Her mother's deathbed revelation that she is a descendant of Nicholas II, Russia's last tsar, launches reclusive Kate Gavrill on a bold search for a lost family fortune. But nothing is simple in the tragic history of the Romanov clan. Only by finding the rarest of precious gems - a fabulous, long-missing alexandrite - can Kate claim her treasure. At her side as she journeys across continents is Simon Blake, a respected New York gemologist, whose powerful attraction to Kate is undercut by deep fears about her mission.
In their daring quest, they confront Colombian jewel thieves, blood-thirsty Ukrainian mafiya, and a sinister cleric trained in mind control, each hoping to seize the Romanov Stone. Haunted by her past, driven by a promise to restore her family's name, Kate gambles all for a prize she may never attain.

“History, suspense, romance - The Romanov Stone has it all.” (New York Times best-selling author Antoinette May)
Loved the story and this performance by the narrator is one of his finest yet. The timing of story breaks and chapter divisions were perfect. Loved the Russian characters that came alive with the narration. A favorite.
