This was really a perfect little book. I thought the author did a good job of making the characters seem real and the romance didn't seem rushed despite the fact that it took place over the course of a week tops. I liked the reality TV premise as reality television is a guilty pleasure of mine, I will not lie. I've always been interested in ballerinas, but I don't know much about the art, so I can't say if it was a valid interpretation of it.

I'm giving it five stars, it was very satisfying and

Good book. I really enjoyed seeing Allegra on the island learning survival techniques. She was so lost at first, but once she made up her mind to do things, she rocked. She really wanted a chance to be away from her ballet world to decide if that's what she wanted to do. Finn loved what he did, but it was obvious that he used his work to run away also. But he was very good at helping Allegra reach her potential on the island. I really enjoyed the coconut tree episode, and her last night on the i ...more

Allegra has been training to be a ballerina like her famous mother since she was 10 years old. She was one of the youngest prima ballerina’s ever, and her critics have been waiting to see her fail ever since. Thinking her talent is only short term. And now, with her performance in the new ballet about the Little Mermaid, they say she is technically perfect but her dancing is soulless. Allegra doesn’t know what to do anymore. Is she only dancing because her father wants her to fill her mother’s f ...more

I haven't read a Harlequin romance in years and wasn't expecting too much, but this was a very nice surprise. This book is part of a fairy tale series and supposedly follows the story of The Little Mermaid. But either I don't remember the story, or it was quite a stretch, because I didn't really feel a connection. But the book was quite nice anyway. The main characters had some personality and interactions that kept me interested. Allegra Martin is the runaway ballerina who is tired of being hem ...more

I wish I could give this book 4.5 stars. On a 100 point scale I would give it a 90/100.

I hadn't read a Harlequin Romance in quite a while -- romantic suspense is usually more my thing, but I really liked this one. The cover is a bit deceiving because it really is NOT about the life of a ballerina. Instead it is more about a woman's journey to discover who she really is and what she wants for herself.

I enjoyed the "survivor" vibe of the book; juxtaposing a ballerina with the wilderness was a grea

Divina, esta historia me ... mi Dios, es tan hermosa, tan sutil, romántica, tan perfecta, sin tanto drama, sin alejarse de lo que es un Harlequin Romántico, es puro romance, soñare con bailarines y aventureros, fue tan lindo.

Decent, but I don't think people fall in lasting, married-for-sixty-plus-years love in a week.
