Royal Captive (1977)

ROYAL CAPTIVE chronicles her fabulous rise -- and the degradations and indignities she would survive . . . the cruel man who first possessed her body, and the young duke who would finally possess her heart. The story of Rosanna is a saga of triumph, of revenge, of court intrigues and unbridled lust -- and, most of all, the vivid, unforgettable romance of Rosanna and the magnificent Duke Paolo. Her name was Rosanna -- daughter of a witch, poverty-striken, but possessed of a fiery spirit and an unquenchable thirst for all life could offer. Young, innocent, with the guilelessness of a girl and the body of a woman. Rosanna was destined to climb to the dizzying heights of a 15th-century Italian court life.
