Russia, 1910. Valentina Ivanova is the darling of St. Petersburg's elite aristocracy--until her romance with a Danish engineer creates a terrible scandal and her parents push her into a loveless engagement with a Russian count. Meanwhile, Russia itself is bound for rebellion. With the Tsar and the Duma at each other's throats, and the Bolsheviks drawing their battle lines, the elegance and opulence of Tsarist rule are in their last days. And Valentina will be forced to make a choice that will change not only her own life, but the lives of those around her forever.

RNA 2011 Shortlisted for Romantic Novel of the Year and Historical Romantic Novel of the Year Award. I enjoyed this book and like the romance tied in with the Russian revolution. I would recommend this read for historical romance lovers.
