I loved this book even more than the prequel that I complained about the ending of. Now I feel silly but so happy that my heroes got their HEA. The writing in this was sound and interesting and held my attention as the relationship I already loved grew more and more precious in my heart. I have a soft spot for these two beautiful men and I'm sure I'll revisit this book again and again.

Warrior Prince is the sequel of a previous novella by J.P. Bowie, part of a two novellas anthology, Slaves to Love: Erotic Love Stories of Ancient Rome. Shame on me I didn't read the previous book, but the author took pity to the like me, and wrote a brief but comprehensive prologue. And since I'm a total looser with happily ever after, I'm almost happier like that, since now I know that in the first novella Lucius and his lover Callistus were separated, and I probably wouldn't like at all to re ...more

The story begins three years after Lucius and Callistus met on opposing sides of Rome’s campaign for world dominance. They met, fell in love and were parted. However, in the three-year span which followed their parting, Lucius has remained loyal and deeply in love with the handsome warrior that he knew for all too brief a time. Although fairly certain of the fact he and Callistus are unlikely to ever meet again, Lucius remains true to his heart and has no desire to find someone to replace his lo ...more

This is the first J.P. Bowie novel I have read, but judging from “Warrior Prince” [MLR Press, 2009] I conclude that he is an accomplished writer. Certainly his prose is well constructed and also flows along at an easy-to-read pace. Moreover, the characters are quite well developed, and for the most part believable.

Lucius, a middle-class Roman, leads a quite comfortable life except for an unrelenting longing for his departed lover, Callistus. Th

It is safe to say that Lucius and Callistus really come into their own in Warrior Prince. A tale of knowing what you want and going after it even if you know your chances are not good. On the surface, Lucius does not appear to be your typical Roman soldier but when he goes that route to try and find his past love, Callistus, he finds out just what he is capable of. The friendship between Lucius and Flavius leads the lovers on paths that were not expected but definitely amazing to read. I hated t ...more
I really enjoyed this tale of a man trying to reunite with his lover. Though I'm not sure of the historical accuracies, I felt like I was back in time and I enjoyed the battle and struggle. I must also mention this can be read as a standalone, although there is a unhappily ended prequel out there.

J.P. Bowie was born and raised in Aberdeen, Scotland. He wrote his first (unpublished) novel – a science fiction tale of brawny men and brawnier women that made him a little suspect in the eyes of his family for a while.

Leaving home at age eighteen for the bright lights of London, he found himself in the midst of a “diverse and creative crowd” that eventually led him to the performing arts. For th
