Lucrezia Borgia - no woman could match her appetites, few men could satisfy them.

The wickedest woman who ever loved.

Sensual... corrupt... that was the court of Renaissance Italy. And that, too, was Lucrezia Borgia - a woman of infinite guile and indiscriminate passion, whose affairs led her from page boy to prince... and to a reputation called shocking even in a land not easily shocked.

Yet no matter how often she strayed, Lucrezia remained faithful - in her special fashion - to the one man she had sworn would be hers.

A gripping historical romance from the 100-million-copy bestselling Queen of Romance, first published in 1953, and available now for the first time in eBook.
