Maxim Laurent wakes up in a hospital bed in Paris. He was the victim of an attack and now has amnesia. He has no memory of his assault or his former life. His best clue is a notebook found in his possession which is filled with research on Russian history. The notebook also claims that he is the grandson of the famous Grand Duchess Anastasia. He leaves the hospital and begins to investigate his former life and any connections to the Romanovs.
Finley Abbot is an art curator who works at the Louvre. Her expertise is artifacts from the Romanov dynasty. She has recently published a book on this subject and is having a reading at the Shakespeare and Co. bookstore. Maxim shows up and asks Finley’s for help substantiating his relation to Anastasia. He claims to have some items from his grandmother that may interest Finley. She finds Maxim attractive but believes his story is a con. They agree to meet and the story unfolds.
This book is the retelling of the 1956 classic myth Anastasia. This is Teri Wilson’s second book in The Royals series and the third volume, Royally Wed, will debut in November. I enjoyed this story which has a mixture of romance, mystery and suspense.
