About the Book

Prince Lorenzo Borghese, a descendant of the brother-in-law of Napoleon Bonaparte, bursts boldly onto the historical fiction scene with The Princess of Nowhere—a captivating and richly atmospheric re-imagining of the life of the author’s famous ancestor, Princess Pauline Bonaparte Borghese. Author Borghese—whom TV viewers will recognize for his appearance on the hit ABC series, The Bachelor—will enthrall readers of Sarah Dunant and Suzannah Dunn with this masterful blend of fact and fiction, a story of passion, betrayal, and one woman who truly conquered all…even death.

Educator and Librarian Resources

Critical Praise

“Borghese’s first novel, writing about his ancestors, is a labor of love ... Pauline is a spitfire of a heroine--flawed, petulant, extremely unlikable, and mesmerizing. Throughout, the most compelling evolution is Sophie’s as she, like the reader, moves from being enamored with Pauline to disenchanted, but incapable of leaving her.” - Publishers Weekly

“A readable, racy romp.” - Kirkus Reviews

“Historical fiction fans with an intense interest in Bonaparte lore will be intrigued by this account” - Library Journal
