Borgia Bride

About the Book

Borgia Bride

A story of romance and courage, of danger and desire, set against the rich terrain of Renaissance Italy, for the readers of The Birth of Venus and The Other Boleyn Girl.

Vivacious Sancha of Aragon arrives in Rome newly wed to a member of the notorious Borgia dynasty. Surrounded by opulence and corruption, she befriends her glamorous and seductive sister-in-law, Lucrezia Borgia, whose jealousy is as legendary as her beauty. Some say she has poisoned her rivals, particularly those to whom her handsome brother Cesare has given his heart. So when Sancha falls under Cesare's irresistible spell, she must hide her secret or lose her life. Caught in their sinister web, she must summon her courage and use her cunning to outwit them at their own game. The Borgia Bride is based on a true figure and weaves real history and fiction to create a tale seething with conspiracy, sexual intrigue, and drama.
