'You run your heart like a hotel - you got guys checking in and out all the time’
Charity Hope Valentine fantasises about three things in life: romance, luxury and escaping the questionable clientele of the Fandango Ballroom.
Lovable, gullible and spirited, she longs to find a lover who can sweep her off her feet but guided by the ‘fickle finger of fate’, Charity is always handing over her heart (and her earnings) to the wrong man. There’s Charlie tattooed on her arm, movie star Vittorio Vidal and then there’s Oscar. But will any of them be her one true love?
Charity’s romantic highs and lows entertain and dismay her fellow dancers but in trying to shake off the past, will she ever be able to live happily ever after?
