The Centurion's Unlawful Slave by suburbanbeatnik The Centurion's Unlawful Slave by suburbanbeatnik
Here’s a new piece-- The Centurion’s Unlawful Slave. It’s for a romance about a senator’s daughter sold illegally into slavery in the 1rst century BCE, and bought by a handsome centurion, living in a Roman colony in North Africa.  More 1980s classic romance novel inspired goodness!

Greata!  Now I wish someone would write the book, preferably with a fair amount of sex and slavery (but no serious violence).

 Another magnificently MGM-worthy piece; all it needs is dear old Finlay Currie overlooking all this sinfulness as St Peter and whispering "It'll all end in tears" more in sorrow than in Anger.:) (Smile)

Thanks! It's for a historical romance, and it's pretty much explicitly an homage to 1980s paperback covers, like this one-- www.tazran.com/uploads/1215875… -- which were often homages to old films, but sexed WAY up. I don't suppose Finlay Currie as St Peter would approve of graphic sex scenes...

 Which is precisely why you need somebody around to add a delightful aura of forbidden fruit to the whole business, no matter how vanilla it may seem to the more daring amongst the audience.;) (Wink)

 I do keep a few about my person, although one fears they tend to be found at the end of a double-edged sword!:D (Big Grin)

Very nice! Reminds me of classic Hollywood movies about the Romans. :D Kind of that movie-poster style a bit, too, in a really good way.

It's a bit of that, and a lot inspired by 1970s-1980s cover art, especially by artists like Sanjulian. Thank you! :)
