Cleopatra's Daughter Giveaway!

Haha! I'm so excited to be able to bring you guys this amazing contest. The author, Michelle Moran, is the one to thank. Thank You! So she will give one of you lucky people:


1 HC copy of Cleopatra's Daughter
&
1 Authentic Roman Coin with Certificate of Authenticity!


Wow. I want one! I'm really into coins because of their historicalness, although I'm not a collector. :( I haven't read this book yet, (shame on me) but I've heard many great things from other bloggers and historical fiction is one of my FAVORITE genres.

Can you tell I'm a little excited? :)

Okay, so the contest is INTERNATIONAL! And it ends February 12th!

Happy, happy, happy! Here is part of the book's summary from the author's site. It follows the story of Cleopatra and Marc Antony's children.

Selene’s narrative is animated by the concerns of a young girl in any time and place —the possibility of finding love, the pull of friendship and family, and the pursuit of her unique interests and talents. While coping with the loss of both her family and her ancestral kingdom, Selene must find a path around the dangers of a foreign land. Her accounts of life in Rome are filled with historical details that vividly capture both the glories and horrors of the time. She dines with the empire’s most illustrious poets and politicians, witnesses the creation of the Pantheon, and navigates the colorful, crowded marketplaces of the city where Roman-style justice is meted out with merciless authority.

Based on meticulous research, Cleopatra’s Daughter is a fascinating portrait of Imperial Rome and of the people and events of this glorious and tumultuous period in human history. Emerging from the shadows of history, Selene, a young woman of irresistible charm and preternatural intelligence, will capture your heart.
