I loved this book! Mya is a feisty cuban and a temper to boot. Jackson is a sexy geek. But when these two get together it's magic! I highly recommend this book!

I was given an ARC for an honest review. We revisit Maya after she set her brother up with a visit to the castle in Flirting With Fire.

This time Maya is the center of attention when Jackson comes back to take care of his Gramma who is Maya's next door neighbor. The love and chemistry between Maya and Jack hasn't faded despite the distance or Jack's two year absence.

However, a very real threat to their happily ever after makes itself known so will Maya and Jack's love be able to stand the storm?

When Mya's ex comes home, the passion between them is still there. But so are the same reasons why they broke up. Can they make it work a second time as Jackson fills in for her hurt dance partner? Will feelings get in the way of their dance competition? What about when Jackson gets the chance of a lifetime? Will he make the same choice that lost him Mya the first time, AGAIN?

I found Tango and Lace an entertaining, sexy story. I liked Mya and Jackson together, how well the opposites attract thin

If you're looking for a hot read on a hot night, I recommend this book. It has everything you could want between the covers. Rekindled love, suspense and the Tango.

If you've never read Misty Dietz, I suggest you pick up a copy of Tango & Lace and fall in love with love.

Tango & Lace is a fast-paced story with great characters and a fabulously entertaining plot.

Mya and Jackson have a combustible chemistry that obliterates two years apart, makes their pulses race, and sets the dance floor on fire too. The unusual mix of scientific excellence and the seductive influence of Cuban dance made for an all-round exhilarating and breathtaking read.

Ms Dietz definitely has a new and excited reader who can’t wait to discover more of this author’s fabulous work.

Tango & Lace by Misty Dietz was a fast paced romance with a touch of mystery that added to it's deliciousness. Mya and Jackson set the pages on fire as soon as they meet again with their chemistry. The story flowed smoothly, the romance was hot, dancing the Tango created more flames and all of the characters were well developed. A great read and a fiery addition to The Hard Men of the Rockies series. Read it and be swept off your feet by the Tango. ...more

This was a fantastic second chance romance story from Misty Dietz. Mya and Jackson were high school sweethearts until problems in their relationship drove a wedge between them. Now years later they are reunited and although the problems are there, their feelings and connection is still there too. Tango and Lace is a gripping story filled with drama, heartache, healing, a sassy, spitfire of a dancer, a sweet geoarcheologist, a kidnapping, danger, passion, romance, and love. This is a captivating ...more

Tango and Lace by Misty Dietz was a riveting, fast paced novella that I really got into and enjoyed! Jackson has 'finally' come home to help care for his grandmother Rosie and help fix up her house. But home also means seeing his former lover Mya...a hot blooded woman with whom things ended poorly. Mya is part of his grandmother's life, so there is no way they can avoid each other. When they meet again, all kinds of sparks fly, but Mya is determined not to fall for him again. Circumstances push ...more

Great book. At first I was concerned with the Spanish in the book since I don't know what it says but it just added to the books unique qualities. I loved this love story with a little bit of suspense.

"Love isn't perfect. People aren't perfect, but this could be your second chance." I think Jack's grandmother, Rosie, said it best with this one quote. Her statement sums up the whole story. Mya and Jack are both complex people with their fair share of flaws, but their opposites definitely attract. I had a hard time with some of the bigger words that were used, but it does make sense to use a more intellectual dialogue since one of the main characters is a geoarchaeologist.

I really enjoyed this short story in this series, it seems gramma`s family who seem to be all sexy men are really taking good care of her. it`s a good story line with Jackson and Mya getting close again after 2 years apart. It seems dancing is`nt the only thing on there minds. Some very sexy dance scene`s and the threat of someone harming Mya and of course gramma`s matchmaking make for an enjoyable read and of course the well written sex scenes help too.

Misty Dietz has invented a new genre: Second Chance Romantic Comedy Action Suspense.

I love it!!

This was a definite deviation from her awesome Paranormal Romantic Action Suspense 'Unholy Inc' series but it still had the same fast-paced captivating story-line one can always expect to find in a book by Ms. Dietz.

This is the second book in her Colorado Heartthrobs Series and it starts off with a bang. Literally. The action does not stop there. Chemical filled canisters, stalking, kidnapping, arson a

Misty Dietz loves her man, her kids, kayaking, and Dean Winchester (oh yeah, Supernatural fans unite!). She writes romance, but she reads anything she can get her hands on, usually with her fur baby on her lap.

She spends her days writing sexy, adrenaline-fueled stories, enjoying family and friends, and praying her children don't come home with math homework.
