Vanessa knew that dance was in her blood, but she had no idea the world of elite ballet was center stage for the darkest of secrets - until her sister mysteriously disappeared from the world-renowned New York Ballet Academy. Three years later, Vanessa follows in Margaret's footsteps, lands the role most girls at NYBA would kill for...and gets trapped in a sinister spiral of secrets. Back-stabbing bunheads, a fiercely unrelenting choreographer, and the sexy male lead of the troupe - they all want something from Vanessa. And though she revels in the attention, what Vanessa truly craves are answers.
All dancers dream of the chance to try out for the Royal Court Ballet Company. Only two dancers from the elite New York Ballet Academy will have this honor. Vanessa is one of them. She dances with grace and elegance and a fury that is unmatched. Justin - strong, sexy, and caring - will be her partner. But the thrill of travelling to London for this once-in-a-lifetime competition is shrouded by their past and the demands of an ancient organization.
