Her father is on that list…

Margot Valois – Memorie di una Cortigiana (Aliberti Compagnia Editoriale – LOVE)

margotVenezia 1565. Veronica, figlia di una delle cortigiane più note di Venezia, viene data in sposa a un vecchio medico. Il matrimonio dura meno di un mese: la ragazza riesce a fuggire dal marito, che la teneva segregata in casa e la costringeva a giochi erotici perversi. Nella sua fuga, viene soccorsa da Marco Venier, un giovane intellettuale della Serenissima, destinato alla carriera politica. Ora deve scegliere: tornare dal marito oppure diventare una cortigiana. La sua strada è decisa: Veronica impara così da sua madre tutti i segreti dell’eros, diventando in poco tempo la donna più desiderata di Venezia. La sua fama di amante focosa e di donna intelligente la precede ovunque vada. Peccato che non abbia fatto i conti con la passione, quella vera, che quando arriva la travolge in pieno…
