Widowed doctor Carson Langley doesn’t know what surprises him more; that his reticent six year old daughter is the star of her dance recital, that she wants a mommy for Christmas, or that the attractive dance teacher seems to have gotten through to his girl. Too bad teaching is a temporary gig for the ambitious dancer. Even if he were willing to risk his heart, he has to protect his daughter, Eloise from even more heartbreak.
Free-spirited dancer Penelope Glazier doesn’t believe the stories she’s heard about Eloise. All she sees is a creative girl who needs some direction and she’s the perfect person to provide some as she recuperates from an injury. After spending time with Eloise and her by-the-book father, she can’t deny their connection.
When Penelope lands a plum part, will she dance out of Carson and Eloise’s life forever? Or will she tackle on her riskiest role yet?

I was inspired by a personal career shift, paintings at the Art Institute of Chicago, and an epic temper tantrum I witnessed at a Christmas display.
