Blog Tour Featuring *Matilda Empress* by Lise Arin @lisearin @sdsxxtours #giveaway


Matilda Empress
by Lise Arin
Genre: Historical Fiction
Matilda, a twelfth-century Empress of the Holy Roman Empire and daughter of Henry I, is twenty-four years old and a widow. She returns to her father’s double realm of England and Normandy and is promptly married against her will to Geoffrey, a minor continental nobleman. When she is absent from England at the time of her father’s death, Matilda loses her throne to her cousin Stephen despite their ongoing and secret love affair.
For almost twenty years, anarchy reins, and their passion fluctuates between hatred and obsession. The only hope in sight is Matilda and Stephen’s two sons, whose rightful claim to the throne may finally end the bloody and endless war.
In the vein of Philippa Gregory’s The Other Boleyn Girl, Matilda Empress follows the real history of the early English monarchs, and what happens when a strong woman at the center of great upheaval refuses to play by the rules laid out for her.

  1. The woman on the cover resembles actress cara delevingne. Very pretty

  2. Please do judge my book by its cover 🙂 The photo suggests all the ambition, passion and charisma of my heroine – who led armies and founded a dynasty. She was a real woman, but also a myth in her own time, and has been almost forgotten, in comparison with other English monarchs and pretenders. I very much hope that readers enjoy getting to know her.

  3. I love this genre of historical fiction, and I’d find it an engrossing read. I really like the cover – she’s very enigmatic.
