Product description

Product Description

An imperial marriage is a complicated affair.
She faced him once again, this time with hate in her eyes. “What about all your slave boys? Are they not satisfying enough? Is your appetite so voracious you need to start in on the women of the imperial household?” She spat in his direction.
Incensed by her vituperation, Hadrian recoiled to strike her. He flinched, stopping himself, knowing abundantly well that he would be admonished harshly…

It is said theirs was a loveless union.
He was vain and arrogant, his passion for a youth one of the most celebrated romances in history. She was moody, difficult, and aborted his heir to prevent harming the human race.

And yet, she left her home and followed him to the ends of the Empire, from Britannia to Egypt. He died only months after her, a crushed, broken-hearted man.

This is the story of Hadrian and Sabina.
Divided into four parts, following four love affairs – including that of Hadrian and his beloved Antinous – Hadrian and Sabina: A Love Story offers a new interpretation of the relationship between the Roman emperor and his wife, and new insights into 2nd-century imperial politics. Darkly sensual and intensely historical, Hadrian and Sabina features historical personages as well as entirely fictional characters, plus has a touch of mysticism and the paranormal with appearances by ghosts and goddesses, priests and astrologers.

1.0 out of 5 stars I Am Not Pleased. 25 January 2014
By Landers68 - Published on

I won't be scathing, since sex and scandal in any period will always be interesting to some people, but I will say I did not feel the characters were in any sense real, mature, complex or interesting (despite all the sex going on). The real Hadrian was a multi-dimensional man, a lover of beauty and the arts, a real leader, probably the best emperor Rome has ever had... and yet none of that comes across in this book. In short, I'm sorry this book did not meet my expectations at all.

5.0 out of 5 stars I loved this book! 20 September 2015
By Kimberly Anne - Published on
I have read other books by Regina Kammer and I admire her mastery of words and storytelling. I'm not a history aficionado so it was fascinating to delve into the time period through Regina's knowledge as she was a long time art historian and librarian with an authentic mastery of facts, dates and events. I was literally transported into a world that I had previously not known existed and on a visceral level I I feel like I experienced Hadrian and Sabina's journey and love through their own eyes. Plus the antagonist kept me on the edge of my seat, oh how I hated him!!!! And... it's spicy, there's no doubt about that. The spice lends to the character's involvement and believability; to their true connection; their strengths and weaknesses. I laughed and I cried, which in itself is a huge author's accomplishment. Twisty, turny, spicy fun! 2 thumbs up, 5 stars. Love, Love, Love!!!
