Step up, Grant Farley…not your typical ballet student!

Football pro Grant Farley is nursing an injury and needs to get back into shape fast. Ballet wouldn’t be his first or even his last choice, but he’s desperate. Enter tantalizingly prim teacher Jasmine Bell one disapproving arch of her eyebrow and Grant knows he’ll enjoy getting her tutu in a flutter!

But it’s not only Grant’s flexibility that Jasmine’s pushing to the limit! He knows she feels the heat between them, so why won’t she give in to it? Time to convince Jasmine that if she’s brave enough to dance en pointe she can certainly handle a fling with him!

Dear Reader,

Have you ever felt so compelled to follow a dream that you would do anything you could to make it a reality?  This book is my dream.  After many a night tapping away at my computer-endless cups of coffee by my side-I’m thrilled to share my first novel with you, and even more thrilled to be part of the sparkly, flirty, fun-loving Mills & Boon ® Modern Tempted series.

The story of Grant and Jasmine was inspired long ago, when I read an article about footballers who studied ballet to increase their agility and flexibility.  When I decided on day one of National Novel Writing Month in 2012 that I would take a leap of faith, this idea came to life.  I love the concept of an ‘opposites attract’ romance, where two people seem so different only to fall in love and discover all the things they have in common beneath the surface.

This country-boy turned football star and former soloist ballerina meet when they’ve just exited very dark places in their lives.  Both Grant and Jasmine are damaged souls who are desperate to keep their dreams alive and wary of what others want from them.

Whether you’re a lover of the arts or a mad footy fan (or both!), I hope you enjoy watching Grant and Jasmine help one another on their journey to healing and happy-ever-after.

With love

Elise Johnson has more important things to concentrate on than men…saving her struggling ballet studio for starters! So when gorgeous Col Hillam–her brother’s best friend–saunters back into her life, she’s none too keen. He might be proposing a purely professional arrangement, but the last time they got carried away by their crazy attraction it ended in disaster!

Col knows Elise is off-limits, but it only makes her more tempting…. With chemistry this hot, surely that bro code is now null and void…?

Dear Reader,

Family is something that’s very dear to my heart.  When I was growing up my parents instilled into me and my little sister a very strong sense of what it means to be part of a family-the give and take, the responsibility and the reward.  I’ll be honest:  in my teenage years it drove me nuts!  But I never lacked a shoulder to cry on, a hug to ease my sadness or a high-five to congratulate me on a job well done.  Looking back, I wouldn’t trade it for anything.

When I started writing Col and Elise’s story I wondered what it would be like for two people with very difficult family lives to come together.  Elise grew up in a home where her family members didn’t demonstrate their love, or any type of strong emotion for that matter.  Col, on the other hand, came from an abusive home where strong emotions (of the worst kind) ruled.

Writing their story was not easy, and I might have shed a few tears along the way, but I hope you love watching Elise and Col learn to trust in one another as much as I loved writing about it.

With love

Stefanie
