A Rose Among the Ruins
After almost a generation of war, peace has come at last through the political marriage of a Mordyn princess to the prince of Ageselm. While escorting the bride, comrades-in-arms Rhicer and Kanath inadvertently drink a love potion intended for the newlyweds—and find themselves dealing with newfound desire for one another. As they struggle with their growing connection in a culture that despises same-sex love, Rhicer and Kanath face a terrible decision: give in to the social mores of their time and abandon love or answer the call of their hearts and leave Ageselm forever.
A Timeless Dreams title: While reaction to same-sex relationships throughout time and across cultures has not always been positive, these stories celebrate M/M love in a manner that may address, minimize, or ignore historical stigma.

I enjoyed reading A Rose Among the Ruins. While it could be construed as a cautionary tale with a moral of “See what happens when you take things that don’t belong to you?” it is also an endearing love story... And isn’t that what we want to see in a romance, that love conquers all? 4 of 5 stars BD Whitney @ Bookwenches
