From the Back Cover:

Princess Pauline Borghese was one of the most fascinating women of her day. Now her story is unforgettably told by one of her descendants....

The sister of Napoleon Bonaparte, Pauline knows that her sole purpose has always been to make an advantageous marriage to further her ambitious brother's goals. But her joie de vivre cannot be contained—much to the dismay of her new husband, Prince Camillo Borghese. Pauline and Camillo's relationship is tempestuous at best, with Pauline constantly seeking the attention of other men—especially after a heartbreaking loss leaves her devastated, desperate for attention, and searching for answers. Yet despite everything, the love that brought Pauline and Camillo together, as imperfect as it might be, can never truly be stifled.

As seen through the eyes of the young woman who served as Pauline's lady-in-waiting and surrogate daughter, The Princess of Nowhere is an unforgettable tale of a remarkable life that was a study in the excesses of the time and of the power of a woman strong enough to defy expectations.

About the Author:

Prince Lorenzo Borghese was born in Milan and moved to New York City in 1997. He is the owner and creator of Royal Treatment pet products and is one of the largest suppliers of Italian private label cosmetics. His famous paternal ancestors include Napoleon's sister Pauline Bonaparte Borghese, Pope Paul V, and Cardinal Scipione Borghese; the latter two had an enormous influence on Italian art and beautifying Rome in the 1600s and helped finish St. Peter's Basilica.
