Books about the Romanovs and Imperial Russia / Imperial Winds

Hi everyone! I've come across a novel entitled IMPERIAL WINDS by Pricilla Napier. I skimmed some of the chapters and in one chapter, it mentioned some details about Ella's life. Does anyone had read or familiar with this book?

Rulers Prior to Nicholas II / Tzar Ivan IV the Terrible

Ivan was a cruel and metally unstable young man even before he became a tsar at the age of 17. But after marrying Anastasia Romanovna, she was the only one capable of calming his furies. This is quite interesting actually. But why did Anastasia died at a very early age? It was also said that after she died, Ivan became even more ruthless. Any portraits of Anastasia? Thanks!

Hellooo! I'm just wondering what kind of relationship Ella had with the other grand duchesses and grand dukes. Did she get along very well with them? I'm also curious about her "alleged" infatuation for Prince Nicholas of Greece. I've even read somewhere that there had been rumour in St. Petersburg that she and Paul had an affar! :o What can you say to all of these???
