Her blood contains a hormone that make her a superhuman, though this gets her into trouble when she becomes hunted for the very hormone that gives her these abilities.
Empress of the Seven Hills by Kate Quinn. Her third book about ancient Rome (the other two are related). She has a wonderful storytelling style, making the Roman people seem very alive and very real. Mistress of Rome should be read first, although you can still read this as a standalone.
