What if you wrote a steamy, erotic novel that was so hot bookstores couldn’t keep it on their shelves? What if you couldn’t tell anyone you wrote it?
At night, nurse Cassie Calabria pens a bodice-ripper novel, using an alias. She sends it to a few agents, then forgets about it. She’s more than surprised when she gets an offer for a publisher to include her book, Wild Rose, in a “summer-of-love special.” Wild Rose becomes a blazing bestseller. Suddenly she realizes she can't let anyone know that she wrote it. What would her children think? Or her own mother, who “taught her better,” and, worse, her husband who would question her made-up fantasies of sex on the beach. How could she be thrown into the “red-light district” spotlight and still be a good mom?
Unless she went incognito.

Dance Like You Mean It by Jeanne Skartsiaris is a novel women will embrace, especially those who are closet writers, authors, journalists, wives, and mothers. It is a struggle between doing what you are passionate about and having success, and being able to take credit for it even though it compromises the morals and values you and your family hold dear. To be proud of a best-selling steamy novel or stay anonymous and not be able to stand in the spotlight? Can you have both and not feel ashamed or guilty? Just how different are Cassie, the author, and Rosemary, the protagonist? Read and relate. Most authors write either from experience, history, or fantasy, which has been hidden from all except God Himself. Cassie let’s her desires and imagination soar, and it surely does…right to the top of the charts. But what now? The best of both worlds!
