Secrecy by Rupert Thomson

Zummo is a sculptor of wax and has been invited to Florence by the grand duke to join the Medici court. Secrets abound and this historical fiction novel took some smutty turns when I least expected it. I enjoyed the secret look into the Medici family, their twisted servants, and everyday life of an artist who has a wealthy patron in the late 17th century.
