is the fourth Falcon son, born and raised in Russia. His mother,
Varushka, still dreams of Amos Falcon, the man who fathered her child
but saw little of her after that. Like his father Leonid is a smart
businessman. Unlike his father he has a warm heart.
That’s Leonid, part dark melancholy Russian, part generous and engaging.
At the wedding of his brother Marcel in Paris he meets Perdita, a
journalist looking for a great story. Just at first she conceals her
professional interest in him. When he finds out he’s displeased but by
then they’re in love, although neither of them will admit it.
It takes a daring act from Perdita to make Leonid realise how completely
he loves and needs her.
