Set against the dazzling landscape of the Renaissance, The Stargazer captures the ageless desires of the human heart in an "exquisitely dramatic" (Publishers Weekly, starred review) love story laced with danger, adventure, and sensuous pleasure....

Bianca Salva is the brilliant and beautiful daughter of a renowned physician. Ian Foscari is a handsome aristocrat notorious for his romantic conquests. Worlds apart in the circles of society, they have been brought together by an extraordinary intrigue: each has been mysteriously summoned to the home of a murdered courtesan. And each has reason to suspect the other of the deadly crime.

For each, proving their innocence will depend on the other -- and Ian concocts a seamless ruse to ensure that Bianca can't leave his sight. Together, they step carefully around secrets of murder and betrayal. But out of their masquerade grows a heated battle of wits. A tenuous trust. And an undeniable passion....
