Summary
  • "The first retelling of the passionate, twelfth-century love story since the discovery of 113 lost love letters between Heloise d'Argenteuil and Pierre Abelard--the original Romeo and Juliet. He was the most famous philosopher in the world, a headmaster and a poet whose dashing good looks would make any woman swoon. She was Paris's most brilliant young scholar, beautiful and wry, and his student. Forbidden by the church and society to love each other, these enchanting lovers defied all the rules to follow their own hearts and risk everything that mattered to them, including each other. An illicit child, a secret marriage, a vengeful uncle: nothing can come between them--until a vicious attack tears them apart forever...or does it? Incorporating original text from their achingly beautiful love letters, this is the tale of Heloise and Abelard, whose love affair, like that of Romeo and Juliet, and Antony and Cleopatra, has become one of the greatest stories of all time. The Sharp Hook of Love is an imaginative, intimate, and erotic portrayal of the star-crossed lovers whose tale of passion and tragedy still touches hearts today"--
  • "The passionate, star-crossed love story of famed lovers Heloise and Abelard -- the original Romeo and Juliet -- is told by Heloise, using actual letters the couple wrote to each other in 12th century Paris during their forbidden affair"--
