Beautiful One

An LGBT Historical Romance
A novel by

In Athens, the Great Dionysia festival rouses citizens with wine, song, theater, and debauchery. Politics and scandal paint deep shadows across the portrait of the city, and wolves in sheep's clothing roam the streets and the stage.

Shy Kallistos faces Sophocles in the theater competition, play for play against the celebrated master. Success beckons like a siren's song, but the dark allure and smoldering desire for a new acquaintance rouse feelings Kallistos never imagined he'd feel.

Alexios spent many cold nights singing to the sheep and stars before traveling to Athens to help Sophocles. He longs to feel the breath of audience applause on his face and will do anything to become a famous actor. Now, losing his heart to the competition forces him to make difficult choices that may jeopardize his lifelong dreams.

Of Minotaur masks and men... where is life truly lived? On the stage or in the heart?
