Based off true events tells a story of Roxana, a Bactrian Princess held captive under Alexander the Great. She was always taught to put her country before herself, but is there more to that than what she is told? But as she plans her escape, Roxana captures the heart of the Macedonian King. He adored her in a way she never thought possible. But battles and forces were brewing, and in the midst of it all, she must protect her own sworn enemy. Torn between the love of her country and the undeniable connection with Alexander, Roxana must learn how to live in a world of war and deceit as she is forced to become the mistress to the greatest conqueror of all time. The real question was...who truly owned the heart of Alexander?



*excerpt*

All monsters were once like you, desperate and alone. But they embraced the other monsters inside their head.

Thinking back to my dream with Cassandra, I thought of Alexander's monsters. What made him embrace those monsters? What happened in his past to make so cold, so guarded from all? I wanted to know everything about him in that moment. His fears, his talents, his passions, all that he had to offer. But here he was, pouring his heart out without a single word leaving his lips. In response, I smiled. One brief moment of vulnerability came to light within us both, yet vanished into the darkness once more.
