‘Melanie Hamrick’s debut novel treads similar obsessional ground to the film Black Swan in its steamy imaginings of backstage shenanigans at a ballet company’
The Times Book of the Month June 2023
‘Compelling… absolutely fascinating’
‘[An] erotic novel that pulses with Black Swan energy… combining the artistry of The Red Shoes with the eroticism of Fifty Shades of Grey.’
Dance was her obsession.
Desire was her undoing.
As a young dancer, Sylvie Carter has a list of rules for making it big in the ballet world. Avoid drama. Don’t do drugs. Skip dessert. And of course, never sleep with another dancer. Ballet is a cutthroat profession, and she can’t afford a scandal.
But when she meets renowned Italian dancer Alessandro Russo, an electrifying encounter has her throwing out the rulebook. And as he tempts her into the darkness she swore she’d left behind, she wonders if this relationship will be the making of her… or if it will cost her everything.
