Teaser Tuesday #96

Ed ecco di nuovo la rubrica settimanale Teaser Tuesday, creata dal blog Should Be Reading, che si divide in poche, semplici fasi:
1_ prendi il libro che stai leggendo
2_ apri una pagina a caso
3_ scrivi un breve brano (stando attenti a non spoilerare)
4_ scrivi titolo e autore

Lucrezia was in her apartament at the Palace of Santa Maria, and her slaves and women were helping her to dress. One fastened the ribbon of her gown while another set a jewelled ornament in her hair.
The arrangements for her marriage had advanced considerably; Don Gasparo, the rejected suitor, had been placated with a gift of three thousand ducats; and the whole of Italy was talking of the Borgia-Sforza alliance. Some saw in this a threat to their security, and della Rovere had decided he would be safer out of Rome. Ferrante of Aragon was disturbed by the alliance and waited apprehensively for what it would bring forth.
There was no doubt in Lucrezia's mind that this betrothal had reached a stage which none of the others had, and it seemed almost certain that she would marry Giovanni Sforza.
So, when a page knocked for admission and told one of her attendats that a noble gentleman had arrived at the palace and was asking to see her, Lucrezia immediately thought that Giovanni Sforza had come.

  1. Wooooo sbaglio o questo romanzo ha anche un tocco storico? Ultimamente sto amando questo genere, sia nei libri che nei telefilm!

    1. Più che un tocco storico, è completamente storico :P però non è che mi stia facendo impazzire: è scritto bene, ma è un po' noiosetto ^^;;
