Praise for Dancing Queen
Manic Readers - Alberta
Michele, a former pro dancer, has finally extricated herself from a very unsatisfying marriage, & is ready for a chance to kick up her heels, sexually & emotionally. Intent on a one night stand, she finds, instead, Mark, a most inventive & attentive lover, something she has never experienced before. As she falls in love with him, against her better judgement, she finds that he has way too many secrets that threaten to derail their fledgling relationship. By the time Nick inserts himself into her life, insisting he is just her type, despite her thoughts to the contrary, Mark has disappeared & bad people are after both him & Michele. Under Nick’s protection, Michele finally figures out what she wants from life, in a very good heroine’s journey. I’m not sure if I liked the conclusion of the story, & you can make up your own mind about that. However, in the meantime, there’s an abundance of very hot sex, & the love of a good man. 4.5 stars
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.

Amazon – Unleash your inner goddess through Dancing Queen. J. Bispham
I loved this book. It encapsulates the strength of a woman recently divorced who learns to unleash her true sexuality and to trust her inner goddess. Maybe more of us should listen to our inner goddess! My husband loved me reading this book as the erotic scenes certainly helped us step things up a notch in our bedroom. Thank you so much. Can't wait for the next book. 5 stars
Goodreads – Wow… Great Read! Peter Brady
Once I started reading this book, I was hooked. I couldn’t put it down. It was filled with hot sex, fun, relatable characters and an intriguing storyline. Considering it’s classed as erotic romance, I found it a really stimulating and enjoyable read, even for a guy. The author’s modern, conversational style made it easy to read and the detail of action kept me enthralled – I could see it all happening. The way she worked the main characters, Michele, Mark and Nick together was clever. A realistic plot with good emotion both from the women’s and men’s point of view. The twist at the end got me as I didn’t see it coming at all...and it could happen to anyone! One of the better books I’ve read in a while. 5 stars
Amazon – Brilliant. TCosta
As a seasoned reader in general but a novice in this genre, I was delighted and surprised by my inability to put this book down. Diane Demetre breathes life into her characters as though she has lived each and every one of them. Her ability to bring to life each erotic encounter is sublime. However, this is so much more than just another erotic fantasy. .....but if that is what you are after, you won't be disappointed. And just when you think you have it all figured out.....Bam!...more surprises!!! 5 stars
Amazon - Couldn't put it down!
I bought this book at the book launch & WOW couldn't put it down! Great read & loved the story line! Kept me wondering all the way through what is going to happen next! Boys could learn some tips from this one! 5 stars
Amazon - Brilliant writing style. Christine Simons
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. In fact I found it hard to put down at times. The sex scenes were explicit & exciting and left nothing to the imagination. How refreshing it was to have an author writing about a sexually dominant female and not as in most cases a submissive one. I will most definitely be looking forward to reading many good reads from this author who in my opinion has a brilliant writing style and use of the English language 5 stars
Amazon - Fantastic read anywhere! Ro London
Dancing Queen was excellent, fast-moving, full of twists and turns, very sexy, kept me guessing until the very end 5 stars
Goodreads – It was amazing! Erna Zell
I thought the book was really good. The descriptions of the scenes were really graphic and I found it hard to put it down when I was reading. I read out some scenes to my partner and got him aroused! Cannot wait to read the next one. Well done Diane. 5 stars
Goodreads – I received this book for free through Goodreads Giveaways. Alicia
Dancing Queen followed a 42-year-old divorcee in her quest for new meaning in her life, starting with her first one-night stand. Things don’t go exactly as planned, so Michele stops planning and decides to trust her life to fate.
It took a little bit to get into, but I liked that this book was as much to do with the heroine’s relationships with her friends as it was her male partners. Her life didn’t stop because a man was in it, she still met with friends, looked after her mother, worked, and had a normal life. It isn’t overly metaphoric or cryptic, so you don’t get the cringe inducing sex scenes I’ve read in others of this type. There was a decent plot woven throughout, and as long as you don’t mind coincidences and two degrees of separation you should enjoy it.
Overall, I could see this being empowering for women in the same circumstances and age bracket as the heroine, though some may find the moral code a little confronting. 3 stars
Goodreads – It was amazing. Robyn Powers
I just read Dancing Queen and couldn’t put it down. I loved the way the author wove the story of an ex-dancer on erotic adventures and what happens to her life along the way. It was not your normal erotic romance - it was much more. Really good characters, good story and easy reading. Then when you think you’ve got everything sorted and you know where it’s all going to end up. Bam! There’s a twist. Definitely one of my favourite 'girlie' reads. Looking forward to Dance of Love, Book Two 5 stars
Goodreads – Liked it. Raels 111
Michele is on a sexual awakening since her divorce from her bisexual husband. This is her journey about the men she meets along the way.
I didn't mind the writing style of this book but I personally am not a fan of fantasy and even though this is not fantasy suppose what didn't push me to rate it higher was all the Goddess stuff, but each to their own. 3 stars
Debbie – March 12, 2016

