Renaissance Florence comes to passionate life in a vivid new historical romance series by legendary New York Times bestselling author Bertrice Small.

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’s dangerous indiscretion implicates him in a tragic accident, it is their eldest daughter who must pay the price. Blackmailed by the powerful and debauched Sebastiano Rovere, the Pietro d’Angelos must give him beautiful Bianca in marriage to buy his silence.

With the aid of her mother, Bianca flees her dark, cruel union, seeking shelter in a seaside villa. The shocking murder of her husband allows her to find the possibility of love at last, but Florentine society would never approve of the man she’s chosen: Prince Amir, grandson of Memhet the Conqueror.

Two passionate lovers ... two different cultures ... two worlds determined to keep them apart...

Quotes & Awards

  • “A lush and highly sensual tale...Large in scope and heated, even sizzling, with passion—Fifty Shades has nothing on Small—Bianca harkens back to the style, sweep, and sensuality that this beloved author is known for creating.”

    RT Book Reviews

  • “Exquisite historical detail brings every moment vividly to life. Small describes violence as intimately as passion, and readers may hurry past the scenes of brutality while lingering over Bianca and Amir’s tender love scenes.”

    " I expected more from BS, it looks like she will not be able to repeat the "Skey O'Malley" series that for me was one of her best. But I will keep waiting, and will read the next book of this series. "

    " I liked the book but while reading it I kept getting the feeling at various areas that I had read it before. This didn't seem to be quite up to Ms. Small's usual quality. "

    " I would have given this a 5 out of 5 stars but I thought there was too much sex in the first 100 pages. I feel it is not needed to tell the story which was fantastic. Hope the next installment is a little less erotica. "
