I've been watching the tv series 'Spartacus' and love it (some nice eye candy :) I was wondering if anyone can suggest any romance novels set in that time period? Gladiators, Romans, etc. I've tried to find some authors on the net and found only a few - Michelle Styles The Gladiator's Honor, Joy Nash, Constance O'Banyon. Has anyone read these authors?

Thanks!

Ellora's cave (erotica) has some Gladiator books, but most of them are ebooks.

Thanks for the suggestions :) I have checked out Ellora's Cave and found a few set in Rome.

My library actually has Mistress of Rome, but none of the others...

Lynn Bartlett's DEFY THE EAGLE - Roman Britain but the time period you're talking about. Excellent, older book.

And there was one that came out not too long ago (or maybe time just flies and it seems like not too long ago), but I can't recall the title. If I can find the book I'll post the title.
