“Donum, by Maxime Jaz, tells the tale of a Roman general and the abused slave he is gifted and falls for. It’s a tale filled with romance, action, drama, and violence. “
For in a life of freedom, one can be trapped without relief. For in a life of servitude, one can find unexpected freedom.

Coming home with his legion, Commander Marius receives an unexpected gift when he stops at a countryside noble’s estate for a celebration party. That gift is Kyle, a young Celt, captured by the Romans years ago, and used for pleasure by his callous owner.
Marius quickly takes Kyle to Rome, utterly clueless about what to do with him. To Marius’ dismay, the young Celt is terrified, even after having escaped his cruel owner.
In truth, Kyle doesn’t know what to expect from Marius, either.
Despite all odds, including Marius’ flaming temper and unpredictable nature, and Kyle’s haunting past affecting his every waking moment, love blooms between the two men who find themselves up against the scheming nobles of Rome, and Marius’ inevitable duties to his ambitious father, and conniving family.
As they begin to fall deeper and deeper in love, even greater obstacles block their path, leading to some desperate decisions. Can Marius’ and Kyle’s love survive despite the odds against them? Or will the might of Rome grind them into oblivion?

For in a life of freedom, one can be trapped without relief. For in a life of servitude, one can find unexpected freedom.

Please note: This book’s story is set in Ancient Rome, loosely based on the times during Trajan’s reign. However, the emperor and all the characters are fictitious, and do not reflect real historical events of those times.
“Donum” is not a historical fiction, but rather a queer romance set in a historical setting, depicting fictitious events.
The language of the book does not reflect the language used during ancient times.
Roman names have sometimes been adapted to fit the story, and some of them are purely fictional.
