A murdered tsar. A missing treasure. One woman holds the key.
Natalie Brandon believes the rumors that Nicholas II, last tsar of Russia, left behind a secret bank account to provide for his family in exile. But getting someone to believe her is harder than finding the account itself. Diagnosed with schizophrenia, Natalie is tormented by a recurring hallucination, the voice of an angel named Belial. Even her sister, a Russian history professor, won’t take her claim seriously…until a blond, blue-eyed Russian spy kidnaps Natalie, claiming she’s the only one who can lead him to the treasure.
But Constantine Dashkov isn’t the only one after the missing millions. The Russian prime minister, Maxim Starinov, will do anything to get the money for himself. Natalie and Constantine must outrun Starinov’s death squad and track the treasure from San Francisco to Moscow to London. The hunt draws in Natalie’s sister, Constantine’s partner, and a loyal Russian family whose only mission is to guard the Romanovs' secret.
With nothing more than Natalie’s ghostly intuition to guide them, the pair must fight for their lives in a race to protect the tsar’s legacy from a greedy despot. Blending suspense, romance, and espionage, The Romanov Legacy is an action-packed thriller that takes an unlikely heroine on one of the world's greatest treasure hunts.
At the end of the story, keep reading for a preview of the forthcoming prequel, The Dante Deception.

Reviewed by Christian Sia for Readers' Favorite The Romanov Legacy (A Natalie Brandon Thriller) by Jenni Wiltz is a spellbinding thriller that follows an unusual treasure hunt; the action is exhilarating and the characters mesmerizing. Natalie Brandon has a powerful revelation, one that no one would believe because of her schizophrenia — Nicholas II, the last tsar of Russia, left a secret bank account with millions for his family. Even though people close to her look at her claims with disbelief, there are some who believe she may be telling the truth. When Constantine, a Russian spy with blue eyes, kidnaps Natalie and goads her into leading him to the treasure, things get complicated, but that is just the beginning. The Russian Prime Minister will do anything to reach the treasure before anyone else, so he puts his hit squad on the tails of Natalie and Constantine. This is a story packed with action and many thrills as the two — Natalie and Constantine — try to stay a step ahead of the Russian Prime Minister's thugs as they race across countries and cities, looking for the treasure. But what if the voice of the angel Belial who speaks to Natalie and her intuition could be wrong? Jenni Wiltz had me well-entertained with her prose and storytelling skills. She creates characters that are interesting and memorable. The fact that Natalie doesn’t seem normal makes her an even more interesting character to follow. The plot is well-imagined and executed with mastery, with swift and surprising turns to pique the reader’s curiosity on every page. The Romanov Legacy (A Natalie Brandon Thriller) by Jenni Wiltz is great entertainment for fans of thrillers and mysteries.
