From the Author
The Dante Deception is the second book in my Natalie Brandon thriller series, a prequel to The Romanov Legacy. I wanted to take you back in time and show you what's really unfolding behind the scenes. You'll learn more about Natalie's past, see how she got those scars on her arms, and find out what happens when her relationship with her beloved sister, Beth, is pushed to the breaking point.
You'll also meet new characters who will return in the next couple of books (well, the ones I don't kill will return, let's put it that way). You'll meet a British baron who'd rather steal than get a real job...and the guilt-ridden son he raised to follow in his footsteps. There's a family of Russian mobsters who rose from the ranks of the vory v zakone to become rich and powerful oligarchs - but who can't find happiness, no matter how much money and power they possess. There's a talented forger, adrift and helpless when he runs afoul of both the baron and the mobsters. Throw Constantine, Viktor, Vadim, and Liliya into the mix, and Natalie and Beth have their hands full!
From a real-life museum heist in Montreal to the steps of the Bolshoi in Moscow to Natalie's beloved Valencia Street in San Francisco, I hope you enjoy the characters and settings. I'm hard at work on the next two Natalie books, causing more trouble for pretty much everyone. I can't wait to show you what happens next.
