Today is a special day. Not only it is a wonderful, supportive and overall fabulous friend’s birthday, but it’s release day for DANCE WITH ME!
If you’re saying, “That’s great and all, Hayden, but…um… what’s it about? Here’s the blurb:
Champion ballroom dancer Katerina Nemecek pushed the love of her life away when he offered to save her studio from foreclosure. She loved him despite the secrecy surrounding their relationship, but she refused to take advantage of him or his wealth.
Mason Everett wants nothing more than to share his life, his family, and his fortune with Kat, but keeping her a secret was the only way he could keep her safe. He’d rather hide her away than chance losing her.
When Kat and Mason’s relationship finally goes public, it sets in motion a plan to keep them apart. Can they survive the firestorm to dance together forever?

Oh, and speaking of the lovely birthday girl, Maureen has gushed about DANCE here: http://bitchcanwriteabook.blogspot.com/2012/05/dance-with-me-everetts-of-tyler-by.html I can’t begin to tell you how much of a cheerleader she is (although, admittedly, she tends to just scream, “MORE!” at me). She and Cindy at BCWAB are amazing, and I have to give a shout-out to my beta-readers (a wonderful group), as well as a big, giant pat on the back to Jodi Jo, the incredible cover artist. I hope the book lives up to the visual she created (props go to Jimmy Thomas and RNC for the original photo, too).
So, yeah, now what? Well, it’s long past time for Chapter 12 of SPEEDING (I heard you, Maureen!), and FIGHT FOR ME is knocking around in my head, too.
Oh, you wanted a snippet? Let’s pretend it’s Sunday and do Six Sentences.
His eyes traveled slowly down her body, snagging on all the good places. “You look wonderful, Katerina,” he said, his voice rough.
She swallowed. “We match, Mason. We look like we’re trying too hard.”
“You were made for me, babe. Matching or not won’t change that.”
