A deranged madman hunts the girl he’s lusted after for a century, in a relentless pursuit for vengeance. A prehistoric, mythical beast jealously guards a primeval land, which is leaking into present-day Seattle. A sweet, forbidden passion blossoms between two lovers who steal moments whenever they can, while unbeknownst to them, they’re hunted by a deadly creature.

This review is somewhat complicated for me to write because I have conflicting feelings about this Romanov. I generally enjoy paranormal reads, though there was a bit more romance than I expected in this book.
I liked that the author didn’t just go with one type of supernatural beings in Romanov. I think the author was creative in her use of their abilities and the characteristics they each had. It was nice to see an author step out of the box in a new way.
I’ve always been fascinated by the story of the Romanovs despite how sad it ended for them. I have frequently tried to imagine the different ways their story could have ended had they been vampires, and this book brings some of those ideas to “reality.”
Overall, this was a decent book. I think it will be more appealing to those who like their stories with a bit more romance than I do. I didn’t dislike this book, I just don’t love romance. It’s just not my thing. If you like paranormal romance with some historical figures thrown in and a unique story, Romanov may be for you.
