Eagle's Honor: Banished by Sandra Schwab is a 2015 publication. I was provided a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Roman Centurions! What a nice change of pace from the usual historical romances being published ad nauseam these days. Marcus, a Centurion, is returning home for his brother's wedding. But, he stops over and visits with Titus, an old friend, to catch up on things. While there, he is presented with a beautiful slave dancer named Lia, provided to him by Titus for his [...]
First: this is a romance between a Roman nobleman and a slave. I did think the topic was handled careful enough but YMMV on that point.The book itself wasOK but not more. The main couple was cute but none of the other characters had any depth. I mean the vilain's motivations were 'I hate Marcus because he always was a bit condescending and had a holier-than-thou attitude when we were kids'. That's it. Marcus did not kill his favourite goldfish or anything like that. He just didn't like his attit [...]
3.5 StarsMy fisrt Roman-times romance. It was sweet love story, a quick enjoyable read. I got fully immersed in the Romance world of centurions and slaves and war. This full review is also published on my blog - Ellie Reads FictionThis my first romance set in Roman times and in generally, my first book by Sandra Schwab, so I was curious what it would be like. It turned out to be an engaging, tender love story which I greatly enjoyed. Ms Schwab's detail-oriented writing recreated convincingly the [...]
If you're getting a little burned out after reading one too many regency historical romances (guilty), please, please, give this romance a shot. It's set during the Roman expansion into Brittania, offering a fresh historical setting completely unlike the typical 18th century London ballroom. Despite the potential power imbalance in the hero/heroine dynamic--he's a roman centurion, she's another man's pleasure slave--Schwab manages to create a feminist, egalitarian, and of course, devastatingly s [...]
Unfortunately I was not able to finish this book. I found the plot to be tiresome and the excessive use of the "F" word to be annoying. I understand that using the "F" word in modern speech is expected now a days but in ancient Rome it wasn't used as a form of fornication and I feel that when an author who is writing a period piece insists on using it shows a noted lack of vocabulary.I dislike giving only one star but I couldn't get through a quarter of this book.
Another Gem Eagle’s Honor: Banished is the second book I have read by Sandra Schwab, the first being Devil’s Return (Allen’s Miscellany #4). Once again this author played my emotions like the proverbial violin and at several points during the read I was moved to tears.Romances set in the time of the Roman Empire are few and far between and I jumped at the chance to read and review it. I am fascinated by this time period, in particular the dichotomy between the civilized nature of the Roman [...]
Vikki's MusingsWhile this book has a great premise, it did not grab me. There is quite a bit of telling rather than showing. The consequences of the hero's actions were severe, yet he just accepts them and leaves his friend to try to unravel the mess. I really wanted to love this story since it is set in ancient Roman times, a period of history that is not often attempted, but while there is some good historical detail, some of the author's word choices were too modern, which took me out of the [...]
FYI This book has the f-bomb though out.Steamy sex is justified as its the only way this story could exist. The hero turns the tables on a pleasure slave by only pleasuring her something unheard of in ancient rome paricularly for a pleasure slave. I loved reading in a time and place new to me. I was challenged to research outside the book to learn more. The book I read was in an anthology Wicked Temptations. The typos were very noticeable to me I typically don't see them.
The reason for the villain hating the hero? Lame! And this is just my personal feeling, but I don't want to read about a woman that is a prostitute/slave.
