In the City of Light, one dancer must confront her fears about love and loss before she can step into a brighter future . . .
Lily Johannson has returned to Paris, the city that broke her heart and destroyed her ballet career, with two goals in mind: to overcome the grief surrounding her fiancé’s death, and to make amends with her estranged sister, Natalie, also a ballerina. But when Lily meets charming composer Yves Rousseau, he is convinced she has a third mission—as his muse . . .

Struggling to finish a score about an infamous Ballets Russes dancer from 1917, Yves believes Lily is meant to help him. Despite her resistance, she is swept once more into the exhilarating arms of the dance—and into Yves’ passionate embrace. But when her sister is cast as the infamous dancer and begins to imitate her tragic life, she soon goes missing. Now Lily and Yves must set out to find her—and along the way face their own demons, while also discovering that art, like love, should not be abandoned so easily . . .

Addison has had her future mapped out since she was a little girl – pre-law degree from the University of Nebraska, getting into a top notch law school, followed by a career as a no-nonsense lawyer.  She knows that a husband will come at some point, but she hasn’t figured that part out yet.  One thing is certain, it’s not Bryce Portwood, the annoying class clown in her English class.

Bryce has never taken anything too serious.  Life’s too short to get all worked up and never have fun.  The moment Addison Webster opened her mouth, he knew she needed to let her hair down, and he wanted to be the one to help her.  Getting Addison to hang out was easy. Getting her to lighten up and trust him, not so much.

Bryce has a plan.  If he can get her to let go and have fun, maybe she’ll see he’s not so bad.  If Bryce can just play it cool, maybe he can prove to her that he can fit into those well-laid plans after all.

“So, Bryce, no last name.  What’s your major?”
“I’ve never heard of that?  What’s it good for?”
“No, my last name is Portwood.  I don’t have a major.”

The blush bloomed in her cheeks again.  “Oh, do you have any idea what you want to do?”
“Probably something in computers, Professor Umbridge.”
Addison’s eyes popped open, and she tried to say something and then closed her mouth.  Finally, she said, “I don’t know why you’d say that, but whatever.”
“Don’t get so worked up.  It’s just that I’m pretty sure after spending what little time we have together that you don’t really know how to have fun.  That’s no one’s fault.  You’ve just never learned.”

“And I suppose you think you can teach me?”
“Well, I am pretty decent at causing trouble.”
“Why am I not surprised?”
“It’s a gift.  A gift I’ve been blessed with.”
“What makes you think I can’t get into trouble?  I’ve gotten into plenty of trouble.”
“Oh yeah,” he said raising an eyebrow.  “Like what?  Blow me away.”
“Well, I…I…” she trailed off.

“It’s okay,” he told her as he patted her shoulder.  “We can’t all be awesome.”
“I can do stuff too.”
“Oh, please, don’t do it on my account,” he said, but secretly he was hoping she would.  He would love to see little Addison bust loose.
“I’ll prove it to you, make you a bet.  When I win, you can’t make fun of me anymore, and you’ll owe me something.  I don’t know yet what it’d be, but I’ll think about it and come up with my terms before we start.”

“And when I win?” he asked.
“I don’t care what it is because you aren’t winning.”
Challenge accepted.

I’ve fallen in love twice in my life.

The first time, I was nineteen. Naïve. Passionate. Willing to believe fairy tales existed.

The choices I made for love back then ruined my ballet career, destroyed my dreams, and left my heart shattered. I survived by closing myself off to any possibility of repeating the same mistakes.

This time, I’m forty-nine. Older. Wiser. Unwilling to give up my independence and risk losing myself again.

But this city girl has never danced with a cowboy before, and his rugged good looks and gentle charm are threatening to tumble the walls I’ve built around my fragile heart.

The past has a way of coming back around, though, and sometimes we can’t escape the mistakes we’ve made.

This standalone novel in the Tales Behind the Veils series is a roller coaster ride of emotions with parallel love stories that prove love is a risk no matter what age you are.

Dax chose a table against the wall and held out a chair for me as I removed my coat and positioned it across the back of the chair so the sleeve could dry.
He handed me a laminated menu card from the bucket on the wall, but I noticed he didn’t take one for himself.

“What do you recommend?” I asked.
“A little bit of everything. You won’t know what you like until you try it.”
I handed him back the menu. “Then surprise me.”
His eyebrows raised a bit, but his smile grew wider. “Okay. I like it. How adventurous are you?”
“I’m here, aren’t I?”

He chuckled. “Any allergies? Major dislikes?” I shook my head and he continued. “You want a drink? They have cucumber water.”
The thought of him sipping cucumber water was too much for me, and my laughter bubbled up and out of me before I could contain it.

“What? What’s funny about cucumber water?” he asked.
“Nothing,” I replied, clearing my throat and trying not to laugh again. “I’m sure it’s wonderful. Let’s have cucumber water.”
“It’s good for you.”

My laughter bubbled up and out again. “I’m sure it is. I would love to have some. I’m looking forward to it. I never knew cowboys drank cucumber water.”
“Oh,” he said with a smirk. “I reckon cowboys drink whatever they want to. I thought you didn’t know many cowboys.”
“I don’t.”

He leaned forward and grinned. “Then how do you know what cowboys drink?”
I laughed again, surprisingly relaxed and at ease with our banter.
“I don’t. Obviously.”

When Atlantis fell into the sea, a single creature survived--a scarlet phoenix. She escaped with ancient man’s historical record, The Great Book of Forgetting.

Rhea is the scarlet phoenix, transmuted into human form with wings of fire. She hides The Great Book from those seeking to steal it and prevent the prophecy. The Archangel befriends and protects her as he watches her traverse time and mold history. She is the proverbial rose that blooms in a future garden.

Jean-Louis Riviere is an aristocrat who became a vampire during the American Revolution. He is haunted by an ill wind whispering strange and incredible possibilities. His family ties will lure those who wish to destroy the prophecy; however, the Archangel also knows his blood is all that will save the rose and secure the future.

Drahomira is a gypsy, a bastard princess, and a vampire. The Archangel of Death chose her to protect the phoenix because she is an irreverent killer but loyal to family.
