Passion, courage and determination burn brightly in Minna's second adventure, from a classic author.

But she has no idea that her actions will condemn Theo to fight a deadly duel - with her life as the prize. Set in a beautifully atmospheric Roman world, this classic story will enchant girls looking for action, adventure and romance.
