"Only love could bring understanding. One moment Lauri had been a ballet student living peacefully with her aunt in Downhollow--the next, a tall, dark maitre de ballet strode into her life. Carried off by Maxim di Corte to his Venetian palace, she became like a slave to the dance. But with Maxim, Lauri also began to understand the love behind true balletie expression. There was no doubt Maxim would make Lauri submit to him as a dancer. Would she do the same as woman?"
