He never wanted to be a hero…until she needed him to be.
It took Kennedy Moore years to put her life back together after Reese Spencer shattered it. But she did. Now, years later, strong and independent, she is in pursuit of a single dream—to dance with the Altman American Dance Theater. Unfortunately, Kennedy is learning that a girl from nowhere with no money and no contacts might never be able to reach her goal.
That is, until Reese reappears, offering a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that Kennedy just can’t refuse. In exchange for working on his yacht for a few short weeks, he’ll get her an audition with the famous dance troupe. All Kennedy has to do is keep her head down, work hard and resist Reese. That sounds easy enough, right?
Reese doesn’t want to make it easy for Kennedy. Seeing her again has started a fire in his blood—an unwelcome one. It took him years to forget about her before, so this time he has a plan. It’s simple: Get Kennedy on his yacht, seduce her, get her out of his system, move on with his life. That sounds easy enough, right?
But the one thing Reese didn’t plan for was Kennedy herself—a girl so strong yet so broken, she makes him want to rescue her, to take care of her. To save her. Even if he has to save her from himself.

Character Interview: Reese Spencer from All the Pretty Poses
Relationships are new territory for you. What do you like the most about being in a relationship?
I feel closer to Kennedy than I do anyone else in my life. Than I ever have. I think I got a taste of that one summer fourteen years ago, but I didn’t realize how important it was, how much I needed it. But now, now that I’ve had it, I can’t ever imagine my life without her in it.
I start my day with her. We talk about how we slept, what we dreamed of, what kind of plans we have for the day. It sounds simple enough, but when you don’t have someone to share those small things with, life is just…empty.
I end my day with her, too. We talk about our worries and our hopes, we make plans for the next day or the weekend. Or the next ten years. Sometimes we sit on the couch, in the quiet, only our hands touching, and I feel more relaxed and happy than I’ve ever felt in my life. She brings peace to my soul.
Kennedy…what are your first thoughts when I say her name?
Love. Grace. Forgiveness. Mine.
How did you feel after the first time you saw Kennedy dance in your club?
*hisses through teeth* Turned on, of course, but even now I can remember being just…furious that other men were watching her. Even then, I think I felt like she was mine and I never wanted her to be anybody else’s. I’ll share anything I have, all that I own, but not Kennedy. Never her. She’s the person that matters most to me, the one I’m most afraid of losing.
What is one thing you would do differently if you could?
I would never have left all those years ago. I would’ve found a way to take Kennedy away and keep her safe and happy every day of those fourteen years. They were wasted. I hate to even think back on my time away from her.
What are you the most afraid of?
Losing her. Always of losing her. When I have nightmares, that’s what they’re about. It’s the only thing that truly scares me.
If you could have one wish come true, what would it be?
That I could take away all the hurt she suffered for the first half of her life. I mean, I’ll make damn sure the rest of her life is better than she could ever have imagined, but there’s nothing I can do about the past. If I could change one thing, have one wish, that’s what I’d wish for. To take away all her pain.
What is something about you we might be surprised to know?
I had insomnia until the first time that I stayed the night with Kennedy in the stateroom beside mine. Since then, except for the restless nights I spent while we were apart, I haven’t suffered from it once. Not once.
What do you love the most about Kennedy?
That she loves me. I could name off enough things that I love about her to fill a book, but that’s the first that comes to mind. I would give up everything I have, everything I am before I would ever risk doing something to make her stop loving me. I couldn’t live with that, I couldn’t live without her love. I think it would destroy something integral to life inside me. It’s what I want most out of every day—to love her and be loved by her–and she gives it to me. Like a gift.

New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author, M. Leighton, is a native of Ohio. She relocated to the warmer climates of the South, where she can be near the water all summer and miss the snow all winter. Possessed of an overactive imagination from early in her childhood, Michelle finally found an acceptable outlet for her fantastical visions: literary fiction. Having written over a dozen novels, these days Michelle enjoys letting her mind wander to more romantic settings with sexy Southern guys, much like the one she married and the ones you’ll find in her latest books. When her thoughts aren’t roaming in that direction, she’ll be riding wild horses, skiing the slopes of Aspen or scuba diving with a hot rock star, all without leaving the cozy comfort of her office.
About Michelle: I love coffee and chocolate, even more so when they are combined. I’m convinced that one day they could be the basis for world peace. I also love the color red and am seriously considering dying my hair.
