Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and talk about the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read.


The Wolf Den by Elodie Harper
Expected publication: May 13th 2021 by Head of Zeus

Sold by her mother. Enslaved in Pompeii’s brothel. Determined to survive. Her name is Amara. Welcome to the Wolf Den…

Amara was once a beloved daughter, until her father’s death plunged her family into penury. Now she is a slave in Pompeii’s infamous brothel, owned by a man she despises. Sharp, clever and resourceful, Amara is forced to hide her talents. For as a she-wolf, her only value lies in the desire she can stir in others.

But Amara’s spirit is far from broken.

By day, she walks the streets with her fellow she-wolves, finding comfort in the laughter and dreams they share. For the streets of Pompeii are alive with opportunity. Out here, even the lowest slave can secure a reversal in fortune. Amara has learnt that everything in this city has its price. But how much is her freedom going to cost her?

Set in Pompeii’s lupanar, The Wolf Den reimagines the lives of women who have long been overlooked.


Ahhhh I only recently found out about this book but I’m already absolutely dying to get my hands on it. First of all the cover is freaking gorgeous so buying a hardcover will definitely be needed. ? And second, the synopsis is just EVERYTHING to me so I really can’t wait for this book to be released. I feel like there are so little books set in ancient Rome written by women that are releasing these days so I just know it’s gonna be amazing. I’m gonna pre-order it ASAP! ???
