Item description for Los cisnes de Leonardo / Leonardo's Swans (Narrativa (Punto de Lectura)) by Karen Essex...

Sexual and political intrigue drive Essex's intricate novel starring 15th-century Italian sisters Isabella and Beatrice d'Este. Isabella, the elder, more accomplished sister, is engaged to a minor aristocrat, while Beatrice is intended for the future duke of Milan, Ludovico Sforza. Blond, beautiful, politically astute, and a patron of the arts, elder sister Isabella will do everything in her power to obtain what she believes is her right: to reign in one of the most advanced cities of her time and to be immortalized by Master Leonardo da Vinci. And so, Isabella encourages her brother-in-law's infatuated overtures. Sexy, inspiring, and intelligent, their story of love, intrigue, and art is truly unforgettable.

Description In Spanish: Isabella d'Este, la hermosa e inteligente hija del Duque de Ferrara, encarna a la perfecta dama renacentista. Mundana y ambiciosa, siempre se ha sentido superior a su hermana, la impetuosa e inocente Beatrice. Sin embargo, cuando sta se casa con el fascinante duque de Miln un hombre que le dobla la edad y que vive abiertamente con su amante, Isabella siente que su hermana le ha robado su destino: reinar en una de las ciudades ms adelantadas y poderosas de su tiempo y ser inmortalizada por Leonardo da Vinci, el pintor ms admirado del momento. Aunque Isabella se casa con su amor de juventud, el marqus de Mantua a lo largo de los aos no cejar en sus esfuerzos para conseguir lo que cree que le pertenece por derecho propio. No solo querr convertirse en la musa del genial pintor, sino que no dudar en insinuarse a su cuado. Son los aos en los que Leonardo realiza sus dos obras maestras, La ltima cena y la Mona Lisa. Ni siquiera el artista se ver libre de las exigencias de sus nobles mecenas. En definitiva, Los cisnes de Leonardo es una maravillosa novela que transportar al lector al esplendor de la Italia renacentista y le ensear que, ms que para resolver enigmas misteriosos, las obras de Leonardo tienen claves con las que entender el corazn humano.
