In this charming modern day retelling of the 1956 classic Anastasia, a museum curator falls for a mysterious man who may or may not be a long lost heir to Russia’s imperial Romanov dynasty.

Finley Abbot is organizing the most prestigious art exhibit of her career at the Louvre museum—a retrospective of art from the House of Romanov. But the sudden appearance of Maxim Romanov threatens to turn her into the biggest laughingstock of the art world. When she finds herself falling in love, she realizes there’s even more at stake than her career. How can she trust a man with her whole world when he can’t remember a thing about his past?

After suffering a violent blow to the head, Maxim’s only clue to his identity is a notebook containing carefully researched documentation in his own handwriting indicating that he is the sole surviving descendant of the Grand Duchess Anastasia, previously thought dead in the murder of her family during Russia’s Bolshevik revolution. His struggle to put the mysterious pieces of his past back together leads him to Finley. At first, she’s convinced Maxim is nothing but a con artist. But there’s something undeniably captivating about the beautiful, brooding man who claims to be searching for his identity—something Finley can’t quite bring herself to resist. When he reveals a secret about one of the imperial FabergĂ© eggs in the collection, she accepts he may actually be telling the truth. But as soon as Finley and Maxim act on their feelings for one another, Maxim is confronted with evidence that calls into question everything he’s begun to believe about himself. 

My Review: I love this take on Anastasia. It was done better than a few Ive read.

Anywho...Finley is smart and loves art. Right now she is working on organizing a huge exhibit, so huge it will mean big things for her career. 

What she didnt expect from this was falling for the guy of which the art is from. But how can you fall for a guy who doesnt know the past? 

Its not Maxim's fault he cant remeber. He was struck pretty hard and,that left his memory blank. But he does know he is related to Anastasia. So thats something to go off right? 

Together they work to figure it all out. Hopefully the pieces will fall into place and all goes well right? If only things could ever be that simple. 

Just as things are building up things hit a wall. It only one piece of evidence to question everything. What will Maxim do and what does it mean for him and Finley? 

Let me tell you the build up to it was amazing. You get smacked at every perfect moment which will only make you want to read the book in one sitting and calmy wait to reas the next book in the series.
