In Roman Britain, Verluccus, a native boy, is enslaved and made to serve Gaius Marcius, Roman child. He runs away but is recaptured as a man fighting amongst a gang of renegades. Recalcitrant and obdurate at first, he eventually succumbs to serve Gaius; but while Gaius is obsessed with Verluccus, Verluccus falls in love with his master’s sister, Gaia, and she with him.

M. E. Taylor says “Brothers” (published by AuthorHouse UK) was inspired by the Roman archaeology of Britain. Like many natives of Gloucestershire, England, Taylor has long been familiar with the Roman remains in the county. “Roman Archaeology is very popular in Britain and the excavations of Roman sites always arouses much interest,” she says.

An excerpt from “Brothers”:
The boy was taller than he had expected. He must be – what, twelve? At the very least twelve, a good four years older than Gaius. And sullen too, scowling and defiant – not at all the slave for his precious child. Quite unsuitable. Dangerous, most probably. What had possessed his son to choose this creature?
