Though West Side Publishing book editor Cassie Hayes now lives in Boca Raton, Florida, she has never shredded her New York City lifestyle, which means coffee at any hour. In the case of her top novelist, Michael Pearton that could mean three in the morning her time as he calls her from England whenever he suffers writer's block or needs phone sex. Cassie likes this relationship because she fears an in the flesh coupling.

Pulitzer Prize winning recluse Roland Riggs agrees to allow West Side to publish his first work since he won the Pulitzer for Simple Simon decades ago. His condition is that the editor resides in his remote home to teach him how to disco dance and court a woman because he is in love for the first since his wife was murdered. Cassie has the assignment that makes her stomach grind not so much because of the spicy food served or that she will be hustling her butt off, but because relationships are not her thing.   Yet when Michael becomes extremely jealous, as he loves his Floridian based editor, she begins to reconsider what life is all about encouraged by Roland's struggle to regain his.

SPANISH DISCO is an enjoyable contemporary romance that plays out on several levels as the cast consists of walking wounded souls. Though the tale evolves around gun shy Cassie, readers also obtain a reasonably deep look inside the souls of Roland, Maria (housekeeper and the love of his life), and Michael. Fans of dramas with a dysfunctional relationship theme as its core will want to disco with Erica Orloff's romantic romp.
