Description

Anastasia Mikhelson is the rising star of the New York City Ballet. She's sacrificed creature comforts, a social life, as well as her own physical well-being for perfection in dance. Even her reputation as The Ice Queen doesn't faze her. Though Ana's at the peak of her career, competition from a new and noteworthy dancer puts all she's worked for in jeopardy.

While Natalie Frederico has shown herself to be a prodigy when it comes to ballet, she much prefers modern dance and living on her own terms. Life is too short for anything else. However, when the opportunity to dance with the New York City Ballet is thrust upon her, it's not like she could say no. Dealing with the company's uptight lead is another story, however. When the two are forced to work side-by-side, sparks begin to fly onstage and off.

        July 11, 2016
        Brayden (Sweet Hearts) combines heat and tenderness in this tale of two ballerinas who are both determined to be the best. Ultra-driven ice queen Anastasia Mikhelson, the daughter of a famous Russian ballet dancer, is doing all she can to live up to her famous father, ignoring everything else. Natalie Frederico left the high-stakes world of ballet years ago, moving to Los Angeles and embracing modern dance. But when the New York City Ballet comes calling after her L.A. show closes, she accepts the offer to return. At first, Natalie and Ana rub each other the wrong way, only to have passion evolve from their friction. But when a major injury sidelines one of them, will their relationship survive the fallout? Brayden ably develops the growing relationship between Ana and Natalie, making the emotional payoff that much sweeter when the two finally admit their lust for each other. Readers will relate to the realism of the romance and the emotional aftermath of serious injuries. This ably plotted, moving offering will earn its place deep in readers’ hearts.
