    About "Lydia Pax"

    1. Lydia Pax

      I love to write stories featuring hot alpha badasses falling in love with strong, smart women in the midst of a ton of excitement, turmoil, and intrigue Life is strange, beautiful, and wonderful, but sometimes it can be a little too boring My stories spice the day up with enough heat to need a cold drink nearby as you read, and they always close with a HEA.

    1. Thank you for choosing me to review this wonderful novel for free, Lydia Pax I probably would ve never found it without you.Don t judge if this review is too short for you, i don t actually care for you opinion.Anyway.This book was written wonderfully I ll admit i was a bit confused with all this us ending words, like Ludus, etc, even with me being of Latin origin But in the end it payed off, i feel smarter now And now I m even fascinated with Latin and mythology Also, i have yet to read a book [...]


    2. 3.5 Fortune Stars My first book by Lydia Pax was a wonderful surprise I love a good historical romance and I haven t read one set in ancient Rome in a long while Aeliana and Caius story was heartwarming and beautiful despite their brutal and savage beginnings Aeliana is a medicae She takes care of the gladiators when they get hurt Her father sold her into slavery so that she could learn this skil, but she s come to hate gladiators and everything they stand for She may treat their injuries but sh [...]


    3.

    4. A beautiful story, full of exciting action, drama and romance The setting painted a smile on my face as it reminded me of those wonderful times watching the Spartacus TV series Bloody good times o With knowledge and ease, the author vividly describes the ludus, a place to train gladiators in Ancient Roman times, their daily discipline, their gritty and sometimes brotherly interaction with each other, and the impending doom of death in the arena or glory to their names I really enjoyed myself rev [...]


    5. I received a free copy of this in exchange for a review This was a fun story The lives of slaves in the Roman Empire were a bit romanticised, some moments that weren t quite believable, and the villain of the story is a little over the top but it was definitely a page turner There were a lot of rich little side details like Chloe s stitches, Conall s prank, and Flamma s redemption that enriched the main story between Caius and Aeliana.


    6. Thank you to the author for having kindly provided me an ARC of this book for an honest review Usually, I don t read stories about gladiators as they can be harsh with violence and I m not fond of that So, I started to read this book with some hesitation but I shouldn t have This book is truly great, with the just amount of violence, of suspense, of sensuality and of love.The historical part is amazingly told, greatly detailed, allowing us to merge fully in the background, to enjoy wholeheartedl [...]


    7. 3.5 stars I d like to thank the author for providing me an ARC of this book, in exchange for my honest review Historical romance is quickly becoming one of my favorite genres I can t seem to stop reading it ever since I started back in April However, I m always after a bit variety in terms of when and where the book is set So of course when the author graciously offered me a copy of this story which took place in ancient Rome and followed a gladiator, I was almost destined to accept This story [...]


    8. I received a free ARC for an honest review of this book Hot gladiators Historical romance Elaborate fight scenes This book seemed right up my alley Unfortunately, I found that it fell a bit flat for me Let s talk about the main characters.Caius hero A hot former slave scorned by Fortune after ending a man s life in the arena, even though he promised that man s brother he wouldn t He lost his wife to childbirth that same day but continued to care for his daughter until his money ran out, forcing [...]


    9. Thank you for the advanced copy, Lydia In exchange for an honest review My historical romance reads have so far been limited to Victorian England, so this was uncharted waters, so to speak While some of the terminology may seem new the classification of gladiators, the names of the professions, the names themselves , the book doesn t lack on expounding what these are.The highlight of the book for me was how it depicted arena life, and the people who basically kept it running, and the romance was [...]


    10. An ARC of Heart of the Gladiator by Lydia Pax was generously provided to me via the publisher in exchange of honest review.I ve never actually read a book about gladiator Watched the movies, sure I don t really know about the background story and the history of it, that s why at first I was a bit overwhelmed with all of the information the author gave It was kind of hard for me to catch up, especially with all those new terms and names But then, the plot goes on beautifully and I enjoyed it Aeli [...]

    12. An intriguing story.This was a great read that truly brought the entire world of the Roman gladiator to life The setting details, interesting characters, and steamy romance made this hard to put down I definitely recommend it


    13. I love a good period piece A story with some historical structure to it This certainly fit the bill Heart of the Gladiator had it all Exciting fight scenes, back stabbing liars, mystery and mayhem and some romance to spice things up.Our leading lady, Aeliana, is a woman living in a man s world Her father sold her into servitude in order for her to learn the skills of a medicae She works in a ludus, which is a training school for gladiators This is not something that she is entirely thrilled abou [...]


    14. This is a book about a gladiator and a Healer The gladiator has sold himself back into slavery while our Healer is a woman with very little options in a world ruled by men Sold by her father to the arena she dreams of being a free woman and chosing the life she wants.It is a well researched book which is always appreciated when people set their novel in the past And when I say well researched I mean it as my minor is Ancient History A really good look at the life of the gladiators and slaves tho [...]

