Summary
Renowned for her bright and disciplined way with Renaissance Italy, New York Times best-selling novelist Dunant again visits the Borgias, to whom she recently paid court in Blood and Beauty. As Cesare ruthlessly seeks to unite all of Italy's city-states under Borgia control, Florence counters by sending one Niccolo Machiavelli to Rome as envoy and Lucrezia learns the family business of big-stakes political manoeuvring
Summary
When his cold and treacherous son, Cesare, grows out of control, Pope Alexander VI struggles to balance the demands of his thrice-married daughter and becomes a pawn in the schemes of her latest paramour before the family's increasing sovereignty compels Rome to send envoy spies to their Italian city-state region
