Win A Copy of The Last Queen by CW Gortner!






Welcome to another Loaded Questions giveaway. This time we are giving away four copies of the brand new novel by CW Gortner, The Last Queen.

From the author's website: Juana of Castile, the last queen of Spanish blood to inherit her country’s throne, is an enigmatic figure, shrouded in lurid myth. Was she the bereft widow of legend who was driven mad by her loss, or has history misjudged a woman who was ahead of her time? In his stunning new novel, C.W. Gortner challenges centuries of myths about Queen Juana, unraveling the mystery surrounding her to reveal a brave, determined woman we can only now begin to fully understand.

This is a book that I have been looking forward to for a long time. As the blurb above states, history has often overlooked Juana of Castile, the woman who became the heir to the Spanish throne, a woman who legend suggests went mad because of love. Having already read the book I can tell you that CW has a beautiful command of the English language, a very vivid vocabulary and as you'll learn in our interview that will be coming out on Monday, a great knowledge of Spanish History and the life of Juana the Mad as a child growing up in Spain.

Although this sounds great, I need to decline an entry. I'm just letting you know that I posted this at my Win a Book blog, and I'll try to post a heads-up about the interview with Ms. Gortner, too. 'cause, you know, it's all about great books.

Hi! This is Heather from Age 30 - A Year of Books. I don't have a favorite author ... there are just too many to love!

This book has been on my TBR list for a while and I'd love to get a copy of it. I'm fascinated by Juana and have been meaning to read more about her.

(you can contact me through my blog if I win - thanks!)

I love reading about these historical figures that are "on the fringe" of most of the books out there. Juana was a shadowy figure in much of our anglocentric books, and I think that Juana's story takes place in a real pivotal period in european history.
