  OneLastKiss_500X750 (1)

Title: One Last Kiss
Author: Ally Broadfield
Tagline: He might finally land the girl of his dreams. Or he could lose everything.
Series Name: It’s In His Kiss #2
Imprint: Entangled Select Historical
London, 1812

Captain Mikhail Abromovich would rather single-handedly face the entire French army than follow orders to deceive Anna, the woman of his heart, by feigning a courtship to hide his covert activities.

Ever since a gossip sheet revealed the details of her extensive dowry, Princess Anna Tarasova has been overrun by fortune-hunting lords. When her childhood sweetheart mysteriously appears in London and asks to court her, it seems too good to be true.

For Mikhail, who is both soldier and spy, being chosen to represent Russia in secret negotiations with Britain should be the assignment of a lifetime. But once his deception is revealed, he’s certain Anna won’t believe his love is real.

What people are saying
“…gives you warm fuzzies and leaves you feeling contented.” –Meghan L., Goodreads
“…very distinctive…the romance is absolutely lovely!” –Monique, Goodreads

Mini Excerpt:
Anna turned to him. “I must apologize for Natalya. She doesn’t mean any harm.”
“Of course not,” he agreed, his stormy eyes meeting hers.
Her stomach flip-flopped as his intense gaze momentarily held her spellbound. “Nevertheless, she needs to come to terms with her lot as a younger sibling.”
Anna hated the inane, formal conversation she was forcing through her lips. It used to be so easy for her to say anything to him, and now she could barely form a coherent sentence. Especially when he studied her so closely, as if he was trying to steal the thoughts from her mind.

Author Bio:
Ally Broadfield Profile Picture (1)

Ally has worked as a horse trainer, director of marketing and development, freelance proofreader, and a children's librarian, among other things. None of them were as awesome as writing romance novels (though the librarian gig came closest). She lives in Texas and is convinced her house is shrinking, possibly because she shares it with three kids, five dogs, a cat, a rabbit, and assorted reptiles. Oh, and her husband.

Ally likes to curse in Russian because very few people know what she's saying, and spends most of what would be her spare time letting dogs in and out of the house and shuttling kids around. She has many stories in her head looking for an opportunity to escape onto paper. She writes historical romance set in Regency England and Imperial Russia.

Top Ten Places I Want to Visit by Ally Broadfield
I grew up in a very small town in northern Michigan, but we took yearly trips to visit relatives in Ohio, and also took an annual camping trip to Canada along the shore of Lake Superior, so I never felt isolated. I was also an avid reader, and I loved books like Where the Wild Things Are and A Wrinkle in Time, which really sparked my budding imagination and desire to explore new places.
We moved to Ohio when I was ten, and I was lucky to attend one of the few public schools that offered Russian as a foreign language. When I was in high school, I went on an amazing class trip to the Soviet Union that sparked a life-long love of travel. I’ve since been lucky to visit many parts of the U.S., Ireland, England, Germany, Hungary, the Czech Republic, and two more trips to Russia. There are still many more places I want to see, many of them inspired by books I’ve read and movies I’ve watched.
The Icehotel, Jukkasjarvi, Sweden The same year I asked for a snow block maker for Christmas, I read Snow Treasure, a story about children in Norway during World War II who used their sleds to sneak gold bullion past the occupying Nazi soldiers. The snow block maker was much harder to use than I had imagined, so the only thing I was able to make was a small wall. Instead, I recruited my neighbors to help smuggle various objects out of our yards on our sleds, but my wish to spend the night in a snow fort never happened, so now I’m hoping to stay overnight in a room at the Icehotel in Sweden, which, as you can probably guess, is made entirely out of carved ice.
Hawaii I want to visit Hawaii, but probably not for the reason you think. I was in elementary school when Mount St. Helens erupted in 1980. I had read about volcanoes in my science book, and was fascinated by them in a detached sort of way. The images of the eruption were vivid on the news. It was my first introduction to the devastating effects of natural disasters and has left me with a desire to see a volcano first hand.
Drake Passage, Antarctica I’ve always been an animal lover, and after reading Mr. Popper’s Penguins when I was seven, I lobbied for months for my parents to buy me a penguin for my birthday. It never happened, but if I can find a way to do it without harming the environment, I would love to visit Antarctica and see wild penguins in their natural habitat.
The Tulip fields in the Netherlands – This one is a case of mistaken identity. As was the case for many children who were born in the 1970s, I looked forward to watching the Wizard of Oz on television every year, and I loved the scene where they venture through the poppy fields in the movie, so when I came across a picture of tulip fields in the Netherlands, I knew I needed to visit. Someone eventually set me straight about the flowers, but I’d still love to see
those gorgeous fields of tulips.
Salzburg, Austria – Another movie I anxiously waited to watch every year was The Sound of Music, and even though I knew the story by heart by the time I was eight, it was imperative that we didn’t miss the opening scene with the panoramic views of the mountains. Visiting Salzburg is at the top of my travel bucket list.
Amsterdam, The Netherlands – This one is a relatively new addition to my list. I’m a huge fan of John Green, and I read The Fault in Our Stars in January of 2012 when it released. Hazel and Augustus’s visit to Amsterdam was so wonderful that it’s also at the top of my bucket list.
The Trans-Siberian Railroad – I’ve wanted to go on a long train ride ever since I read Murder on the Orient Express, and that desire was further fueled by an overnight train ride from St. Peterburg (then Leningrad) to Moscow in 1989. The Trans-Siberian Railroad is the longest railroad in the world at 5772 miles, and I would love to ride the length of it (though I sincerely hope no one gets murdered).
The Great Wall of China – I read Betty Bao Lord’s Spring Moon when I was in high school, during second semester of my freshman year, at the same time that we studied China in history class. I was and continue to be fascinated by the culture of Imperial China and would love to see the Great Wall.
Breda, Holland – During World War II, my maternal grandfather was a bombardier on a B-17 that was shot down in the town of Breda, which was under German occupation. Two members of the crew were killed in the crash, and the others were captured by the Germans and held in a prison camp until the war ended. The German’s simply let the prisoners go when they were ordered to retreat, and my grandfather and the other prisoners were taken care of by the people of the town until the Americans arrived to take them home.
Westerburg, Germany My grandfather was of German descent, but he cut off all ties with his family in Germany during the war. His surname was Westerburg and I know he had cousins who lived in the town, so I hope to someday visit.
Do you have any recommendations for me of places I should add to my list? What places do you want to visit?
