Celestina, an innocent young woman, and Nikolai, a dangerous Russian mafia mobster, and capo were meant to bound. Celestina married Nikolai after her parents died to honor her father's request. Celestina's father believed Nikolai could safeguard his daughter in this dangerous world. They were complete opposites: she was unfamiliar with violence, and all he knew was violence. Celestina wasn't sure whether she feared Nikolai or his ruthlessness. Nikolai, on the other hand, was captivated by Celestina's pure and innocent beauty, and for the first time in his life, he desired something other than power and violence. He felt a deep pull to her, something he couldn't describe or comprehend. He knew it wasn't love, yet he couldn't resist an urge to make her his own.
