Review: Vestal Virgin by suzanne tyrpak

5 stars a little too raunchy in places.
Its a look at Rome in the time of Nero. With some real figures and places woven into a story with fiction characters of what the lives where like.
Elissa Rubria Honoria is a vestal  virgin and bound to serve as a virgin for 30 years. She cares for her family and tries to save her brother than her sister from Nero.
Gallus Justinus loves Elissa and has been in the senate and following  Paul teachings of Jesus.
Tells a lot of sex and drugs and things Nero and his court are up to. How he can turn from friends and put them to death in the circus.
Nero once lover Marcus (Elissa brother)he thinks he want to kill him. Than wants Elissa as a lover and she denies him and then wants her little sister.
friends are spys on each other.  Its is an engaging book. I did not want to put it down.
I was given the ebook in exchange for honest review.
