Release day: Luna Tango

1 August 2014

Today is the official release of Luna Tango by Alli Sinclair (paperback and ebook, Harlequin MIRA). Here’s the blurb:

Luna TangoTango, like love, is complicated

Desperate to understand the reason her mother abandoned her twenty years ago to become a world-class tango dancer, journalist Dani McKenna delves into the world of tango in the hope of exposing decades of lies and deception that have threatened three generations of her family.

When Dani meets the enigmatic Carlos Escudero—a revered tango dancer and man of intense passion—they work together to help her understand why her grandmother lives in fear of all things tango, and how the brutal murder of a tango music legend in Buenos Aires now affects her family.

Despite her lack of rhythm, Dani and Carlos create their own dance of the souls, until the differences in their cultures causes a deep rift. As she seeks to reconnect with Carlos and rebuild her family, Dani finds tango—the dance of passion—becomes a complicated dance of betrayal.

Alli dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:

Luna Tango is set in beautiful Argentina, a country that is very close to my heart. While living in Argentina I had the opportunity to experience tango but had never really thought about writing a story about this captivating dance and music. It wasn’t until years later, when I was missing Argentina immensely after I had moved back to Australia, that the idea of featuring tango in a story crossed my mind. I’ve always been a sucker for family sagas, mysteries, and romance so it was fun (and quite the challenge) to weave these together in a story that spans three generations. I’m currently working on two other books in the Dance Card series–Flamenco Fire and Turning Pointe–and I’m looking forward to getting to know the characters and finding out what adventures they will take readers on.

You can find out more about this book at Alli’s website, watch the trailer here, or buy it from Harlequin.

Release day is also the launch of a super special competition. The winner will receive a one-off prize that has been created especially for this competition. Visit Alli’s blog for more information.
