Gaius and Achilles is a gay historical romance set in Late Republican Rome, concerning the choices facing Achilles, a young aristocrat from Paphos whose life is thrown into confusion when he is captured by pirates and separated from his lover Hippothous.
He finds himself the slave of decadent Roman poet Gaius Manlius Torquatus, a sensitive soul, who must struggle with the conflicting demands and desires of his nature.
Achilles’ radical change in status from respected citizen to personal property forces him to question and redefine his threatened sense of self and ultimately to question what it is to be free.
Meanwhile, his lover Hippothous is facing his own perilous adventures and is determined to find and save Achilles at any cost.
