In this riveting tale of erotic historical fiction, intrigue, action, love, romance, and sex come together to form a plot that will carry readers into the past and keep them guessing from beginning to end. In 1862, Pope Pius IX, attempts to reverse the decline of Christianity in the Middle East. Assembling a round table with three of his archbishops, he labels the secret group, the “Alliance for a Christian Engineered Society” (ACES). Their objective is to eliminate the head priest of the Zoroastrians in India and guide the lost sheep to salvation. The society finds a potential assassin in a jail cell in Mexico, Immanuel Cortez Esteban, otherwise known as the ICE man. ICE trains under Maria Sanchez, and the two fall in love before sailing to Bombay. Can the ACES pull off such an ambitious mission? Will someone betray the team? Do Maria and ICE survive? What is a Parsi? Adults of all ages will love this first installment of what is sure to be an erotic, entertaining, and educational epic trilogy.
