It is November of 1993, and forty-eight-year-old Boris Goryanin realizes he never would have believed it if someone had told him six months earlier of all that he had experienced. He has been kidnapped and nearly killed by the Russian mafia, only to be rescued from death by Lady Melissa Spencer, a beautiful British aristocrat who would later become his mistress. As he flies over the ocean, Boris knows his life has been turned upside down. Now he just needs to figure out how to make things right again.
Boris regrets his fateful decision to accept a proposal from Gavrila Petrovich Kravchuk, the president of a Russian financial-trading corporation. The power-hungry Kravchuk will step on anyone to get what he wants; after Boris realizes Kravchuk has been the mastermind behind his capture, he decides to take matters into his own hands.
In this compelling historical novel based on true events, a saga of undying love is created in the midst of a bitter conflict between oil giants, international financial rogues, and a bloodthirsty mafia. The man caught in the middle of it all must determine whom he can trust and who is deceiving him-before it is too late.
