Dancing with his Heart Jul 31, 2008
Lauren Peay comes face to face with the man that made her life hell in high school. Secretly attracted to him then and now, Lauren wants to throw his offer of sponsorship back in his face but she can't. She is the mother of a daughter with autism and knows that the money she receives from Alex Saunders will allow her to enroll her child into a special school. Lauren doesn't count on Alex's tenacity and stubbornnessl to be a part of Lauren's life.
Alex Saunders has loved Lauren Peay since high school; where he was mean and ugly to her just to get her attention. Alex knew he had gone too far when his friends cornered her one day and almost hurt her. Since then he has tried to redeem himself enough to make her want him. Now that he knows she needs a sponsor to help with ballroom dancing expenses, Alex hopes that she will not only forgive him, but also learn to care as much for him as he does for her.
Sexual tension is afoot and Lauren doesn't like how she feels when Alex is around. She also doesn't like to be beholden to him, but with a dancing competition just around the corner, she continues to allow Alex into her life. The thing that bothers her most is not actually Alex, but the way he makes her feel. Lauren has been burned before, not only by Alex, but also by her child's father. It is going to take a special man for her to forget past hurts and trust again. Alex refuses to come second best and so he sets out to win her heart.
Dancing with His Heart made my heart ache. I saw and felt the loneliness of both Alex and Lauren and found myself cheering them on from the sidelines as well as wanting to shake both of them out of their stubbornness. Totally in awe of the depth of Lauren's commitment to her daughter, I found myself equally teary eyed at Alex's response to Lauren's daughter too. I continued to sit on pins and needles hoping against hope that forgiveness would be forthcoming. Alex, while he was horrendous to Lauren in high school, I could envision just a young kid wanting to act cool around his friends. The fact that he made amends just made me tingly.
Dancing with His Heart was a very poignant read that I found completely satisfying. While the characters didn't actually consummate their feelings, the sexual tension was there and it kept me on the edge of my seat. By the book's end, I was giddy with how it finished. All in all, a very good, satisfying read. I can't wait to read the next Ballroom Dance novel, Noon, also by this talented writer. I love when I read new authors and Katherine Warwick is now on my author search radar!

Katherine Warrick has brought ballroom dancing competion to life in her book "Dancing With His Heart." Alex and Lauren have an undeniable chemistry from the start. Katherine's character, Lauren also deals with the challenge of raising a child with autism. Together Lauren and Alex step up to the challenges they each have in their lives and manage to find common ground they can relate on. A must read, I didn't put it down once I picked it up!
Half Ballroom romance. Half personal journey? Oct 16, 2007
Katherine Warwick mixes escapist romance and personal poignancy with "Dancing With His Heart". It's the story of Lauren Peay, a champion ballroom dancer who has to deal with an old acquaintance coming back into her life (Alex Saunders) and the feelings that stirs up, while struggling to raise an daughter with autism. While reading the book, you may find that the scenes with Lauren and her daughter are rife with love, anguish and pain. Then when you read the "About The Author" section in the rear of the book, you'll discover that Ms. Warwick is herself the mother of child with autism. This gives the book a realism and a poignancy that gives the love story a real-life obstacle to overcome, rather than your usual romance novel challenge. I've read Ms. Warwick's "Noon"...and while I enjoyed that, I enjoyed "DWTH" more because of the storyline with Lauren and her daughter, because I didn't feel like I was reading about Lauren Peay. I felt like I was reading part of the Katherine Warwick story. Recommended read.

Classy, sweet and sexy all in one! Apr 27, 2007
I absolutely LOVED this book! I was hooked from the first page. If you like romance/dance novels or just a good, light read, this is definately for you!!! I loved the discriptions and insights into the characters, which sometimes made me laugh, sometimes smile, and even sometimes squirm. You do not have to come from a dance background to understand or like this piece either, it's easy to pick up, and I found I learnt a lot along the way.
An entracing, well reccommended read! I now have a new favourite authour, that's how much I loved it.
