Giveaway! The Princess of Nowhere by Lorenze Borghese

Thanks to the generosity of Harper Collins Publishers, I have one brand new copy of The Princess of Nowhere by Lorenze Borghese up for grabs! 
Publish Date: December 2010
Paperback: 308pp

Synopsis (From the Publisher):
"Princess Pauline Borghese was one of the most fascinating women of her day. Now her story is unforgettably told by one of her descendants....
The sister of Napoleon Bonaparte, Pauline knows that her sole purpose has always been to make an advantageous marriage to further her ambitious brother's goals. But her joie de vivre cannot be contained—much to the dismay of her new husband, Prince Camillo Borghese. Pauline and Camillo's relationship is tempestuous at best, with Pauline constantly seeking the attention of other men—especially after a heartbreaking loss leaves her devastated, desperate for attention, and searching for answers. Yet despite everything, the love that brought Pauline and Camillo together, as imperfect as it might be, can never truly be stifled.
As seen through the eyes of the young woman who served as Pauline's lady-in-waiting and surrogate daughter, The Princess of Nowhere is an unforgettable tale of a remarkable life that was a study in the excesses of the time and of the power of a woman strong enough to defy expectations."

This sounds like it will be a good book. So far the only time I have really "seen" Pauline in anything, it was in Lauren Willig's "The Secret History of the Pink Carnation" and she was not portrayed so ... heroine-like, I would love to read her as a heroine! Thanks!:)
