    Summary

    "The words began out formal, stilted. A way to ease the pain. Maybe if he distanced his emotions he would not feel so empty once he made his departure. Maybe if he were not so emotional on paper, he would not feel so emotional in reality.

    Summary

    He was not his father's son after all.

    It was a sobering thought.

    ***

    A few months after the events of Paris, everything has changed for Gleb. Stripped of his hope, his title, his duty, and his purpose in life, he whiles away the endless days in his new, Parisian flat. Nothing will change; he knows this is to be his life now until he dies. That is, until one day, there comes a knock at the door.

    An old, familiar princess with startling Romanov eyes has come to turn his life upside down once more.

    That's the thing about duty - sometimes it's not what one imagined it to be at all.

    Summary

    “Information traded for safety is suspect anyway,” he adds, with a smile, and nudges the teapot nearer to her.

    Anya nods thoughtfully and pours them both fresh cups.
