Book Synopsis

Natasha remembers little from her Russian childhood, other than the lingering nightmares of her mother's tragic death. So when someone close to her hands her a one-way ticket to Russia, along with the deed to her family farm, and then is brutally murdered, she has little confidence about what awaits her in that distant land.

With doubt and uncertainty, Natasha has no choice but to leave her life in America for an unknown future. Once overseas, the terrifying facts as to why she was really summoned home come to light.

Fact one: Monsters do exist.
Fact two: The only thing keeping those monsters out of the world is an ancient mural hidden below her family's farm.
Fact three: The mural that keeps the evil out of the world is falling apart.
The final fact: It's up to Natasha to restore it and save the world from a horror unlike anything seen before.

Luckily, Natasha isn't alone in her mission. Three Russian Knights are tasked with protecting her from the demons as she restores the mural. And leading the Knights is the handsome and strong Anatoly, who seems to be everything Natasha could hope for in a man. Unfortunately, there is one huge problem. Her Knights are forbidden from having relationships with the artists they protect, and Anatoly is a hardcore rule follower. But rules cannot stop the way she feels.

When a horrifying demon breaches the barrier and pulls Anatoly inside the mural, Natasha can’t help but charge, once again, into the unknown—this time to save the man she secretly loves. Now on the demons’ turf, she risks her own life to free the very one who is supposed to be protecting her. Little does she realize that if she should fail, it could mean the destruction of the very last barrier shielding mankind. Will Anatoly refuse Natasha’s help? Or will he finally realize, when love is at stake, the rules will be broken.

Why am I waiting on this book?

I will begin by stating that this novel 
seriously rocks.  Very seriously, indeed!!
First of all, there's art involved,
and that attracted my attention fast.
Then, I discovered that, rather than
being a 'damsel in distress', 
Natasha becomes the savior of the
man she secretly loves.....
Add to all of this the setting of the novel,
which is Russia, and throw in
some paranormal activity -- with demons, 
no less, which our 
intrepid heroine must do battle
with, at the risk of her life.....
And all for LOVE. I'm totally in love myself,
with this book, which I will
 not, NOT rest until I make it mine!!!!

Thank God it's not an ebook!!!!!

 What do you think of my choice?
What incredibly fabulous

    1. Hi, Jessica!

      How nice that your niece and nephew come from Russia! For some reason, that country has always fascinated me, although no one in my family comes from there. I guess Tolstoy and Dostoyevsky are responsible for that!

  3. It had me at Russia, really. But PRETTY COVER, which also helps. ;) Great pick!
