In Bookstores Today! O, Juliet by Robin Maxwell

In Bookstores Today!
Finally today is the day! Release day for O, Juliet by Robin Maxwell. I know many of you have been dying to get your hands on it after the Historical Fiction Bloggers Round Table event. Be sure to check the HFBRT site for more on O, Juliet by Robin Maxwell.

"Before Juliet Capelletti lie two futures: a traditionally loveless marriage to her father's business partner, or the fulfillment of her poetic dreams, inspired by the great Dante. Unlike her beloved friend Lucrezia, who looks forward to her arranged marriage, Juliet has a wild, romantic imagination that knows not the bounds of her great family's stalwart keep.

The latter path is hers for the taking when Juliet meets Romeo Monticecco, a soulful young man seeking peace between their warring families. A dreamer himself, Romeo is unstoppable, once he determines to capture the heart of the remarkable woman foretold in his stars. The breathless intrigue that ensues is the stuff of beloved legend. But those familiar with Shakespeare's muse know only half the story... "
