"What do you want, Marco?"
His expression darkened and he strode towards me. My back was pressed against the wall behind me and I looked away from him, trying to create space. His hand gripped my chin forcing me to look at him and my heartbeat spiked at the intensity in his dark eyes.
"There are so many things that I want, Ava." I swallowed as his free hand created a trail of heat down my arm. "But for right now, I only want you safe."
And with that, he pulled away from me and left the room, leaving me breathless.

For as long as she can remember, Ava Washington has had one dream in mind: to be a professional dancer. This goal would be hard for anyone to achieve, but being a self-reliant, twenty-two year old in Manhattan, Ava has even more of a struggle.
Saving up every penny that she can and still finding time to practice her technique, Ava finds her dream almost within reach. That is, until one unexpected factor gets into the mix.
Marcello Valencia is a man of mystery and grace. He gives off an aura of danger that Ava is desperate to avoid, not willing to jeopardize all of her hard work. However, Marcello brings with him a background that Ava could never have expected, causing an outbreak of trouble at every turn.
With her options running out, Ava is forced to alter her life around in order to stay alive while Marcello's guarded heart is changed by a vulnerability he's never before experienced. Limits are tested and they struggle to find out if this new life is worth the fight.
