By Mimi L. Thompson

Historical fiction, Romance, New adult fiction, Women's fiction | eBook


FREE on Kindle Unlimited. Coming-of-age in an age of depravity in the Malibu of the Ancient World. Bridget Jones Diary and Sophie's World meet Ben Hur — on the beach. A gender-bending, genre-bending romp through the Bay of Naples in the first century BC. Join Phoebe, Julia and Claudia in their search for true love amid the mad world of the Roman aristocracy. . . Parties and sex, of course, but also Epicurean philosophers, fascist politicians, international businessmen, billionaire philanthropists, celebrity sportsmen and the Naples mafia. And Catullus' most famous girlfriend. Expect excitement and mayhem, tears and laughter. And always the unexpected twist: in Baiae, nothing is ever as it seems. And nobody is who they claim to be. . . Worse still, these statistics will give even the most sober observer cause for concern that Rome wasn't what it used to be. . . Free on Smashwords is a sample from Mimi L. Thompson's next book "Golden Horse" a modern-day adaption from the original unexpurgated Latin of Lucius Apuleius’ scandalously provocative, politically incorrect, timeless classic "Asinus Aureus". The basic premise, a man turned into an animal (observing the cruel wicked world from that challenging persepctive), remains the same, as do the various sub-plots often extreme in today’s PC world. Then, after finally escaping life in equine hell, the once successful lawyer turns his talents to that of animal rights activist. This book will rock you.

By Z. C. Esterson on 1 May 2016, Verified Purchase. "Unbelievably erudite, funny, sexy and stylish. Mimi Thompson can spin a classical character or situation as immediately, contemporaneously recognizable, with an ease that is almost Sibylline. Forget J. K. Rowling, this is where the real magic is."
