The Tudor Secret by C.W. Gortner Extra Special Giveaway

As most of you might know I am a C.W. Gortner enthusiast, I love his books and he is by far one of the coolest people I have ever had the pleasure to meet in the blogging community. C.W. has been so kind in offering up a SIGNED copy of The Tudor Secret (The Elizabeth I Spymaster Chronicles) for giveaway on Historically Obsessed. I thought since this book inspired me to do an Elizabeth I necklace I would add my beautifully designed necklace into the lot for the winner also. What this mean to you is that one very lucky winner is going to not only get this beautiful new book signed but a mysterious key necklace that completely reminds me of Elizabeth I. 

Why it reminds me of Elizabeth I? I think Elizabeth must have had many secrets and in her life there was much deception that constantly surrounded her but she held the key to her heart not anyone else. I always imagined it as a really big key because of the quote "I may not be a lion but I am a lions cub, and have a lions heart". The beautiful necklace is made with antique crystals and faux pearls. All the metal hardware is sterling silver and silver plated. It is meant to be a low lying choker with a key toggle clasp.

"Summer 1553: A time of danger and deceit. Brendan Prescott, an orphan, is reared in the household of the powerful Dudley family. Brought to court, he finds himself sent on an illicit mission to the King's brilliant but enigmatic sister, Princess Elizabeth. But Brendan is soon compelled to work as a double agent by Elizabeth's protector, William Cecil--who promises in exchange to help him unravel the secret of his own mysterious past. A dark plot swirls around Elizabeth's quest to unravel the truth about the ominous disappearance of her seriously ill brother, King Edward VI. With Elizabeth's lady-in-waiting at his side, Brendan plunges into a ruthless gambit of half-truths, lies, and murder. Filled with the intrigue and pageantry of Tudor England, THE TUDOR SECRET is the first book in the Elizabeth I Spymaster series".
