About this ebook

Enjoy this witty romantic comedy series starring strong women by award-winning author Laura Heffernan.

When politics meets pole fitness, Mel's life flips upside-down.

After Mel’s disastrous promotional video goes viral, a “family values” group launches a protest against her dance studio. Their leader isn’t just trying to stop her from teaching—he’s using Mel as a moral scapegoat for his own senate campaign. If he wins the upcoming election, he threatens to change the laws to keep all pole dancing out of their community. 

Mel’s no politician, but she's not not going down without a fight. Since running for office beats unemployment, she decides to face off against him. She hires campaign manager Daniel and tosses her hat in the ring. There’s just one problem: voters don’t understand pole. Mel needs to change her image, fast. If she can’t get the people on her side, she won’t have a business to save. She hires a campaign manager to get the community on her side. Daniel is smart, witty, and passionate about changing the world. As he rebrands Mel’s image, he captures her heart. But does he like Mel the dancer or Melody the candidate? Can Mel run for office and still protect her heart?


Poll Dancer is the first book in the Push and Pole series, although both can be read standing alone. This modern-day My Fair Lady  quirky romcom about a woman finding herself and love in the workplace will appeal to fans of forbidden love, strong heroines, and cinnamon roll heroes. Fans of Melissa Baldwin, Kate O'Keeffe, Melanie Summers, and Whitney Dineen will love to join Mel in a room somewhere for a pole fitness lesson.

About the author

Laura Heffernan is the award-winning, internationally best-selling author of fun, witty romantic comedies and more serious women’s fiction. After a few years of practicing law, she realized that she much preferred arguing with her characters rather than other people. It’s easier to win that way.

When not watching total strangers get married, drag racing queens, or cooking competitions, Laura enjoys board games, travel, board games, baking, and board games. She lives in the northeast with her husband, the world’s most active toddler, and two furry little beasts.

Some of Laura’s favorite things include goat cheese, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Battlestar Galactica, the Oxford comma, and ice cream. Not all together. The best place to find her is usually on Twitter, where she spends far too much time tweeting about writing, Canadian chocolate, board games and reality TV.

 Laura also writes magic and mayhem-filled mysteries as Ada Bell.
