Waltz of Seduction by Natasha Blackthorne (e-novella)

In Waltz of Seduction, we are given a glimpse into the life of a typical British couple in an amiable relationship. Sara is a merchant's daughter who is uncomfortable in her husband's world. Colin married Sara for her money but has grown to feel more for Sara than was initially required of him.  

Theirs is a comfortable relationship --

Except that Colin and Sara both want something deeper or more passionate from each other, but they don't have the words to express what they want.

So they do it through the waltz.  A private one, done at night when the servants have gone to bed and the lights are out.

It is during this quiet moment, away from society and it's expectations that husband and wife take tentative steps to get closer to each other.

Blackthorne aptly uses the waltz to convey the intricate dance this couple must engage in in order to get close to each other. The waltz is a dance that borders on the scandalous -- and, like the waltz, husband and wife have to tread the fine line between what they feel is "acceptable" and what is "scandalous" -- their exploration allows Sara and Colin to express their true feelings for each other.
