A small town girl with a big imagination, Tamara Hughes had no idea what to do with her life. After graduating from college, she moved to a big city, started a family and a job, and still struggled to find that creative outlet she craved. An avid reader of romance, she gave writing a try and became hooked on the power of exploring characters, envisioning adventures, and creating worlds. She enjoys stories with interesting twists and heroines who have the grit to surmount any obstacle, all without losing the ability to laugh.

“You are an exceedingly beautiful mystery, one that intrigues me and one that I plan to solve.”
Tamara Hughes, Once Upon a Masquerade

“Sometimes people do misguided things for the most honorable of reasons.”
Tamara Hughes, Once Upon a Masquerade

“Catherine bristled at the amusement in his voice. He could laugh all he wanted when he stood tied to a wall utterly naked. A little humiliation might do him good.”
Tamara Hughes, His Pirate Seductress

“Whether David believed in her affliction or not didn’t change the fact that it existed, and some day it would catch up with her.”
Tamara Hughes, Beauty's Curse

“He’d do what was best for her. He’d take her to safety and send her back home to a bright future…with a
more honorable man than him. The stick broke in his hand, and he muttered an oath. All he wanted was for Amelia to be safe and happy, dammit. That and to beat every honorable man in England into the dust.”
