Iliad, Fall of Troy, and the Aftermath: A 3,200 Year Old Journey
I have discovered how few people know much, if anything, about the era, I have decided to spend some time writing this summary of all that would be pertinent to the series. I hope you look forward to many of the romantic stories to come in this fascinating time in our history.
This is a prelude to a series (each a standalone) I will soon release. The series is chiefly historical romance, and centres on the Bronze Age. Circa 1250 B.C.E. Since I have discovered how few people know much, if anything, about the era, I have decided to spend some time writing this summary of all that would be pertinent to the series. I hope you look forward to many of the romantic stories to come in this fascinating time in our history.
At the end of this narrative, I have added an excerpt of the upcoming series opener, "For The Love of a Trojan Princes." Cassandra has been stolen from her home and family in Troy and swept across the sea at the request of the Achaean king, Nestor. As he is ageing, he is desperate to see his only son and heir to wed and have a family. The Trojan princess is perfect; she has beauty and comes from royalty herself. What Nestor does not count on is her family's retaliation - or Cassandra's aversion to the supposed union.
