The Borgia Bride Jeanne Kalogridies

Sancha de Aragon, princess of Naples and illegitimate daughter to the coldhearted duke of Calabria is used to establish ties to the feared and influential House of Borgia when her father betroths her to the younger scion, Jofre. War with the French briefly returned her to Naples, but rumors of her beauty reach her lecherous father-in-law, Pope Alexander VI, who recalls her and Jofre to opulent Rome. There, she avoids the pope's advances—and her jealous sister-in-law Lucrezia's animosity—but falls into a steamy affair with her brother-in-law, Cesare Borgia. Cesare becomes furious when she refuses to leave Jofre, and he sets out on a warpath that includes her brother Alfonso, who has also married into the Borgia clan—to Lucrezia.
I was a bit taunted by the size of this book and wondered if i would finish it. Well there was no stopping and putting the book down.
I will be picking Up The Devil's Queen Soon.
