GIVEAWAY: The Russian Concubine by Kate Furnivall

Thanks to Penguin Publishing I have 1 copy of The Russian Concubine up for grabs! 

The Russian Concubine is the sequeal to the recently released novel, The Jewel of St. Petersburg which you've heard me rave about here (read my review).  The cover is gorgeous and I just know it's going to be just as entertaining as the prequel!

SYNOPSIS:  A sweeping novel set in war-torn 1928 China, with a star-crossed love story at its center.

In a city full of thieves and Communists, danger and death, spirited young Lydia Ivanova has lived a hard life. Always looking over her shoulder, the sixteen-year-old must steal to feed herself and her mother, Valentina, who numbered among the Russian elite until Bolsheviks murdered most of them, including her husband. As exiles, Lydia and Valentina have learned to survive in a foreign land.
 Often, Lydia steals away to meet with the handsome young freedom fighter Chang An Lo. But they face danger: Chiang Kai Shek's troops are headed toward Junchow to kill Reds like Chang, who has in his possession the jewels of a tsarina, meant as a gift for the despot's wife. The young pair's all-consuming love can only bring shame and peril upon them, from both sides. Those in power will do anything to quell it. But Lydia and Chang are powerless to end it.

  1. Wow Amy...I think this is the biggest giveaway month that you have ever had...or that I've at least seen while following you for over 2 years now ;) Fantastic! Don't know how you have time to read all go girl! I just have to live through you when it comes to all the wonderful books in the world. Have a great weekend, fondly, Roberta

  2. It does sound totally fantastic..but before I enter, do I have to read the first book. Or could I just jump in?

  3. Good question Blodeuedd. I haven't read The Russian Concubine yet, BUT since it was published BEFORE the prequel then I would say it would be fine to read first.

  4. This should be interesting. Not a time and place that is usually written about.

    Thanks for holding the Giveaway.

  5. Thank you for making it international!