Praise for Tiny Dancer
Goodreads - Julia - February 14, 2016
Tiny Dancer took me on a first class adventure to Paris and surrounds - all from the comfort of my favourite reading chair, no passport needed. The sights, smells, sounds of Sam's Paris, so wonderfully described, it is the cherry on top of this beautiful love story. Not to mention the back stage access to one of Paris' hottest venues - Moulin Rouge!
Conquering her demons to follow her dreams, Sam will become your new best friend. Through love and loss, cheering and cheating, Sam keeps her desires alive no matter the moral or physical challenges.
The city of love does not disappoint, nor does the 'man book candy'. Tiny Dancer is full of weird and wonderful characters you will love as much as I did.
I'm now so eager to read books 1 and 3, to fill in the gaps and go on another exotic ride! 5 stars
Goodreads - AusRomToday - November 17, 2016
Hot off the heels of having loved book one in Diane Demetre's Dance of Love series (our review can be found here), we had high hopes for this second novel and it certainly lived up to our hopes and expectations. Tiny Dancer revolves around Samantha who has scored her dream job as a dancer at the Moulin Rouge but soon finds out that even the best laid plans don't always work out as we hope. Whilst in Paris, she is met by an ensemble of characters, all of whom are well developed and suitably nuanced to fit into the highly creative and tough lifestyle of the most famed cabaret dancers in the world. Additionally, Demetre paints vividly the atmosphere of Paris and the Moulin Rouge with such detail that it adds yet another layer of intimacy to the story. A wonderful read that we highly recommend. 4 stars
Amazon - Life lessons learnt in an amazing story told

Amazon - Fabulous!!! TCosta
I was not disappointed with this sequel to Dancing Queen. Captivating from start to finish. Bring on book 3 please. 5 stars
Amazon - Showgirls, Suspense & Sex!!!! Peter Brady
After reading the first book, Dancing Queen, by this author, I wondered if Tiny Dancer would deliver. It did! A well-written erotic romance with its share of twists and suspense. Love the characters and the way the author describes Paris and behind the scenes of the Moulin Rouge. 5 stars
Goodreads - Loved the setting, loved the story. Robyn Powers
Samantha O’Brien is a young dancer set to make the big time at the Moulin Rouge but arrives to find things aren’t all that glossy and glamorous at the cabaret. First there is the ultra-sexy director Tony Di Falco who I loved. What a scorching hot man he is with his great bod’ and backstage secrets. Then there is the young artist Philippe, who Sam falls in love with. He has secrets too, but not what you expect. One of my favourite characters was Madame Lucette. She keeps reading Sam’s tarot cards and what she discovers makes a terrific link to the story. Then there is the visit of a couple of characters from Diane’s first book, Dancing Queen who give familiarity and further depth to the story. Of course, there is a twist at the end which is what this author promises and she delivered again. What I like best about Diane’s work is that it is different to the usual angsty, predictable erotic romance and it includes great dance and sex scenes. I look forward to the next Dance of Love novel. 5 stars
Amazon - So good. Then Demetre takes you into the world of... Jocy H
Read this and you'll think you're really in Paris, walking the streets, drinking the coffee. So good. Then Demetre takes you into the world of dancers and you can't stop reading. And the sex is breathless. I was especially warmed by the strengths and failings of the characters, who you feel you know. Great read. 4 stars

Praise for Dance to a Gypsy Beat
Amazon - Ro London - November 23, 2016
Equally as attention-grabbing as the first book I read of Diane Demetre's, "Dancing Queen". Diane is obviously a very worldly lady with an acute sense of imagination and a gift for story-telling. A proficient writer, her words live on the page and the comparable descriptions are extremely clever. There are several areas of life she covers in these novelettes; exotic countries, erotic encounters, nature, luxury surroundings, the dark side of life, knowledge, guidance, advice, past and present family bonds, including intrigue and mystery regarding the tarot and other forms of guided meditation. I highly recommend her books, especially if you love to dance and love to love! I highly recommend her books 5 stars
Goodreads - Deborah Bispham
This is the third book I've read by Diane Demetre and I was absolutely delighted! What a great read. It has everything: a great story line mixed with sensual exploration; mystery; spirituality and wonderfully complex main characters. Couldn't put it down. Loved Aiden - just gorgeous and every woman's dream. Looking forward to the next book. 5 stars
Goodreads - Robyn Powers
I found this to be an amazing read and I adore the author's writing style. I was captivated by the setting, the characters, the Romani culture and the story line twists and turns. A fast flowing novel with just the right amount of eroticism thrown in. I fell in love with one of the lead characters (Aiden Bishop) very quickly and the relationship between Rafael & Carla had me wondering what would eventuate next. Well done Diane Demetre. I believe this is your best book to date. 5 stars
