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.

Hurrah! Today is the day I get to send Ash and Emma’s story out into the hands of readers.


Readers, they’re yours. Take good care of these two, if you will. I’ve grown quite fond of them. ❤
