Romanov: The Last Tsarist Dynasty

by Michael W. Simmons

The Romanov family ruled as tsars and emperors of all Russia for just over three hundred yearsâ??nineteen men and women in total, some of them brilliant, some of them mad, most of them somewhere in between.

The story of the Romanovs begins in Moscow in 1613, and ends in Ekaterinburg in 1918, at the beginning of a revolution, where Nicholas II, his wife Alexandra, and their five children were slaughtered by a Soviet death squad.

In this book, you will learn about the lives and reigns of each Romanov emperor and empress. Read about Peter the Great, who kept company with peasants and pie sellers but had his own son tortured to death; Catherine the Great, who finally convinced Europe that there was more to be found in the far north than just snow and barbarians; Alexander I, the gallant emperor who famously defeated Napoleon in 1812; Alexander II, who freed the serfs and survived five assassination attempts before perishing in the sixth; and Nicholas II, who ended the Romanov dynasty in 1917 when he abdicated the throne on behalf of himself and his son, the hemophiliac Alexei, who would never be emperor but is now considered a saint.

Romance: Wanting my Stepdad (Taboo Stepfather Nerd New Adult Romance) (Older Man Younger Woman Contemporary Short Stories Collection Book 1)

by Rachelle North

All I have ever cared about is my work.

Geology is what I have breathed and lived ever since I was a teenager.

Not that I had a choice, both my parents are Geologists too, or at least my father was but he passed away when I was small.

I grew up in my mother’s shadow, and when I was made Assistant professor at the university I thought I was headed towards the path of greatness. That finally my mother would be proud of me.

But then I met Luther Gipson.

The man whose work I had studied several times, the living breathing Godfather of modern geology.

I hadn’t expected him to be so hot. To look like an absolute Greek God. I mean, aren’t academics supposed to look boring and wellâ?¦like academics?

I also didn’t expect him to be married. Especially not secretly married to my own mother!

But I can’t help but want him.

I can’t help but wonder how that thick beard will feel against my skin, how he looks under his boring clothes.

I know he was flirting with me too when we met at the party. I know he knows how much I want him.

I get the feeling that he wants me too. How will this ever work?

WARNING: This story contains mature themes and language. Intended for 18+ readers only. It is a short-story romance with NO cliffhanger. Enjoy the bonus stories!
