"When shipwreck brings Lord Aeneas to her shores, Queen Dido finds herself first puzzled and then enchanted by the mysterious stranger. Enchantment turns to love, and the two different nations begin to merge into one as she teaches him the ways of her people. When the gods demand Aeneas' return to his mission, how will he respond, and what price is Dido willing to pay to change fate?"


A 5-star review at Smashwords: 


"Ms. Brooke's writing is sensuous and poetic in this retelling of a Virgil's classic romance. What emerges is a remarkable portrait of a woman with a will and sense of duty as strong as any man's, and the complexity of sexual identities and gender roles."
