Tango, 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.

Praise from reviewers:
“Luna Tango has passion, mystery, exotic locales, and a thoroughly absorbing and wonderfully entertaining story.” —My Written Romance
“Let me also just say that this is one of those novels where you can judge a book by its cover because it is so striking and evocative of everything contained within, from the baroque architecture to the passionate embrace of a Tango dance. And, fear not if you have neither visited the country nor ever danced the Tango, because Alli’s writing is so assured that I guarantee you will be able to experience the exoticism of the place and the passion of the art form directly from your armchair. In fact, you might even find yourself taking a Tango lesson or two!”—Book Muster Down Under
“This one was a fun, entertaining and often page turning read that kept me up well into the evening” —Kathryn’s Inbox
“What an enjoyable read! Two stories weave a complicated tango between the pages, engaging the reader in past and present. As much as this is a story about tango, music and passion, it’s a story of self-discovery, and finding one’s true place and path.” —Write Note Reviews
“Luna Tango is a rollicking read.” — Review by Pam Jarvis, Editor of Tango Australis (Magazine for tango dancers in Australia and overseas)
