2011 Release: His Last Duchess by Gabrielle Kimm

This one came out in the UK last year, but will be released in the US on October 1, 2011!

by Gabrielle Kimm


The chilling story of Lucrezia de Medici, duchess to Alfonso d'Este, His Last Duchess paints a portrait of a lonely young girl and her marriage to an inscrutable duke. Lucrezia longs for love, Alfonso desperately needs an heir, and in a true story of lust and dark decadence, the dramatic fireworks the marriage kindles threaten to destroy the duke's entire inheritance–and Lucrezia's future. His Last Duchess gorgeously brings to life the passions and people of sixteenth-century Tuscany and Ferrara.



  1. The Borgias are becoming the new Tudors.

  2. I ordered the UK version off Amazon last week!!! I can't wait!

  3. Lucrezia...de Medici?!?! Never heard of her, now I'm intrigued :)

  4. I love, love, love historical fiction books set in Italy! They always make me want to go back to Italy so badly!

  5. This book looks awesome! I'm really starting to get into these Italian his fic books, as I've sort of exhausted myself on the ones set in England. As much as I love my Tudors, I'm starting to get a smidge burned out on them.
