A stranger in the wings, a traitorous pair of toe shoes, and a traumatic turn dancing with The Great Rubio...For ballerina Ashleigh Keaton, it's been one hell of a night.
But it's not over yet. When Rubio drags her to a private party at his friend's house in the ritzy part of London, she meets Liam Wilder, a lifestyle dominant and frighteningly seductive man. Liam pursues Ashleigh, attracted by her strength and talent, but she has secrets - an abusive past and a crippling fear of intimacy that prevents her from connecting to anyone, especially a playboy reputed to be legendary in bed.
Eventually he wins her trust and sets out to heal the troubled dancer, awakening her to a world of sensual abandon in a series of BDSM "sessions" at his home. But how pure are his motives? Is he helping her or endangering her fragile soul? Liam hides his own destructive secrets, and so does Fernando Rubio, their temperamental friend. Over time the three become embroiled in a tangle of artifice, fears, and lies that threaten to undo everything they've worked for.
Will Ashleigh and Liam find the strength to defeat their demons? Or are they cursed to sleepwalk through life forever, afraid to experience the passion and intimacy of love?

I LOVED THIS BOOK!!!
While this book deals with highly sensitive issues in the lead characters backgrounds, the way they come together in such loving care for each other and hopes of healing each other is so very inspirational, it makes my heart swell. Liam and 'little ishi' are so pure of heart in the way they go about exploring their needs and paths to healing, it is just a lovely book. THANK YOU to an incredible author, Annabel Joseph. I cannot wait to read the next BDSM Ballet novel.
I was also very impressed with the narration by Erma Kent, she does an excellent job with this book.
