For those of you who haven’t heard a terrible fire claimed, last week, everything owned by author Kate Quinn (Day of Fire, The Lion and the Rose, The Serpent and the Pearl, Empress of The Seven Hills, Daughters of Rome, and Mistress of Rome). Fellow HF author Stephanie Dray has started a Go Fund Me page tohelp Kate get back on her feet. The funds raised will go directly to Kate and her husband. For those of you who are not in a position to donate , I completely understand, but perhaps you can help Kate out by pre-ordering her upcoming release: Lady of the Eternal City which will arrive in bookstores March 3rd and if that is not in your budget then can you please help spread the word about the fundraiser or the upcoming release? Use your FB, Twitter, Instagram and or any other form of media outlet you use because HFAs ban together. We help each other out when we hit hard times and let me tell you, this is a tough time for the Quinns! So, please do what you can to help this wonderful HF author who has given us some incredible novels to read.
National bestselling author Kate Quinn returns with the long-awaited fourth volume in the Empress of Rome series, an unforgettable new tale of the politics, power, and passion that defined ancient Rome.
Elegant, secretive Sabina may be Empress of Rome, but she still stands poised on a knife’s edge. She must keep the peace between two deadly enemies: her husband Hadrian, Rome’s brilliant and sinister Emperor; and battered warrior Vix, who is her first love. But Sabina is guardian of a deadly secret: Vix’s beautiful son Antinous has become the Emperor’s latest obsession.
Empress and Emperor, father and son will spin in a deadly dance of passion, betrayal, conspiracy, and war. As tragedy sends Hadrian spiraling into madness, Vix and Sabina form a last desperate pact to save the Empire. But ultimately, the fate of Rome lies with an untried girl, a spirited redhead who may just be the next Lady of the Eternal City . . .
