Queen of Someday

Before she can become the greatest empress in history, fifteen-year-old Sophie will have to survive her social-climbing mother's quest to put her on the throne of Russia - at any cost. Imperial Court holds dangers like nothing Sophie has ever faced before. In the heart of St. Petersburg, surviving means navigating the political, romantic, and religious demands of the bitter Empress Elizabeth and her handsome, but sadistic nephew, Peter. Determined to save her impoverished family - ;and herself - Sophie vows to do whatever is necessary to thrive in her new surroundings. But an attempt on her life and an unexpected attraction threatens to derail her plans. Alone in a new and dangerous world, learning who to trust and who to charm may mean the difference between becoming queen and being sent home in shame to marry her lecherous uncle. With traitors and murderers lurking around every corner, her very life hangs in the balance. Betrothed to one man but falling in love with another, Sophie will need to decide how much she's willing to sacrifice in order to become the empress she is destined to be. In a battle for the soul of a nation, will love or destiny reign supreme? Queen of Someday is a unique take on the life of young Catherine the Great. The true story of Catherine the Great is one fraught with betrayal, intrigue, and romance. We absolutely fell head over heals for Queen of Someday and would have begged the author for the chance to publish it, had she not already been excited about submitting it to us. Fans of Reign - the new hit TV show on The CW that follows the young life of Mary Queen of Scotts - will love Queen of Someday.
