Still Star-Crossed

Melinda Taub

Love and violence intertwine in debut author Taub’s spectacular sequel to Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. Despite the glooming peace that's settled on Verona after the recent tragedy, the Montagues and Capulets are brawling in the streets. Struggling to maintain the peace between the rival factions, Prince Escalus arranges a marriage between Romeo's best friend, Benvolio, and Juliet's cousin, Rosaline. Contrary to their late cousins, there's no love lost between Benvolio and Rosaline, yet they forge a bond to end the renewed feud not only to escape their forced betrothal, but to save their lives and the city of Verona itself.
