Description :

Dmitry Rostoff's world was turned upside-down when he discovered that he became a father to a baby girl born in Moscow. He brings his illegitimate daughter to America, honoring her mother's last wish. Dumping the baby on his mother, the matriarch of the Rostoff clan and President of a world-famous jewelry empire, Rostoff & Co., Dmitry washes his hands off the baby he never wanted in the first place, and dives headlong into running the family business. A strained and complicated relationship with his mother quickly deteriorates after he uncovers her attempt at sabotage. His only salvation is his eleven-year-old son Peter.

Natasha Sokolov, a young Russian woman Dmitry was forced to bring to America as a nanny to smuggle his baby from Moscow, hates her new home, the infamous Zolotoe Selo (Golden Village) Rostoff manor near San Francisco. But she loves baby Katia and her older half-brother Peter and dedicates her life to raising them both. As to their father, Natasha fell in love with him at first sight in Moscow. Soon Dmitry, too, can't imagine himself without the spunky redhead nanny his son christened the Russian Merry Poppins. But the conflict between the mother and son turns into an open war, with both children and Natasha caught in the middle. Dmitry has to choose between the woman he loves and his son's happiness.

His world falls apart for the second time when Natasha, his official fiancé, suddenly disappears. He suspects his mother blackmailed Natasha, but cannot prove anything.

For eighteen years Natasha hides from the Rostoff clan, bound by the ugly family secret, but the death of the family matriarch forces her to reach out and contact Peter Rostoff, who is now an FBI Agent.


Fighting real monsters in the line of duty, Peter battles his own personal demons for years. Separated from the family by his own choice, he hides his shameful feelings toward his half-sister, Kat, now a world-famous artist and sculptor. After Natasha contacts him eighteen years later, he finally decides to uncover the truth about her disappearance and bring his family together again.

Once & Forever is a story about love that survives time and death, betrayal and lies, and triumphs at the end.

About: David Myles Robinson has always had a passion for writing. During the late 1960's and early 1970's, while in college, Robinson worked as a free-lance writer for several magazines and was a staff writer for a weekly minority newspaper in Pasadena, California, called The Pasadena Eagle. However, as he himself admits, upon graduating from San Francisco State University, he decided against the ‘starving writer' route and went to law school, at the University of San Francisco School of Law. It was there that he met his wife, Marcia Waldorf. After graduating from law school in 1975, the two moved to Honolulu, Hawaii and began practicing law. Robinson became a trial lawyer, specializing in personal injury and workers' compensation law. Waldorf eventually became a District Court and ultimately a Circuit Court judge. Upon retiring in 2010, Robinson completed his first novel, Unplayable Lie, which was published by BluewaterPress LLC, in 2010. He has since published four more novels, three of which are legal thrillers set in Honolulu: Tropical Lies, Tropical Judgments, Tropical Doubts, and Tropical Deception. His other two novels are The Pinochet Plot and Son of Saigon. Robinson has also published a book of short travel stories, Conga Line on the Amazon. Robinson and Waldorf divided their time between Honolulu and their second home in Taos, NM for seven years before finally deciding to see what it's like to be full-time mainlanders again. They now live in Taos, where Robinson can pursue his non-writing passions of golf, ski, and travel.
