Patricia Grasso is one of the greatest historical authors to date. In her latest release, Seducing the Prince we are treated to the visit of the Kazanov brothers. This story is based on Viktor and his battle to find true love and happiness.

Married to an Earl she can never love, let alone breath the same air with, Regina Bradford devotes herself to her writing, harboring the dream of becoming a published novelist. Her dreams become shattered when her husband is murdered and the story she is writing starts to resemble too real to life. When she becomes a suspect in her husband’s murder, Prince Viktor Kazanov comes to her defense. After all, his wife was also murdered, along with Regina’s husband. You see, Viktor’s wife was Regina’s husband’s mistress. Ahhh…the plot thickens……

Prince Viktor Kazanov has had enough of his wife’s infidelity and tells her that he intends to divorce her as soon as possible. Of course she doesn’t believe that he would ever bring that kind of scandal to his royal family, but the threat is all too real. When she is murdered, along with her lover, Viktor is the first one they suspect as the murderer. After all, didn’t he just threaten her with divorce? But Regina, his wife’s lover’s wife (confused yet?) tells the court that he couldn’t have killed his wife or her husband for that matter, as he was with her, Regina, all night on the night of the murders.

Well, you can just imagine all of the intrigue and confusion that follows in this story. But what else happens is this, a love so strong that nothing can rip it apart. Viktor and Regina are like two parts of a soul that have yet to meet, and when they do, the passion is intense and the romance is heart melting. These two characters have been through hell and back with their spouses and deserve happiness with each other. You will find yourself rooting for them throughout the whole book.

Ms. Grasso’s characters are riveting and wonderful. All of the plots twists and turns will keep the reader turning the pages. But what will keep the reader glued to the pages and not wanting to put it down? The love that develops with Viktor and Regina. Sigh, if only true love could be that sweet! Happy reading!!!
