I’ve known for a while how gorgeous the cover for Cleopatra’s Moon is, but I didn’t make a big deal about it because, well, it doesn’t come out until August. I worried that people might get tired of it if I jumped up and down about it too much, too early.
But, I’ve been seeing it pop up in different places (Goodreads, for one) so I figured I might as well own it. So, TA DA! Introducing the cover for Cleopatra’s Moon. Isn’t it gorgeous? Isn’t if fab? Isn’t it totally gush-worthy?
What do ya think?
Meanwhile, here’s the inside flap copy:
PRINCESS OF EGYPT
Cleopatra Selene is the only daughter of the brilliant Queen Cleopatra of Egypt and general Marcus Antonius of Rome. She’s grown up with jewels on her arms, servants at her feet, and all the pleasures of a palace at her command. She wants only to follow in her mother’s footsteps and become a great and powerful queen.
PRISONER OF ROME
Then the Roman ruler Octavianus, who has always wanted Egypt’s wealth, launches a war that destroys all Selene has ever known. Taken to live in Octavianus’s compound in Rome, she vows to defeat him and reclaim her kingdom at all costs. Yet even as she gathers support for her return, Selene finds herself torn between two young men and two different paths to power. Will love distract her from her goal–or help her achieve her true destiny?
