Taurus Antinor is the praefect of Rome, beloved of the praetorian guard and known to hold himself aloof from the debaucheries and excesses of patrician Roman society. While supervising an estate slave auction, Taurus is crossed by the powerful Dea Flavia of Caesar's family. Proud and breathtakingly lovely, Dea expects Taurus to fall prey to her beauty-and is angered when he doesn't. But Taurus owes allegiance to a crucified Galilean, and will not prostrate himself at the altar of Dea's vanity.HE LOVED HER AND HE LOVED ROME Taurus Antinor loved her, that she knew.
