frailties but have the ability to change as they discover Christ. She took a less than likable character from her first book and made her a wonderful heroine worthy of her hero, a character I fell in love with immediately.

All I can say is "More, More!"

I read all three of the books in this series and will keep the copies. The period from which this books are set was what drew me to the books in the first place. Thanks Carla...You did not disappoint me. Keep it up!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful storyline! 29 April 2013

This is a time period ignored by so many Christian authors...and it shouldn't be! Very original, and very entertaining! This is one book in a trilogy...I recommend starting with the first book, The Gladiator.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful! 27 April 2013
By Charmaine A. Beckford - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
I enjoy reading about this time period because my dad use to take me with him to watch the Roman movies. Carla brings her characters to life and they linger with the reader long after the last page has been read. I go searching for her books.
