On a dare from a friend, down-on-his-luck artist Chance Savage enrolls in a ballroom dance class. There, he meets elegant and sophisticated Avery Glenn, whom he watches with fascination. Everything that he is not intrigues him about her. Her innocence softens him, her music enchants him, her certainty brings solidarity into his life and he finds himself falling for her.
As his priorities change, he must choose between a lifestyle that continually challenges him, and a woman he has grown to love. But an old secret still shackles him, and a woman from his past emerges, threatening his new life. [from author's web site]
