Book 3 of the Herod Chronicles series.
A devout man forced to go to war…
A widowed priest from a wealthy family, Gabriel Onias is appalled at the greed and corruption permeating the priesthood. Unable to stomach another moment of deceit, he turns his back on the only life he’s ever known, shakes the dust of Jerusalem off his sandals, and joins Herod’s war to overthrow the corrupt leaders.
An honorable woman compelled to lie and cheat …
A humble mule train operator, Shoshana Ehud courageously defends her family with nothing but her determination and a wooden club while they travel through war-torn lands. Abandoned by a deceitful, treacherous husband, she despairs of ever knowing the joy of true love. But her conniving husband pushes too far when he involves her family in a scheme to double-cross Herod.
A fated love heals two hearts…
Gabriel’s beliefs are shaken to the core after Shoshana rescues him from a bandit attack. Enthralled by a woman he shouldn’t pursue, Gabriel is determined to confront the Samaritan woman’s husband and demand he grant her a divorce. Fearing for Gabriel’s safety, Shoshana urges the princely man to master the sword rather than fight her battles. When Herod threatens Gabriel’s family and demands he forsake Shoshana for a more advantageous marriage, the soldier priest faces his biggest battle yet in a clash of…Warring Desires.
