An emotional new novel from six-time USA Today bestselling author Deanna Roy
For four years, I’ve lived in almost total seclusion. Homeschooled, forbidden from social media, seeing no one other than the dancers at Dreamcatcher Academy, where I teach ballet to little girls in wheelchairs.
Then Blitz arrives.
He’s the disgraced host of Dance Blitz, a bawdy reality show where Blitz sleeps with as many dancers as possible while looking for his perfect partner.
At least he was. A few weeks ago, he got kicked off his own show.
He’s at my academy for a publicity stunt, and my wheelchair ballerinas are his ticket back into the public’s good graces.
I intend to hate him and stay as far away as possible. But when he looks at me, I can’t resist. Before I realize what’s happened, we’re sneaking into back rooms, dancing, kissing, planning dates away from the cameras and the wrath of my family.
But I’m afraid. I have a secret at the academy, a small, wonderful, terrible secret, and if I stay with Blitz, the world will find out.
Forbidden Dance is a full-length standalone HEA, although fans who fall in love with Blitz and Livia can continue the series to follow more of their love story.
But now it’s out.
My brief brush with fame caught the attention of a boy I once loved. He was ripped from my life at a tender age by my father, who moved us and hid me away so that we could not meet again.
Only after he was gone did I learn I was pregnant with his child.
He’s spent years trying to find me.
And now he’s at Dreamcatcher Dance Academy.
He’s going to find our baby, he says. The adoption wasn’t legal since he didn’t know.
He has no idea how close our little girl really is. That I secretly teach her ballet.
He can’t know how important it is that I keep the secret.
But when your boyfriend is Blitz Craven, the reality TV dance show star, the press follows you everywhere.
And no matter how much Blitz wants to protect me from my old love, from the threat he poses to our happy life, there’s one fact I have to face.
My past has caught up with me.

Despite being a painfully shy and sheltered ballet student, three months ago I charged onto one of the most popular TV reality shows in the world and changed the course of five lives.

-- And three girls who were the finalists on the show.
Those girls are back to get their vengeance, and as usual, the producers of the show are in it for the ratings.
So now I have a choice: let each of them have another shot at my lover.
Or take them on myself.
But Blitz is mine.
