The Course of Honour

Lindsey Davis: The Course of Honour (USA 2009)

From the Publisher:
In ancient Rome, ambitious citizens who aspired to political power, to become one of the ruling elite -- a senator, had to follow what was known as "The Course of Honor". This course had only one unbreakable rule: a senator is forbidden to marry a slave, even a freed slave. When the soldier Vespasian meets an interesting girl in the imperial palace, he doesn't know she is a slave in the household of the imperial family. But he is inexorably drawn in by her intelligence and charisma. Yet as Vespasian slowly rises from near-obscurity and as emperor after emperor plays out their own deadly, seductive games of lust and conquest, the future is something no one could imagine. No one could believe that a country-born army man might win the throne -- no one, that is, except a slave girl who, with the future Emperor, begins a daring course of honor of her own.

Lindsey Davis: The Course of Honor (USA 2003)

From the Publisher:
For Romans, the career path to become a senator - "The Course of Honor" - is often strewn with betrayal and murder. But it has one unbreakable rule: A Roman senator cannot marry a slave, even a freed one. Caenis, a slave in the household of the mother of the emperor, Vespasian, who meets this young girl cooking in the imperial palace, soon gives her both his appetites and his soul. Yet Vespasian is destined for the imperial throne. And in a city of a thousand dark alleys and sybaritic feasts where rivals are dispatched with poison, Caenis is forbidden fruit, dangerous to know, and fatal to pursue... unless two lovers can somehow create a daring course of honor of their own.
