A slow sashay to desire.
After being abandoned by his fiancée and his fans because of a disfiguring accident, former classical pianist Reed O'Donnell returns home to hide. He's pieced his life back together becoming a landlord and remodel construction specialist, but shies away from a social life.
Ex-ballerina Quinn Petrov moved to Castle Ridge and invested her money to start a dance studio with plans to put down roots. She wants to get involved in the community to promote her business and make real friends, not the acquaintances she'd made in New York. When she meets her secretive and sexy landlord, she's intrigued but he always seems to be hiding behind a mask.
Reed can't stop the attraction he feels toward his new tenant, but she's beautiful and outgoing, while he is not. When his younger brother begs him to help impress Quinn, Reed can't say no. Using the musical language of love, he woos Quinn for his brother, but when his own mask slips will he reveal his secrets?
In this modern take of Cyrano de Bergerac meets Beauty and the Beast, Quinn and Reed dance their way into each other's hearts.
