Beschreibung:

The most prestigious ballroom dance competition in the United States.Two dancers need to win.Only one can.Nina Fortunova wasn't supposed to end up almost thirty, divorced, with her dreams of winning shattered. She teams up with Jorge Gonzalez, a hunky and hard-working Latin dancer, toreinvent the flashy Smooth style.When the Chairman of the Judges offers to throw the competition in their favor, Nina must decide how far she will go to win, even if it means losing Jorge.Carly Martindale is doing everything she's been taught not to do-placing her happiness first by dancing with Trey Devereux, the former three-time champion who's returned to competition for mysterious reasons.Carly falls deeply in love with Trey, but beneath his movie-star looks and Southern manners lays a tortured soul. To heal Trey, Carly must push herself beyond her limits-even if she loses herself in the process.Co-workers, then friends, and now arch competitors, Nina and Carly face off to determine who will be the winner-on and off the dance floor.Bright, emotive, and told through dual narrators, The Winner examines the costs associated with winning, the internalization of parental ambition, and the effect ofgenderedrolesonpersonal and professional relationships.The Winner is a literary romance that's perfect for readers who love Dancing with the Stars, Strictly Come Dancing, So You Think You Can Dance, and the classic elegance of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers.Start Reading TODAY the novel that readers call "e;beautifully written,"e; "e;a great read,"e; fantastic,"e; "e;a roller coaster,"e; and "e;a true winner."e;Author InterviewWhy did you choose to have dual narrators?I wanted to give readers a taste of what it's like to be a judge. When Carly and Nina faceoff, who should win? More importantly, WHY do you think one should win over the other? Is that decision based on what you know about their dancing or what you know about them as people? To me, the best type of reading is when I get in touch with my values.What could readers take away from The Winner?I wrote The Winner to function as a multi-level meditation on winning. There's the obvious takeaway that's encapsulated in thetagline:"e;Step in to step out."e; You can't win if you don't take the chance of losing.Then, there's what may be the most interesting thing I try to say about winning. Winning matters when it matters to other people, specifically future dancers. Forging a dance legacy is tricky since the idiom exists in the present tense. Inspiring another generation of dancers, to me, is the epitome of winning since your legacy is carried in their bodies.Who's your favorite character?I love them all, but I have a special fondness for Trey Devereux. I imagined him as a Louis XIV type who finds himself adrift in and damaged by the modern world.
