Wary of this union, de Medici offers much resistance, but when the Pope is your suitor, there is little objection to be made. Some said she maeame an elegant seductress.
Jul 21, Billye rated it it was amazing. But faced with brutal murder, she’s soon torn between her love for her husband and her devotion to her brother Cesare… And in the days when the Borgias ruled Italy, no one was safe from the long arm of their power. There’s just something about how many historical places and periods she wrote about and how many details she’s able to include to I can’t help but be excited about.
TreMellyn’s young daugher, Alvean, proved as spoiled and difficult as the three governesses before Martha had discovered. This is the first of a trilogy about her and gives excellent color to her early life in midst the political machinations of Rome and Florence, then to her loveless but prolific marriage to Henry II of France.

For a historical fiction lover not just paying attention to romancethis was an absolute treat. I may, after a time, return to this series to see how de Medici fares in the second and third novels, though find myself in need of literary courage for that plunge.
At first I thought it was dragging along, but once I remembered this was book one of the trilogy, it all made sense. This novel is as much the story of Jeanne of Navarre as it is Catherine. Humiliated and unloved, Catherine spies on Henry and his lover, the infamous Diane de Poitiers. I do love Jean Plaidy, but one major critique making this novel not her best – The interactions or sparking moments behind Catherine’s intense love for Henry were never introduced, so we saw Catherine’s love to the point of obsession for Henry, but not whatever caused it.
But Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.
While it is a novel and is entertaining, it ignores most madam the history of the time. Jul 31, DaveA rated it really liked it.

Wanting to give up reading in the beginning was a terrible sserpiente, so I didn’t have a favourable impression of the book at all; I definitely won’t be reading the rest of lpaidy series.
Plaidy novels give an informed spin on the royals and are always satisfying. Mount Mellyn stood as proud and magnificent as she had envisioned Two years ago I embarked on a serious read of historical fiction and non-fiction relating to the rise to power of the Tudor line in England. But what bout its master–Connan TreMellyn? An ever-growing collection of others appears at: Unfortunately, all of Henry’s love went to his sdrpiente Diane de Poitiers.
The Queen to a certain extent and most of all the mistresses. The entire novel was based off Catherine pining for the man who would never love her back, and her love felt forced because I never saw a reason for her to love him. Even with this background though, there’s still so much new information I found jsan is one reason I love Plaidy’s books.
