Dance with Me bonus scene

The events in Dance with Me take place three years after Dimitri and Natasha first meet, so here’s a bonus scene showing how that moment went down. I shared this on Facebook last week, but I wanted to give this scene a permanent home on my site. I’ll be sharing more like this with my newsletter subscribers, so make sure you’re signed up!

I recognize him immediately.

Dimitri Kovalenko, one of the judges, a dancer who catapulted to stardom thanks to a dance movie made almost 15 years ago.

He’s so hot I can’t stand it.

This has been quite a year, folks. Back in January, I had just finished editing Take the Lead and sent it off to agents and the Golden Heart contest. Natasha and Dimitri had emerged as the next couple in The Dance Off series, and I had a vague blurb. That was it. Now, less than a year later, Take the Lead was named one of The Washington Post‘s 5 Best Romances of 2017 and Dance with Me is available for everyone to read. So yeah…quite a year. Thanks for following along, and I hope you enjoy Natasha and Dimitri’s story.

Dance with Me, the second in a sizzling new series about finding love on and off the dance floor.

Natasha Díaz is having a day. She’s trying to prove she can make it as a professional dancer, but she’s overworked, out of cash, and her roommate has just moved out. When she comes home to find a hole in her ceiling and her bedroom flooded, she’s desperate enough to crash with the one guy she can’t quit. She accepts his offer with one condition: no sleeping together while she’s living with him.

Dimitri Kovalenko has never lived with a woman before. But when Tasha’s in need of a place to stay, he suggests she move in without a second thought. He accepts her condition, hoping she won’t stick to it. They’re good together, both in the ballroom and the bedroom. Since their first dance, she’s never been far from his thoughts. Sure, she’s a pro and he’s one of her show’s judges, but they’re not currently filming, so no one needs to know.

Living in close quarters shows Dimitri a side of Natasha he’s never seen before, and he likes it. A lot. Too bad she’s doing everything in her power to keep him at arm’s length. When an injury forces Natasha to take it easy or risk her ability to dance, it’s his chance to show her that the rules have changed, and she can trust him with her heart.

Countdown to Dance with Me

Dance with Me, Book 2 in The Dance Off series, releases in three weeks!

I do have more stories planned for the characters from The Dance Off world, but no release dates yet. Hopefully next year! In the meantime, I’m having fun developing a new contemporary romance project and gearing up for Dance with Me‘s release on December 12th. As with Take the Lead, I’ve made a Dance with Me Spotify playlist based on what I listened to while I was writing the book and songs that inspired some of the scenes, and a Pinterest board for Dimitri and Natasha. Enjoy! And if you’ve started a playlist or board for Dance with Me, let me know!
