Giveaway! Mistress of Rome by Kate Quinn


I have two brand new copies of Mistress of Rome by Kate Quinn available for two lucky winners, chosen by random drawing! This is an excellent and intriguing work of historical fiction that you don't want to miss! You can read my review here: Review of Mistress of Rome.

Synopsis: (From the Publisher)
An exciting debut: a vivid, richly imagined saga of ancient Rome from a masterful new voice in historical fiction.

Thea is a slave girl from Judaea, passionate, musical, and guarded. Purchased as a toy for the spiteful heiress Lepida Pollia, Thea will become her mistress's rival for the love of Arius the Barbarian, Rome's newest and most savage gladiator. His love brings Thea the first happiness of her life-that is quickly ended when a jealous Lepida tears them apart.

As Lepida goes on to wreak havoc in the life of a new husband and his family, Thea remakes herself as a polished singer for Rome's aristocrats. Unwittingly, she attracts another admirer in the charismatic Emperor of Rome. But Domitian's games have a darker side, and Thea finds herself fighting for both soul and sanity. Many have tried to destroy the Emperor: a vengeful gladiator, an upright senator, a tormented soldier, a Vestal Virgin. But in the end, the life of the brilliant and paranoid Domitian lies in the hands of one woman: the Emperor's mistress.

Very glad to see books in this historical period coming to the fore once more. There was a time when the Roman Empire was the backdrop for tons of historical fiction but that has not been the case for a very long time. Great to have this featured now -- thanks for making this available to us. Good luck to us all as we vie for this book. Really enjoy the blog -- have it on a sidebar on my blog and visit often.
