“Claudia, what do I always tell you? Salsa comes from the hips! Now, move!”
My face flamed as Kosta, my Serbian-born salsa instructor, squared himself in front of me, then grabbed my hips and tried to emulate the smooth gyrations that were coming from his own. When I snuck a glimpse of myself in the mirror, I decided I looked more like a swollen purple balloon jiggling atop a pair of stilts than the Latin dance goddess Kosta expected.
And of all nights, tonight was not the night to look like a swollen anything.

His deadpan gaze sent a chill down my spine. “Detective Duval,” he said with a cold nod. “But I trust you remember my name by now since we have already met twice this week.”
Trusting me to remember anything accurately right now was a terrible idea, but I wasn’t going to tell him that.

SYNOPSIS

In Paris, a past life promises a second chance at love. 

Straitlaced marriage therapist Claudia Davis had a plan–and it definitely did not involve getting pregnant from a one-night stand or falling for a gorgeous French actor. She thinks her life can’t possibly get more complicated. But when Claudia takes a tumble in her grandmother’s San Diego dance studio, she awakens in 1950s Paris in the body of Ruby Kerrigan, the glamorous star of a risque cabaret–and the number-one suspect in the gruesome murder of a fellow dancer. As past lives go, it’s a doozy…especially when an encounter with a handsome and mysterious French doctor ignites a fire in Claudia’s sinfully beautiful new body.

But time, for all its twists and turns, is not on her side: Claudia has just five days to unmask the true killer, clear Ruby’s name, and return to the twenty-first century. To do so, she must make an impossible choice, one that will change the course of both of her lives forever. [from the author’s website]
