Sage dreams of becoming a professional dancer. During one of her lessons, she feels a burning gaze on her—the powerful, silver-gray gaze of a man named Xandro. He says he’s looking for her younger brother, but she can’t imagine what sort of business they have with each other. As she tries to focus on her lesson, she is distracted by Xandro’s intimidating presence. Then, while Sage is celebrating passing her big audition, Xandro reveals himself to be a hotel magnate. He takes Sage hostage to flush out her brother…and reveals that’s precisely why he sponsored her audition!
