Summary
"Limousine driver Micah Donovan prides himself on his discretion. Regardless of what transpires in the back of his car every night, he keeps his eyes on the road and his heart so far away that he can no longer reach it. But something's different tonight in Las Vegas. The driver's wealthy client, Austin Savlodar, is the malicious son of an imprisoned gangster. During their journey through the neon streets, Micah overhears Savlodar forcing himself upon a woman in the back of the car. Reminding himself that it's none of his business, Micah delivers them to their destination. Savlodar phones again a few hours later, requesting another young beauty be delivered to his door. She introduces herself as Katelyn. This time, Micah is unable to turn a deaf ear, and he rescues Katelyn just before Savlodar can hurt her. Together they flee into the night, with Savlodar's enforcer pursuing them. Micah's carefully crafted life, so far free of impediment and incident, breaks apart in his hands. He has only Katelyn to keep him standing--a woman he hardly knows yet is unable to resist. The two of them have little choice but to run to stay alive. They devise a variety of plans to take their lives back, only to have each one fail and send them again into retreat. All the while, Katelyn gradually teaches Micah to waltz. Dancing becomes their talisman, keeping them together when everything disintegrates around them . . . " --
