Giveaway: Madame Picasso by Anne Girard

One thing I love more than anything about this time of year is how cozy it feels to curl up with a hot cup of coffee and a great historical read. I've had my eye on Madame Picasso by Anne Girard, which just came out this August. Want to learn more about this novel and why it has captured my eye?  Here's what it's about:

"Novelist Anne Girard brings to life the mesmerizing and untold story of Eva Gouel, the unforgettable woman who stole the heart of the greatest artist of our time. When Eva Gouel moves to Paris from the countryside, she is full of ambition and dreams of stardom. Though young and inexperienced, she manages to find work as a costumer at the famous Moulin Rouge, and it is here that she first catches the attention of Pablo Picasso, a rising star in the art world. A brilliant but eccentric artist, Picasso sets his sights on Eva, and Eva can't help but be drawn into his web. But what starts as a torrid affair soon evolves into what will become the first great love of Picasso's life.  With sparkling insight and passion, Madame Picasso introduces us to a dazzling heroine, taking us from the salon of Gertrude Stein to the glamorous Moulin Rouge and inside the studio and heart of one of the most enigmatic and iconic artists of the twentieth century."

I love the setting of early twentieth century Paris. It sort of reminds me a bit of one of my favorite movies Midnight in Paris. There were such captivating people people living in Paris during that time….Gertrude Stein, Ernest Hemingway and more. 

You can read an excerpt of Madame Picasso here if interested or check out Anne Girard's official website and Facebook page to learn more. 

I am excited to give away two copies of Madame Picasso to two lucky US readers, thanks to Harlequin's generosity.  The deadline is September 26th and please refer to my giveaway rules.  Good luck!
