Glamorous and predatory, the Borgias fascinated and terrorized 15th-century Renaissance Italy, and Lucrezia Borgia, beloved daughter of the pope, was at the center of the dynasty's ambitions. Slandered as a heartless seductress who lured men to their doom, was she in fact the villainess of legend, or was she trapped in a familial web, forced to choose between loyalty and survival?

Exciting, suspenseful, and heartbreaking. It is hard to imagine really how strong women had to be back then. Great story.

The story telling was so vivid, it was like watching a movie. So moving. The strength of the women. The resilience. I am in awe.
Amazing writing. Amazing story.
