Praise for Tatiana and Alexander'This has everything a romance glutton could wish for: a bold, talented and dashing hero, a heart-stopping love affair ... It also has - thank goodness - a welcome sense of humour and discernable characters rather than ciphers.'Victoria Moore, Daily MailPraise for The Bronze Horseman`Pulling off the passionate love story embedded in a truly epic narrative is a difficult thing to do. Margaret Mitchell's Gone With the Wind remains the blueprint for the genre, while Tolstoy's War and Peace carries off the literary honours ... it's quickly apparent that the Russian-born author Paullina Simons has the measure of this kind of epic romantic saga ... She is able to make some powerful statements about the durability of the human spirit, but never at the expense of descriptive passages refulgent with power and beauty' Barry Forshaw, amazonPraise for Tully:`Pick up this book and prepare to have your emotions wrung so completely you'll be sobbing your heart out one minute and laughing through your tears the next.... Read it and weep - literally' CompanyPraise for The Girl in Times Square`Simons' sixth novel considers what happens when life suddenly stops being average. Part mystery, part romance, part family drama...in other words, the perfect book' Daily Mail
