Arianna Radburn vive a Londra e balla in una prestigiosa compagnia di danza, ma quando di notte varca la soglia dell'Icing on the Cake la sua vita cambia completamente, e Arianna si trasforma nella conturbante e bellissima Sweet Thunder, il cui corpo perfetto ammalia e seduce gli uomini di tutto il locale. Tutti tranne uno: Nicholas Morgan, il suo coreografo. Uomo affascinante e sicuro di sé, Nicholas le proporrà di cominciare a esibirsi solo per lui, privatamente, in cambio di un lauto compenso. Così Arianna, uscita dalle prove del promettente spettacolo che sta preparando, si recherà a casa di Nicholas e lo sedurrà coi suoi passi sexy notte dopo notte. Nessun pericolo finché il coreografo manterrà fede alla sua regola ferrea: mai andare a letto con una sua ballerina. Ma quando dovrà fare i conti con il fatto che Sweet Thunder e Arianna sono la stessa persona, la passione esploderà, cominciando ad assumere forme inaspettate. Assolo è un'edizione rivista e aggiornata del romanzo Ballando con il fuoco, già uscito per Harlequin Mondadori nel 2014, e inaugura per Emma Books la serie inedita Sulle punte.
Dopo un addio al nubilato con finale a sorpresa, Arianna Radburn si prepara a coronare il suo sogno d’amore con l’affascinante coreografo Nicholas Morgan. O almeno ci prova. Qualcosa, infatti, non va per il verso giusto e Arianna si ritrova con l’abito bianco irrimediabilmente rovinato e un futuro sposo più in ritardo di lei... A proposito, qualcuno ha visto gli anelli? Tornano i protagonisti di Assolo in questa novella inedita, un intrigante assaggio di quanto accadrà nel prossimo romanzo della serie Sulle punte.

Born in the late 1930s on the Central Asian steppe, Naja is the daughter of a clan chieftain of the Tushan nomads, proud descendants of Genghis Khan. When her fiercely independent father, U'lan, hears of Stalin's plan to bring the Tushan under state control and make them settle permanently in collective farms, he pledges to join forces with the invading German army. It is a pledge of honor that will take her father to the hell of Stalingrad and change Naja's life forever by eventually bringing her, at the age of nine, to ruined postwar Cologne. From there she must learn to adapt to a strange new culture, and to the strange family that has taken her in. But as Naja gradually grows more comfortable in this alien world, the memories of her young life on the steppe call out to her. She begins a difficult search for her past-and the past of her people-with only the word kuraj (Tushan for tumbleweed) as her talisman and guide. Silvia di Natale was born in Genoa in 1951 and moved to Germany in 1973, where she lives with her husband and son. She teaches and works as an ethnosociologist. Kuraj is her first novel.
