About the Author

Being a poor sleeper, I’ve been making up stories for years now to try and exhaust my mind, and get some much needed sleep. It doesn’t always work as the stories then demand to be written! I write mainly Historical romances, but I’ve also written Contemporary romances, Romantic Intrigue and I’ve also tried my hand at Futuristic and Time Slip romances.

I live on the beautiful island of Anglesey in North Wales, with my wonderful husband, Colin. By day I’m an Environmental Health Officer, where I get to meet lots of interesting people – all grist to the writer’s mill.

Fantastic historical detail, a wonderfully brooding and angst-ridden hero and an appealing heroine. What a debut novel from Caroline Storer! It's not an era in history that I read much about - but I loved this. Will be looking out for more from this author. Recommended.

A lovely debut from a highly talented author. Storer has penned a very readable escapist romance set around the time of the eruptions from Mt Vesuvius. Her eye for historical detail helps to bring this steamy emotional roller coaster of a story to life. A fantastic read for when you want to escape into another time and place.

I don't read many historicals, but when I do, it's such a treat to be taken back in time. The author created a sizzling chemistry between Marsallas and Justina, realistic to their era. This was a fascinating and unique era to read about.

There are many more conflicts the characters need to overcome in a historical, which in present day no longer exist, and so it's wonderful to see how they solve their problems, overcome their fears, to that all important happy ending.

Caroline Storer's writing is truly lovely - richly detailed, each scene is brought vividly to life. A gorgeous hero and a very lovely heroine aren't anything unusual in a well written romance, but Caroline's story has an extra dimension - something that will ensure these characters stay with you for a long time after you've finished reading the story.

I loved this book very much.

Brooding alpha hero, wronged heroine, big misunderstanding, love prevails, gritty Roman setting. What's not to love? Marsallas is an undie-igniting hero if ever I read one! Justina was a strong character who had suffered but was still kind and loving. I love Roman times and thought the nod to some of the characters from Quo Vadis (a film I absolutely loved) was a great touch. I won't spoil the plot but if you love a romance with lots of sexual tension, a smoking hot hero and a past misunderstanding/obstacle to overcome the. This is it!

"The Roman" is filled with so much passion and raw desires. It is an intense historical fiction story with a testament of the power of true love. Marsallas and Justina's chance at happiness was ripped away very early on in their lives. The author did a splendid job of unravelling their story so well. Based on the blurb and the early portions of the story, I was initially angry with Justina for hurting Marsallas when they were young. But each time they were in each other's presence, the emotions leapt right off of the pages; it was clearly undeniable. And then, when Justina's side of the story came to light, I truly felt it for their stolen love.

I breezed through the pages of the story, gobbling up the words, eager to find out if true love was really true. Several times, I had to remind myself that the couple was not real, as I became frustrated with their inability to quickly allow the past to die along with the one that caused their turmoil. I further enjoyed how the author took liberty with the era and location, making events her own. This particular era was so meaningful. There were certain topics that were brushed upon that I would have loved to see explored more, though that is for my own curiosity. Consequently, I would love to read an extension of this works, as I always love to know the story beyond the story. Nonetheless, I was pleased with Caroline Storer's story. I would certainly recommend it to readers that enjoy a clever mixture of historical fiction and romance.
*4.5 Stars*

'The Roman' is a powerful love story about betrayal and second chances. Written using modern language with well placed historical references it gives the reader a taste of Ancient Rome without slowing the pace of the story.

Marsallas and Justina are characters typical of the time period made memorable because they break away from their expected life paths to find fulfilment. Justina's artistic talent saves her from madness tied to a cruel man who views her as a possession rather than a companion. Marsallas runs from his safe but barren life and becomes a Chariot Rider the Roman equivalent of a celebrity footballer in the 21st century.

Marsallas is a tortured sexy man who has no use for human emotion. Justina still values love and family despite the degradation and abuse she has suffered in her young life. Fate throws the tragic young lovers together again but is revenge the only emotion binding them?

The interplay between Marsallas and Justina is engaging and full of sexual tension reaching a delightfully steamy peak. Full of angst this story makes you walk an emotional tightrope right until the last page. Thankfully it is worth the effort.

I received a copy of this book from Harper Impulse via NetGalley in return for an honest review.
