Has 45-year-old Sylvie Russet survived the terror attack that has altered the landscape for two of America’s most prominent business and political families, the Russets and the Herricks? Called to the scene in Caracas, 26 year-old Jocelyn Russet must take charge, save lives and reunite three families. There she receives a troubling new business legacy. What’s really going on in the $10 billion biotechnology business that Nando Tagiuri and Jean Gabin are sworn to protect, alongside the Herricks, and why does Joss alone hold the key to its destiny? Parallel action unfolds on Cyprus, where danger looms as Tiffin and Aurore close in on Greek tycoon Hector Mavros, the suspected war criminal. In the Virginia countryside, David Kay pursues his heart’s desire as Jocelyn and her father lock horns with the Scottish matriarch Kate Russet. A power play in Iceland reveals Kate as the formidable adversary of Ambassador Herrick as well. Meanwhile, the fiery love affair between two heiresses of different generations—Jocelyn and Patience Herrick, 53—is over. “Driven from the garden, Jocelyn searches for true love but she needs an heir.” The pressure is on. “Show me the legacy of a lesbian couple,” challenges Jocelyn’s English mother. To maintain stability Jocelyn must protect intimacy with her first love, August Canoncourt, and also with Zander Duffield, her partner in both work and high altitude mountaineering—and now in espionage. In a race against time, erotic tension builds in the most taboo relationship of all. Once again, Jocelyn’s fate will turn on one big night.
