The day she turned 18, Tilly escaped the arranged marriage set by her father, stole his car and a bit of money, and sped away to make it on her own as a dancer – one of those kind of dancers.
But Colt, club owner, isn’t having it. Until now, he was happy to let any girl who walked through those doors step on stage and make him money. But Tilly has changed that. In fact, Tilly has changed everything, from his outlook on women, to his outlook on life altogether.
Colt forbids her to dance, but knows he also can’t send her back out into that cold world on her own. He wants Tilly for himself, which means he has to do something he swore he would never do: let a woman back into his life again.
