Tsarina
by Nelle Patrick

Natalya’s life seems like a fairy tale come true. Her days in St. Petersburg are filled with beautiful clothes, dances, and time spent with her first and only love, Alexi Romanov, heir to the Russian throne. The great mystic, Rasputin, placed all of his power into a hidden Faberge Egg that will protect the health of the Romanovs and those they love. All seems secure but the country is in chaos and in 1917 the Red army raids the palace and the royal family is under arrest.

Natalya is desperate to find the egg in order to save Alexi before the Reds discover it but when she sneaks into the palace, the egg is missing. Natalya and her friend Emilia cross paths with a Red soldier, Leo. Natalya and Leo have opposite plans for the egg once it is found but the three of them are forced to rely on each other as they race across Russia in their quest.

The author, who is better known as Jackson Pearce, blends history, fantasy, romance, and adventure into a spellbinding tale!
