Anton says - “I’ve always loved a good story. Until now I’ve only told them through dance. Now it’s time to take them to the page. It’s a huge challenge for me but one I am thrilled to be undertaking with the team at Bonnier Zaffre. I hope my readers will be as enchanted by my book as they would be by a perfect 10 for one of my routines.”

About the book

One Enchanted Evening

 Inside the spectacular ballroom of the exclusive Buckingham Hotel the rich and powerful, politicians, film stars, even royalty, rub shoulders with Raymond de Guise and his troupe of talented dancers from all around the world, who must enchant them, captivate them, and sweep away their cares. Accustomed to waltzing with the highest of society, Raymond knows a secret from his past could threaten all he holds dear.

Nancy Nettleton, new chambermaid at the Buckingham, finds hotel life a struggle after leaving her small hometown. She dreams of joining the dancers on the Grand Ballroom floor as she watches, unseen, from behind plush curtains and discreet doors. She soon discovers everyone at the Buckingham - guests and staff alike - has something to hide...
