Ivan Porenski is an Oligarch, one of the super-rich Russians who reside in London, and live a life of excess and luxury. He's also a player. Gorgeously handsome, immaculately groomed and sexily charming, women fall at his feet, they just never say no. Haunted by his less than savoury past, and the guilt of his parent's deaths, he keeps people at arm's length rather than face up to his own demons. Surrounded by security, and a brick wall around his heart, he runs his empire from sumptuous offices in the Canary Wharf Tower. When he meets Elle Reynolds, a young lawyer, he's immediately reminded of the only girl he ever loved, who he left to her fate when he fled Russia. The problem with Elle is that an even wealthier man, his banker, is also pursuing her. Competing with a cultured member of the British aristocracy is difficult for even the wealthiest of foreigners, let alone one carrying around dark secrets and a chequered history. Book 4 of the Corporate Series, Ivan reveals his side of events.
