    • book: Dance] is, as far as I'm concerned, the single best historical romance title, ever. And it has some tough competition for that spot.Cuevas writes beautifully, but more than that, she tells a compelling, engaging and still subtle story. This one is about a young woman returning home to Paris to make moving pictures, a new field. She is at odds with her father but no longer so intimidated by him as she had been. The brother of the man she left at the altar is there, recently widowed. He is e [...]


    • The trouble with reading such a perfect romance novel is that you then have take a break from the genre for a bit because in the wake of such a well written romance all else, even good stuff, will pale. Ms. Cuevas has a written a story of two adults who know their minds but are nonetheless caught in the tug and pull of an attraction the goes beyond the physical and how they learn to unbend from firmly established preconceptions in able to truly see the & accept the other person. Besides this [...]


    • Finally done! This was such a slog for me. I struggled to get through it, and I never really got attached to the characters. I had a lot distracting me during the days I read this, though, so maybe it was my problem, not the book's. If you guys read and love it, it'll be another Seize the Fire situation where I'm the only one who just doesn't get it.


    • I did not enjoy this book as much as Bliss. But I read it right after the first book. It might be the same phenomenon as eating two pints of delicious ice cream in a row and saying that the second one was not as tasty as the first. Same ice cream though.


    • For some reason, I didn't expect this to be a sequel to Bliss. I liked this book so much better than that one. Two of the characters who were never far from the action in Bliss come center stage in Dance - Sebastian (Nardi's brother in Bliss) and Marie (Nardi's betrothed in Bliss) share a moment of passion that galvanizes both of them into self-discovery. I liked this one especially because it has the rich scenery of Bliss, without the cruelty. Marie can be frustrating at times with her absolute [...]


    • Flabbergastingly good. This book avoids the errors of fact that marred some of her earlier work but brings alive two more complex people in a fascinating setting featuring an a disreputable but fashionable painter, silent movie making, and an idyll in the French countryside.If only people were still writing books this wonderful!


    • Well, this is one of those rare times when a sequel is a far stronger work than the first book (Bliss). I adore this one. Too bad that it's out of print and a bit hard to get ahold of, and Judy Cuevas/Judith Ivory seems to have stopped writing. Such a shame.


    • (view spoiler)[Cheater warning: Hero did have a tryst with the heroine while (he was) married, but it is only told through memories/flashbacks. (hide spoiler)]


    • I read Bliss several years ago but didn't find a (cheap) copy of Dance until a few months back. All I remembered from Bliss was that Nardi drank ether, but that's OK--Dance worked perfectly as a story in its own right. Judy Cuevas's writing is beautiful, rich, full of words and phrases that look and sound interesting and arresting. I also like how she gets the interplay between languages, how she is ostensibly writing an English translation of French conversations and will play with that idea wi [...]


    • LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE. This book deserves a review that lives up to the gorgeous quality of the writing itself, but I am inadequate and incapable and my head hurts right now. I wish so much, that Judy Cuevas/Judith Ivory were still writing. No one compares to her, for me. No one. I'd read anything. Her grocery list even. She is that remarkable.I hope to return later and give a better description of all the things I loved about Dance. Well worth the $25+ I spent tracking down an out [...]





    • I'm sad that Cuevas has been able to write. states it is due to back problems. Fascinating French backdrop to romance. The heroine is an early filmmaker.



    • SO I'VE JUST READ BLISS AND DANCE, WHICH I GUESS ARE JUDITH IVORY WRITING UNDER A DIFFERENT NAME. WHAT IS HER NEXT BEST ONE? I LIKED THOSE TWO AND WANT TO READ MOAR.
