To My Own Desire
By Amy Myers
The unicorn is not merely a legend . . .
As Tara Maitland watches a young man dancing in the streets of Paris, a mysterious quality he possesses evokes forgotten memories. She is intrigued by the dancer, Josh Santine, and his talk of The Unicorn, a ballet written by his great-grandfather for the love of his life. But the lady never danced it all those years ago and, turning her back on their passion, married another man. So the ballet languished forgotten – until now.
Tara’s fiancé, William, has his feet firmly on the ground and knows where his life – and Tara’s – is going. But Josh believes that he and Tara are fated to be together. It is only when Tara agrees to help Josh research the legend of The Unicorn that she discovers it was for her own great-grandmother that the ballet was written. History is in danger of repeating itself. Should Tara stay with safe, dependable William? Or should she risk everything to follow her heart, and gamble everything for the chance of a love that lasts for all time?
