Romance – April 18

Lucrezia Borgia, the illegitimate daughter of a future Pope, was born on this date in 1480.

Her family personified Machiavellian corruption and committed bribery, theft, adultery, incest, and murder as well as strategic marriage — to which Lucrezia was thrice committed.

Writing prompt: Write a scene in which your protagonist is threatened with being forced to marry a person for political or financial advantage rather than love.
