2016 Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: A Tested Love by Kayla Jameth (71-04-01-2016)

It was extremely interesting to read a story set in an ancient world of Sparta. It let me understand their culture better and, what is more, to see Spartans as people (who had feelings after all) and not only soldiers fixed on killing.

Lured by seductive promises, Andreas risked his life to be with Theron, only to find himself betrayed. Abandoned and alone, Andreas resigns all hope of seeing his fierce warrior again and resumes his life as a helot.

All too aware of the harsh punishment Sparta demands of men who love other men, Theron reluctantly surrenders Andreas in hopes of keeping him safe. The warrior returns to Sparta to embrace his destiny in place of the helot he has grown to see as a man, not just a slave. Cold but honorable duty will be his new lover.

Duty proves to be a jealous lover when Sparta demands the final test of Theron s loyalty. Sent to kill Andreas, Theron must find a way to come to terms with his burning desire for his handsome helot before their forbidden love destroys them both."
