"A Kiss Of A different Color" by Bettye Griffin was a good contemporary romantic read. It is a long slow read but in the end you will find a well developed story with likable 'characters that you were able to fall in love with as they did with each other.' This was a very interesting to see how this author was to get Miranda and Jon together...as they had an instant attraction to each other as they first danced together. There were be obstacles placed before them in this interracial relationship...'family's opinions, works' restriction on fraternization the their own personal baggage.' Be ready for a read of finding love in unexpected places where Jon was able to see 'hidden racial issues' while Miranda learned that John could be trusted with her heart. This was truly a love story and 'how attraction grows into a friendship and then into love.' ( )

Out of desperation, long-term unemployed physical therapy assistant Miranda Rhett leaves her home in Racine, Wisconsin, to take a job in employment-rich Bismarck, North Dakota. Once there, far away from anyone who would tease her about her lifelong dream of ballroom dancing, she signs up for lessons, providing the school can find her a partner. The school comes through in the form of handsome, sexy Jon Lindbergh, a recent transplant from Minnesota. Jon is as charming as he is agile on the dance floor, and Miranda soon finds herself falling for him. But Jon's family history of four generations of failed marriages has made a non-believer out of him. His primary interest seems to be hooking up with someone with whom to spend the bitterly cold North Dakota winter. Miranda doesn't believe in pursuing failure. An even bigger obstacle is their mutual employer's no-dating rule among employees on different rungs of the corporate ladder, which they instituted in the wake of a sexual harassment scandal. But with the magical sparks that pass between them every time they look at each other, and with an average high winter temperature in the single digits and frequent dips below zero, what's a girl to do? If she's Miranda, she does what comes naturally...and tries like hell to be the one to make a believer out of him..… (more)
