On the smooth, silvery surface of the ice skating rink, Dany Alexander cuts a figure of strength and fire, beauty and grace. One man alone is responsible for Dany's success: Anthony Malik, a former skating star who has managed her career for the past sixteen years. And for all that time, deep within his fortress of money, sex, and power, Anthony has found his attraction for Dany growing more intense. Now he wants Dany-not as a prodigy, but as a lover. The depth of his desire for her can't be denied. But what about Dany's own need to get to know her mentor as the man he really is? With the Olympics weeks away, an extraordinary contest of wills has begun. It could culminate in a crushing fall, or the greatest prize of all.
