The first review for SwanSong came in! It’s by by Jenn Bradshaw of Thrice Read Books, who kindly sent me the draft so I could put it in the Editorial Reviews section of SwanSong’s Amazon page 🙂
Allie McCormack comes through again with the premier of her multicultural romance series, Sons of the Desert. Swansong is the story of Sarah and Khalid – a seemingly carefree dancer and the scholar-sheikh.
Sarah feels like an entirely different woman as she steps out onto the floor as Cassandra, when she performs as a belly dancer for the first time. Cassandra is the antithesis to Sarah’s demure, shy personality, and the wild, sexy dancer has caught the eye of a wealthy Arab man.
Khalid knows, from the moment Cassandra catches his eye, that he must get to know the woman behind the veil, who captures the spirit of the music in her every move on the floor. But the woman eludes him, and when he finally manages to corner her and convince her to go to coffee with him, he discovers someone who can end his loneliness.
Sarah has secrets, though, and her upbringing has trained her well to play her cards close to the vest. Can they overcome her past to love all the way to forever?
Swansong is an adult, multicultural romance set in sunny Santa Barbara, California. Rich settings and beautifully rendered characters sit in a plot that will keep you turning page after page. This is book 1 in the series, and a fantastic addition to Allie McCormack’s contemporary romance portfolio.
