The Midnight Dance

Author: Nikki Katz

Publisher: Swoon
Release Date: October 17, 2017


When the music ends, the dance begins.

Penny is a dancer at the Grande Teatro, a finishing school where she and 11 other young women are training to become the finest ballerinas in Italy. Tucked deep into the woods, the school is overseen by the mysterious and handsome young Master who keeps the girls ensconced in the estate and in the only life Penny has ever known.

When new memories appear, showing a life very different from the one she thought she'd been leading, Penny begins to question the Grand Teatro and the motivations of the Master. With the sweet kitchen boy, Cricket, at her side, Penny vows to escape the confines of her school and the strict rules that dictate every step she takes. But at every turn, the Master finds a way to stop her, and Penny must find a way to escape the school and uncover the secrets of her past before it's too late.

Why I'm Excited: This sounds a bit odd, but ballerinas is one of my go-to subjects. I wanted to be a dancer so badly when I was a girl, and still just love everything about the ballet. Also Italy. Also this gorgeous cover. I'll definitely be keeping my eyes out for this one. 

What are you waiting for on this Wednesday? Link me up!


  1. This was very nearly my pick this week, too! The cover is so stunning and I'm assuming this is sort of a retelling of 12 Dancing Princesses? Definitely one to be excited about! :D

  2. Is this a retelling? I read another book based on the Dancing Princesses, which was a first for me. I am definitely intrigued by this one and that cover is gorgeous. Great pick!

  3. I saw the cover reveal very recently! I was blown away - it's an amazing cover. Swoon Romance has some really great titles published and to be published. :D I hope you enjoy this book when you get a chance to read it!

    Have a great week, Natalie. =)

    Check out my WoW post!

  4. Oooh, this does sound intriguing. I'll definitely be keeping an eye out for this one. Thanks for the heads-up!


Hello, there! Thanks for taking the time to comment. I read each and every one and will do my best to respond--usually on your blog instead of on mine. I will, however, always answer direct questions. Due to serious time restraints, this blog is now an award free zone, but I appreciate the thought!
