**DOUBLE REVIEW** ~ When in Rome (An Unexpected Vacation, book 1 and The Emperor’s Dungeon, book 2), by Jessica Nyman

Erotic Time Slip Fantasy

18+/Adult Read

I could not resist reviewing the first two instalments of When in Rome, an erotic time slip tale, written by Jessica Nyman. Historical erotica and erotic romance are after all amongst my favourite reads and I just love tales of Ancient Romans! I found both instalments to be a fun and erotic take on what happens when a 21st century girl meets one of Rome’s most notorious emperors.

Fellow history geeks take note: On the subject of infamous characters from history, do pop over to the author’s blog where she has a fascinating post about the truth and lies about the Roman emperor featured in this series. I’ve recently been immersing myself in the literature separating truth from fiction in the case of Richard III, and I just love debates such as this .

Jessica Nyman 1A young and geeky college girl wins a trip to Rome and while visiting the ancient ruins, she gets transported two thousand years back by a mysterious magic artifact. She is immediately seized by the city guards and brought before the most notorious emperor Rome had ever known. She’s in for a big surprise and some hot, steamy, action beyond her wildest dreams.

When In Rome Vol 1: An Unexpected Vacation is the first part of an erotic romance serial short stories exploring the lifestyle of ancient Rome from the eyes of a twenty first century college girl. Approximately 7000 words.

My Review

A Fun Erotic Read ****

In An Unexpected Vacation, the heroine, a college student, wins a weekend in Rome, the eternal city. After purchasing a silver locket from an antique shop she visits the Palatine Hill and finds herself magically transported back 2000 years into Rome’s past… It is there she finds herself at the court of, wait for it, the infamous emperor Caligula, who wields the power of life and death over all his subjects……

Her terror swiftly turns to passion as she becomes seduced by this man whose heart does not appear to be as black as history has painted him. Caligula is keen to instruct this strange barbarian into his ways. What follows is a fun and erotic foray into Ancient Rome and in particular the sexual mores of its young and extremely virile emperor which the heroine is more than happy to participate in – cue a number of sizzling scenes of a carnal nature!

Jessica Nyman packs a lot into this short read and I was eager to find out what happens in the next instalment!

My Review

Secrets Will Out! ****

The heroine finds herself unexpectedly returned back to her own time by magic she does not fully comprehend. She is desperate to return to her lover Caligula and seeks high and low for an explanation of how to invoke the magical powers of the locket which she knows is responsible for her journey to and from the past. When she does return however it is to a Caligula who is not totally happy with her disappearance and who whisks her away to his dungeon to force her to spill her secrets and satisfy his lust….

Our heroine is desperate to prevent history repeating herself with regards to Caligula’s future yet she also has to wrestle with the thorny issue of ensuring that her very presence in Ancient Rome do not change the future.

As with the first instalment, I hugely enjoyed this read and I am eager to see how this series pans out.
