Ella Morgan is the new girl in the small town of Whistlestop, New Mexico. Having inherited a run down cabin in the woods, Ella is happy to have a new start and a clean slate in a place where nobody knows her. Temporarily working as a teacher, she hopes to procure a full time position, and become a permanent fixture in this beautiful place.

With one act of kindness Ella is thrown into the path of Tony Granger, firefighter, rancher, and the most gorgeous man she has ever set eyes on. Ella has a secret past that she will do anything to keep hidden. Tony is struggling with his new position as a parent to his nephew, Johnny. Having lost his brother and sister-in-law, Tony stepped up to fill their role, but he is lost. When Ella needs money to fix up her home, Tony offers to be her partner for Dancing with the Firefighters which comes with a cash prize, in return for tutoring Johnny. As a business arrangement leads to friendship and an intense attraction, both Ella and Tony struggle with their pasts, and as a wildfire threatens everyone in Whistlestop, will Ella's new life go up in flames?

A MOMENT TO DANCE by Jennifer Faye is an engaging, contemporary romance that ticks all of the boxes. Ella is deeply damaged by her past and has spent all of her life dealing with guilt and hiding her scars, both inside and out. Tony has also suffered pain in his life and does not want to be attracted to Ella. I fell in love with both characters as they tried to weave their way through all of their issues. With plenty of action and secondary characters that add lots of flavour, the storyline flowed naturally and at a good pace. I thoroughly enjoyed A MOMENT TO DANCE by Jennifer Faye and would highly recommend it.

SUMMARY

When trouble strikes…Whistle Stop pulls together

For Ella Morgan, moving to Whistle Stop is a chance to start over, put her horrific past behind her. But now she’s living in a mountain cabin—in dire need of renovation—that her grandmother left her, along with a sizable tax bill. Her job teaching school isn’t going to cover it. She needs cash, and soon.

Volunteer firefighter Tony Granger has returned to Whistle Stop to run the family ranch and be guardian to his orphaned nephew, Johnny. But being a single parent isn’t coming easy, and he’s worried sick he won’t succeed with his plan to adopt the boy, especially if Johnny’s grades don’t improve. He needs a break, and fast.

When Ella finds out Tony doesn’t have a partner for the Dancing With the Firefighters’ benefit—which is offering a large cash prize—and he hits upon hiring her as Johnny’s tutor, it looks like their problems might be solved. But taking dance lessons to win the competition sets alight a burning attraction between them. Can they let go and learn to trust again, or will the scars of their pasts still haunt them?
