Latin and its daughters

I'd like to find a good book that details the historical linguistics and transitions of Latin into its daughter languages, what the influences were in the geographic areas and how they affected the language, etc. I'm not particularly looking for how it influenced English or anything, just the true Romance languages. Any recommendations? Thanks.
