Ivan Porenski is an Oligarch, one of the super-rich Russians who reside in London. He lives a life of excess and luxury, and he's also a player. Gorgeously handsome, immaculately groomed, and sexily charming, women fall at his feet. Haunted by a less than savoury past, and the guilt over his parent's deaths, he keeps people at arm's length. Rather than face up to his own demons, he surrounds himself with impenetrable security, while he protects his heart with a wall of ice. When he meets Elle Reynolds, a young lawyer, he's immediately reminded of the only girl he ever loved, who he abandoned 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. Part of the 'A Very Corporate Affair' story, Ivan reveals his side of events, and carries on with the story. Contains adult language and scenes. Books 1-3 should be read first.
