Broadway hotshot Nik Kovalenko is a confirmed bachelor.
Ballroom champion Jess Davenport is a bona fide Scrooge.
Last year, they shared a midnight kiss at a New Year’s Eve party that made both of them believe—briefly—in the magic of the holiday season. The magic was cut short when Nik went on tour the next day, but he never stopped thinking about that kiss—or Jess.
When the holidays roll back around, Nik runs into Jess again. He doesn’t want to spend another year pining for the Scrooge who got away, so he tells Jess he’ll stay if she’ll give him a shot at being her Christmas Present.
Jess thinks he’s full of it, but she agrees to three dates. If Nik can make her believe in holiday magic in a place as un-wintery as Los Angeles—and convince her that he’s ready to stick around—she’ll give him a chance. But he won’t know until New Year’s Eve. If she kisses him at midnight, he’ll have his answer…
Dance All Night is a holiday novella set in the world of my Dance Off series. When I set out to design the cover, I wanted to make sure it matched the others in the series, but with a festive twist. The original design goal for these covers was to capture the feel of dance movie posters, like the ones for the Step Up movies. Since this story involves New Year’s Eve, I went with the fireworks imagery.
Designing the Dance Off covers has been a real treat. My degree is in computer arts, so this is literally what I went to school for. It’s nice to switch gears from writing and indulge this other creative side of myself, and I’m grateful I was able to do this for my series.
