    Summary

    Rodrigo Borgia was 45 when he became famously known as the King of New York. After enough corporate takeovers they started calling Cesare The Prince.

    The media, their competitors, their friends, they all call the Borgias a cabal of ruthless, greedy, lying, ambitious, opportunistic, nepotistic, social climbers with no conscience, no mercy, and no scruples to be found.

    In some ways, they’re not wrong.

    Summary

    She’s just in the bath when she hears the news, her body covered in pink, caramel scented bubbles, her hair piled atop her head like an ice cream cone. There’s a shout from her brother Juan, and then everyone is gasping, yelling, and shrieking outside of the steamy walls of her bathroom.
    Her mother cracks open the door, her face displaying a myriad of emotions.
    “Lucrezia, it’s happened. He’s died. The Reverend has died.”

    Summary

    Consuelo Borgia has loved her cousin Cesare all her life. Though her parents returned to Spain when she was eight, she has not forgotten him, she is still his little puppy, idolizing him. She does not know how to be any other way. But she is eighteen now, and a widow. She returns to her family after her husband dies, not knowing quite what to do. She engages in an affair with a local smith, but must break it off when her family finds out. Her family are trying to pressure her into re-marrying, but since she will not give in to their demands, her family sends her to Rome to live with her Uncle Roderigo, now Pope Alexander VI. She is both excited and fearful at the prospect of living with her family in Italy. The pope's mistress, Vanozza, was always kind to her, and she will see her cousins Lucrezia, Juan--and Cesare again after ten long years. But it is Cesare she desires to see again. She is no longer a child, she is a woman, a widow. Will Cesare see her with the same eyes, or will he see her for what she is--a woman with desires who has never stopped loving him?
