BOOK DESCRIPTION:Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000446_00062]

To ambitious belly dancer Melanie Drake, celebrity drummer Taz Roman is a self-absorbed playboy she prefers to avoid… until he makes her a tantalizing offer.

He needs someone to pose as his live-in girlfriend to get his meddling sister off his back. In exchange, he’ll coach her through the upcoming Belly Dance Divas’ audition.

But when Melanie’s fake feelings turn real and their secret backfires, she discovers Taz isn’t the man she thought he was. As the deception threatens to destroy her dreams and his career, she must find the courage to fight for what she truly wants.

One passionate night. Two lost souls. A whole world of trouble.

 

Juggling two jobs to keep her belly dance studio afloat keeps Abby Anderson’s mind off her shattered love life–until a reawakened pain sends her into the arms of an anonymous stranger she plucks from the audience of her tribal belly dance show. No names, no strings, no romance. She tells herself it’s a harmless one night stand.
 
Until he turns up at her day job . . .
 
Derek Collier, the sexy heir to the Collier media dynasty, just landed everything he’s always wanted: the publisher’s seat at the Orange County Herald. Except his first order of business is to sell the newspaper. Reeling from his family’s betrayal, his only comfort is the memory of that mysterious belly dancer and the perfect night they spent together.
 
He won’t rest until he finds her again.
 
She’ll lose everything if he does.

 

SHIMMY FOR ME is a sexy contemporary romance with a cool and sophisticated alpha male hero, and a smart, bold, and definitely not-your-girl-next-door heroine. Their story is sometimes intensely passionate, sometimes laugh-out-loud funny, and always emotionally satisfying. For readers who enjoy contemporary romance, women’s fiction, new adult romance, and romantic comedy.

 

“DeAnna Cameron delivers satisfying happily-ever-afters that will leave you sighing.” –bestselling author Beth Yarnall

What’s your favorite scene in “Shimmy for Me” and why?

My favorite scene comes near the end and involves a bellygram situation that goes terribly wrong. When the idea for this scene first came to me, I imagined how it would go and how it could lead to additional scenes that in my mind would lead up to a particular ending. But when I sat down and started writing this scene, it didn’t go according to plan—at all. It completely took a left turn, and suddenly what I thought was going to be a lighthearted, fun scene turned into something very different. It really rattled me, but I just kept writing because the way things were unfolding felt true and real. So I went with it, and somehow the characters—Abby and Derek—found their own way back together. It wasn’t the path I had originally planned for them, but that made it even more fun for me. I felt like I was just observing their story, not creating it.

 

What is your favorite holiday tradition?

My husband and I started a tradition when we were dating of making a Christmas tree ornament with a photograph from a momentous occasion during the year. One year it was a photo from our first vacation together, another it was from the night he proposed. We now have ornaments that feature our wedding day, the birth of our daughter, and so many other wonderful occasions. It’s fun to have all these images on our holiday tree and to rekindle all those amazing memories.

 

If a reader curls up with your book on a cold, winter night, what’s the perfect seasonal beverage you’d recommend?

I’m a big fan of Bailey’s Irish Cream, but in honor of my family’s Scottish heritage I like to make a Scottish version. It tastes great in coffee or over ice, and it’s incredibly easy to make.

 

HOMEMADE SCOTTISH CREAM

Yield 4 cups

1 c. light cream

1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk

1 2/3 c. single malt Scotch whisky

1 t. instant coffee

2 T. chocolate syrup

1 t. vanilla extract

1 t. almond extract

Put all the ingredients in a blender and mix on high for 30 seconds. Pour the mixture in a tightly sealed container and keep in the refrigerator. The Scottish Cream will keep for up to two months in the fridge. Shake the bottle well before serving.

 

What are you working on next?

I’m finishing up “Dance with Me,” the first full-length novel in the California Belly Dance series, which will continue the story of the women of the Shimmy Shop belly dance studio. If all goes well, it should be available by early summer.
