Between the music and the dance, theirs is a love to find. But what if that space is too wide to cross? A career as a professional ballet dancer at the Metropolis Ballet Theater, Lidiya’s days are a whirl of music, performance, rehearsal, and teaching students at the theater’s conservatory. All those things are what she’s worked for. All those things make her days chaotic and wonderful. Except … wonderful.
Except even in the world of professional dance, where everything moves at the speed of the music, everything can turn upside-down. When the company’s opening of Le Corsaire is threatened, Lidiya’s only thoughts are how the show can be salvaged.
Not of falling in love.
Patrick’s life had been ballet until nine months after a one-night stand left him a father. With his daughter needing special care, he exited the professional world without looking back. But dance is a community and a phone call from Metropolis Ballet Theater’s director, desperate to save the run of Le Corsaire, is like a siren song he can’t ignore.
And Lidiya is the woman he can’t take his eyes away from.
But people have limits. Ballet demands perfection. You don’t fall in love with your partner.
