An Empress on the Throne of Russia

by Eva Martens

The eagerly awaited sequel to A Princess at the Court of Russia:

The German princess has taken the throne of Russia. What kind of ruler is she? Does she bow to the influence of the enlightened French philosophers she corresponds with? Or is she swayed by her passions for those men who would seek to share her power by sharing her bed? Is she the ambitous despotic ruler, eager for power, fame and more territory, or a lonely woman in a man’s world? An Empress on the Throne of Russia portrays Catherine the Great in the first critical ten years of her reign as she faces political crises and passionate affairs, wars and plagues, conspiracies and betrayals.

A fascinating mosaic of a woman who would be Empress and an Empress who would be a woman.

Note: While An Empress on the Throne of Russia is a sequel to A Princess at the Court of Russia, published on Kindle in 2013, it can be read independently. A Princess at the Court of Russia narrates how Catherine, a German princess, became Empress of Russia. Its background would add to the reading pleasure of An Empress on the Throne of Russia.



Sinful Deeds (Cynfell Brothers Book 2)

by Samantha Holt

Lust, gluttony, greed, sloth, wrath, envy and pride. The Cynfell Brothers are the very embodiment of a sinful existence. But could the right woman change that?

Envy

Being the mistress of one of the most notorious rakes in London was never going to be easy, but Josephine believed she was strong enough. After all, she loved Dante Cynfell to distraction. He provided her with a comfortable home and all the art supplies she could ever need. After a short marriage that left her near destitute, the widow couldn’t help but fall into his arms…and his bed.

But after four years of tolerating his drunken behaviour and late night calls, Josephine has had enough. Her paintings have caught the eye of a great patron of the arts. With promises of fame and fortune ringing in her ears, she realises being a mistress simply will not satisfy her anymore. She wants true love, marriage, and respectability.

When Josephine ends their arrangement, Dante is shocked. She had a comfortable home, his adoration…hell, even his faithfulness. What more could a beautiful woman want?

Marriage? Well, that’s one thing Dante Cynfell doesn’t plan to offer any woman–not even Josephine. He’s witnessed too many miserable marriages. Why put the person you care about through such misery?

Positive he can win her back, he sets out to remind her how good they are together. One thing is for sure, Dante will not give her up easily–especially to another man. Josephine is about to learn that an envious Cynfell man is not to be trifled with.
