***This giveaway will run for only a week. It ends on Feb. 20 so the winner may receive their copy as close to the release date as possible.***

Sins of the House of Borgia by Sarah Bower looks really dark and filled with plenty of historical drama. My romance novel heart also can't help but be drawn to that cover. Historical fiction is not my usual read of choice unless it's being marketed as a young adult or a romance novel but when I ran across this book on Goodreads, I couldn't help but stop for a minute and look more into it. I actually found myself wikipedia-ing the names after I read the blurb:


In 1492, when Ferdinand and Isabella expel the Jews from Spain, six year old Esther Sarfati finds herself traveling to Rome to join her father, a successful banker who has helped his fellow Spaniard, Rodrigo Borgia, finance his bid for the Papacy. Nine years later, as Pope Alexander VI, he repays the favor by offering Esther a place in the household of his daughter, Lucrezia, who is about to marry Alfonso d'Este, heir to the Duchy of Ferrara. Against her own better judgement, but in accordance with her father's wishes for her future, Esther converts to Christianity and enters Lucrezia's service as lady-in-waiting. Flattered by Lucrezia's favour, seduced by the friendship of her cousin, Angela Borgia and swept off her feet by Lucrezia's glamorous and dangerous brother, Cesare, she is drawn into a web of intrigue and deceit which will test her heart to its utmost and burden her with secrets she must carry to her grave. Set against the glittering background of the court of Ferrara in the early sixteenth century, this is the heart-breaking story of what happens to an innocent abroad in the world of the Borgias.

Looks and sounds good, yeah? This book doesn't come out until March 8 and thanks to Beth and Sourcebooks, I can giveaway a copy of Sins of the House of Borgia by Sarah Bower.
