Rainbow Snippet - A Spartan Love

A Spartan Love is set in ancient Sparta and features Andreas, a helot, and Theron, a kryptes--natural enemies. It is part of my Apollo's Men series and the first in a three book arc about Andreas and Theron. Their story is continued in A Tested Love, available mid-March.

Andreas! Get in here right now. How many times do I have to tell you that the kryptes will kill you if they catch you outside after dark? He could hear his mother’s voice as if she were still alive, calling to him from the safety of their house.

“I’m trying, Mother!” he muttered to her shade. He would never forget that one of the Spartan warriors had slain his father for nothing more than being a helot.

A Spartan Love is available at Dreamspinner Press and Amazon.

    1. That is one way to describe Theron. He'd be flattered.

    1. I love them too. I guess that's obvious or I wouldn't spend so much time researching and writing them.

  8. There are some things - and words - that never leave us behind. I like seeing that here. Nicely done.
