His only thought is what will she do and think if his deeds are every uncovered and she thinks he really doesn’t love her for who she is. Will they get this second chance at love or will their love be torn apart?
I really enjoyed this read watching love bloom as these two falls for each other again. I loved the twists and turns in a plot that was very entertaining mixing fact with fiction in a very intriguing story that is well written with delightful characters. I loved how easy it was to like Anna when the going got tough she stood her ground but was still very much a lady that has no trouble showing her spunk when needed. Mischa was not only handsome but true to his cause. My heart really went out to him that he followed the orders given but truly loved Anna and did his best to show her. This story has such depth from the characters to the plot that it really pulls you in. I enjoyed the supporting characters loved how Anna and her sister got along and taught each other how to be sneaky. They are both a little on the cheeky side which really made them believable characters. I even found a few chuckles and laughs along the way. The author gives such detail to each scene that you have no trouble picturing them as they unfold. With a very delightful plot and characters it is a very believable story. I can’t wait to see who she picks next in this wonderful series.
To begin with, upon seeing the blurb, I knew Ms. Broadfield would get everything Russian right, and thus merits a full, shiny star. The Russian last names, patronyms, nicknames are all spot on; nothing was left to chance, and it’s also evident that she did extensive research to make the story as authentic as possible, for which I will be eternally grateful. The historical context is impeccable, and most intimately tied in with the romance. I loved the abundance of little details, which served to enrich the story while not detracting from it.
While the premise seemed rather predictable from the onset, I knew my heart was eventually going to break for both Anna and Misha. They had not seen each other in six years, and I very much appreciated that while Anna’s love for Misha never faltered, she was nevertheless cautious and reasonable and needed to make sure that what had once been was still there, and this from both sides. The prose is subdued and sublime, with a bittersweet undertone that reflects the melancholy of the Russian soul, as well as the inevitable heartbreak that will crush both Anna and Misha. There were a few little things that marred the whole, among others when a romantic moment occurs, a mishap involving puppies made the interlude somewhat unsavoury for me, and I was perplexed at addressing a Russian princess by her first name! However, where I had thought a misunderstanding unnecessary, I was proved wrong, as a national disaster was barely averted. ONE LAST KISS is remarkable because it’s very distinctive, as it shows us the Russian side of the war, all the characters are very well defined, and Anna and Misha are very engaging; the romance is absolutely lovely!
I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
