Can’t Wait Wednesday: 20 March 2019

Can’t Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Wishful Endings and spotlights upcoming releases.

Romanov – Nadine Brandes

Romanov by Nadine BrandesThe history books say I died.

They don’t know the half of it.

Anastasia “Nastya” Romanov was given a single mission: to smuggle an ancient spell into her suitcase on her way to exile in Siberia. It might be her family’s only salvation. But the leader of the Bolshevik army is after them . . . and he’s hunted Romanov before.

Nastya’s only chances of survival are to either release the spell, and deal with the consequences, or enlist help from Zash, the handsome soldier who doesn’t act like the average Bolshevik. Nastya’s never dabbled in magic before, but it doesn’t frighten her as much as her growing attraction for Zash. She likes him. She thinks he might even like her . . .

That is, until she’s on one side of a firing squad . . . and he’s on the other.

Why I Can’t Wait:

My bestie absolutely adored Fawkes and we usually like the same books so I’m sure I will too (when I get around to it!). I’m fascinated by Russia so Romanov appeals to me because of it basically being an Anastasia retelling. 

Release Date: 07 May 2019

    I’ve always been fascinated with the Romanovs. Heaven knows why. I have gone back and forth on this one. I dont like front and center romances right now and that sounds like it is leaning towards it. Let me know how it goes when you read it.

      I will! Reviews do seem a bit mixed though.
