Two things to note before you pick this one up--and you should pick this one up.
First, the idioms used by Roman soldiers sometimes make them sound like Brits.
Secondly, it might take you a while to figure out who is who because Ms. Schwab constantly refers to the major characters by first names, surnames, and possible nicknames.
I would also have preferred a better explanation of what each army unit was and how they were organized (charts would do).
These quibbles are what slowed me down in an otherwise heart-pounding read that is as historically accurate as you can get--if that doesn't include a reticent, but deeply affecting, MM romance.
The romance takes a while to get going after many bloody battles and soul-searching on the part of both men. But when Florius and Lucius finally come together, it is as explosive--and touching--as any historical MM romance can be.
I will look at the other books in this series because this was so delicious

Loved this Roman Empire romance!Reviewed in the United States on 29 August 2018
The Centurion's Choice has everything I've come to expect and enjoy about this author's work: amazing attention to detail (here, immersive settings in wartime during the Roman Empire), no angst, tangible emotions and characters that pull at my heartstrings. All historical romances I've read have happened in the 1800's and later, so this first foray into the Roman Empire and early A.D. was beyond interesting.
Excellent historical gay romanceReviewed in the United States on 4 January 2017
Excellent historical romance set in ancient Rome. The leads are well written and their romance compelling as it slowly develops over time. Traditional MM romance readers may wish it was a tad more erotic but I thought it fit the leads. Now if only this author would write more MM historical!
