Florentine silk merchant Giovanni Pietro d'Angelo and his wife want nothing more than to marry their daughters to wealthy men of distinction. But when their son is implicated in a tragic accident, it is their eldest daughter, Bianca, who must pay the price - by marrying the powerful and debauched Sebastiano Rovere in exchange for his silence. Bianca flees the cruel union and seeks shelter in a seaside villa where she discovers the possibility of love at last. But Florentine society will never approve of the man she's chosen- Prince Amir, grandson of Mehmet the Conqueror. Two passionate lovers. Two different worlds determined to keep them apart. 'Bertrice Small has long been a favorite among many erotic historical readers and I firmly believe she'll hold the title of the 'reigning queen' for many years to come.' Romance Junkies 'Exquisite historical detail brings every moment vividly to life.' Publishers Weekly 'A Renaissance romance fraught with conflicting family dynamics and ruthless dangers!...... The plotting is spellbinding . . . intriguing.' Fresh Fiction
