Captive of Desire

Laddy Penreith was seventeen the night she fell in love with Soviet dissident Mischa Busnetsky. Hemmed in by circumstance and watchful eyes, the two lovers could explore their passion only in words.
Eight years later — years Mischa spent in the Gulag— the memory of that night and Mischa’s voice was still all Laddy knew of love. When he was suddenly released and exiled to the West, she ran to him. In Laddy’s arms and love Mischa was reborn.
But Mischa had learned suspicion in a hard school, and still there were enemies working to keep them apart. All too soon an act of betrayal so poisoned their love that the powerful, passionate connection that had once sustained them both seemed destined now to break them.
