Rogues Rush In coverAvailable Now!

ROGUES RUSH IN, a Regency romance duet featuring me and the wonderful Christi Caldwell! If you’ve never read Christi, you are in for such a treat. Her books are heartfelt and oh-so-romantic.

This duet features two all-new novellas, and it’s available now! (Links: Kindle, Nook, iBooks, Kobo) A print edition is also available to order here.

RUSH to read it! (Sorry. I couldn’t help myself. 😂)

Two scandalous brides…
Two rogues who won’t be denied…

His Bride for the Taking by Tessa Dare

It’s the first rule of friendship among gentlemen: Don’t even think about touching your best friend’s sister. But Sebastian, Lord Byrne, has never been one for rules. He’s thought about touching Mary Clayton—a lot—and struggled to resist temptation. But when Mary’s bridegroom leaves her waiting the altar, only Sebastian can save her from ruin. By marrying her himself.

In eleven years, he’s never laid a finger on his best friend’s sister. Now he’s going to take her with both hands. To have, to hold…and to love.

His Duchess for a Day by Christi Caldwell

It was never meant to be…
That’s what Elizabeth Terry has told herself while trying to forget the man she married–her once best friend. Passing herself off as a widow, Elizabeth has since built a life for herself as an instructor at a finishing school, far away from that greatest of mistakes. But the past has a way of finding you, and now that … Read More »

The Governess Game, book two in the “Girl Meets Duke” series, now has a book description and a release date! (August 28, 2018) The cover will be coming soon. It’s gorgeous, and I can’t wait to share it!

I know, August is far away. I wish I wrote faster, I really do. But the book is available for preorder on Amazon, and probably will be on other retailers soon, so if you preorder it now, you won’t have to remember in August. 😉 Or sign up for my newsletter, and you’ll always get an email when I have a new book out—along with announcements of any special contests or sale prices.

I want to thank all my readers for the amazing love you gave The Duchess Deal. I’m proud to share that the book was honored on several “Best of 2017” lists, including Amazon, Entertainment Weekly, Library Journal, and Vulture. It was also a New York Times and USA Today bestseller. I’m so grateful for all the lovely support for Emma and Ash’s story. Whether you bought it, borrowed it from a library, listened to it, recommended it to a friend, or reviewed it on your favorite site…thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Wishing you a New Year filled with peace, joy, and romantic reads.

It’s finally almost here! Release day for The Duchess Deal is just a month away. But you can start reading it now, if you like! The first chapter is posted here on my website. If that’s not enough for you, the first two chapters are available in a fantastic free sampler put together by Publishers Weekly.

If you are anywhere near Orlando, Florida on Saturday, July 29th, I dearly hope you’ll join me and about 400 other romance authors at the Romance Writers of America “Readers for Life” autographing at the Walt Disney World Dolphin Resort. The signing is from 3 to 5 pm, and it’s open to the public. Check out the list of participating authors here. All the books are donated by the publishers, so all net proceeds go to local and national literacy charities. Over the years, RWA signings have raised more than $1,000,000 for literacy! Come meet some of your favorite authors (Fingers crossed that I’m one of them!) and buy a few books to support a great cause.… Read More »

Over the past year, I’ve received many letters and questions from readers about the characters from When a Scot Ties the Knot — Maddie, Logan, Aunt Thea, and all of Logan’s men. It seems that many wanted to know that they all ended happily, and I did, too. So I wrote a bonus epilogue as a way to peek in on them a few years later. It got a bit long, so I decided to split it into three parts.

I hope you enjoy spending a bit more time at Lannair Castle. I wish you and yours the very happiest of holidays and a brilliant start to 2017!… Read More »

If the Marquess of Granville had made up his mind to be her champion... It would take a stronger woman than Charlotte to refuse.
