Dirt-poor as a child, Nick Cutter survived the war-torn frozen hell of the Siege of Leningrad, but saw his mother starve to death. He grew up determined to get everything the rich had-and more. From a brutal Soviet orphanage to a plantation in the steamy jungles of the Caribbean, and from sultry, violent Havana to the dangerous streets of Santo Domingo, Nick fought to build himself an empire. Then, there is Luz - Nick loved and lusted for her from the moment he saw her. But Luz has secrets: beneath her glamour and sensuality, she is determined to challenge a corrupt political system. And though Nick's business empire will one day bring him into conflict with the most brutal dictator in the Caribbean, his greatest struggle will be for the love and life of the only woman he has ever truly loved.
