Fashionista Piranha having this awesome book giveaway.

Here’s what she says about it:
I am a sucker for good historical fiction (perhaps you have noticed?) and I am especially fond of historical fiction centering around kings and queens. The intrigues of royalty fascinates me, and besides, all the princesses always have the nicest, jewel-encrusted dresses! I haven’t done a big contest in a while, so it’s time for another extravaganza – for every fifty entries I receive, another book will be added to the lot. There will be multiple winners in a random drawing, and each winner gets to pick one item from the following:


Everyone knows that I am a sucker for good historical fiction too! So, I had to get in on this.

Paris, July 1942: Sarah, a ten year-old girl, is brutally arrested with her family by the French police in the Vel’ d’Hiv’ roundup, but not before she locks her younger brother in a cupboard in the family’s apartment, thinking that she will be back within a few hours.Paris, May 2002: On Vel’ d’Hiv’s 60th anniversary, journalist Julia Jarmond is asked to write an article about this black day in France’s past. Through her contemporary investigation, she stumbles onto a trail of long-hidden family secrets that connect her to Sarah. Julia finds herself compelled to retrace the girl’s ordeal, from that terrible term in the Vel d’Hiv’, to the camps, and beyond. As she probes into Sarah’s past, she begins to question her own place in France, and to reevaluate her marriage and her life. Tatiana de Rosnay offers us a brilliantly subtle, compelling portrait of France under occupation and reveals the taboos and silence that surround this painful episode.

The Lost Diary of Don Juan by Douglas Carlton Abrams

Length: 336 pages
Publication date: July 1, 2008
Publisher: Washington Square Press
ISBN-10: 1416532528
ISBN-13: 978-1416532521

Summary: Product description from Amazon: It was a time of discovery and decadence, when life became a gamble and the gold that poured endlessly into the port of Sevilla devalued money, marriage, and love itself. In the midst of these treacherous times, Juan Tenorio is born and then abandoned in the barn of a convent. Raised secretly by the nuns, he learns to love and worship all women and wants nothing more than to be a priest, until he falls in love with one of the sisters. When their affair is discovered, Juan leaves the Church forever. He is soon recruited to be a spy by the powerful Marquis de la Mota, who teaches him to become the world’s greatest libertine and seducer of women. But when he crosses swords with the most powerful man in the Empire, Don Juan must escape the murderous fury of the Inquisitor who battles all forms of debauchery, deviance, and heresy.

It is after knowing countless women that he is convinced by the Marquis to keep a diary, and it is here within its pages that Don Juan reveals his greatest adventures and the Arts of Passion he mastered. But what finally compels him to confess everything and risk losing his life, livelihood, and honor is the most perilous adventure of all — the irresistible fall into the madness of love with the only woman who could ever make him forget all others.
