Dance instructor Rory Callahan likes to play it safe . When she meets Kyle , he ‟ s impulsive , persistent , and her exact opposite . He ‟ s pushing her to tango way past her comfort zone and keeping Rory on her toes more than twenty years of dance teachers ever had .

After all , her parents imagine her as a proper princess — hence her name : Aurora , a . k . a . Sleeping Beauty . Complicating matters , Rory ‟ s also dealing with a surgeon boyfriend who ‟ s perfect for her ( sort of ), an obnoxious boss , and desperate dance moms .

An Excerpt
High above the crowded beach , an airplane skimmed the cloudless blue sky , its hum a distant whine over the thunderous surf . Behind it trailed a banner with red block letters . Cupping her hand over her brow , Rory Callahan squinted in the glaring sunlight . WILL YOU MARRY ME , RORY ? She gasped , and her bare feet pressed into the gritty sand . Rory gripped the sides of her sunken beach chair . Her boyfriend , Dr . Brad Walker , a general surgery medical resident at Mountain View Medical Center , occupied the second chair , engrossed in a sports magazine and oblivious to the romantic gesture — or pretending he was oblivious .
Rory had accompanied him to the Jersey Shore for his parents ‟ thirtieth anniversary party . When Brad suggested a morning at the beach before driving back to the Catskills , she never expected a marriage proposal . Her stomach clenched , the semiqueasy reaction surprising her .
