Death Dancer

(Dangerous Dancers 02)
by

Tara Lain

A tattooed dancer and a by-the-book detective dance with death in the ego-fueled halls of ballet.

Bad boy of ballet Valentin ‘Val’ Aalto stands poised on the verge of huge success—except for one big obstacle. Influential lead dancer Harry Hardesty hates Val and cheats him out of the lead in Romeo and Juliet.

When Hardesty winds up dead, Val looks like a prime suspect—and gets thrown under the detailed and methodical inspection of the handsome NY detective with the stick up his butt, Andrew Preston. At first, Preston believes Hardesty may be the victim of the chilling Dancer Killer who’s struck three victims, but evidence stacks up against Val.

Still, Andrew can’t seem to keep his hands off his suspect and when the Dancer Killer starts stalking Val, Andrew is forced to choose between his dedication to a job he loves and his growing passion for his beautiful dancer. Together Val and Andrew discover that chaos can be beautiful, one should choose desserts wisely, and love can even trump death in the rehearsal halls of ballet.

Reader Advisory: This book contains descriptions of murder scenes, brief allusions to past child abuse and a scene of violence.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: I have not had a chance to read any of this author’s works, and I can tell you that after reading this story, I am definitely going to be looking him up.  Sometimes when you are dealing with Christmas it gets a bit down.  The stories are pretty much the same, even if the words are different.  This author has written a story that fulfils many Christmas dreams.  It shows what Christmas is really about.  

Laurence lost his family when he was a child and got mixed up with a guy that was horrible to say the least.  He lost his spirit along the way and made sure everyone knew it.  He has one friend who stays by his side.  However this Christmas he has been put into a position he absolutely hates.  He is to help with the Christmas Charity committee.  His partner is a surprise though; it would seem Nick loves everything about the holidays.  Let’s just say, Laurence is going to get the best gift ever.  For you to find out what happens… pick up the book.

I have always worked Christmas and when my children were kids, I would go all out getting them everything they wanted and then some.  However to me, it was just another day and it seems to just stick like that.  With the kids all gone, it is just me so I always think work might just fill up the day.  Now I do like to listen to the Christmas songs, I don’t really do anything more.  After reading this story though, I realize that there are more things out there that can be done.  It is the season to be giving, instead of receiving and that makes this story just perfect to me. 

I would definitely recommend you read this book, because it will bring a twinkle to your eye if not a tear.  Have a great Christmas and trust me this is the book for you.

Sometimes you fly. Sometimes you fall.

A dream at Olympic gold in ski jumping. It’s a dream that’s been the exclusive property of male Olympic athletes.

Until now.

For seventeen-year-old Ellie Engebretsen, the 2011 decision to include women’s ski jumping in the Olympics is a game changer. She’d love to bring home the gold for her father, a former Olympic hopeful whose dreams were blown along with his knees on an ill-timed landing. But can she defy the pull of gravity that draws her to Kate Moreau, her biggest competition and the girl of her dreams?

How can Ellie soar through the air when all she feels like doing is falling hard?

One frigid winter night a week before Christmas, college student Will stumbles into a church during choir practice, bruised by his own father’s hands. He’s out of the closet now—there’s no going back since his fundamentalist father learned the truth—but he’s also out of a home, a family, and a future. Will has nowhere to turn. No one to care.

Except . . . Will’s roommate, Quinn, cares. Maybe too much. He’s been attracted to Will since they moved in together, but never dreamed his crush was gay. With Will’s life in pieces, Quinn doesn’t want to push. He also knows he has more experience than Will, who’s never even been kissed.

Then Will’s father makes a reappearance, and Will has to learn to trust his heart more than the voices of his past. But it’s the season of miracles, faith, and hope, and Quinn is determined to teach Will how to love and be loved.

David James is smart, successful, handsome… and alone. After the death of his lover, Kyle, from cancer, he buried himself in his law practice and the gym. At forty-eight, he is haunted by his memories and walled off from the world. When David injures himself working out, he’s assigned to Brandon Smith for physical therapy. The vibrant young therapist is attracted to David and realizes he needs a hand to get back into dating. What begins as a practice coffee date escalates to friendship, passion, and maybe something more, as they navigate a new relationship in Washington, DC, and the gay mecca of Provincetown.

But David remains trapped behind the barrier of fear and guilt. Will he remain loyal to Kyle’s memory if he moves on? Can he and Brandon manage a twenty-two-year age gap? Brandon thinks he understands David’s concerns, and for him, the answer to those questions is yes. He wants to be with David, and he believes he can overcome David’s barriers. But Brandon fails to account for the world’s reaction to a handsome young man attached to an older, wealthy lover. David’s memories, Brandon’s pride, and an unexpected tragedy might cost them something very special.
