Tessa Dare became my happy place lately.
All her books have everything I LOVE in romance and her prose has something magical and refreshing. I’m not sure how she does it but each and every book of hers sends me directly to my happy place.
She never ever fails to make laugh out loud, swoon and sigh of pleasure. She just makes me so damn happy!
I have many favorite authors and books, but very few of them actually make it up my “happy place” shelf. They all must check the following criterias.
-Books I can’t put down
-Books I don’t want to end ever. EVER.
-Books I can binge on
-Books I can re-read
-Heartbreaking and sweet romance
-Books that make me happy
She writes the most unique heroines, smart and a little nutty. Endearing young ladies!
And the men… Sigh. Of course she would pair her lovely heroines with stern and brooding lads. You know the type, self-assured, sulking Lords doubling as notorious rakes. Sigh.
And the romance is just SO GOOD!
☞I can’t stress this enough, if you’re new to Historical Romance, if you’re afraid it might not be ‘your thing’, then give this author a try, it reads like a contemporary, heavy on the humor, packed with steam and happy feels.
Tessa Dare is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of fourteen historical romance novels and five novellas. Her books have won numerous accolades, including Romance Writers of America’s prestigious RITA® award (twice) and the RT Book Reviews Seal of Excellence. Booklist magazine named her one of the “new stars of historical romance,” and her books have been contracted for translation in more than a dozen languages.
Mixing wit, sensuality, and emotion, Tessa writes Regency-set romance novels that feel relatable to modern readers. With her bestselling “Spindle Cove” and “Castles Ever After” series, she has had great fun creating heroines who defy the conventions of their time—engaging in “unladylike” pursuits that range from paleontology to beer-making—and dreaming up the strong-willed, sexy heroes who find their hearts ensnared by them.
A librarian by training and a booklover at heart, Tessa makes her home in Southern California, where she lives with her husband, their two children, and a trio of cosmic kitties.
