Iron Curtain Meltdown
Lewis Stepka went to London’s Speakers Corner with the hope of finding courage in the past. What he found was Svita Noskov, a tearful plea for help, and a kidnapping he’ll have to pull off right under the conjoined noses of the KGB and CIA. Oh, yeah, and peacock feathers…. More
London, England, 1978
When Army Specialist Lewis Stepka visits Speaker’s Corner, the last thing he expects to find is Svita Noskov pleading for help. He has enough of his own demons to fight. Still, he can’t deny his interest in the beautiful, slightly eccentric Russian.
He discovers Svita’s father works as an engineer in a nuclear power plant at Chernobyl, Ukraine, where he claims a disaster will occur if no one intercedes. The CIA wants whatever information the engineer holds, but in the Cold War, sharing isn’t on Russia’s agenda.
Lewis’s attraction to Svita leads him to a plan a reunion for father and daughter. A dangerous mission that he might be able to pull off because of a unique ability that can aid him in rescuing the engineer from the secure facility.
Still, double crossing the CIA might not be a good idea. But Svita isn’t like any woman Lewis has ever known, and the heart can lead a man where common sense fears to tread.
