Bridget O'Bannon is ready for a do-over. After years of pretending she had a happy marriage and denying that she missed the friends and family she'd left behind, she's headed home to restart her life.

But working alongside her family every day at their bakery isn't as easy as whipping up her favorite chocolate peanut butter cake. Her mother won't give her a moment's peace, and her sister Abby is keeping secrets of her own. And there doesn't seem to be enough frosting in the world to smooth over the cracks forming between them.

Bridget can see the recipe for a happy life—including the possibility of a new romance—written out before her, but first she and her family will need to lay bare their secrets and rediscover the most elusive ingredients of all: forgiveness, laughter, and love.

Blogging Hiatus is Now OVER

I have been away from this blog for a while and I apologize for that. I left the blog alone and abandon for a while but that is now over and you will slowly start to see this blog come back to life.  I needed time to sort through other things and I was going to use this blog for YA Only when I first started it but that is now changing you will find anything and everything you can find at my other blogs Read Between the Lines (my main blog), Twisted Sisters Book Club (ran by a group of ladies for the purpose of sharing reviews) and Nerdy Books Dragon Realm (this blog is ran with Mellena from The Book Quarry). For a moment, things got out of hand trying to cater to just one genre on this blog (it is now a rare occasion when I do YA Only Material) when there are so many genres I enjoy. I know it has been a few years since I have been away, but I never forgot my reading family and my love for books on this particular blog. I am just ready to embark on new and exciting stories, new content and authors on A Dance in the Dark. I wanted to take this time to thank everyone that has stuck around while I was gone. I really appreciate your dedication to A Dance in the Dark and I look forward to the beginning of the next chapter for this blog.

A Dance in the Dark has been redone with a new theme and header and will no longer cater to YA Only Titles. I hope you will continue to stick with me while I reinvent A Dance in the Dark:  Romance in all forms...

Seeing him again tumbles Charlie back into her past. There are still so many unanswered questions: he’s convinced she left him, she’s convinced he left her. Charlie minimizes the ‘ex’ factor. Tell that to her emotions that are running wild.
But Brian’s not there to rekindle their romance. He’s overseeing Queenswood Communications’ recent merger after a hostile takeover. Guess whose name is at the top of the list?

Book Trailer Blitz Girl of Myth and Legend by Giselle Simlett

Title: Girl of Myth and Legend
Author: Giselle Simlett
Series: The Chosen Saga
Genre: YA Fantasy Romance
Publisher: WWS Publishing
Release Date: Dec 29 2015
Edition/Formats: eBook, Print & Audio
Blurb/Synopsis:
A girl with a past she tries to forget, and a future she can’t even imagine.
Leonie Woodville wants to live an unremarkable life. She wants routine, she wants repetition, she wants predictability. So when she explodes in a blaze of light one morning on the way to her college, it’s enough to put a real crimp in her day.
And things only get weirder…
Leonie learns from her father that she is last of the Pulsar, a phenomenally powerful member of a magical species called the Chosen. It will be her sole duty to protect the Imperium, a governing hierarchy, from all enemies, and to exceed the reputation of the Pulsar before her. So – no pressure there, then.
Leonie is swept away from her rigorous normality and taken to a world of magic. There, she is forced into a ceremony to join her soul to a guardian, Korren, who is both incredibly handsome and intensely troubled, a relationship for which ‘it’s complicated’ just really doesn’t cut it.
But Leonie is soon to learn that this ancient world is no paradise. With violent dissidents intent to overthrow the Imperium, and dark entities with their own agenda, she and Korren find themselves caught in a war where they will have to overcome their differences if they are to survive.
