Rome, 68 BC:
Caesar has returned to Rome.
Having cut his teeth campaigning in the East, his sites are now set on a new battlefield: the Forum Romanum.
This war will be waged with rhetoric and seduction, weapons Caesar will wield with cunning and ruthlessness. Cuckolding political enemies is but a tactic in a broader strategy: Caesar knows that the key to Rome lies with its noblewomen. Whether the powerful, vindictive Servilia, whose son Brutus deeply resents his mother’s passionate and destructive relationship with Caesar, or his own daughter Julia, Caesar is prepared to sacrifice them all on the altar of his own ambition.
Caesar’s women will make his name, and one of them will seal his fate.
