It is 1944 Paris. The Black Swan is a hugely popular singer – and is an unknowing member of the French Resistance – a British officer is posing as her manager, using her to mingle with the elite of the Nazi regime. Estranged from her family, she learns that her parents and sister are also resisters. Her father has been killed, and her mother captured. Her mother is aware of the coming Allied invasion, and the resistance must either rescue her or kill her before fatal Nazi torture. The Black Swan is a Harlequin release; ergo, there is romance.
It’s always a pleasure to read historical novels – history intermingled with fictional characters and how events influence lives. Although a romance, there is no explicit sex, limited objectionable language that isn’t character-driven, nothing gratuitous.
The Black Swan of Paris is written by Karen Robards, narrated by Nancy Peterson, seventeen hours of listening in unabridged audiobook format and released in June 2020 by Harlequin Audio.
