Default Where to find swash fonts?

I recently did a book, in both print and e-book, through Amazon KDP. I had the cover designed by a cover artist I found on Fiverr.com. I liked what she did, but .'.

She set the primary title in all caps, and for the "R" she used a version with a swash terminal descender. I wanted to match that for the inside title page, and I couldn't. She told me what font she used, and I had never heard of it. Worse, I have all the fonts that come with Windows XP, 7, and 10, plus I have a couple of old font collections I bought years ago and a new collection of 7,500 fonts I bought last year -- and I couldn't find anything with alternate, swash capitals.

The font is a fairly classic-looking serif font, not unlike Garamond or Caslon.

Where do you all go for swash caps?
