Today’s free eBook download, The Romanov Legacy, is from award winning author, Jenni Wilts. It’s an action-mystery thriller of historic proportions. If you enjoy reading books with a lot of historical references, this one comes with the Russian kind:
A family murdered in the dead of night. A treasure lost in the throes of revolution. A 90-year mystery that Lenin, Stalin, and the entire Soviet war chest couldn’t solve. One woman holds the key to it all: the missing fortune of Nicholas II, last tsar of Russia.
Natalie Brandon believes the rumors that the murdered tsar left behind a secret account to provide for his family in exile. But getting someone to believe her is harder than finding the account itself. Diagnosed with schizophrenia as a child, Natalie is tormented by a recurring hallucination, the voice of an angel named Belial. Even her sister, a Russian history professor, won’t take her claim seriously…until a blond, blue-eyed Russian spy kidnaps Natalie, claiming she’s the only one who can lead him to the treasure.
But Constantine Dashkov isn’t the only one after the tsar’s missing millions. Russian Prime Minister Maxim Starinov will do anything to get them first. Natalie and Constantine must outrun Starinov’s death squad and track the treasure from San Francisco to Moscow to London. The hunt draws in Natalie’s sister, Constantine’s partner, and a loyal Russian family whose only mission is to guard the Romanovs’ secret. With nothing more than Natalie’s ghostly intuition to guide them, the pair must fight for their lives in a race to protect the tsar’s legacy from a greedy despot.
