2017 Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: Death Dancer (Dangerous Dancers #2) Tara Lain

1) Very natural writing, effortless, flows well. Interesting characters with complementary natures. Complex plot that draws you in. Dialogue-heavy, yes, but that’s my preference. ... Weird sex scenes. The first one really threw me. Didn’t seem to fit the rest of the story, the level of flirtation, the men’s characters. It became more understandable toward the end but still not quite sure. Regardless, a strong thriller and a good romance.

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.
