Hello My Loves,
I’m thrilled to finally share this video with you all today! I teamed up with fellow author, the lovely Stephanie Butland, to give her a tango lesson. In her gorgeous and heart-warming book, The Curious Heart of Ailsa Rae, Ailsa, following a heart transplant, embarks on a journey to do all the things she’s ever wanted to. One of which was to learn to tango.
Whilst researching the book, Stephanie took tango lessons to learn about this beautiful craft and I was delighted to be able to give her a lesson and have a twirl! This tremendous novel will appeal to anyone who believes in second chances (and loves dancing) and is available to buy now!
Talking of dancing (as I often do), my debut novel – One Enchanted Evening – centres around the spectacular ballroom of the exclusive Buckingham Hotel in London’s Mayfair where the rich and powerful, politicians, film stars, even royalty, rub shoulders with Raymond de Guise and his troupe of talented dancers from all around the world. They must enchant them, captivate them, and sweep away their cares. Accustomed to charming and waltzing with the highest of society, Raymond knows a secret from his past could threaten all that he holds dear.
Nancy Nettleton, new chambermaid at the Buckingham, finds hotel life a struggle after leaving her small hometown. She dreams of joining the dancers on the ballroom floor as she watches, unseen, from behind plush curtains and discreet doors. She soon discovers everyone at the Buckingham – guests and staff alike – has something to hide…
But the storm clouds of war are gathering, and beneath the glitz and glamour of the ballroom lurks an irresistible world of scandal and secrets.
You can pre-order your copy of ‘One Enchanted Evening’ today, from here on my blog in lovely hardback and digital versions too.
I do so hope you’ve enjoyed this video of Stephanie and me, and I hope you’re inspired to take up dancing for yourself!

Stay tuned until next time, my loves,

No one puts Anton...or his Kärcher UK’s FC 5 Hard Floor Cleaner in the corner take a look behind the scenes of our new project!... 🕺
That’s a bit unkind. Those people who come on Strictly are non dancers and they are there to LEARN to dance. Anton is a pro and understands that. Are you a good dancer? Why can’t the world be a bit more kind towards others, instead of criticising and judging their every move on the dance floor?? . 😫
