    I know this is black lace... but what are my chances of a HEA...
    The historically accurate part leads me to think no chance on HEA.
    An historically accurate, erotic romance set in Pompeii during Roman times involving two lovers, an angry general, fighting gladiators, and a Dionysian cult, with a rumbling volcano as backdrop.

    I think I have read one black lace other than Emma Holly but hell if I can remember what it was called. Might be time to read another.

    cover and summary from blacklace site
    After a failed uprising in Brittania, Sirona, a princess of the Iceni, and her lover, Taranis, are taken to Pompeii.

    The city is a symbol of the power and wealth of the Romans, with its large forum, paved streets and luxurious villas. Taranis is sold as a slave to a rich Roman lady, who wants him for her bed, and Sirona is taken to the home of a lecherous senator, who is charged with her care until his stepson, General Lucius Flavius, returns home.

    Flavius rescues her from the corrupt household and takes her to his villa outside the city. There, Sirona soon succumbs to his charms. However, with the help of the general's sister, Taranis and Sirona are briefly united but the senator discovers their deception and the situation takes a turn for the worst.

    Sirona must escape from the clutches of the followers of the erotic cult of the Dionysis, while Taranis must fight for his life as a gladiator in the arena. Meanwhile, beneath Mount Vesuvius, there are forces gathering that even the power of the Romans cannot control.
