An alluring beauty. A gallant emperor. The admirable military hero who answered his call. Here, drawn from history, is the love affair that brought down Rome!
Zoe, the duke's daughter, seems to have everything she could possibly want: royal birth, beauty, youth, a bright future and - at long last - Prince Constantine, whom she has adored since childhood. But these are perilous times. A powerful sultan wants to rule the world and dreams of conquering Rome. Prince Constantine, now Emperor of Rome, stands alone against his forces, vastly outnumbered and deserted by those who should be allies. His only consolation is Zoe, who has become his inspiration and secretly his empress.
Zoe understands the compelling reason why their marriage must be kept secret, but the secrecy weighs heavily on her. Rejected by her mother at birth for reasons unknown, and reviled as a whore by her peers, she feels an outcast among the nobility. Yet she must find strength in herself not only to endure what she must, but to give of her strength to Constantine.
Just as all seems lost, a princely hero famed for his military brilliance and valor brings desperately needed help. With the great warrior Justiniani to lead them, they win every battle until Rome stands on the verge of total victory. Only one last battle and they will save the empire! But Justiniani, the man who can have any woman he wants, has fallen in love with Zoe, the secret empress of Rome, the only woman he cannot have. And now, in the last moments of the last battle, he faces an impossible decision, one that could cost him -- and Zoe, Constantine, and Rome - everything.
