Somewhere in California, youngest sister Jade's story, Book 3 in the Michaels Family Romance series, is here!
Check out the blurb:
Dancing is everything—until it leads to love.
Jade Michaels has a simple life: home, school, dance studio—and lot to prove in the shadow of dynamic, talented older sisters. She runs away and risks everything to compete in the first-ever dance reality show in LA in 1992, and meets the perfect guy—until she finds out he’s her sister’s ex.
Four years ago, producer Brandon Forbes rescued Jade’s sister Pearl from a mugger—and discovered her as a model. He fell hard, but she married someone else. Brandon thought his broken heart was ancient history—until Jade’s dazzling audition activates conflicted feelings he can’t deny.
Can Jade and Brandon navigate the past that separates them?
“Toby Neal always delivers! In Jade Michaels’ journey to find independence and success, love dances into her life, and the fireworks leap off the page. Don't miss this delightful new adult tale about the youngest of the Michaels sisters!”~Author Eden Baylee
I’m so happy to debut youngest Michaels girl Jade’s story! I danced in my younger years, and have been a huge fan of the So You Think You Can Dance reality show. Every interest I have eventually finds itself into my writing, so I enjoyed revisiting the intense drama of the best competitive dancing to hit TV, and inventing a show.
By making this story a “retro” romance, set in 1992, I could include some of the artists and songs that defined the late 1980s and early 1990s, and to remember things like Walkmans and pagers and how easy it was for misunderstandings to happen in the age before cell phones.
The world has changed a lot since then, but finding love, in all its beautiful complexity, has not.
