Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: Rome, 1492. A pope lies dying and the throne of God is left vacant, a prize awarded only to the most virtuous, or the most ruthless. The Borgia family begins its legendary rise, chronicled by an innocent girl who finds herself drawn into their dangerous web. Vivacious Giulia Farnese, who has beauty, wealth, and a handsome young husband, is stunned to discover that her glittering marriage is a sham, and she is to be given as a concubine to Cardinal Borgia: Spaniard, sensualist, candidate for Pope, and passionately in love with her.
