The Dancing Master

by Julie Kasslen

Scroll to the end for the Kindle HDX giveaway and Facebook Party


Finding himself the man of the family, London dancing master Alec Valcourt moves his mother and sister to remote Devonshire, hoping to start over. But he is stunned to learn the village matriarch has prohibited all dancing, for reasons buried deep in her past.

Alec finds an unlikely ally in the matriarch’s daughter. Though he’s initially wary of Julia Midwinter’s reckless flirtation, he comes to realize her bold exterior disguises a vulnerable soul–and hidden sorrows of her own.

Julia is quickly attracted to the handsome dancing master–a man her mother would never approve of–but she cannot imagine why Mr. Valcourt would leave London, or why he evades questions about his past. With Alec’s help, can Julia uncover old secrets and restore life to her somber village…and to her mother’s tattered heart?

Filled with mystery and romance, The Dancing Master brings to life the intriguing profession of those who taught essential social graces for ladies and gentlemen hoping to make a “good match” in Regency England.

This was my first book about a Dancing Master and I found it quite entertaining! When reading The Dancing Master, I found myself being taking back the Regency England, and I was surrounded by the people and atmosphere, the rich and those with not so much money. Julie Kasslen weaves together a story that will sneak into your heart and steal your attention, and won’t let go, even when you finish reading. I love the masterful way Julie Kasslen has of telling a story. When I saw the cover of The Dancing Master I knew I was in for a wonderful and awesome treat.

Julie was pretty much treated like a queen, but she surely didn’t feel like one. Her mom was so strict she would barely let Julie out of her sight, and the memories of her dad were ice cold and impersonal. It was only when she met the Dancing Master that she started feeling cared for. But the lady of the house was going to make sure the Master stayed as far away from her daughter as possible, and she sure wasn’t going to allow any dancing anywhere near her home. But things start falling apart when Julie started snooping in the attic and asking questions. And since I don’t like giving anything away, the rest is for you to find out when you read this really awesome book by Julie Kasslen.
