What if you had to choose between your deepest passion and your one true love? Beautiful and talented, Natalia Oblonova must deny her heart to achieve her dreams of joining the Mariinski Ballet. Becoming the protégée and wife of Count Boris Kussov, an enigmatic, charismatic member of the highest aristocracy is Natalia's ticket to fame and prestige in a cutthroat world of competition and betrayal. But her heart isn’t his. Her heart belongs to an unruly artist, Pierre Riazhin—an artist she left for her place as a socialite. Through wars and deception, passion and lust, nothing can keep Pierre from having what he's always wanted—Natalia. He wants his second chance—his encore.

Dear Readers,Writing ENCORE was an apotheosis for me. I started ballet at the age of two. Natalya, Boris and Pierre lived with me for two years, and I'm so grateful that they chose to "tell me" their story.About the Author:

She holds a degree in Renaissance Studies from Barnard College.Monique is the granddaughter of Baroness Sofia Sara (Sonia) de Gunzburg, and the great-granddaughter of Baron David de Gunzburg, whose magnificent, scholarly library was second only to that of the King of England when it was seized by the Bolsheviks in 1917.She was married to Soviet sports psychologist Grigorii Raiport, and for many years to litigator Ben Walter Pesta. Both men are deceased.Monique and her Persian Chinchilla cat, Sebastian, reside in Los Angeles, CA., though they often return to France to the manor the family still owns in Saint Germain-en-Laye.
