From Wynter S.K. comes a New Adult Romance duology with the heart of a boxer and the tenacity of a dancer.
Pas de Deux: Cross and Pointe Part One
A gifted dancer with a traumatic past… Sammi Carnevale relocates with her family in hopes of putting a nightmare behind her. Although the change of scenery helps rekindle her lifelong passion for ballet, she still feels broken. Until, disguised as a man and flying under the radar, she begins working out at the local legendary boxing club, Ronan’s Gym, and starts to reclaim her power. But when a confrontation with some disrespectful clientele reveals her true identity, she can’t hide anymore—especially not from co-owner and hometown war hero Cillian Ronan, to whom she is instantly attracted and terrified of. How can she let him get closer to her without revealing her dark secret? Time is running out… After the suicide of a close Army buddy and dealing with the corrupt businessman that holds half his father’s gym, Cillian Ronan is out of options to support his younger sister, a struggling single mother, until an invitation to compete in a MMA tournament with a huge prize on the line is extended. But when he realizes that the skinny, quiet kid from his gym is really a beautiful young woman in disguise, he puts his own problems aside to focus on her. She’s an enigma to him, one that he desperately wants to figure out, but instead of letting him in, she holds him at arm’s length. Until one night, when the truth finally comes out. Sammi finds freedom in her journey to heal, gradually opening up to Cillian more and more. But will she ever be able to fully trust him? Or will her fear of being hurt again keep her away from him?
Pas de Deux: Cross and Pointe Part Two
Mending hearts and building dreams…
It’s easy for Sammi Carnevale to talk herself out of having real feelings for Cillian Ronan, but with one simple, sweet gesture, he wins not only her heart, but her trust, too. She can’t deny her feelings for him, and certainly not her desire. And with every step they make together, Sammi’s wounds begin to mend. And now, with true happiness in her life, she decides to tackle her dreams of dancing again head-on.
But trust is so easily broken…
Cillian is ready to prove to Sammi that he can be everything she’s ever needed and wanted in a man. In return, she makes him feel like he can do anything, like winning the MMA tournament, taking back his father’s business, and even forgiving himself for the guilt he carries over his friend’s suicide. Inviting her for a weekend away with him at the tournament is a turning point for them both—until Sammi’s past catches up with her in the most unexpected and terrible way.
When she flees, she takes with her everything Cillian’s worked so hard for—the motivation to win the tournament, and to get his father’s gym back. His heart goes with her, too, ripped out of his chest with her departure. Can Cillian convince himself he’s worthy and deserving of Sammi? Will Sammi embrace the love she never thought she’d have, or will she succumb to the pain of her nightmare and push Cillian away for good?
