    Summary

    A.D. MDXIX. Gian Giacomo Caprotti da Oreno, allievo prediletto di Leonardo da Vinci, ha lasciato da più di un anno la bottega e vive a Milano con la famiglia. Ormai quasi quarantenne, è tormentato dai ricordi di gioventù e dalla storia d’amore avuta col maestro. Salaì, questo il nomignolo che Leonardo gli aveva dato, non ha però sue notizie da molto tempo.
    Questo finché, una mattina di aprile, riceve una lettera da Amboise, Francia. A scrivergli è Francesco Melzi, il suo ex compagno di bottega, con cui non è mai stato in buoni rapporti, che gli intima di raggiungerlo al castello di Clos-Lucé: Leonardo è in fin di vita.
    Questa diventa, per Salaì, un’ultima, importantissima occasione per ritrovare il suo maestro e, forse, risolvere alcuni annosi problemi lasciati in sospeso. Ma c’è una questione ancora più scottante: il testamento. E Salaì non sa cosa l’aspetta.

    Summary

    Cesare has just done the unforgiveable: fratricide. Thinking this a necessary act, he considers himself unphased - but soon years of built-up tensions and repressed feelings within him come to the surface, and dramatically restructure not only his life but the dynamics of his entire family. As his relationship with his father becomes more strained than ever, his relationship with his sister is slowly pushing itself centre stage, until it has Cesare firmly in its grip.

    *This is the prelude to La Morte Borgia - Lucrezia and mixes history with elements from Showtimes' The Borgias.

    Summary

    “What is it?”

    Arthur shakes his head. “Il Principe. Machiavelli.” He reaches up, placing the book on the desk.

    Merlin raises an eyebrow as he pours milk into both teacups.

    “Would’ve thought you’d like his writings, considering that you’re an absolutist clotpole.”

    Arthur glares at him.

    Summary

    “You don’t have to call me ‘my lord’, you know,” Dream said, a slight, amused smile playing at the corners of his mouth. “You’re a guest here, not a servant.” George stared at him for a moment. The Sognare heir glanced down at where he was still gripping George's sleeve, and quickly released him, taking a small step back.
    “Of course, my lord,” George said quickly and practically bolted from room, leaving the other to stare after him with a slight, intrigued shake of his head.

    The Renaissance is at its peak in Florence, Italy. Great craftsmen flock from all over the world to be a part of this era in history, including George, apprentice to the great artist, Samuel Vespucci da Venezia. A commission from the renowned Sognare family leads to a budding relationship between George and Dream, but how could a Lord ever love a commoner?

    Summary

    “Adora?”

    “Sir Adora,” she corrected with a soft smile that pulled at the lingering scar from their childhood. “You seemed a bit trapped.” She offered a leather gloved hand, lowering her head in a respectful nodding bow. “If it pleases you, Your Grace… I thought I would invite you to dance with me.”

    Catra swallowed thickly, unfamiliar with the sputtering of her heart in her chest. “I… believe it would please me very much,” she answered softly, taking the waiting hand.

    Summary

    This is a long Tudor-Valois-Habsburg-Medici epic, written with authentic historical detail, plausibly blending facts with fiction.

    Anne Boleyn makes an impulsive decision. She and a few others are entrapped. The Duke of Norfolk meets with a secret French messenger. Anne discovers something that makes her situation more dramatic, and she sees Henry VIII for the first time in years.

    Exiled from England, Anne Boleyn enters into a political marriage to King François when France is ravaged by the Habsburg invaders. The deadly intrigues of the Tudor, Valois, and Habsburg families and courts are entangled with drama, passion, and wars.  

    This story is a long series of many historical novels about Henry VIII's queens and the Edwardian era while keeping Anne Boleyn alive. There will because a sequel much later where those who are destined to rule after Henry and François will take power.

    Summary

    The year is 1472. Volterra, a small city in the Tuscan hillside, suffers a gruesome sacking at the hands of a Florentine mercenary army. Like hundreds of his fellow citizens, 15 year-old Matteo di' Nanni loses everything: his parents, his younger sister and the smithy his family had owned for three generations. In Matteo's mind, there is only one culprit in the horrible fate of his hometown: Lorenzo de' Medici, the arrogant Florentine banker who believes himself to be king of the region. Matteo swears vengeance. One day, the blood of il Magnifico will stain his hands.

    Five years later, Matteo is forced to leave his home, haunted by the ghosts of the past. His destination: Florence. In a city where art and sin walk hand in hand, he soon finds himself wandering around in a world of artists, prostitutes and sodomites. A world in which beauty is rewarded with golden florins and groping hands. A world which will allow him to come closer to his goal than he had ever imagined. But while Matteo learns to become a master in the art of seduction, an invisible threat grows inside the palazzos of Florence. Soon, blood will run in the streets again and Matteo will have to choose: love or revenge?

    In Renaissance-era Italy, the Targaryen family controls the papacy - but only just. The country is on the cusp of war, and alliances must be made at all costs.

    Jon Snow only wants two things from life: to fight, and to be with his beloved Daenerys.

Forced to watch as Daenerys is married off to the rich Lannister family for gold, he realises he must protect her no matter the consequences. Even if this means war.

    Daenerys Targaryen wants to be a good daughter and do her family's bidding. But her marriage to Jaime Lannister only proves to make her miserable. She longs to run away with Jon, but her new home in Florence is a long way away from Rome. She soon realises that she'll have to make a choice: to accept her lot in life, or to fight her way back to Jon.

    Summary

    (...)She could hear his voice in her ears, imagining the cadenza of his florentine accent when pronouncing a certain word, his booming laughter that just caused her heart to thrill with joy; she could see his face, the way his eyes would lit up, the way the corners of his mouth would rise and his smile be as warm as the sun above during the most serene of summer days.
    She suppressed a whimper, when she felt tears pooling in her eyes.
    Not knowing when they would see each other again -if, even- caused the bleakest of disquiet to take root in her heart.

    -------------------

    The Carnevale has always been Lucia's favourite celebration. But now that Federico has returned to Firenze, she cannot find peace in her heart to rejoice for the event.
