AUSSIE MONTH with Diane Demetre
Describe yourself in one word:
Tell us about Dancing Queen, Dance of Love, Book One:
Dancing Queen is a steamy love story that follows the life of ex-dancer Michele Johnston, who having been in monogamous relationships all her life, is recently divorced at forty-two, and decides to explore her repressed sexuality with the support of her three best girlfriends. As she embarks on her first casual sex experience, she is propelled into the familiar, yet unplanned, territory of falling in love with Mark Miller, a mysterious yacht captain from Sydney. Further complications arise, when Greek businessman, Nick Stavros falls madly in love with her, much to her distress. The stakes get raised when Nick promises her the happy-ever-after ending, whilst Mark turns out to be someone she least expects, but has been unconsciously searching for all her life. Laced with divine intervention, Dancing Queen proves nothing in life happens by accident, and that destiny is designed in our moments of decision.
What inspired this novel?
I wanted to write a counter book to Fifty Shades of Grey. My heroine is empowered, feisty, intelligent and has sex on her terms and doesn’t put up with any #@$*. Also, having been a dancer, choreographer and director in the live entertainment industry for many years, I wanted to incorporate the inherent freedom and sensuality of dance in my love stories. The dancing moments add another dimension to the pace, the characters and their sex-play.

When Michele Johnston, a sexy forty-two-year-old ex-dancer from the Moulin Rouge gets divorced, she leaps into her new world of singledom with unbridled passion. Having been in monogamous relationships all her life, she decides to cast off her inhibitions and release her repressed sexuality through casual sex.

Further complicating matters, debonair Greek businessman Nick Stavros arrives on the scene and falls madly in love with her, promising the happy-ever-after ending. Although not her type, Michele finds his charm and persistence strangely bewitching.
But will she give up her newfound freedom? Will she choose one man over the other? And who’s the special someone she’s been unconsciously searching for all her life?
