Many of you have been asking about the secondary characters in THE PRINCE’S GAMBLE, especially Peter and Tatiana. You clearly sensed there was something there and wanted to know more about it . . .
So yes, there is a sequel to THE PRINCE’S GAMBLE and yes, it features none other than Peter and Tatiana and a mysterious, sexy man who is not what he seems.
The tentative title of the book is TO CATCH A PRINCESS, although titles are always something we play around with for a variety of reasons. This working title was inspired by Cary Grant/Grace Kelly motion picture TO CATCH A THIEF since most of Peter and Tatiana’s book will be set at the Ivanov casino in Monaco and since part of the suspense revolves around a serious of high end jewelry heists. SO EXCITING!
How I wish I could visit Monaco for some real life inspiration, but sadly, it’ll just have to be research. The site for the principality actually has some great information as well as a smartphone app! Perfect for when I’m on the train and need some quick information.
So what is TO CATCH A PRINCESS about? Think jewel thief to start, but add a big dose of revenge that will threaten Peter and Tatiana’s lives. Think haute couture fashion show loaded with priceless Russian jewelry and relics, just waiting to be stolen. Think of an arranged marriage for Tatiana and a betrayal she never expected from the man she has come to love . . .
Sigh. I’m having so much fun with this! The glamour and the danger. Fast cars and dangerous mountain curves. Money, jewels and of course, romance.
Big sigh. I can’t wait to finish it so you can read it. As soon as we have a final title and publication date, I will be sure to share with you!
