Tessa Dare is the New York Times bestselling, award-winning author of more than a dozen historical romances. A librarian by training and a book-lover at heart, Tessa makes her home in Southern California, where she shares a cozy, cluttered bungalow with her husband, their two children, and a pair of cosmic kittens.
Dare once again works her own irresistible brand of magic by taking a cast of richly nuanced characters, a deliciously clever plot... and a generous measure of addictively tart wit, and then she spins the whole thing into pure literary gold. --Booklist (starred review) Sexy, tender, and wickedly funny, Dare's newest offering is a spirited tale with a Beauty-and-the-Beast theme and the perfect launch for her latest series. --Library Journal (starred review)
