About the Book

In this exciting legal thriller of page-turning suspense, a tough yet compassionate young woman disguises herself as a law student so she could save her friend’s life. Nina Pavlova, once a poor immigrant from Russia, is now an accomplished, American, theater student willing to risk everything to help her friend. Amandine Dubois is the young, revolutionary who fled from Haiti on a wooden boat to escape persecution and find American freedom. While in America, she is imprisoned and faces deportation. She is represented by Nina and Steve Peterson, a wealthy attorney who becomes intrigued with Amandine’s plight and with Nina’s mastery of the law. Joined together by their unified desire to see Amandine find refuge in America and enriched by their magnetic passion towards one another, Nina and Steve’s professional relationship teeters on romance. As the story unravels, Steve finds that there are many hidden layers underneath the smile of a Russian Doll. Cover design by Mike Stromberg
