Advance praise for TAKE THE LEAD
“A ballroom dance competition is a beehive of activity and emotion, and the intensity of that environment is conveyed very well in the first entry of the Dance Off duology. Personalities are well developed and the storyline flows smoothly, as locations change and the passion of the competition flares higher. Gina and Stone are a lovable couple who make it easy to root for them.”
Take the Lead is everything I look for in a romance—lovable and layered characters, sizzling chemistry, and a charming and authentic voice. I loved it!