    16. I really enjoyed this book I wasn t sure what to expect as I d never heard of this author I was given an advance copy of book for an honest review The story was very compelling I found the Hero and heroine both quite likable, relatable characters And the villians quite hateable they definitely added to the story, the main villian in particular But most of all I enjoy a romance where I can really like the H and h.I knew nothing of gladiators or ancient Rome so it was also very educational to me T [...]


    17. Aeliana had tried to please her father for so long, but he never wanted a daughter and only praised his son, but he was dead now from a stupid bar fight and died in her arms as she didn t know what to do to save him With her brother s death, her father blamed her as if it was her fault and sold her as a slave to be trained as a medica to patch up gladiators How she loathed the brutality of it all and she dreamed of opening her own office once she earned her freedomCaius had earned his freedom an [...]


    18. MMA, Roman styleHeart of the Gladiator is like a Roman version of an MMA training camp, but the fighters can t leave and sometimes they battle tigers.Gladiator Caius and team doctor Aeliana realize they have to fight for than glory They ll do anything for love and family, and that s a lot, considering the lady of the house acts like a Roman JR Ewing, who has less scruples and owns slaves not oil wells.It took a bit for me to get into the book, mostly because I was expecting a shorter get in get [...]


    19. Rugged men in armor, shouting for a fight with swords and shields in a arena that could be life or death May it be against man itself or a beast, if your not quick enough you will die.Aleliana is a healer of sorts Who helps the gladiators when they get injured for the stupidity that they brought upon themselves That is opinion of the arena games that go on in Rome But she is just a slave and her opinion doesn t matter much in that field as it does in medical needs to the gladiators she cares for [...]


    20. I really enjoyed this book that looked into the lives and times of gladiators Aeliana is sold into slavery to learn the medical trade and she is very good at her job Her work is to treat gladiators and it is a very rough sport I like how strong she is, how determined she is to get through her service and work on her dreams once she is freed She dislikes those gladiators but when Caius catches her eye, she is hooked, and so was I He s a former champion that comes back to the arena to be able to p [...]


    21. This has to be the best book I ve read in quite some time, Lydia Pax weaves this story with the grace, gore and passion of that time, allowing you to feel for the characters Aeliana is a medicae of a ludus of gladiators, though not what she would have chosen but when you are a slave choices aren t within reach, but maybe one day She first meets Caius in the marketplace when a vendor tried to take advantage of her He thought he was helping but found out this small woman was than meets the eye Wi [...]


    22. I received this for my honest review, this is a story about the gladiator Caius and the slave Aeliana, the struggles they go through and how their passion builds amongst the brutal life they live is a true historical love story with twists and suspense Caius earned his freedom but after bringing his daughter up for three years he has to return to earn money for her upbringing, he leaves her with his sister and her family thinking this is the best way to do it and where he meets Aeliana the medic [...]


    23. This is an incredible book and superbly written You are instantly drawn in and captivated by the imagery and storyline.I knew I would love the book at this paragraph Caius had good control of his breath More than a dozen years in the arena had taught him the value of keeping his head cool even in the most riotous of situations, when a man came after you with a weapon and the crowd roared for blood His breath was not ever taken away It was measured, cool, and ever flowing And yet when he had seen [...]


    24. I would rate the story 4.5 out of 5I find stories about gladiators fascinating and I have read quite a few over the years This is one of the best that I have read The chemistrybetween Caius the gladiator and Aeliana the medica is well written The author did an amazing job portraying the life of a gladiator The hardships, the brutaility, the political influence, acceptance and the hope for freedom are all woven into the pages.I would highly recommend this story and look forward to reading the nex [...]


    25. It was a well written book, but seriously lacking in the romance department 75% of the book was written to set up the plot and characters, the remaining 25% there were too many conflicts presented and resolved for it to leave any room for the main characters Honestly I can only think of 1 scene that could be considered moderately romantic Ms Pax is a talented writer with beautiful prose She needs to work on her story telling skillsC for Review.


    26. Aeliana was sold into slavery by her father and it is her job to treat the injured gladiators Caius comes back to fight in the arena to get his family some money Aeliana tries to deny what she feels for Caius but the she learns about him the she cares for him Will his past come back to haunt them both Great read The story is fast paced and suspenseful with plenty of action and drama I loved it


    27. This a great book and the story line and plot where good This is my first book by Lydia Pax and I wasn t disappointed This takes you back in time to the roman era What Aeliana father did was not right What Caius did was unstopped love for his family I received a copy of this story in exchange for an honest review.


    28. I got this in exchange of an honest review, I loved the story, there was a lot of love care and sacrifices made for their loved ones and it was a new plot for me to read for a Gladiator I was surprised in certain areas but it was great charming end and great caring real characters you can relate to in every century


    29. Very impressed with the language of the time and the research this must have taken And to see a different viewpoint of the gladiators To get to know some as individuals Loved the HEA and really looking forward to the next book in series.
