Editorial Reviews

About the Author

New York Times bestselling author Lauren Hawkeye is a writer, theatre enthusiast, knitting aficionado, and animal lover who lives in the shadows of the great Rocky Mountains of Alberta, Canada. She's published several novels and novellas with Harlequin and, under the name Lauren Jameson, with New American Library.

More About the Author

Lauren Hawkeye/ Lauren Jameson never imagined that she'd wind up telling stories for a living... though when she looks back, it's easy to see that she's the only one who is surprised. Always "the kid who read all the time", Lauren made up stories about her favorite characters once she'd finished a book... and once spent an entire year narrating her own life internally. No, really. But where she was just plain odd before publication, now she can at least claim to have an artistic temperament.

Lauren lives in the Rocky Mountains of Alberta, Canada with her husband, toddler, pit bull and idiot cat, though they do not live in an igloo, nor do they drive a dogsled. In her nonexistent spare time Lauren can be found knitting (her husband claims that her snobby yarn collection is exorbitant), reading anything she can get her hands on, or sweating her way through spin class. She loves to hear from her readers!

The plot of the story was great.

From the first few pages this books screamed "SPARTACUS!!!!!" to me. I'm not talking Kirk Douglas in a 1960's loin cloth. I'm talking the mcRaunch fest that is Starz Network's Spartacus, the show that started out being campy and laughingly awful and somehow evolved into a gory and pornographic masterpiece. RIP Andy Whitfield. Though Spartacus himself doesn't make an appearance, his activities in overthrowing his Dominus is mentioned and plays a part in Ms. Hawkeye's book.

Alba is the wife of an upper class Roman Dominus, Lucius. When Lucius is presented with a business opportunity he can't refuse, he approaches Alba with an arrangement to help make it happen. She has to get pregnant. Lucius is sterile, so he tells her that he will pick one of his gladiators to do the deed. She's horrified. At first. You see, Alba has had a thing for their star gladiator, Marcus. When he returns her interest in the minimal way he can, she begins to obsess. She has no idea who her husband has chosen, as he comes to her wearing a mask. When her relationship with her husband begins to thaw (and really it had been for awhile), Alba fantasizes about a life with her gladiator, or at this point gladiators, plural. She's figured out her stud-for-hire is either Marcus or their second best, Caius. When Alba realizes that Marcus & Caius are actually an item, she's confused and fascinated. When word of a gladiator revolt reaches her estate, her husband forces her to their sea side home, and sends both Marcus and Caius with her for protection. I'm sure you can imagine where this is going.

To anyone that isn't familiar with Spartacus, the blatant sexuality and gore of My Wicked Gladiators would have shocked you at first. The rest of us would have just shrugged and continued on, popcorn in hand.

Gladiator Delicious!

Holy Smokes Batman! LOL I thought the book cover was hot, (MAN!) that was until I read the story - I mean forget about being just hot, no, I'm talking body quivering with shattering orgasm hot. The story captivated me with the culture of the Roman times between the classes of slavery and how they gained their freedom through fighting which I loved the snippets of action in the book but also how women were treated during this time like they were possessions and in truth you could actually say they were almost slaves themselves in a way since they belong to their husbands and basically had no rights.

The female character Alba" "won my heart over as her eyes opened up to what a cruel and deceitful man her husband "Lucius" really was. She finally woke up to find out what true love really was and I was rooting her on as she found love and pleasure in the arms of the two gladiators Marcus and Caius. I also admired her because of the way she treated all slaves in general with respect and the fact that she finally found the courage to stand up to her husband Lucius and beat him at his own game by turning the tables on him in the end.

What is great about great stories like this is that there is always the evil villians and the heroic hero's who save the day and in this case I have to say that I literally felt like jumping in the story to help kick some serious assss. I didnt know I could actually hate someone so much as I did Lucius right hand slave Justinus - I mean the guy was a sneaky snake who would sell his own mother to get ahead. Another person I hated was the high society rich bitccchhh Hilaria who was a major sluttt and would probably screw her dog in public if given the chance.

Alba has led a fairly happy and luxurious life in ancient Rome with her husband Lucious, but things are about to take a turn. After years of being unable to conceive, the couple has grown apart. Not only this, but she discovers her husband isn't the good man she thought he was. Lucious is unable to give her the children she wants, and as it turns out, he suddenly needs her to get pregnant in order to satisfy a potential patron. A patron who could help them to keep running the expensive Gladiator School that funds their fine lifestyle. The only answer is for Alba to sleep with a gladiator of her husband's choosing who can help her conceive and she isn't given a choice in the matter. Unfortunately, she has already had her eye on one in particular due to the lonliness she had been feeling and now she desires no other. How can she be married to one man, sleep with another on her husband's orders, and pine for the one she wants the most?

From the start I was drawn into the setting. What's not to like about a woman who has the attention of not one but two gladiators in ancient Rome? If only there were more books written in this setting. Despite it being more along the lines of erotica than romance, it does have a love story and a plot. Neither were as deep as you might find in some novels, but there was enough that it wasn't all lust-filled scenes. Readers will get a taste of the culture, history and lifestyles from this period, along with some of the politics and violence. It should be noted that those who are more bashful and conservative should stay away. There are m/m, m/f, m/f/m, and a brief f/f scene, along with some exhibition. I thought it was very well done, but we all have our own reading preferences to consider.
