Commander Matt Emerson, son of a navy admiral, enrolls his five daughters in ballet classes at Kaci Connelly's dance studio in Florida. His wife has mysteriously disappeared at his last post in Viriginia, and he transferred to Florida to remove his children from the gossip and speculation about their mother. Matt is a suspect in his wife's disappearance and has no alibi.

Kaci, a former ballerina, is still in recovery for the trauma of a horrendous tragedy that ended her performing career years before meeting the Emersons. She is a devoted teacher, who becomes attached to the motherless girls while subconsciously becoming attracted to their handsome father.

When Matt exchanges his labor for extra classes for his daughters, creating close contact with Kaci, he finds himself becoming more and more attracted to the pretty dance instructor.

While all the girls are grieving for their mother, the oldest, a talented young teen, is the most disturbed and harbors a belief that her father was responsible for her mother's disappearance.

The stakes increase when the remains of Matt's wife are found on Federal parkland in North Carolina, and the FBI targets Matt.

Readers will be intrigued by Matt's plight to prove his innocence and win the love, respect, and trust of his children, and by Kaci's struggle when falling in love with a murder suspect.
