Fans of historical romance will be swept off their feet by Nathan Gallizier's enchanting novel Under the Witches' Moon. Set in a period that is often underrepresented in the genre, this tale pairs a soul-stirring romance with fascinating details about the customs, beliefs, and daily lives of people during the era.
The third rebellion of Johannes Crescentius, Senator of Rome, enacted after the death of the pontiff and the election of Sylvester II, forms but the prelude to the great drama whose final curtain was to fall upon the doom of the third Otto, of whose love for Stephania, the beautiful wife of Crescentius, innumerable legends are told in the old monkish chronicles and whose tragic death caused a lament to go throughout the world of the Millennium.
Milan-born author Nathan Gallizier brings the enchantment and intrigue of early medieval Italy to vivid life in his classic romance novel The Hill of Venus, set in the year 1266. Lovers Francesco and Ilaria want nothing more than to spend their lives together -- but seemingly insurmountable circumstances stand in the way.
Though he went on to have a successful career as a businessman in the United States, Nathan Gallizier was born in Italy, and his early experiences in that country significantly influenced his literary output as a novelist. Set in Rome in the year 999, this novel follows the torrid romance of protagonists Otto and Stephania.
