L.A. Hambly: Pompeia Pulchra

Pompeia Pulchra (L.A. Hambly) is the empire-hopping mercatrix, wife of the Centurion Titus Flavius Crispus. With her fierce Roman "dog of war" Hermione Pugnax, claims to have seen all of Hadrian's Empire from Salamanca to Ecbactana and doubled back to Britannia where she currently lives in a Villa just outside Eboracum.
