"A delightful romp through the backstory of 'Romeo & Juliet." - Chicago Sun-Times

Cangrande della Scala is everything a man should be. Daring. Charming. Ruthless. To the poet Dante, he is the ideal Renaissance prince - until Dante’s son discovers a secret that could be Cangrande’s undoing.

Thrust into the betrayal surrounding Verona’s prince, Pietro Alighieri must navigate a rivalry that severs a friendship, divides a city, and sparks a feud that will produce Shakespeare’s famous star-crossed lovers, Romeo & Juliet.

Based on the plays of William Shakespeare, The Master Of Verona is a sweeping novel of Renaissance Italy. Filled with swashbuckling adventure and unrequited love, this epic journey recalls the best of Bernard Cornwell, Sharon Kay Penman, and Dorothy Dunnett.
