Lawyer Sandy Templesmith is a fighter at heart. Growing up as one of only a handful of black women in Haskell, Wyoming, she has worn her strength instead of her heart on her sleeve, especially with the likes of Ronny Bonneville panting after her. So when she meets Joginder Sandhu, she is finally able to breathe deeply, relax, and have fun.
Until her old habits ruin everything.
Jogi has never met a woman like Sandy, and even after their hot fling falls apart, he can’t stop thinking about her. Not while tackling his work as an IT tech at Paradise Space Flight and not while pursuing his passion as a photographer. He still wants her, but pain and betrayal keep them apart.
At least until the two are paired up for a sizzling dance competition.
Forced to waltz, quick-step, and tango through their issues, Sandy and Jogi dance around each other and their failed attempt at love. But love has other plans. When the stakes of the competition are raised, so is the heat level between them. Their shared determination to beat the Bonnevilles could be their second chance at love.
PLEASE BE ADVISED: Steam Level – Very Hot

This is a slightly different take on the Nerds of Paradise. In this one, Farmer takes on an unusual duo: an African-American female bulldozer of a lawyer and an Indian-American "nerd" who works at Paradise Space Flight. Sandy and Jogi are attracted to each other, but Sandy has no comprehension of how to have a relationship with a man since she believes she will lose herself as part of a couple. Some ridiculous things happen, culminating in a bet that forces Jogi and Sandy into a dance contest. There is an HEA, and I commend Farmer for actually allowing her white characters (this is Wyoming) to show their antagonism towards people of color. That's way more realistic.
