Owned by the Russian mob, Tanya Kozlov travels from Moscow to hot, humid New Orleans to blackmail businessman Charles Dugan. One look at the handsome billionaire in a white linen suit and her heart betrays her mission. To gain his trust, she embraces the fantasy world of his antebellum vacation resort and shares information about the men she works for. But can he see beyond her dark past?
Against his better judgment, Charles grants Tanya sanctuary. To abandon her would sign her death warrant, and he has no choice but to trust her if he hopes to thwart his enemies. Yet as she trades in stiletto heels for southern gowns, he can’t help but fall under the spell of her stunning beauty, creative talent, and unwavering loyalty. Can he keep her safe, and is she worth the risk?
