Two people haunted by their past… The collision of two damaged hearts…
Meet Elizabeth Williams. She is at the airport on an important work assignment. If everything goes smoothly, after three years of hard work, she’ll get a promotion and a much-needed raise. Elizabeth is putting her life back on track after it was ripped out from under her feet four years ago when she lost her parents along with all her dreams. Standing here, she believes her life is going to change for the better any moment now. Nothing can go wrong, right?
Meet Ryan Price. He came to Moscow on business. Right now, Ryan is standing at the airport looking at a ‘present’ from his brother, judging by the sign a beautiful young woman is holding. Damn his brother for not cancelling this arrangement as Ryan asked.
Miscommunications and misunderstandings and a brilliant but painful love story begins. There will be a scary flight, lovely breakfasts, long evening conversations, sharing a secret or two, discovering one another, a lot of laughter, tender moments and some tears, a fight and, of course, the I-am-ready-for-the-end-of-the-world kiss. Somewhere along the way, they won’t be able to fight their feelings any longer. For the first time in his life, Ryan will experience a different shade of lust. And for the first time in her life, Elizabeth will have to trust despite all of the times she has been hurt. Will these two wounded lost souls find love, peace and comfort in each other or will they just break each other more? Is it a train wreck of a love story or a happily ever after?
A person’s mind is a strange thing, or maybe it’s just mine. Here I am, in this magnificent city of love, I should have great time, explore it, enjoy my time, smile, jump for joy even. Instead, I am sitting in a small park near Notre Dame thinking how I got here. No, I know I was brought by some fancy car Ryan told me to take. I mean one minute I am in Moscow without a job and the next I am in Paris twenty grand richer?
A right place at the right time?
Maybe when life slaps you all the time for three years and then suddenly gives you a cookie you are bound to have doubts, feel uncertainty?
I also don’t understand Ryan’s intentions. He brought me here, so I can go on an excursion? And he’s paying me for it? Nina says I can be naïve, but not that much. Who am I to him? A charity case? An experiment? I know he wants or will want something in return. I used to see only good in people, but that ended when so many people turned their backs on me when my world was in pieces.
I am also scared. Scared because I am opening up to him, I trust him for no logical reason. Even with Granny, my blood, I was more careful with my trust. The same goes for Nina. I am afraid that Ryan will break this trust and my heart along the way.
On second thought, how much damage can he do if I’m already wrecked?
