Vincent Anthony Kimball sat watching the ballet, the young ladies of the ton falling at his feet, and tried to ignore the aching feeling inside him. Though it had been nearly ten years since his first and only love, Chantal, had disappeared from his life memories of her sweet face, of the passion they'd shared, still haunted him. Then, suddenly, he saw her at center stage, and was engulfed by waves of need and longing. But was she really his long-lost Chantal, or the prima ballerina papillone? she claimed not to know him, but the way her slim body responded to his kiss told him otherwise. And Vince knew that, like the brave tin soldier of the fairy tale, he would do anything to return his true love to him, give anything to unite their hearts as one.
