I have no intention of quitting the series. (It is a series, not a serial. There's a difference.) The third book, Russian Dawn, is underway and I hope to have it out by the end of March. That will be Latasha and Iosif's story. The series will come full circle with Giovanni and the daughter of Maksim and Olivia. I don't have a title for that one yet.(less)

Yes, I have two more books planned in this series: Russian Dawn, which will tell Latasha and Iosif's story, is due out by the end of March. A fourth book brings the series full circle with Giovanni and the daughter of Maksim and Olivia. I don't have a title for the fourth book yet, but it will probably be released in the summer of 2017.(less)
