Shimmy for Me (Romance)
1 chapters   —   updated Jan 21, 2015 08:45AM
Description: SHIMMY FOR ME is a sexy contemporary romance with a cool and sophisticated alpha male hero, and a smart, bold, and definitely not-your-girl-next-door heroine. Their story is sometimes intensely passionate, sometimes laugh-out-loud funny, and always emotionally satisfying. For readers who enjoy contemporary romance, women's fiction, new adult romance, and romantic comedy. "DeAnna Cameron delivers satisfying happily-ever-afters that will leave you sighing." --bestselling author Beth Yarnall *** One passionate night. Two lost souls. A whole world of trouble. Juggling two jobs to keep her belly dance studio afloat keeps Abby Anderson's mind off her shattered love life--until a reawakened pain sends her into the arms of an anonymous stranger she plucks from the audience of her tribal belly dance show. No names, no strings, no romance. She tells herself it's a harmless one night stand. Until he turns up at her day job . . . Derek Collier, the sexy heir to the Collier media dynasty, just landed everything he's always wanted: the publisher's seat at the Orange County Herald. Except his first order of business is to sell the newspaper. Reeling from his family's betrayal, his only comfort is the memory of that mysterious belly dancer and the perfect night they spent together. He won't rest until he finds her again. She'll lose everything if he does. ***
Dancing at The Chance excerpt (Literature & Fiction)
1 chapters   —   updated Jul 20, 2012 05:54PM
Description: New York City in 1907 is a kingdom of endless possibilities for anyone who dares to dream. The Gilded Age has ended, and immigrants fill the bustling streets. The glamour of Broadway lures those who desire the limelight-but only a few are fortunate enough to thrive in the lights of a city that casts long, dark, and merciless shadows... Pepper MacClair and her mother arrived penniless in New York thirteen years ago, and their fortune has not changed. A dancer of fluid grace and motion, Pepper is still only one chorus girl among many, struggling for an opportunity to prove herself worthy of something bigger. For now, Pepper dances at The Chance, a rundown venue long past its prime. It is not only Pepper's workplace, where she has pushed her physical endurance to its limit, but also her home. And as the larger world changes around her and she is pulled into the intrigues of New York's elite, it is her last hope, not only to fulfill her dream, but to fulfill her heart.
The Belly Dancer (Literature & Fiction)
1 chapters   —   updated Sep 03, 2009 04:52PM
Description: At the 1893 Chicago World's Fair, the modern, the exotic, and the ground-breaking collide. When Dora Chambers, an aspiring socialite, is charged with the task of enforcing proper conduct at the Egyptian belly dancing exhibition, she finds herself captivated by these marvelous women. And as her eyes are opened to the world beyond a life of social expectations, she finds the courage to break free and discover the truth about her own heart.
