Lindsay Townsend's erotic historical romance, SILK AND STEEL, is available now through Siren-Bookstrand. Lindsay says, "After I wrote FLAVIA'S SECRET, I found myself fascinated by the story of a Roman girl who served as a toga girl in the public baths. Could there be a happy ever after for her and a man equally reviled and desired in Roman society--a gladiator? "Silk and Steel" is my story of two people redeemed by love."

It is Rome AD80. Corinna is a bath-girl, a slave compelled to please men. Decimus is a gladiator, a slave forced to kill men. When they come together in a union of silk and steel, they discover new passion, desire and the possibility of love.
SILK AND STEEL marks Lindsay's third novel set in the exotic, sensual world of ancient Rome. The other titles are ESCAPE TO LOVE and FLAVIA'S SECRET. To see all 3 of these exciting novels, please visit her Siren-Bookstrand author page.
