Forbidden Dance Deanna Roy (Lover’s Dance, #1) Publication date: March 28th 2017 Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance She was hidden from the world. Then he arrived. An emotional new novel from six-time USA Today bestselling author Deanna Roy For four years, I’ve lived in almost total seclusion. Homeschooled, forbidden from social media, seeing no one other than the dancers at Dreamcatcher Academy, where I teach ballet to little girls in wheelchairs. Then Blitz arrives.

The Sand family Wicca gene somehow leapfrogged over her. But she did get one highly specific magical talent: she can see true love. As a matchmaker, Amber's pretty far down the sorcery food chain (even birthday party magicians rank higher), but after five seconds of eye contact, she can envision anyone's soul mate. Amber works at her mother's magic shop--Windy City Magic--in downtown Chicago, and she's confident she's seen every kind of happy ending there is: except for one--her own. (The Fates are tricky jerks that way.)

Because while she can't see her own match, she can see his
