Alexandra of Sparta vowed her sword and her heart to the goddess Artemis. And the goddess blessed her. But no warrior lives at peace, and soon, Alexandra loses her title, her troops, and all she holds dear, including the man who holds her heart. Cursed by a Babylonian witch, she is forced to return to a city she once conquered to make amends, but is captured by the powerful Persian rebel, Artaxerxes.
As his prisoner, she awaits judgment for her crimes. But Artaxerxes is not what he seems. With death approaching, Alexandra must face her violent past and discover the truth of her captor’s identity before it’s too late.

My Thoughts
Alexandra of Sparta...
Feared, revered, reviled, even called a queen.
But what of those who loved her?
Her most trusted men at arms.
Her female confidant and lover, Mithra
And...
The young lordling, turned slave.
Destined to be the only man ever to hold captive.  The only heart that all the world had failed to tame.
That of the Queen Of. Warriors

This wondrous tale of war, victory, desire, atonement, bloodshed, and love. Is one that serves to unveil the mystery and legend that often surrounds great heroes and heroines.

Allowing readers full and unadorned access to the person underneath.
A person who, in this case.  Has been brought low.  Whether through her own hubris, a witch's curse, or some combination of the two.
And must now return to the place she once held in her iron grip.
Serving as slave to the one man she once owned heart, mind, and body.

The Queen Of Warriors is an absolutely breathtaking romance. Which is very careful to never let one forget that the romance of which one reads; is one played out by a woman whose first love has been and will always be that of battle.
It is in fact, only due to her battles that she is able to come into contact with those whom she is destined to have relationships with.
And only after her greatest military loss, that her feet are set to her heart's greatest victory.

This tale is the stuff that epics are made of.
Expressed with a fierce brilliance and effortless sophistication that makes the reader hunger for the flavor of its every word.  In much the same way that a starving man would his last meal.
