Jerrica's Regency England...

Hi. My name is Jerrica Knight-Catania. You may have heard my name sometime in the last 3 or so years. Or you may have no earthly clue who I am. The latter is probably more likely. I’ve never been a NYT Best Seller…or even a USA Today Best Seller. I’ve never won any major contests. No monuments have been erected in my likeness 😉 I do put myself out there on social media, and I have been a best seller in every major ebook venue world wide. Yet I still show up to romance conferences and get things like, “Ummmm…I think I may have heard your name before??? What is it again?”

But here’s the thing. Fame is awesome, I’m sure. Having people know your name and start book clubs because they just HAD to talk about your works with other people is probably great. But for me, being able…

Client Announcement: The Release of GODS AND GLADIATORS by Jaye Shields

GOD AND GLADIATORS by Jaye Shields

I am pleased and proud to announce the release of one of my client’s amazing new release – GODS AND GLADIATORS, an ancient world historical romance by Jaye Shields.

I was fortunate enough to be the editor of this wonderful story about Olympian gods playing games with humans in the Roman Coliseum.

If you love the ancient world, mythology, and romance then you must read GODS AND GLADIATORS by Jaye Shields. I watched this story grow and refine as I assisted her in editing but it was Jaye, and Jaye alone, that brought Ares and Eirana’s story to life.

Blurb for GODS AND GLADIATORS:

When the Olympian Gods contest that the Romans aren’t nearly as mighty as they think they are, Ares, the God of War, is the first one to prove it by spending a month as a Roman. Ares arrives in Rome as a Gladiator, thrilled to have a human body in which to kick some ass. His first chance at Gladiator glory is to reenact the slaughter of the Sabines but when Ares spots a beautiful slave with eyes blazing with courage, he refuses to tear through the defenseless prisoners. 


Eirana of the Gauls is only one of hundreds of women taken as slaves by the Romans. Weaponless and starved for days, she’s forced into the coliseum to be symbolically massacred. She’s seen the infamous Gladiators in action enough to know there will be no mercy. But then something incredible happens, one Gladiator chooses to protect the defenseless women. He claims to be a God, but he bleeds just like a human. 


Eirana is the most incredible being Ares has ever seen. With only a month in the human realm, the God refuses to leave until knowing she is safe. But if he can conquer the Romans keeping her as a slave, will his heart still be able to let her go?

Available now for Kindle at Amazon.
