Goodreads 5 Stars – 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.
