Raised as courtesan to wealthy and powerful men, Tessa of Delos serves at the whim of her current patron, the politician Glaucas. After ten years with him, Tessa has abandoned all desire for freedom or love, choosing instead to lock her heart away. But when Glaucas is violently killed in his own home, Tessa grasps at a fragile hope. Only she knows of his death. If she can keep it a secret for long enough, she can escape.

Tessa throws herself on the mercy of the Greek god Helios but finds instead unlikely allies in Nikos, a Greek slave, and Simeon, Glaucas’ Jewish head servant. As Simeon introduces her to a God unlike any she has ever known, and Nikos begins to stir feelings she had thought long dead, Tessa fights to keep her heart protected. As an assassination plot comes to light, Tessa must battle for her own freedom—and for those to whom she has begun to open her heart—as forces collide that shatter the island’s peace.

    " Adequate plot, language and depiction of the time/place, but I thought the main character's growth was too fast and pat to be really believable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Kayley | 2/5/2014

    " I have always loved history, and I found this to not only be a fascinating story but greatly revealing as to this ancient culture. I'd never heard of a hetaeira before I read this book and enjoyed learning for the first time many things about ancient Rhodes. I love the character of Tessa, finding her and her struggles very real and personal. T.L. Higley weaved the gospel very effectively throughout the story. It's a great beginning to the series. "
