To celebrate the release of Michelle Moran's fifth novel, The Second Empress, I will be giving away two copies of the book. It's a tale set during the final years of the reign of Napoleon. A teenage princess from Austria must turn her back on the world she knows to marry the middle-aged Emperor of France, while Napoleon's scheming sister plots to remain the star in her brother's eyes.
If you've never read any of Michelle's books, it's a great place to start - this story isn't part of a series so you don't have to worry about missing information in previous books. If you're already a fan of Moran's work, then you know that you won't want to miss her newest novel!
There will be two winners; each one will receive one copy of the book. The giveaway is open to readers around the world, with no geographic limitations.
