They say a woman never forgets her first love, and Maricel Cardona hasn't forgotten Ramón Morales. She remembers dancing all night in Ramón's arms to the sensual beat of their homeland, Puerto Rico. When her family forced her to move to the States, she didn't know she was carrying Ramón's child. A self-made multi-millionaire, Ramón hasn't forgotten Maricel and the passion he felt dancing with her. Now, at the pinnacle of his success, he's withdrawn from the world to safeguard his own secret. A secret that, if revealed, would change his life forever. Reunited after twenty-seven years, will the high school sweethearts get a second chance at love, or will their secrets tear them apart?

The inspiration for "To Dance Again," came from a real-life medical situation that one of my husband's cousins from Puerto Rico faced. He came and stayed with us in Texas to get a second medical opinion for his condition and gave me the idea for the central conflict that faces the hero in this story.
The heroine's central conflict grew out of my musings as to what might happen to two young sweethearts who are separated by a thousand miles and their parents' wishes. In that sense, the story is a modern-day Romeo and Juliet, but not so acrimonious. They continue with their lives and then twenty-seven years later, when they're both single again, they are reunited but with a life-altering secret between them. This scenario so intrigued me that I had to explore the story and flesh it out.
This book is all about secrets, learning to trust again, and a second chance at love. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.
Placing his glass on the coffee table, he half-turned toward her. "When did you realize you loved me? And what kind of love is it? Are you in love with me as a man or as a fond memory?"
Her head pounded. Too much booze. Too many questions.
Why was he doing this--giving her the third degree? And who gave him the right, rubbing her nose in it? Fury flooded her but rather than stay and fight, she wanted to run away. She needed to get away from him, like when they'd been driving.
But she wouldn't run. Not this time. Instead, she threw caution to the winds. "I've always loved you, Ramón, from the very beginning, since we were kids."
He crossed his leg and ran his hand down the pleat of his pants, as if to smooth it. His action was so controlled, so cool and collected, she wanted to scream.
"You could have fooled me," he said. "You went to the States with your parents and never looked back. I begged you to return and marry me. You kept putting me off."
"You mean you couldn't wait. Your impatience and pride got the better of you." She took a deep breath. "You were supporting your mother, for heaven's sake. We both needed degrees to survive."
"Did we? We were young and in love; we would have gotten by." The tone of his voice was uncommonly hard, unforgiving as stone.
So this was it. He wanted her to pay for an ancient wrong? But he'd been in the wrong, too; he hadn't known how much she'd needed him.
