Praise for Say My Name:

“Huston’s prose is spare and at times wonderfully poetic. Readers who are looking for a more internal, thoughtful read will want to try this debut.” —Library Journal, December 2017

“This sensual tale of self-discovery and empowerment that’s sure to please fans of romantic women’s fiction.” — Booklist, November 1, 2017

“In fast-paced but thoughtful prose, Huston challenges traditional assumptions about relationships and shows beauty being discovered in unlikely places. A new take on the May-December romance, perfect for fans of unexpected gifts.”   — Kirkus Reviews,October 15, 2017
