Queen of tomorrow coverQueen of Tomorrow (Stolen Empire #2)

Sophie—now Catherine, Grand Duchess of Russia—had a tough first year at Imperial Court. Married at sixteen to Grand Duke Peter, heir to the throne, and settled in their own palace, things are finally looking up. As a new day dawns, she thinks only of securing her future, and the future of their country, during one of the greatest political upheavals of her time. Fighting desperately against forces trying to depose the Empress Elizabeth and put the young Prince Ivan on her throne, Sophie soon finds herself in the middle of a war brewing between her beloved Prussia, and her new empire. But even as she navigates the fragile political landscape, she quickly realizes that she has only begun to discover the tangled web of deceit and infidelity woven over the lavish court of Oranienbaum Palace.

When a strange and delicate alliance forms between the young couple, she glimpses a future of happiness, only to see it lost in a moment at the hands of those who still seek to end her life—and prevent her reign. Out of favor with the empress and running out of options, Sophie will have to sacrifice her own innocence on the altar of Russia if she is to save the nation, and herself. To survive, she will have to do the unthinkable, betray those closest to her and become something greater and more dangerous than she ever imagined she could be… a queen.

I have thoroughly enjoyed the first two books in this series. This is historical fiction very loosely based on the life of Catherine the Great.  It is not squeaky clean but since this is based on actual history there is no way to write this story without some content. Very memorable story.

I can’t wait for the final book in this series.

Some sexual content nothing graphic and most content is simply implied… talk of mistresses, plotting to create an heir. Violence/abuse but again not overly graphic.
