Anya Karekanova returns to continue the story begun in Love Thy Enemy. Months have passed since she was sent to Japan, to protect her from an unknown enemy intent on using her to get to her master. Now, they seem to have forgotten about her. Her working holiday is going smoothly. She has a pair of gorgeous twins to keep her satisfied, and her beloved master is safe and sound, just a phone-call away. Her project on behalf of the Dragons is proceeding, and no one’s tried to kill her in a while.
A bright-eyed, ambitious young doctor walks into her life, and she seems like just the thing that Anya needs to complete her project. Ito Chiyu is brilliant, beautiful and wilful, and it looks like she’s going to take to the Power like a duck to water. She may be just what the Dragons need to revitalize their clan, and that makes her Anya’s ticket back home to Russia.
But just when things are starting to come together, one tiny, little problem brings her crashing back down to reality. Her enemies have not forgotten about her after all. Funny how a single bullet can ruin your whole day.
