Dancing Queen (Dance of Love book 1)
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.
Aided and abetted by three vivacious girlfriends, Michele embarks on her new erotic adventures, but gets more than she expects, when mysterious yacht captain Mark Miller unleashes her wanton desires. 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 new-found freedom? Will she choose one man over the other? And who’s the special someone she’s been unconsciously searching for all her life?
Dancing Queen is a steamy, erotic romance where you can expect the unexpected from the heady heights of love to everything in between.
Reader Advisory: This book contains a sexually empowered heroine and willing men to fulfil her desires. Casual sex scenes with recreational drug use.
What AusRom Today thought:
A refreshing genre-busting story of a divorced, older (I hasten to add by society’s standards not mine) heroine who is determined to embrace her singledom while simultaneously casting aside her self- and societally-imposed sexual repression through casual erotic encounters.
Diane Demetre offers a story that challenges our pre-conceived notions of what “women of a certain age” should or should not be doing and she does this in an empowering manner. The heroine embraces and cherishes her female friendships and though this aided in the flow of the plot, it also highlights the importance for women of having encouraging and supportive female companionship.
Most importantly, we see the heroine herself allow the experiences of her new-found freedom to shape her own future thus enabling her to escape the repressive nature of her pre-divorce life.
All in all, an erotic and exciting read sure to captivate and thrill readers of any age.
