Fever (A Ballroom Romance #1) by Tonya Plank

Rory’s once promising ballet career was destroyed by family tragedy and illness. She turned her life around and became a lawyer. Now at the start of her legal career, she lacks passion in her work and self-confidence in her abilities. But when she meets gorgeous, mysterious Russian ballroom dancer, Sasha, at a firm holiday party, her passions for life and dance are immediately re-kindled.

Since being torn from his Siberian family as a child, Sasha’s life ambition has been to be world ballroom champion, a path he was destined for until his former partner pulled the plug on their partnership. She went on to win the world title, leaving him, without a partner equal in ability, forever in second place. The instant he lays eyes on Rory, he recognizes the depth of her passion and talent, and falls hard for her in more ways than one.

But she also reminds him of great pain from his past. He must not only overcome his own demons but convince her to leave her demanding law career, and all that she has worked for in her adult life, to train with him full-time in order for their partnership – both on and off the dance floor – to work.

This is part one in a continuing three-book series.


Wow!!! I'm in love. I forgot how sexy dancing could be. If you like movies like Save the Last Dance or Dirty Dancing, you will probably enjoy this.

Rory dreamed of being a ballet dancer ever since she was a child, but she didn't get support from her family and friends. So she put her dreams on hold and became a lawyer. 

Working at a small firm, she felt like something was missing. Her spark in life came back when she saw Sasha dancing passionately at a company party. 

So she signs up for dance classes at his studio and learns different styles of dancing. She is addicted to catching up on the things she missed. But with 14 years of ballet experience, Rory has to break her old dancing habits. Out with the old, in with the new!

She and Sasha have a secret attraction. You know they want each other, and you can feel their desire. Even though they don't do anything too intimate, their dancing is HOT. I suspect that the next books will be much juicier. The anticipation is killing me.
