She never imagined her heart could ever dance again
She never imagined her heart could ever dance again...
Former dance student Sara Hart had aspired to grace the stage on Broadway, but a reckless decision forced her to renounce that dream. Years later, while struggling with an ungratifying job and an even more unsatisfying love life, she literally stumbles upon a dangerously sexy stranger who sends her heart-and her body-into hyperdrive. His touch makes her feel alive again and sparks a desire to rebuild her dance career. But Sara is still haunted by the demons of her past. One dark lie could cost her everything.
He'd stopped believing in love...
Real estate mogul Tom Wright caters to the rich and famous. He lives the life of the perfect bachelor-partying hard and dating the most beautiful women in Manhattan. But he has one golden rule - no commitments. Ever. Then he meets sexy Sara Hart, and something about her makes him want to throw the damn rule book out the window. Every time she's near, the blood in his veins pulses with a raging fire he can't contain. But Tom's shadowed history is resurfacing, unearthing ghosts he'd rather remain buried.
Will this wicked dance be their last?

There, blazing like fiery suns, and staring at me while their owner waited in line to place an order, was the most mesmerizing set of olive-colored eyes I had ever seen.
Then I saw the rest of him, the man who owned those eyes. My heart stopped. No, I mean it. It really did stop. All the oxygen was sucked from my lungs. Stunned, my body was boneless yet stiff at the same time. Flustered face aflame, my cheeks burned as our eyes locked for an eternity.
Fine. It was a mere second, but it'd been a cosmic second. One in which I was weightless and lifted off the floor in a trance. As my disembodied-self floated toward him, he glanced away and headed straight to the counter, deflating me and planting me back on solid ground.
Yep. As quickly as the spell was cast, the enchantment was broken.
Or so I thought. As soon as he spoke, the hands on the clock stopped spinning once more.
"An iced double. Large," he said to the barista. His voice was velvety chocolate melting on my tongue, smooth and sensual.
Motionless, I gawked at the mysterious stranger as if I was some high-schooler ogling her crush.
I should be flying back to the dance studio.
And peel my gaze off that man? Good luck. Broad shoulders, definitely over six feet tall and golden brown mussed up hair-yeah, don't see many such fine specimens around here. And the fragrance trailing behind him? Surely it had to be some foreign cologne I wouldn't know how to even pronounce. Dressed in a ludicrously expensive, tailored gray suit, no doubt he was the CEO of a very important corporation. This guy oozed of success and power.
They didn't take long to prepare his coffee. Figures.
He retrieved his order and turned to leave.
Oh, crap. He's coming back my way.
"Excuse me, miss," he said as he stopped in front of me.
Everyone freeze-framed around us, all sound completely muted. Even the dust particles dancing in the sunlight were suspended in time. I peered up into the deep, green ocean of his eyes, my eyelids batting in slow motion, entranced by some unknown force. I curled a smile at the corners of my mouth, expecting that he was experiencing the same thing-we were spellbound in a magic universe and were sharing a moment.
Then he smiled. "Um, do I know you?"
The room came alive again-very quickly.
" I don't think so."
"Oh?" A glimmer of disappointment settled over his eyes. "You always block the door for random strangers?" he asked, a sparkle returning to his gaze.
As he spoke, I could barely keep my eyes off his mouth. I fumbled through my words, realizing I was keeping him and the patrons behind him from leaving the coffee house. "Oh, um...yes. I mean, no. Sorry, I just..."
His lips stretched into a crooked grin, perhaps amused at my stutter. Or maybe he knew the effect his body had on me, but before I could say another word, he leaned down and whispered in my right ear, "While I'd love nothing more than to gaze into your pretty brown eyes, you are going to have an angry mob on your hands in about two seconds."
I shivered as his breath tickled my skin. He locked eyes with me, winked and with one look, nudged me to the side. Speechless and dazed by the melodic chime of his sultry voice, I slid to the side and let him pass.
"See ya 'round," he said with a playful smile as he rushed out the door.
Okay. Who was that and what the hell just happened?
Compelled to know, I followed after him, but lost him in a sea of corporate suits. My heart squeezed in my chest, and for the briefest second, I was sad he was gone.
My phone rang, shaking me out of the bewitchment, the office number bleeping on the screen.
Probably Pinhead.
"Um...hello?" My voice nearly trembled.
"Sara, girl, where are you?"
"Martha? Oh, thank God. I thought you were..."
"The Witch? No, but if you don't get your ass over here, the gates of hell will open. Alexei is at it again."
"Why am I not surprised? I'm on my way. Be there in a few minutes."
