In the theater, ballerina Gabrielle Valera moves across the stage like a beautiful butterfly in a spring garden—weightless and graceful with flawless technique and exquisite artistry. However, even those closest to her have no idea of the dark secret she harbors—or why she carries a semi-automatic handgun.
When Gabi encounters handsome Derek Conner, a wealthy ER physician, sparks fly. While neither believes a romantic relationship is in the master plan, the power of attraction jeopardizes the personal agenda of each.
Derek discovers feelings for the dancer he never believed existed. To Gabi’s dismay, desire like she’s never known is awakened, yet she cannot commit to Derek, nor explain why.
Although confused, and at moments hurt, by Gabi’s behavior, Derek is determined to uncover the cause of her erratic and puzzling actions and free her of the demons.
Gabi is equally determined to preserve the secret condemning her to an invisible prison.
