Dancing on a Heartstring


This is one tango neither of them will forget . . .


My best friend moved to Ireland when she met the love of her life and opened up a dance studio. Now, she's throwing a ballroom dance competition to coincide with the Lisdoonvarna matchmaking festival to help her business. And she's asked me to compete . . . How can I say no? Plus, it is Ireland, after all. But I didn't have the heart to tell her I don't have a partner to bring. Yet another one backed out on me. Apparently, a partner who dances with a cane is just too much for them. 


How did I get roped into this? I drive the tour bus for the company beneath the dance shop. I keep to myself. Better yet, I don't even have to talk since my Scottish accent messes up the Irish aesthetics of the tour. And I like it that way. But the owner is so bloody sweet, and I have to admit when I came up those studio steps to back out, it only took one look at my 'partner' to change my mind. I have no dance experience, but I'm sure going to do everything in my power to stay in this competition. Who knew the Argentine Tango was going to be my undoing. I just hope she doesn't want to take part in the matchmaking festival.

But will she want to take part in the matchmaking festival herself, or will she be happy with her newfound partnership? She came for an Irish matchmaking festival after all, not a Scottish one. 

Read if you like books with Irish scenery, sexy men with accents, lots of banter, quirky border collies, swoony dance scenes, steamy kisses, vulnerable characters, adorable grandparent figures, matchmaking festivals, and emotional journeys. (This is a 'sweet' novel with no cursing and descriptive kissing only).

Tropes: forced proximity, holiday romance, fish out of water, different worlds, nobody thinks it will work, dark past, matchmaker romance, emotional scars, and instant family.

Rep: “Own Voices” hemorrhagic cysts, fibromyalgia, mental health, and suspected endometriosis. Other mental health disorders are also represented.

—------------------Triggers (spoilers may be included)----------------------
Triggers (spoilers may be included): Minimal discussions of grief, loss of a sibling, infertility, and chronic pain with endometriosis and fibromyalgia.
