One powerful family holds a city, a faith, and a woman in
its graspâ€”from the national bestselling author of
Daughters of Rome and Mistress of
Rome, 1492. The Holy City is
drenched with blood and teeming with secrets. A pope lies
dying and the throne of God is left vacant, a prize awarded
only to the most virtuousâ€”or the most ruthless. The Borgia
family begins its legendary rise, chronicled by an innocent
girl who finds herself drawn into their dangerous webâ€¦
Vivacious Giulia Farnese has floor-length golden hair and
the world at her feet: beauty, wealth, and a handsome young
husband. But she is stunned to discover that her glittering
marriage is a sham, and she is to be given as a concubine to
the ruthless, charismatic Cardinal Borgia: Spaniard,
sensualist, candidate for Popeâ€”and passionately in love with
Two trusted companions will follow her into the Pope's
shadowy harem: Leonello, a cynical bodyguard bent on bloody
revenge against a mysterious killer, and Carmelina, a fiery
cook with a past full of secrets. But as corruption thickens
in the Vatican and the enemies begin to circle, Giulia and
her friends will need all their wits to survive in the world
of the Borgias.
