I have finished a wonderful book and I just had to share it with you all!! It’s called The Champion and it is written by Carla Capshaw. This particular book is set in ancient Rome and it is one of three of Mrs. Chapshaw’s books that are set in that time period. But don’t panic, they are three separate stories not three parts of one story. J
TIberia the younger, or Tibi, is the second daughter of Tiberius. Tiberius wanted a son and He didn’t get one. As a result, it seems that Tibi cannot earn anything but her father’s scorn. Now that Tibi is older, it is time for her to be married. Marriage is, supposedly, one of the few things that Tibi could do to “be of use” to her family. However, after four failed engagements, Tibi’s father has lost his patience with her and has decided to make her become a priestess in the temple so that she can “be of some use” to the family. Tibi would rather risk death than to become a temple priestess to a false “goddess” that she has never really believed in….so she does. Tibi makes a run for it earning herself death threats from her father. Tibi knows her father’s temper and that he really might go through with it. Tibi needs a champion. Desperate, Tibi turns to the only person who might shelter her until her christian cousins are in town…Alexius, champion gladiator of Rome. Can a frightened girl from a violent home trust a man known for killing and maiming others in the Coliseum? What happens next is more than Tibi bargained for and more than she had ever dreamed possible.
Readers this book is amazing!!! You will NOT be sorry you read it!! This is the first Carla Capshaw book I have ever read and I have been instantly transformed into a Carla Capshaw Fan!! Mrs. Capshaw’s fast paced plot line and colorful characters will keep your eyes glued to the page and your mind racing! And not only is Mrs. Capshaw a master at love stories, but at suspense also! I can confess that I would read 100 pages at a time and not even realize how much time had passed because I was so engrossed in what was happening in the book! I stayed on the edge of my seat! I give The Champion 5 bookmarks and strongly recommend it to all looking for a good, old fashioned love story that will keep you guessing! The Champion by Carla Capshaw is without a doubt, one of the best new romantic stories released in any genre!
