En romantisk og dels erotisk sjakkroman(!) skrevet av den engelske IM Jovanka Houska (gift med den norske sjakkspilleren Arne Hagesæther og delvis bosatt i Bergen) sammen med forfatteren James Essinger.

Forlagets egen omtale:

Meet Ivana ('call me Vanny') Jones, a sexy, beautiful, warm-hearted professional chess-player. She has a problem: she's only attracted to guys who can beat what's she to do when a chess amateur, the Russian billionaire Boris Bogolyubov, proposes marriage?

Not only that, but as Vanny tries to achieve her lifelong dream of becoming a chess grandmaster, she develops a crush on Norwegian sex-god Sven while also falling for a stunning and adoring Frenchwoman. Meanwhile, Vanny's hoping a revolutionary new drug treatment will save her best friend Charlotte's life.

Set in London, Monaco, Budapest, Helsinki, Odessa, New York...and Leicester, this sparkily written, passionate, emotional and entertaining novel will rock your boat...even if you've never shouted 'Checkmate!'

En av mange positive leseranmeldelser på nettet:

This is not the type of novel I would usually go for, as I am not particularly interested in chess or steamy sex scenes, of which there are plenty! However, I found the novel entertaining and enjoyed the James Bond style action towards the end. I think Vanny probably overlooked the most attractive of the men though, the friend ‘with benefits’, but then so often we can’t see what’s under our nose! Would recommend as a good beach or travel read.
