Death Dancer
(Dangerous Dancers #2)
By Tara Lain


A tattooed dancer and a by-the-book detective dance with death in the ego-fueled halls of ballet.

Bad boy of ballet, Valentin “Val” Aalto stands poised on the verge of huge success -- except for one big obstacle. Influential lead dancer Harry Hardesty hates Val and cheats him out of the lead in Romeo and Juliet. When Hardesty winds up dead, Val looks like a prime suspect – and gets thrown under the detailed and methodical inspection of the handsome NY detective with the stick up his butt, Andrew Preston. At first, Preston believes Hardesty may be the victim of the chilling Dancer Killer who’s struck three victims, but evidence stacks up against Val. Still, Andrew can’t seem to keep his hands off his suspect and when the Dancer Killer starts stalking Val, Andrew is forced to choose between his dedication to a job he loves – and his growing passion for his beautiful dancer. Together Val and Andrew discover that chaos can be beautiful, one should choose desserts wisely, and love can even trump death in the rehearsal halls of ballet.

Val dragged in a breath. Am I nervous? Oddly, yes. I guess I don’t get questioned by the police every day. He chuckled. And if I believe that excuse, I’ll get an award for self-deception. Do cops ever fuck their consultants? He crossed the sidewalk and stepped into the restaurant. Whoa. Good smells. Rich and spicy without being overwhelming. 

He glanced around the small space. The tables were fairly close and mostly full of people, but not packed European-style. Preston had snagged a corner table in the back. For a second, Val got to stare at Preston without him being aware. He was nervously scrolling through his phone, not seeming to pay much attention to anything on the screen. His foot bounced in its polished loafer. Loafers on a cop? He’d taken off his tie, but that appeared to be his one concession to informality. Definite stick up that ass. Wonder why I’m so interested in putting something else up there? Cheekbones for miles. I like that. And so many colors in that hair—from earth to fire.

Like a deer scenting the wind for predators, Preston raised his head and his eyes met Val’s. Those eyes widened and his lips parted ever so slightly. Then he kind of shook himself, plastered on a semi-smile and stood.

Val walked toward him, just enough sway in the hips to make it seem incidental. Extending his hand, he returned the smile. “Detective.”

Preston took his hand. “Uh, you can try Preston or, uh, Andrew.”

“Umm. Can I call you Andy?”

One eyebrow rose as he shook hands. “Not if you expect an answer.”
That was what Val liked. That streak of snark hidden behind the ramrod posture.
