ROBERT BRUTON

Book One, Double-Edged Sword Series

    Flavius Belisariusis a man’s man, a young and brilliant general who stands out amongst the other tyrannical and conniving men in his class. Unlike the others, he seeks the glory and restoration of Rome and needs little for himself.  Or so he thought. 

All at once, he is enamored by a startlingly beautiful and famously promiscuous woman, Antonina.  Despite his awkwardness around women, he wins her heart. But her heart does not stay in the same place for too long. 

     Belisarius is called upon to reconquer an ancient Roman colony. Fueled by the greatness of his mission, he completely loses sight of his wife, until he finds her in the enemy’s cellar tangled in the arms of another man. The scene is more wretched, gorier than any he had seen on the battlefield. And it is one that he cannot shake. Will the great man of Rome, Belisarius General of the East, buckle under a broken heart? Or will he have the courage to stand, even wounded?

"Why have you chosen me? You could have any woman in Constantinople?"

 

”Truthfully, Antonina, I have no time to notice women. I’m uncomfortable with most of them and prefer the company of men. But you are different from the women of the court who spend their days eating, bathing, sleeping, stroking their lapdogs, or spinning and weaving. You are more like one of my soldiers.”

 

“I’m not sure I expected that answer, General,” she said in a deeper voice and laughed. “Procopius says that you cast a spell on me.”

Antonina laughed, “Maybe I did.”

“When?”

“A month ago.”

“Then it didn’t work. Every good witch knows you cannot cast an effective spell during a full moon,” Belisarius pointed to the moon. “You’ll have to try again."

“You can be sure that I will...”
