    5 STARS She was a fool. A nave, trusting, sheltered fool. And Gabe wanted to corrupt her so damned badly, his bones ached. See that pile of satisfied reader goo in the corner? The one clutching her kindle to her chest and making moon eyes at the sky? That, my friends, is this...

    Tessa Dare is back and this is the historical romance book you have been waiting for! I rarely give out five stars but I enjoyed this book too much not to. This book was hilarious! It reminded me a bit of Bea from Lisa Kleypas' Love in the Afternoon (another book I highly recommend), i...

    Having loved the first two books in Tessa Dare?s Girl Meets Duke series, I couldn?t wait to dive into this and see what delights lay in store for the group?s very own Dr. Dolittle, Penny. They called him the Duke of Ruin.? With a rags to riches background and bit of a r...

    Hmm, she says, hmm! I don't know why this didn't quite work for me. But I think my biggest gripe is how everything felt so.. glossy. Glossed over, I mean. Things move quick, we have so much potential for juicy backstory issues, and while they get time on-page.. not quite enough. ...
