Valentine's Blog Hop #CBG

Have you bought your chocolates yet? It's nearly Valentine's Day. In celebration, I'm blog hopping with some other great authors.
It's a big week for me--I have a new book releasing on Tuesday. The book, Dancing in the White Room, is about skiing and love. What could be better for a big heart winter celebration?

Dancing in the white room is slang for skiing or boarding in deep powder snow. The dancer is PD Bell, one of the best extreme skiers on the planet. Mallory Prescott, the woman who lives with him and loves him, is used to Bell’s exploits. A patrol woman at Whiteface Mountain near Lake Placid, New York, Mallory is no stranger to risk. But this time Bell is taking on the West Rib of Denali, highest and most dangerous mountain in North America. It’s a descent that has never been done, though it’s been tried. Five years ago, Bell had tried it. The attempt nearly killed him. Five years ago, he promised Mallory he wouldn’t try it again.
     Over the six weeks in which he’s gone, Mallory begins to question her relationship with Bell. Does he really love her? Is he in it for the duration? What has loving him cost her?  Mallory’s life choices are thrown into stark relief when her daughter Emily takes a terrible fall. Together with her life-long friend Creech Creches, she must work her way through a maze of uncharted territory at a hospital miles from home.
            Dancing in the White Room is the story of the love we keep, the price we pay for that love, and the forgiveness it takes to hold on to what is precious.

I'll have more updates and some sneak peeks at Dancing later this week. Meanwhile, leave me a comment for a chance to win any one of my books you choose.

  1. Thanks for joining the hop, Ute. What a great post!

  2. Great post. Living in the South, I wouldn't know much about snow. I'm in Atlanta now, ready to hunker down for 1/2 inch of snow.

  3. Not one for cold, I'd rather read about skiing than do it-- and you're presenting a wonderful opportunity for me to do so! Looking forward to checking this one out, Ute!

  4. I like the snow and cold, but don't ski. Will be checking out your book, it sounds great.
