~ Olympic Gold Medalists Kate Peterson (U.S.) and Alexei Petrova (Russia) haven’t seen each other in eight years—not since their teenage affair ended after Alexei was forced back to Russia. But in the here and now, they’re about to be reunited at the opening ceremonies of the Winter Olympics in Squaw Valley, California.
Kate's agreed to participate in the Torch Lighting Ceremony because she’s on the verge of losing her eyesight to a mysterious illness, and she can’t afford the experimental surgery that could restore her vision. With a little luck she just might land an endorsement deal at the Olympics—her only shot at funding the surgery.
Alexei's living in the States now, where he’s made a fortune selling “himself”. He’s also made enemies with a U.S. senator who wants him deported. But his plight becomes secondary after he runs into Kate at the Olympics. Clearly, she’s hiding something, and he’s shocked when he finds out what.
Once Alexei learns of Kate’s illness, saving her becomes his top priority—but will he save her only to be forced, once again, from her life?
