Ballet, glamour, romance – and tragedy. Prima Donna is an enchanting, exciting story from Karen Swan, bestselling author of The Last Summer and Christmas by Candlelight.

Breaking the rules was what she liked best. That was her sport. Renegade, rebel, bad girl. Getting away with it.

Pia Soto is the sexy and glamorous prima ballerina, the Brazilian bombshell who's shaking up the ballet world with her outrageous behaviour. She's wild and precocious, and she's a survivor. She's determined that no man will ever control her destiny. But ruthless financier Will Silk has other ideas . . .

Sophie O'Farrell is Pia's hapless, gawky assistant, the girl-next-door to Pia's Prima Donna, always either falling in love with the wrong man or just falling over. Sophie sets her own dreams aside to pick up the debris in Pia's wake, but she's no angel.

When a devastating accident threatens to cut short Pia's illustrious career, Sophie has to step out of the shadows – and face up to the demons in her own life . . .
