Additional Giveaway: MISTRESS SHAKESPEARE by Karen Harper

I have an additional Karen Harper giveaway to offer: a copy of MISTRESS SHAKESPEARE, which came out in trade paperback from NAL earlier this month. From Ms. Harper's website:

England, 1601. When Queen Elizabeth’s men come looking for William Shakespeare—a rumored Catholic in a time of Catholic-Protestant intrigue and insurrection—they first question a beautiful dark-haired woman who seems to know the famous playwright very well. Too well. She is Anne Whateley, born in Temple Grafton, a small town just upriver from Shakespeare’s hometown of Stratford-upon-Avon. And as church records show—were anyone to look for them—Anne Whateley was wed to William Shakespeare in a small country church just days before he married another woman, Anne Hathaway, who has lived as his wife for decades. In MISTRESS SHAKESPEARE, Anne Whateley--who may or may not be Will’s true wife--tells her story. Stretching almost fifty years, from the rural villages of Warwickshire to the bustling city of London, with its teeming streets and lively theaters, it’s a story of undying passion, for life, love, and literature.

Again, this contest will remain open until 10 pm PST next Friday, January 29, with the randomly-drawn winner's name posted by Saturday morning, January 30. Please leave a comment HERE with your email address if you are interested in entering the drawing for MISTRESS SHAKESPEARE. If you are interested in both Harper books, please leave a separate comment at EACH post.
