This is another great addition to the Fool’s Gold series. This one was all about Evangeline “Evie” Stryker. Estranged from her family, never feeling like she truly belonged, she feels out of sorts when her brothers and mother bring her to Fool’s Gold to recuperate after an accident on the football field side-lines as one of the team cheerleaders. Her first thoughts are to just get better and leave as soon as possible. Then she finds herself settling in as a dance instructor for Charlie’s mother, Dominique’s, business. Then she finds a note from the woman in charge of the dance studio, that she’s run off with her beau. Now the Dance of the Winter King annual production falls into Evie’s lap. Overwhelmed and stressed out, she doesn’t know she’s going to do it but she vows she will not let her students down.
Dante Jefferson, Rafe Stryker’s friend and business partner, finds himself grumbling about moving the business to the “backwater” town of Fool’s Gold from San Fransico. What makes it even worse is that Rafe rented space in a building downtown beneath a dance studio. Dante is on an important overseas call to Asia when the clog dancing class is in session. Having had enough of disruptions and unable to hold a phone conversation due to the noise, he decides to head upstairs and request the dance instructor to keep it down a little. Imagine his surprise when he walks into the studio and Evie is there. He feels an immediate attraction to the dancer when he spies her in her black leotard and tights. Evie is off limits for a number of reasons, first off because she’s his business partner’s sister and because he never gets emotionally involved. In his way of thinking “anyone who taught little kids to dance had to be softhearted. Nothing got him running faster than a hint of emotion.”
What starts out as a way for the two of them to make it through the upcoming holiday season as sanely as possible, blossoms into a wonderful friendship. Will their pasts and fears keep them from exploring their feelings for one another and send them running scared, or will the magic of the season and Fool’s Gold weave a happy ending for either one of them?
