    Summary

    Nico blinks. “I cannot help what I am. I won’t apologize.”

    “Of course not,” Jo corrects, angry on his behalf. “None of this is your fault. None of it is mine, either. We’re disposable, you and I. To these people. But not to one another.” 

    .

    Rome, First Century BC. Jovilius "Jo", famed gladiator, is a force to be reckoned with in the arena. Nicknamed Invictus for his prowess and constitution, he is able to catch the eye of the Emperor with ease. For his successive victories he is rewarded a night with the Emperor's concubinus - the kindhearted yet sharp-tongued Nico - and the two men discover they have much more in common then they seem to realize.

    But Jo is only a mere couple of wins away from affording total freedom. And the more time he spends with Nico, the less he can picture a future without him.

    Summary

    In all senses but the literal, Nicky is lost. In an attempt to find himself again, he leaves Italy for a year of solitude in the US. Soon, he finds a safe harbor in the local museum, a place where he can think and find rest. A place where he one day meets an intriguing pianist by the name of Joe. It is Joe who rekindles Nicky’s dream of becoming a cellist he had been forced to cast aside, and it is Joe who stands by his side all the way to achieving it. But most of all, it is with Joe that Nicky finds everything he didn’t know he was looking for and more.
