Discover the highly acclaimed historical fiction series set within the glittering and ruthless House of Romanov. 'Gripping ... Who would not want to spend more time in the mad, bad world of the Romanovs?' The Times 'A delicious hotbed of greed, lust and envy' Heat When they took everything from her, they didn't count on her fighting to get it back... Born into the House of Romanov to the all-powerful Peter the Great and Catherine I, beautiful Tsarevna Elizabeth is the world's loveliest Princess and the envy of the Russian empire. Insulated by luxury and as a woman free from the burden of statecraft, Elizabeth is seemingly born to pursue her passions. However, a dark prophecy predicts her fate as being inexorably twined with that of Russia. When her mother dies, Russia is torn, masks fall, and friends become foes. Elizabeth's idyllic world is upended. By her twenties she is penniless and powerless, living under constant threat. As times change like quicksand, an all-consuming passion emboldens Elizabeth: she must decide whether to take up her role as Russia's ruler, and what she's willing to do for her country - and for love. Praise for Tsarina 'It makes Game of Thrones look like a nursery rhyme' Daisy Goodwin 'A vivid page-turner of a debut' The Times 'Tsarina should come with a health warning - once you start reading, it's impossible to stop' Hannah Rothschild
