Release day: Tiny Dancer
Today is the official release of Tiny Dancer by Diane Demetre (Dance of Love, book 2) (ebook and print, Luminosity Publishing). Here’s the blurb:
At twenty-four, Samantha O’Brien scores her dream job as a dancer at the famous Moulin Rouge, only to arrive in Paris to find her well-laid plans in disarray. Fortuitously, Sam is rescued by the eccentric, tarot-card reading proprietress of Hotel Hollandaise, who cautions that Paris is for lovers, but not always love.
As Sam launches into her new career, the show’s super sexy, Sicilian stage director, Tony Di Falco reveals he is more than just a creative genius and hard taskmaster, leaving Sam to wonder whether secrets, specifically her own, are indeed best shared.
Meeting Philippe Lacroix, a struggling, young artist in Montmartre saves Sam from imploding under the pressure. He introduces her to the city of love, captivating her with his angelic good looks and sensuous touch. Yet the mounting attraction intensifies between Samantha and her passionate nemesis Tony, and a tense, sexually-charged relationship threatens to overwhelm them both. But the show must go on.
Filled with backstage bitchiness, tough rehearsals, a sprinkling of cocaine and the French addiction to cigarettes, Samantha grapples with her new life. Then without warning, Sam’s destiny changes literally before her eyes and she finally discovers that even in the most romantic city of the world, you don’t find love, love finds you.
Diane dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:
Having been a professional dancer, choreographer and director, I wanted to give readers an insight into the world of dance through my erotic romances in the Dance of Love series. Tiny Dancer deals with the glamorous Moulin Rouge and the difficulties a young dancer finds when she first joins the ranks of the world’s most prestigious show. So much of this plot comes from what really goes on backstage; the lives, loves and secrets that dancers eat and breathe. It also deals with the inexplicable question many women face—do I choose love or do I choose career? I won’t tell you what my heroine chooses. That’s for you to discover…
To celebrate the release of Tiny Dancer, Diane is giving away 5 autographed copies of Dancing Queen (Dance of Love, book 1)—details on her website.
