Take the Lead
Growing up in foster care, Officer Traci Lucky had a rough start to life, but things are looking up now that she's found a place in Bridgeport with two sisters she never knew she had. One night while on the job Traci finds Gwen, a pregnant teen caught up in a dangerous world of drugs, and takes her straight to the hospital. There Traci encounters the oh-so-charming Dr. Matt Rossi, who surprises Traci with his compassion-and his movie-star good looks.
A busy ob-gyn with a huge, meddling Italian family, Matt Rossi hasn't had much time for love in his life. All that changes when he meets the beautiful Officer Lucky. He's intrigued by her strength and the kind heart she tries to hide beneath her tough exterior.
When Matt confides that he needs to learn to waltz for his brother's wedding, Traci reveals that her sister happens to be a ballroom dance teacher. Next thing they know, Matt and Traci are juggling busy careers, helping young Gwen with her pregnancy and personal safety, and learning to waltz together. But when Gwen's escalating problems threaten to put all of them in danger, they wonder if they'll ever find time for a little romance too.
Shelley Shepard Gray takes us back to Bridgeport, Ohio, a town where family comes in all different shapes and sizes, love has no limits, and community means everyone deserves a little help when they're lost.
