Luna Tango by Alli Sinclair

Tango, like love, is complicated

Journalist Dani McKenna delves into the world of tango to expose the decades of lies and deception that threaten three generations of her family. She’s desperate to understand the reason her mother abandoned her twenty years ago to become a world-class tango dancer, why her grandma lives in fear of all things tango, and how the brutal murder of a tango music legend in 1950s Buenos Aires now affects her family.

Dani meets the enigmatic Carlos Escudero, a revered tango dancer and man of intense passion, who helps her unravel tango’s sordid history. Despite Dani’s lack of rhythm, they 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, tango – the dance of passion – becomes a complicated dance of betrayal.

Hey! Here's my review.

I am always on the lookout for books that feature dancing, especially partner dancing. I had my eye on Luna Tango for a while, and how could you not with a cover like that! The passion displayed on the cover continued in the novel, and had me longing to read the sensual dance scenes even more than the bedroom ones (though they were swoon worthy too).

I related most to the modern storyline and enjoyed seeing how the two timelines came together. I loved Carlos voice - I could just hear him speaking in that sexy, Argentine, English-is-not-my-first-language way. Swoon. I just wanted to throw myself at him and tango! Vertically, horizontally, either way would be fine with me!

This was a fantastic debut from Alli and I can't wait to read the next book in the Dance Cards Series. I was so excited to win an autographed copy of Luna Tango in a competition on Facebook and I loved using one of the matching bookmarks while reading it.
