Diplomacy, danger, and desire collide when Brad Oaks pursues an ingenious international trade proposal that would rescue a family steel business and secure a scarce natural resource for the US. Is it a powerful idea or just a pipedream? New to the Washington, D.C. lobbying scene, Brad’s pursuit of a solution to this political issue takes him from D.C to California to Tokyo as he seeks to thwart an international plot to sabotage America’s infrastructure. Brad has a plan to ease the bureaucratic red tape that’s derailing the Wishbone Pipeline project that’s so crucial to his client, Elgar Steel. After a close call with a bullet from a sniper’s rifle, and the death of the owner of Elgar Steel, Brad is thrown into a tumultuous power struggle that finds him flying off to Tokyo to meet Amaya Mori, a previously-unknown heir to the family business. Brad is powerless to resist this Japanese woman’s sophistication, intellect, and beauty. Just as Brad and Amaya have found each other, the pair find that they are targets of yakuza criminals who are in league with Iran. This faction is determined to claim the Elgar Steel inheritance and unleash their evil plan against the US. Will Brad be able to save the woman he loves and secure the future of the family business?
