Dancing with the Stars pro Karina Smirnoff is engaged to Jason Adelman, PEOPLE has confirmed.

The happy news caps a whirlwind romance for the duo, who have been dating for less than a year.

Smirnoff, 37, was previously engaged to fellow DWTS pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy. They, too, had a whirlwind romance – they began to date in the summer of 2008 before getting engaged in December 2008. They split in September 2009.

Not long after her breakup from Chmerkovskiy, Smirnoff began dating MLB pitcher Brad Penny in October 2009. He popped the question one year later, in October 2010, but the engagement ended in December 2011.

Smirnoff is set to mine her personal life for material: She’ll release a book about her romantic adventures, titled We’re Just Not That Into You: Dating Disasters from the Trenches, on Feb. 10.
