Hazel Emmett tries not to let her left leg cerebral palsy defeat her - but sometimes it does. A fun filled romance might let her pretend to be normal for a while.

Dancer Romeo McGrath is mistakenly arrested and given community service as Hazel's assistant. After twenty nine of them, Romeo has had enough of women using him for their bad boy fling.   

To clear his name, he intends to find missing racehorses that have baffled the authorities. Hazel's limitations are a creative challenge so he lets her be his pretend partner.  

Between derelict stables, a charity chief with a secret, a double jobbing politician and dancing in strange places, Hazel or Romeo discover more than they expected. Before Romeo's sentence ends, they must figure out what is real and what is pretend.

Can I ask how old is the author. There is so much maturity in this book. Makes me dissapointed when I run into books that don't look as enticing as the cover
I love it!! I want to read more right now but it's past midnight and I should be asleep :-o You're a wonderful writer and I hope to be as good as you someday! ^_^ Also, I love how you added the photos in your chapter like that. I should do the same.

I'm intrigued. You've set up the conflict and the attraction quite well here. Plus who can resist a store called Retro Treats?

Thank you! Hazel and Romeo do meet under rather unusual circumstances.

This is a nice start. I like the way you use reality to mix the story into a more realistic scene. I also like seeing the characters thoughts, and the fact that you're making a story about cerebral palsy
