Say My Name is my first novel. It's the story of a 48-year-old woman's love affair with a 28-year-old musician, a love affair bound together with music.  

Advance praise for say my name:

"It is a ravishing love story, hot-blooded, poignant, often dark, filled with yearning, sharply funny, marvellously observed: and you follow Eve every step of the way. I wished it would go on and on and never stop.” —Joanna Lumley

“Allegra Huston is a fluid, intelligent storyteller, a writer of beautiful, sexy prose. I love her frankly gleeful portrayal of a woman following her own desires and instincts, wherever they lead, to unexpected and unplanned adventures. Say My Name is the Fear of Flying for the 21st century.” —Kate Christensen, author of The Great Man and Trouble

Say My Name is a dazzling debut about a highly-charged and very sensual affair. Skilfully crafted, original and beautifully written, it is an engaging and erotic read. Loved it!” —Santa Montefiore, bestselling author of The Beekeeper’s Daughter, Secrets of the Lighthouse, and The French Gardener

“Beguilingly sexy and seriously smart all at once!  How unusual, how delightful, how fun!” —Lara Santoro, author of Mercy and The Boy

"At last. A sexy and serious novel that deals with that persistent prejudice - love between an "older woman" and a younger man. Sensational - and surprisingly sweet."  —Rachel Johnson, author of the Notting Hell trilogy

“Absolutely terrific: powerful, beautifully paced, controlled and assured. An extremely perceptive look into the female psyche.” —Elizabeth Buchan, prizewinning author of Consider the Lily and Revenge of the Middle-Aged Woman

“Intriguing, sexy and honest” —Joanna Briscoe, author of Sleep With Me

“A delicious novel – elegant, poignant, erotic” – Kate Beaufoy, author of The Gingerbread House and Liberty Silk  

“In this sensual novel Allegra Huston lays barethe rules of love and attraction, portraying with great insight the vulnerability that comes with the urgency of infatuation, along with its dangers.” — Francesca Marciano, author of The Rules of the Wild and The Presence of Men
