The White Queen giveaway (two copies up for grabs)

I am so happy and excited to be working with Katrina from Wiredset. She always has awesome giveaways to offer my blog visitors. And it's no exception today either. Thanks to Katrina, I have two copies of The White Queen by Philippa Gregory to give away.

Here's a book descripiton:
Philippa Gregory, "the queen of royal fiction" (USA Today) Presents the first of a new series set amid the deadly feuds of England known as the Wars of the Roses.

Brother turns on brother to win the ultimate prize, the throne of England, in this dazzling account of the wars of the Plantagenets. They are the claimants and kings who ruled England before the Tudors, and now Philippa Gregory brings them to life through the dramatic and intimate stories of the secret players: the indomitable women, starting with Elizabeth Woodville, the White Queen.

The White Queen tells the story of a woman of extraordinary beauty and ambition who, catching the eye of the newly crowned boy king, marries him in secret and ascends to royalty. While Elizabeth rises to the demands of her exalted position and fights for the success of her family, her two sons become central figures in a mystery that has confounded historians for centuries: the missing princes in the Tower of London whose fate is still unknown. From her uniquely qualified perspective, Philippa Gregory explores this most famous unsolved mystery of English history, informed by impeccable research and framed by her inimitable storytelling skills.

With The White Queen, Philippa Gregory brings the artistry and intellect of a master writer and storyteller to a new era in history and begins what is sure to be another bestselling classic series from this beloved author.

I know that Ms. Gregory has tons of fans and with this new book concentrating on another period of British history, she'll get even more fans. If you are still not sure whether you want to enter the giveaway, here's some more links and info about the book to convince you:
