Royally Romanov by Teri Wilson

Leave a comment

Lucky to be alive, an attack near Paris’ Notre Dame Cathedral left Maxim Laurent with temporary memory loss. The only item he has in his possession is a leather journal that claims he is Maxim Romanov, descent of the Russian Imperial Romanov and grandson to Anastasia, who purportedly could have escaped execution and lived in exile.

He visits a local bookstore where author and assistant curator at the Louvre, Finley Abbot, is holding a book signing about her book on Romanov history. Finley agrees to help Maxim in his quest for answers. There’s chemistry between the two, even at first sight, but her interest in Maxim and in learning the truth causes a conflict of interest that might jeopardize her career.

As Maxim slowly begins to regain his memory, he discovers he might not be the person he claims and will have to hide the truth to protect the woman who has captured his heart.

A contemporary retelling of Anastasia chalk full of elegance in the most romantic city in the world is a delight in this second book in The Royals series. Wilson (Royally Roma) crafts love scenes that are sexy and passionate and align perfectly with the backdrop and absorbing plot that will have wide appeal.
